Cat® lift truck owners can now benefit from a fully-tailored proactive servicing and maintenance programme, thanks to a new fixed-price aftermarket support package from Impact, the UK’s sole distributor of Cat lift trucks.

The package – inclusive of all consumables, genuine OEM parts, labour and oils – is available to all Cat® Lift Trucks customers who own their assets outright, allowing businesses to spread the cost of routine servicing and maintenance over 12 fixed-price monthly payments.

Prior to the start of the programme, Impact conducts a free, no obligation, site and application survey to determine the servicing and maintenance requirements for each individual operation, ensuring that every package is fully-tailored.

Paul Phillips, Head of Aftersales at Impact, says: “Regularly serviced forklifts perform better, last longer and ultimately offer a better return on investment. A proactive approach to forklift maintenance helps to spot any potential issues before they result in a breakdown, plus any work can be scheduled outside of peak operating times, minimising disruption to the business.

“Having a service plan in place is also beneficial for financial budgeting. It allows fleet managers to know in advance exactly how much their trucks are going to cost them month on month.”

All work is carried out to exacting manufacturer standards by local factory-trained field service engineers, who are best placed to help a Cat lift truck reach its full life potential and provide detailed service inspection reports with each visit.
