When you invest in equipment for your business, you naturally want to receive value for money. Negotiating purchases and procuring the right tools for the job are part of running your business effectively, as is protecting your assets once they are yours.
Regular servicing and maintenance is the easiest way to ensure that you get the most from your equipment. Keeping your machinery, trucks and handling equipment working to their full capacity ensures that productivity doesn’t suffer from downtime for repairs, while also complying with health and safety regulations.
A regular program of maintenance is a legal requirement under Health and Safety regulations, as is ensuring staff safety during the maintenance process. Lifting equipment, in particular, requires servicing every six months for lifts that include people, or every twelve months for any other kind of lifting. It also requires checking after installation and before first use. We recommend consulting the Health and Safety Commission regulations to confirm that you are following an appropriate program of service, and that your employees are trained to manage all equipment. Engaging a professional service team to run regular check and repairs ensures you remain compliant and gives you peace of mind that your assets, and your business, are protected.

We also offer general repairs, bespoke repairs and return-to-base repairs, meaning your equipment is kept running, and so is your business.
