Forklift Servicing


The Importance of Forklift Servicing

If you take the two minutes needed to watch the video above you will probably not need to read the rest of this page on forklift servicing.

Our friends over at Toyota Materials Handling explain it very well in the clip.

Forklift Breakdown

If you stop to consider the cost of your forklift truck breaking down it might surprise you. Just imagine if you are expecting a delivery and your forklift driver tells you his forklift is broken down and needs to be repaired. You might soon realise the cost in terms of the additional standing time the delivery company will make to you. This could be anywhere up to £100.00 per hour. If your operation is a “just in time” process you might want to consider what the cost of your production stopping. Do you want your staff standing around costing your business money?

Forklift servicing regularly will make sure the availability is there 100% of the time. Scheduling a service is easy and cost effective. Depending on the number of hours your forklift works will dictate the service intervals. We can help advise you on this and our service manager will happily discuss this with you.

Forklift Servicing £49.00

Routine servicing starts from as little as £49.00 per visit and includes all of the consumables required. We have service plans available to you as well. We can offer annual fully inclusive service packages that include everything you need. These packages do not include damage to the forklift trucks. If you find you have a lot of damage to your forklifts we can organise a driver refresher course.

All forklift trucks must be serviced regularly as part of the LOLER certification process and we have engineers available now. Please feel free to click the link and after reading the HSE site information ask us any questions you may have.
