We can not stress this enough when it comes to your forklift or materials handling equipment. The importance of regular Preventative Maintenance services carried out on your Materials Handling equipment cannot be overlooked.
Quite often equipment such as forklifts work in harsh environments, they rely on various lubricants to keep them in good working order. With regular servicing your oils and lubricants are changed and/or checked regularly, safety components are also checked and full report given. Regular servicing of your Materials Handling Equipment also ensures less downtime between services.
There are so many things that can be looked at when regular servicing is being done. Things like excessive tyre wear significantly increases the risk of damaging components like steering & mast rollers.
Tyres should be checked during every service & breakdown visit by our Field Service Technicians. A decent equipment dealer will have a computerized service system, that will both log any service work done, and as well as programming your equipment for service intervals as agreed.
With business these days, operating more and more hours, its important to look for a Forklift dealer that can provide you the flexibility to service when it best suits your business.
That way its less disruptive to your business schedule. Most mechanical based business such as a forklift dealer, will have fully equipment service vans on the road, capable of handling any type of repair to your Materials Handling Equipment, whether it be a simple service to a full strip down and rebuild.
With Fully Trained Technicians and strict quality control systems in place your satisfaction should be guaranteed as well as ensuring that the most current WH&S requirements are covered.
A yearly Major Service and Respray can help keep your equipment running efficiently and looking new.
A lot of dealers also have their own tiltrays on the road, so they can actually pick your forklift up and take it back to their workshop for major repairs, don;t forget you can also ask for a support forklift for the interim period that they are working on yours.
