Is preventive forklift maintenance worth it? Here are 5 reasons to convince you!
When it comes to keeping trucks and forklifts in good shape, it’s best to think of it like you’re maintaining your own body. Yes, they’re machines, but just like how it is with people, good health reaps more benefits in the long run.
Keep reading for 5 reasons why you should invest in preventive forklift maintenance:
1. First, the less your machine breaks, the longer it will last. If there is little to no wear and tear, a healthy vehicle’s lifespan can last much longer than one that frequently breaks. (Ideally, a well-maintained forklift can last up to 10 years and more!)
2. Remember, prevention is always better than a cure. Sometimes, repairing a broken vehicle can shoot costs up, especially when purchasing replacements for expensive parts. This means maintaining your vehicle from the beginning ends up being more cost-effective.
