Battery Maintenance ProgramToyota_battery_Maintenance

Forklift battery repairs happen, but it is our goal to keep that to a minimum. Your investment in electric lift trucks and industrial batteries needs to be protected in order to maximize the benefits that they have to offer. Don’t allow your forklift batteries or forklift battery chargers to drag down the rewards that properly maintained equipment can help you realize.

“Battery maintenance is often neglected. Don’t discount the benefits available by ignoring your investment.”

Rely on TLM for your complete material handling needs. We put action behind our words when we say we are a full service lift truck dealership.

Our commitment of resources and personnel to forklift battery and charger maintenance sets us apart from other lift truck dealerships. It’s our commitment that gives you total control through a single vendor when dealing with your unique material handling needs.
