Unlike classic cars, you don’t see a lot of people collecting forklifts as a hobby. If you buy a forklift, it’s because you have a job that requires lifting, stacking, or transporting heavy material. But just like a car, if you don’t properly maintain your forklift, it will not run efficiently or at all. Fortunately, forklift maintenance doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. When you purchase your forklift, you have the option of adding a maintenance plan. Typically, maintenance plans are offered as either full maintenance or planned maintenance. Both plans vary, but in most cases, full maintenance covers the cost of replacement parts and labor, while planned maintenance covers labor only. When you opt for a forklift maintenance plan, you gain additional benefits. Most obvious, your forklift will be properly maintained on a fixed maintenance schedule, providing you the flexibility to plan ahead and adjust workload and schedules. And because your forklift is on a maintenance schedule, any major issues are much more likely to be discovered early and before they turn into more expensive repairs.

Forklift maintenance programs typically provide a high return on investment. And because the fee is a fixed monthly expense, you’re able to spend less time crunching numbers and more time focusing on your operations. Often, maintenance plans are financed right along with the forklift. When your forklift is properly maintained, your uptime increases, and you won’t be stuck spending time waiting on an available technician. Proper maintenance can also extend the life of your forklift, saving you time and money down the road.
