Battery Service & Scheduled Maintenance
Forklift Battery Maintenance services: While industrial batteries are less expensive than forklifts they power, they can cause downtime and result in expensive lift truck repairs. Our full range of maintenance programs allow us to customize our offering to your specific application and location. We operate in the Philadelphia area as well as New Jersey and Delaware. Without proper forklift battery care maintenance, your lift truck batteries could hinder truck performance and component life. Battery life and energy cost are also factors that may be impacted by lack of maintenance.

Return On Investment
Industrial batteries need regular maintenance. If they are not maintained they may develop:
• Short run time
• Low voltage / high amp / heat
• Dead cells
• Unbalanced electrolyte
• Corrosion = shorts
This minimal service investment can often be justified by eliminating just ONE service call for an electric truck component failure.
