Responsible and Sensible Forklift Parts Support
Aftermarket parts are often defined as any part not sourced from the original equipment manufacturer or OEM. Aftermarket part programs are everywhere, offered by almost all OEM dealerships and through those dealerships by every independent company involved in equipment repair. Generally aftermarket parts are attractive because they are often lower in cost for a variety of reasons than the OEM part.
Because most fleets are a mix of brands and equipment types all repair organizations including OEM dealerships are prompted to develop or associate with aftermarket sources. The standard thinking is that in order to offer complete and comprehensive service to those fleets an aftermarket part program is critical.
The application of an aftermarket program however requires a balance of knowledge and discipline. It is not enough to simply opt for the lower price of an aftermarket part, a dealership must weigh the pros and cons of every part decision. Toyota Lift of Minnesota for that reason has developed an aftermarket program that is a balance of opportunity and common sense.
Through Toyota’s Starlift part program and with an understanding of when an aftermarket part is right, we approach replacement parts and repairs for your fleet with a unique sense of common sense and responsibility, using a true blend of aftermarket and OEM parts through our “Fleet” program. If a part must be purchased locally, the customer is assured that a responsible sale or repair is done with a fair and reasonable approach to cost and pricing for that part. Not all parts are created equal, and knowing when to opt for quality over price insures every repair or sale is done responsibly. Remember the phrase “penny wise and pound foolish”?
