THE BENEFITS OF SERVICE AGREEMENTS

SAFETY

When buying your machinery from an official dealership, a warranty is often included with your purchase. Warranties can be incredibly beneficial as it means that if your machinery suffers any issues within a set period of time, it will be remedied through the manufacturer themselves.

The addition of non-genuine parts to your vehicle will likely invalidate your warranty and could lead to costly repairs if issues are found.

If you require a forklift truck part or any further information or advice, contact us today using the form provided above, call us on 01569 768011 or email us at parts@groundwater.uk.com

Alternatively, our Parts Department is open 6 days a week, why not pop in?

THorough examination

Thorough Examination is a systematic and detailed examination of a piece of lifting equipment, used to detect any defects that are, or might become dangerous.

Thorough Examination is a systematic and detailed examination of a piece of lifting equipment, used to detect any defects that are, or might become dangerous.

Although Thorough Examination has been a legal requirement since 1998, not everyone is fully aware of the obligations it places on truck owners and operators.

FOR EXAMPLE:

In Long Term Hire, it ss the operating company not the company supplying the truck that is responsible for maintaining the truck’s Thorough Examination.

In Short Term Hire, both the operating company and the hire company have a responsibility for ensuring that the truck has a current Thorough Examination Report.

In Second-Hand Purchase, the buyer is responsible for checking that the truck has a current Thorough Examination Report before using it. If defects are found following the examination, these must be rectified by repairing or replacing the equipment before a complete Thorough Examination Report is signed off.
