How Planned Maintenance Saves You Money
On average, the cost to repair a  forklift is four times higher than the cost to properly maintain the equipment in the first place. Just like a car, you need to have a certified technician check your lift every 150 hours at least.

By maintaining your asset, you can prevent expensive, unexpected repairs and avoid downtime. Equipment in good working order is also safer for employees, and a well-maintained lift truck commands a higher resale value. Learn more about planned maintenance (PM) from TMH:

Why Get Planned Maintenance for Your Forklift?

Protect Your Investment
Regular maintenance extends the life of your equipment, which in turn keeps your costs down. Whether you have an electric lift or a propane lift, you need to take care of it. For electric lifts, the main issues is watering the battery properly and with propane lifts is lack of checking fluids. That is where planned maintenance is valuable because we WILL monitor those issues for you.

Don’t Pay for Service Twice
We’ve had several customers who chose not to sign up for planned maintenance and paid the price.  Instead, they had independent service companies work on their equipment, but 8 times out of 10 they end up calling TMH to come out and fix their forklift.

One Less Thing to Worry About
With planned maintenance, you don’t have to worry about breakdowns or remembering to get service done. TMH will call with reminders to schedule service, so you can schedule maintenance when it’s convenient for you.  Our factory-trained technicians have all the resources, tools and parts to maintain your asset.
