Make Forklift Operation 10% Easier in 2024 – Use Guaranteed Maintenance

Where can anyone find a 10% improvement in today’s ease of operations? It’s possible. But it’s not by ignoring’s by modernizing it.

We at Cromer wanted to start the year by re-introducing a service many of our customers like, but some didn’t know about. It’s called “Guaranteed Maintenance.”

Guaranteed Maintenance - Saving You Time and Money on Forklift Service

Guaranteed Maintenance is Cromer’s full-service maintenance program. It covers all service & repair for a customer’s material handling equipment, for the equipment’s economic life.

The main advantage to this kind of program? Complete maintenance, for as many forklifts as you need - on one simple payment.

What Guaranteed Maintenance Covers

  • Planned Maintenance based on equipment use, for 1 forklift or 100. This always includes:
    • Oil & lube
    • System checks
    • Safety inspection
    • Operational inspection
    • Recycling & waste fees covered

  • Routine service calls, small to large

  • Emergency service (at your location, average response time of 1.5 hours)

  • Overhauls to major components (due to normal wear-and-tear) – engine, transmission, drive axle, steer axle, uprights, etc.

How Does Guaranteed Maintenance Make Things 10% Better?

  • It’s one line item. A flat, predictable cost per month, without having to manage multiple PO’s & invoices.

  • Cromer handles all service. We’ll contact you when it’s time to visit your facility for forklift service.
  • No service deductible to worry about.

  • Replacement equipment if/when needed (e.g., if it’s not practical or possible to quickly repair a disabled unit)

  • Bonus – Cromer gives all Guaranteed Maintenance customers 10% off their Operator Training to satisfy OSHA requirements.

Simplify Your Service Plan for 2024, and Save!

What’s the cost for Guaranteed Maintenance? For 1,000 hours/year on a 5-year contract with Cromer, your rate could be as low as $180/month!

This is current as of today—and rates do not change during the term of the agreement.

Customers who have Guaranteed Maintenance Agreements with us like its simplicity. It's one PO a month for all their forklift work, instead of POs for every forklift, every time it needs service. That’s all.

If a 10% operations improvement sounds like something you need for 2024, call your local Cromer.

Until next month!
