With over 30 years of experience, our workshop manager Dave Savill will carry out an extensive and complete inspection, including a 135 point check, and then, through consultation and agreement with the customer, will complete the necessary work to meet all relevant regulations.
On completion of the work the forklift is given a full re-spray in one of our two fully equipped spray booths. It is then subjected to a ‘Thorough Examination’ by one of our CFTS accredited inspectors and a certificate of Thorough Examination is issued. The forklift then has a PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection), and after satisfactory completion a warranty certificate is issued.
On delivery most of our customers comment on the quality of our work and often state that the trucks look brand new.
Our comprehensive refurbishment programme is unique in that it is completely transparent. We provide a report detailing all of the work carried out and all of the parts that have been fitted meaning our customers know exactly what they are getting for their money!
The depot at South Woodham Ferrers has a fully equipped 15 bay workshop; our own welding bays; lathes, metal saws and presses in the machine shop, plus a hydraulic hose centre complete with heavy duty swaging machinery.
Our facilities are geared up to providing a full refurbishment on a truck selected from our stock or for customers requiring their current forklift be rebuilt. Fork Truck Direct offers a wide range of diesel, gas or electric forklifts with capacities from 1 tonnes to 16 tonnes.
