Forklift Repair – Heavy Equipment Repair & Service

 

Planned maintenance for forklifts, or PM service is of paramount importance in maintaining the reliability, safety and low cost of ownership for your lift truck fleet. W.D. Matthews is pleased to offer PM agreements to our customers that lock in low flat fee rates for PM Service and ensure that your forklifts get the service they need. Material handling equipment may become a safety hazard if maintenance is neglected, and repairs, or adjustments are not performed. All manufacturers recommend that their forklift equipment is maintained under a PM program that provides regular inspections, minor adjustments, lubrication, oil changes and replacement of filters. W.D. Matthews performs a comprehensive PM Service and adds value with our lift truck fleet maintenance reporting and associated record keeping. We track your expenditure by machine or by hours of operation and offer reporting to help you manage your fleet.
