Five Major Benefits of Planned Preventive Maintenance
January 12th, 2015 - Plan Your Equipment Costs Instead of Letting the Costs Plan You
Like anything else in life, whether it’s your car, your home or even your body, planning and conducting preventive maintenance creates long-term benefits that are well worth the investment. Why would your forklift and other materials handling equipment be any different?
There are many benefits of properly maintaining your forklift fleet and other equipment. However, we have recognized five major benefits that our customers have enjoyed. Planned Maintenance has been proven to:
Lower Your Maintenance Costs
Proactive and preventive maintenance has proven to lower costs by catching small service issues before they blossom into giant repair headaches.
Improve Useful Equipment Life
Equipment that is serviced regularly does not have to be “turned over” as frequently. This lowers your equipment costs over time.
Equipment that is well maintained does not break down. This improves productivity as well as your
bottom line performance.
Increase Residual Values
When you trade-in your equipment, or sell it to purchase new equipment, well maintained equipment
has proven to have higher values than equipment serviced on an “as needed” basis.
Enhance Facility Safety
Equipment failures can have catastrophic consequences. Properly maintaining your equipment will improve operator safety, as well as those that work around your equipment.
