Like anything else in life, whether it’s your car, your home or even your body, planning and conducting preventive maintenance creates long-term benefits that are well worth the investment. Why would your forklift and other materials handling equipment be any different?
There are many benefits of properly maintaining your forklift fleet and other equipment. However, we have recognized five major benefits that our customers have enjoyed. Planned Maintenance has been proven to:
Lower Your Forklift Maintenance Costs
Proactive and preventive maintenance has proven to lower costs by catching small service issues before they blossom into giant repair headaches. Worn or damaged parts serviced and replaced early allow the forklift to function with fewer service requirments.
Improve Useful Equipment Life
Equipment that is serviced regularly does not have to be “turned over” as frequently. This lowers your equipment costs over time.
Equipment that is well maintained does not break down. This improves productivity as well as your bottom line performance. Your equipment will also perform more efficiently, improving your bottom line.
Increase Residual Values
When you trade-in your forklifts, or sell it to purchase new equipment, well maintained equipment has proven to have higher values than equipment serviced on an “as needed” basis.
Enhance Facility Safety
Equipment failures can have catastrophic consequences. Properly maintaining your forklifts will improve operator safety, as well as those that work around your equipment.
