Support and Maintenance
Breakdowns, Repairs and Refurbishment
Even with regular servicing, over time your materials handling equipment can start to show its battle scars. At PLP Lift Trucks Ltd, we offer cover for breakdowns, scheduled repairs and refurbishments of all makes and models of materials handling equipment.
From receiving a call to inform us that your forklift has broken down, we always aim to be on site within 4 hours.
When it comes to repairs and refurbishments, we can carry out anything from a detailed mechanical inspection and a new coat of paint right up to a complete strip down and rebuild, we can have your forklift or other equipment looking as good as it performs. To find out more or to discuss your particular refurbishment requirements give us a call on 01909 564257 or click here to email us using our contact form.
From phoning through a breakdown to our service department, we aim to have an engineer on site within 4 hours. Contact us today to discuss fixed hourly rates.

Thorough Examinations (LOLER 98 and PUWER 98)
By law, lifting equipment must be Thoroughly Examined at appropriate intervals (at least annually) to make sure it is safe to use – this includes lifting gear on forklift trucks. The Thorough Examination should always be carried out by a ‘competent’ person. At PLP Lift Trucks Ltd, all of our engineers are competent and we carry out Thorough Examinations on a daily basis for our customers.
You are responsible! Whether you own your forklift or simply hire it, the law demands you hold a current Report of Thorough Examination. You are responsible. You face the consequences of failing to comply, including the risk of prosecution, hefty fines and invalidated insurance cover.
A Thorough Examination is no place to cut corners. Which is why the two main bodies in the forklift truck industry – working with the HSE – have developed the definitive national scheme, administered via CFTS. With a CFTS Thorough Examination, you receive clear and comprehensive documentation, underpinned by uniformly high quality standards that comply fully with both LOLER 98 and PUWER 98 legislations.
