Forklift Breakdowns Could be Prevented by Regular Maintenance

England – 11.10.2013 – FLT Maintenance Contracts Mean No More Delays

When a car breaks down it can be, at the very least, very disruptive for the owner, not least if they rely on the car to get them to and from work. However, when a piece of their working or office equipment breaks down then they can be prevented from being productive.

The same is true of forklift trucks, such as those sold and hired by For many businesses, these are as essential as their lights, heating, and physical stock, and there are few businesses that could imagine being able to carry out their business without their forklift truck.

A sudden breakdown of the truck will often come with little warning or prior signs for the user or business owner but can be extremely inconvenient often meaning that the business has to lose productivity and in turn money as they wait for the fault, whatever it may be, to be fixed.
