What You Need to Repair/Service Your Own Forklifts

A forklift is an important asset for your business, and in order to properly look after this investment, you should ensure that your forklift receives regular services and that any broken parts are replaced as soon as possible.
As stockists of service kits, parts, spares, and forklift attachments in South Africa, the experts at First Forklifts are here to guide you on what you need to service your own forklifts.

Knowledgeable and Experienced Technician

If your business has its own in-house technical team, then it is more than likely that you’d opt for an in-house technician to repair/service your forklifts instead of taking your forklift to a workshop. While this can save you both time and money, it is important that your technician has some knowledge and experience behind them. The good news is that there is a lot of educational material out there should you want to improve your forklift repair knowledge.

The Right Parts and Spares

Unfortunately, certain forklift parts do not last forever, especially parts like wheels, which need to be replaced every so often to ensure the correct and safe functioning of your forklifts. In order to carry out effective services/repairs, you’ll need to ensure that your team has the right parts to work with. While buying genuine parts is always great, there are many generic parts available that work just as well.
