While it is true that electric forklift trucks require less maintenance than their fuel-powered counterparts, that is not to say that they never need it. Routine maintenance is essential for keeping costs down, ensuring continued operation, and fostering a safe and productive facility. This is especially the case in the often-challenging operating climates found in our own country where equipment really has its metal tested. So, if you have been on the fence about making use of forklift repair and maintenance services in South Africa, here are a few key reasons why you should do it sooner rather than later.

AVOID UNWANTED DOWNTIME

Regular maintenance is essential for equipment reliability, and reliable equipment is a key component to facility efficiency. Unscheduled downtime can be remarkably costly and interruptive, which is something that can be devastating to your operations.

With the right maintenance schedule in place, any downtime suffered can not only be planned for, but significantly reduced to ensure continued operations.

ENSURE FACILITY SAFETY

Wherever heavy equipment is being used, there is a concern for operational, facility, and personnel safety, which cannot be ensured when maintenance has been ignored. Sudden failures can be avoided, but can be dangerous or even deadly when they occur. So ensure they don’t by keeping maintenance of forklift trucks at the forefront of your operational needs.

REDUCE THE COST OF REPAIRS

Repairs and replacements are often unavoidable, but their need can be significantly reduced with the right maintenance. This will see to it that the overall condition of equipment is properly maintained, and that they don’t fail as a result of oversights or undue pressure being put on their components.

This will, in turn, reduce the need and cost for unplanned repairs and replacements, significantly.
