PM Contracts for Forklift/Industrial Batteries, Chargers and Battery Changing Systems

Don’t be lulled into thinking that the forklift PMs you may already have are protecting you from unnecessary expenses incurred due to operator, battery or charger problems. Forklift PMs typically cover only the most basic items.

However, SBS has developed a comprehensive preventative maintenance program that draws from over 90 years of service expertise.

How Often Should PM Be Performed?

Our customer service representative will evaluate your application and then recommend a program that could be weekly, monthly, quarterly, semiannually or yearly, depending on your needs and the application.

What Happens During Preventative Maintenance?

Comprehensive tests are performed on batteries, chargers and battery changing equipment as well as any optional accessories such as single point filling systems. A safety and OSHA compliance audit is performed as well. Our technicians are trained to look for operational or people problems. Unless they are identified and acted upon, the damage and the costs associated with the problem never end.

Our one-of-a-kind reporting system not only identifies any problem area, but describes in a clear, brief format:

  • What the problem is
  • What will happen if it continues
  • How to solve the problem

Why SBS?
