Advantages of forklift servicing and routine maintenance

Your forklift truck is just like any other vehicle – you get your car MOT serviced once a year to make sure it lasts so the same should apply to your forklifts. When they are looked after and serviced regularly, your forklift’s performance is enhanced and it will last a lot longer as well as being less likely to breakdown and need our emergency breakdown service.

  • Planning and control of outgoings
  • No shock bills
  • Improved cash flow
  • Optimum use of your forklift truck
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Higher resale value for the forklift
