Contacting Makita Customer Service Center

Makita is a power tool company specializing in the commercial or industrial site of the business. There is a ton of information on the tools Makita sells, but customer service information is lacking. Surprisingly, all the information customers are looking for is located on the Makita customer service page, but some is a bit hidden from the naked eye.

Official Website

The official site for Makita Power Tools is The site does a great job of describing Makita tools. There is also a website at that appears to be an alternative website for the Makita company. This second website is listed on the Makita Facebook page.

Customer Service Email

We could not find a customer service email address or form for Makita customer service. There is a free registration page, so customers who want to contact Makita by email may be able to access an email form from there. We attempted to access the contact page for the website, but the site was extremely slow and frozen several times during the loading process. The main Makita website was also very laggy making it difficult to navigate the site.

Our Experience

When customers contact the customer service department, there are three (3) options. The third option connected customers directly to a live agent. In less than 2 minutes, we were able to ask the agent what is the typical return time when sending in a product for repair and is there a direct link to the return center.

The agent answered the questions as followed. Although the company attempts to return products as soon as possible, the return time depends on the nature of the problem. Also. the customers can press two (2) when calling the customer support hotline for return services. Do you want to share your experiences? Shout out below.

  1. i recently brought a 18v 1834 it only last 30 minutes of continuous work is this normal? the battery pack also sticks in my jr180d what can be done to cure this problem?

  2. Called Makita April 11th with a question about the 1830 batteries. Was told someone would call me today well it 9pm and did not receive a call. I wanted to know if the batteries were rebuilable? I spent over 1500 dollars on some cordless tools and I have had 4 dead batteries. I have 2 dead batteries now. I cannot afford to keep buying batteries. If they can be rebuilt I will go that route if not Doesnt anybody need to buy some used cordless tools? I will make a real deal on them. Then I could go buy some more, but I will gaurantee you that they will not be makita. I also have a cordless drill that is less than 3 years old that I purchased when I needed some replacement batteries that needs a new chuck. I also have a Makita circular saw the needs repair that has probably been used for 3 hours total. If these tools were used alot I would not be so upset, but these tols have been used very little. A few home remodel projects. What ever happened to taking care of your customers?

  3. Makita sucks. Customer service sucks and their tools suck. I will never buy another tool from them again. The BL 1830 battery is defective. I used the drill a few times and now have two dead batteries. Fucking garbage.

  4. I received a orbit makita sander as a gift model BO5010. I didn’t try to use it till now. OMG! The pad is completely black stick crumbs. I thought this my a good brand name. Never got to use it once. It’s sitting in the box.

  5. Received a Makita drill bit chuck to go in my Dewalt driver as a Christmas present in Dec 2013. First time I used it, today, May 1, the shaft snapped off the chuck. Called customer service and they kept asking for a serial number on the chuck. And I kept telling them there is no serial number, just Makita, Cap. 1.5-10 and USA and UK patented , Japan. Only alternative is to ship to a repair center. Believe me this will not be repaired. Shaft looks like pop metal and cost of shipping will be half price of a new one. I am very disappointed in the quality of this Makita drill chuck and the remedies for replacement or return of initial cost. It will be considered when I purchase my next tool.

  6. This week I bought a cordless 6.5 skill saw my cordless about four years old comes with a charger and two battery so what is so wrong they made a change so I can’t use my battery pack with out buying a new drill t can’t see the reason totally wrong

  7. Recently purchased a 1/2″ impact. The Makita has excellent power however the battery doesn’t have the longevity I’m used too in a tool. I went to purchase additional batteries and was shocked at the $100.00 per battery price. How much profit do you require? Made in China and they sell for $100.00 its unreal. Probably cost $5 to produce. Oh well pawn shop here I come.
