Reducing the cost of damage to fork lift trucks
There are several common reasons for forklift truck damage, no matter what the workplace may be. Instances of damage can be extremely expensive. Expenses normally relate to expenses of repair and staff downtime. Luckily, most types of forklift truck damage are preventable. By following these simple tips, fleet operators could ensure that downtime and repair expenses are minimized or avoided.

Check that the machine is appropriate for the job and the environment. Carry out safety checks on truck components and vital systems. Be certain that drivers of forklifts are properly trained and that supervision is provided. Examine the layout of the warehouse/operating area to ensure it facilitates movement. Develop a maintenance/repair plan that can guide actions when something goes wrong.

The company could even give suggestion about the design of the warehouse.
