WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO SERVICE YOUR FORKLIFT REGULARLY

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO SERVICE YOUR FORKLIFT REGULARLY
06/06/2019

Whether it’s in your warehouse or on a construction site, using one or multiple forklifts is likely to be an integral part of your day to day business operations. So ensuring they’re fully serviced is essential.

Over time after constant use, just like anything, parts of a forklift are prone to wear and tear. Regular servicing and maintenance help ensure your forklift can operate at maximum performance. And here we’ve highlighted some of the reasons it’s important to ensure your forklift is regularly serviced and maintained:

Avoid Accidents

Each year, there are an abundance of cases reporting forklift accidents as a result of faulty forklifts, usually by problems that can be easily avoided.

With regular servicing, you’re likely to be able to spot, fix and prevent mechanical faults and so accidents as a result of faulty forklifts are more likely to be avoided.

Keep Your Business Productive

As mentioned earlier, one or multiple forklifts are essential to the day to day workings of many businesses. If you’re one of these businesses, you need to make sure you can rely on them to operate at maximum efficiency day in day out. Forklifts that regularly breakdown can cause a slowdown in productivity, which will ultimately cost your business money.

A regular service to your fleet of forklifts ensures you can count on them to work efficiently around the clock.

You Can Budget Better

Imagine the situation, you own multiple forklifts and all of a sudden most or all of them encounter major mechanical faults. This is going to be a serious unexpected cost for your business and one you might not be able to afford at a moment’s notice.

If you have a regular service of your forklift booked in, you’re able to have greater visibility of the costs of repairs or fixes that can keep it working. Meaning no huge unexpected costs and better budgeting.

Increased Longevity

With a regular forklift service you’re likely to catch any potential issues quickly and the mechanic will be able to fix them before they cause any major, destructive problems. Meaning you’re forklift is likely to stay in tip top shape for a longer period of time.

Ensuring your forklift is regularly serviced is an integral part of its productivity and longevity. If you’re interested in hearing more about our servicing and repair services, get in touch.
