When you purchase a planned maintenance plan, you’ll pay a monthly fee to have your forklift serviced at every planned maintenance interval. Replacement parts and additional fixes are not included. … The first cost reduction you’ll see with a maintenance plan will be in downtime.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have even one thing about your job made easy? One area where …
- You rarely (if ever) encounter unexpected downtime due to a repair emergency.
- You have the luxury of being able to plan “workarounds” ahead of time because you know well in advance what’s happening and when.
- You have peace of mind that, should you need a last-minute repair, a dedicated partner will have your back and keep your business moving.
Investing in a maintenance plan can make this dream-like scenario a reality for you in your operation’s equipment maintenance and repairs.
Too often, forklift manufacturers are unable or unwilling to provide the type of care and maintenance that can make fleet management easy. With Toyota, we’re dedicated to being your full-life material handling partner – long after the sale of a new forklift. Here’s what you need to know if you’re considering a maintenance plan, like Toyota 360 Support Plus.
What is Planned Maintenance — and How Can It Help You?
A maintenance plan is exactly what it sounds like: a way for you to plan any necessary, routine maintenance when it’s convenient to you and your business.
This affords you the opportunity to run the show on your own timetable — orchestrating maintenance on a tailor-made schedule so you can optimize workload and keep things moving. As an added bonus, having your forklifts regularly serviced also extends the longevity of your equipment and makes the need for unexpected emergency repairs far less likely.
Best of all? Agreeing to a maintenance plan up front can often SAVE you money on the cost of maintenance and repairs you would need to have done anyway — not to mention the cost of downtime you might encounter with a more “reactive” approach to maintenance.
