Technical help

Whilst we know tape measures pretty much inside out, there will be questions that even we can’t answer. Whilst our team are made up of former surveyors, engineers and tradesmen, only you know how you and your trade will use a tool.

To make things easier for you we’ve put together a list of tape measure manufacturers who are only too happy to provide free technical advice on everything from how to use your tape to how to care for it properly. Please do bear in mind that not all manufacturers provide technical support for their products over the phone in the UK. If you don't have any luck with the numbers or email addresses below you may have to consider contacting a head office in another country.

That said, here at The Tape Store, we're 100% committed to providing the very best service possible to our customers, past and present. If you're having difficulties with your tape and don't get any joy from the manufacturers please do get in touch through our Contact Page. We'll flex our muscle and see what can be done on your behalf...
