Easilift Loading Systems understands why it is necessary to keep your loading bays operational at all times; put simply KEEP OPERATIONAL – STAY OPERATIONAL!

Rob Fay, Managing Director at Easilift Loading Systems.

Preventative maintenance is absolutely central within our customer support approach here at Easilift Loading Systems – not least because it aids us in the fulfilment of our three key customer service objectives:

1. Minimise operational downtime

2. Reduce maintenance costs

3. Ensure health and safety compliance

But also because this kind of forward-thinking, proactive approach to loading bay maintenance brings you a wealth of benefits, namely the minimisation of the need for expensive repairs or replacement parts.

How can Easilift Loading Systems help you achieve this?

When you are looking to extend the longevity of your loading bay equipment, both preventative and reactive maintenance regimes are vital. Here’s how we pay close attention to both aspects here at Easilift Loading Systems.

We want to make sure you get the right level of preventative maintenance cover for your business. Our Change Parts In Time (CPIT) programme is purposely geared towards this. The programme replaces components with known life expectancies during service rather than waiting for them to fail, which in turn means your business will remain more operational, efficient and safe.

If you want to reduce the likelihood of premature component or product failure whilst avoiding significant financial outlay for expensive reactive repairs or replacement parts then you need an Easilift Loading Systems Service Agreement.

But don’t just take our word for it….

With the average breakdown call out cost nearing £300 a time, and the operating cost of a 44 tonne lorry at approximately 1£90 per hour (more if it is refrigerated), it doesn’t take a genius to work out how ‘prevention is better than cure’!

Of course not all call outs are for preventable breakdown in parts, many are due to damage or operator error for example.

However, for one multisite national supermarket chain now with a bi-annual Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) agreement with us, we have managed to significantly reduce their call out charges and in turn their operating costs.

The graph shows that prior to the Planned Preventative Maintenance visits being introduced call outs were regularly going above 20 per month for a similar time period. However, after each service, where checks, repairs, and replacements were carried out under the maintenance agreement the call outs significantly reduced.

This is why we offer a 5 year, no quibble, extended warranty on all our new equipment. In the unlikely event of component failure or malfunction, our engineers will attend site and replace the problem item at NO CHARGE to you for parts or labour.
