Materials Handling Equipment Maintenance

Forklift Breakdowns, Repairs and Refurbishment

Even with regular servicing, over time your materials handling equipment can start to show its age. At Epic Materials Handling, we offer rapid breakdown repairs as well as scheduled reapirs of all makes and models of materials handling equipment.

From receiving a call to inform us that your forklift has broken down, we always aim to be on site within 4 hours. 

When it comes to repairs and refurbishments, we can carry out anything from a detailed mechanical inspection and a new coat of paint right up to a complete strip down and rebuild. To find out more, or to discuss your particular refurbishment requirements, give us a call on 01744 302 800 or click here to email us using our contact form.

From phoning through a breakdown to our service department, we aim to have an engineer on site within 4 hours. Contact us today to discuss fixed hourly rates.

We can provide you with a quotation to carry out any work that is required on your forklift.

We offer different levels of refurbishment, from making the truck look nicer in terms of paintwork to a complete strip down and replacement of parts.

Thorough Examinations (LOLER 98 and PUWER 98)

By law, lifting equipment must be Thoroughly Examined at appropriate intervals (at least annually) to make sure it is safe to use – this includes lifting gear on forklift trucks. The Thorough Examination should always be carried out by a ‘competent’ person such as an Epic Materials Handling qualified service engineer.

Whether you own your forklift or simply hire it, the law demands you hold a current Report of Thorough Examination. You are responsible. You face the consequences of failing to comply, including the risk of prosecution, hefty fines and invalidated insurance cover.

Protect yourself and your business. Call us today on 01744 302 800 or click here to email us.
