A preventative maintenance programme from Barloworld will help ensure your lift trucks and associated equipment get the right level of servicing for your application. Based around typical 500 hour service intervals our service visits are agreed in advance and positioned outside the fleet's operational window to avoid disruption. Oil sampling and trend analysis can help us detect any developing problems, identifying issues such as dust and water contamination, component wear and oil degradation helps us deal with engine problems before they lead to failure.

Our Truckserve and Truckserve Plus service agreements provide a complete lift truck care package providing superb value for money and peace of mind. Truckserve agreements can cater for one truck or a whole fleet, a single brand or multiple brands of equipment. Truckserve Plus is designed for more intensive or materials handling critical operations. Find out more.
