When your business depends on a fleet of forklifts, keeping your equipment in top condition is a high priority. Doing so remains a challenge for many businesses, however, due to heavy workloads, limited technician training, and the expense of in-house techs. To help warehouses, distribution centers, and other facilities throughout Northern New Jersey and nearby areas of New York ensure equipment is always ready for use, Barclay Brand Ferdon offers comprehensive planned forklift maintenance and inspection services that optimize performance, cut costs, improve safety, and reduce downtime.
The Benefits of Planned Forklift Inspection and Maintenance Services
Next to your team, forklifts are the most valuable asset in most material handling facilities. Without regular maintenance, these essential machines may become unreliable and even dangerous for operators and nearby workers alike. Our planned forklift maintenance programs and thorough inspections provide all of the following benefits for your fleet:
Predictable Maintenance Costs
Without a service schedule and consistent maintenance, the cost of keeping forklifts running becomes expensive and unpredictable. Our services eliminate guesswork by scheduling inspections and forklift maintenance throughout the year with a focus on your operational needs and budget.
While breakdowns can’t always be prevented, consistent forklift maintenance helps identify worn parts, aging components, and damage early so that it may be repaired before worsening. By avoiding major repairs, you’ll save money and hassle.
When forklifts can’t be used, productivity slows to a halt. This downtime delays order picking, shipping, and other important tasks on which the success of your business depends. Even worse, missed deadlines diminish customer trust and damage your reputation. With planned forklift maintenance, you can stay on schedule and ahead of the competition.
Longer Equipment Lifespan
Quality forklifts are built to last, but proper maintenance is required to maximize useful life. Our technicians provide the fluid and filter changes, battery checks, and other services needed to prevent damage and maintain the function of your equipment for years to come.
High-Tech Equipment and Experienced Technicians
Our experienced technicians are familiar with all the equipment sold by Barclay Brand Ferdon, as well as the latest advancements in lift truck technology.

With parts for all major lift truck brands and no need to wait for shipping, our team can have you up and running in no time.
Additionally, our facility is equipped with the most advanced forklift service technology available.
