Telehandlers are also called reach forklifts. They are common in construction and agriculture for lifting and transporting heavy things. The telehandler is an aerial lift vehicle which looks like a traditional forklift but performs like a crane. The telehandler has advantages over the crane when it comes to versatility. The telehandler has a single telescopic boom that extends forward and upward from the truck.
In oder to lessen downtime that could be caused by out-of-service equipment, there are many forklift services which offer repair and maintenance on weekends or during off hours. Repair centers normally offer forklift rentals until equipment could be repaired. Maintenance is vital for electrically powered vehicles which occasionally require repair to fuel cells or batteries.
Maintenance contracts include the provision of regular services like monitoring, inspections, lubrication, routine adjustments and oil change. Maintenance contracts vary depending on the company's specific requirements. A regular contract could consist of everything from the cost of spare parts to preventive maintenance. A complete service contract would include a monthly fee for a particular period of time. Damages that are caused by accidents are generally not included in maintenance contracts.
