Forklift Servicing & Maintenance

To keep your forklifts performing as they should, our thorough service from an expert engineer is all you’ll need. 

Our short, medium and long contracts keep your fleet reliable, your costs down and your operators in control (just as it should be). And what’s more, we can also offer a fixed cost for all your maintenance requirements, including spares and labour. 


Forklift Repairs & LOLER Examinations

Standards are critical when it comes to any lifting equipment. That’s why we offer comprehensive examinations through our LOLER (link) qualified engineers. 

Components are rigorously examined with our specialist test equipment. All results and inspections are recorded on the detailed TETC (Thorough Examination Test Certificate). And we can even repair any remedial works discovered.
