Benefits of regularly servicing your machinery
Most businesses underestimate the importance of servicing and maintaining their machinery. “Why get it serviced if there is nothing wrong with it?”
Construction equipment is an investment for your business, downtime due to machinery can take a toll on the bottom line of your business.
All servicing should be done by skilled mechanics or technicians that are qualified to work on an extensive range of construction machinery from scissor lifts to earthmoving machinery.
Investing in regular servicing can provide many benefits:
Keeping your worksite safe and secure should be a high priority.
Servicing and maintenance are vital to ensuring the safety of yourself, the operators, and everyone at your worksite. A large portion of the machinery used on the worksite is generally used to conduct or assist with heavy lifting, elevated lifting, or intricate moving in dangerous or hard-to-reach spaces. The instances of workplace accidents or injury are increased when the machinery stops working in the way it was intended, especially in the middle of a job.
Regularly servicing all machinery considerably reduces the safety risks within your workplace.
Consistent maintenance saves you money & time
We have all know that small problems that are ignored will turn into bigger problems. Machinery is no different! Our experience shows that there is ALWAYS more cost and more damage to the machine when regular planned maintenance work is not conducted.
These headaches to your business can be avoided easily by scheduling planned maintenance work to be done regularly. You will then see the small issues fixed before they become big, expensive irreparable problems and saving you a lot of money & time in the long run.
Increased productivity & no machine breakdowns
Sticking to a regular maintenance plan increases the reliability of your machinery, no expensive machine breakdowns to worry about. A machine breakdown can cost a business a large amount of money not only for repairs, but man-hours wasted and potential profits.
Preventative equipment maintenance is the key to increasing productivity.
Maintain or boost your resale value
The construction equipment market size in Australia continues to grow and the infrastructure programs in Australia led primarily by the government will increase the opportunity for the construction equipment market. More and more construction equipment such as earthmoving, road construction & material handling will be used for these projects.
