If you have a high volume warehouse, losing just one forklift in the course of a shift due to mechanical failure can result in considerable losses in productivity. Disabled trucks can also rack up less obvious costs. To illustrate, you may have an inactive or underutilized worker during downtime shifts, you may suffer loss of reputation as a result of delayed shipments, and you might incur overtime costs to make up for lost time once your fork truck is restored to duty.
In spite of routine service, even the most well cared for lift truck fleets are subject to occasional mechanical failures, it’s just the nature of the business.
A full day, or even more than four hours is too much time to be idle in situations where you need a forklift back in service immediately. With a site arrival interval of just over two hours, we have the speediest dispatch time of any vendor in many areas of the West. We have branches throughout the Western U.S. and can dispatch technicians at a moment’s notice. To get repair jobs done quickly during their first onsite visit, our teams of highly trained, certified specialists are outfitted with fully equipped service vans that have all the components and tools they need. Other service operations may take twenty-four hours or more to show up on-site, diagnose a mechanical failure and fix a lift truck. Raymond’s technicians can often accomplish the same thing inside of just a couple of hours of your service request.

Scheduled Forklift Service
Routine service of your fork trucks is crucial when you want to multiply your uptime and productivity. With our planned maintenance coverage, we examine and service your forklifts at predetermined intervals and help you avoid mechanical problems before they occur. You receive all of the essential inspections and maintenance required for your trucks from our team of highly trained specialists . All maintenance calls are organized around your timetable, so you can keep your fork trucks fully engaged when you need them and get them serviced in off-peak times.
Comprehensive Forklift Maintenance
Our total forklift service agreement includes all scheduled maintenance, parts and labor at one set monthly rate. You get the uptime advantages of our preemptive scheduled service program, but if you are hit with a truck breakdown, all labor and parts are included as well. The predetermined monthly expense makes budgeting simple and uniform, and it can be significantly less costly than using trained maintenance employees. Despite the fact that comprehensive terms are more costly than scheduled maintenance, they can make a lot of sense for heavily utilized fleets, particularly for multiple shift warehouses and high volume distribution centers.
