One of the consistent pain points for those who use forklifts is managing the maintenance of their fleet. Any amount of downtime is a concern, but long stretches of downtime on top of administrative headaches adds quite a bit of frustration.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. There are options available that create a seamless maintenance process that doesn’t involve multiple invoices and multiple contacts with service technicians. Imagine receiving one single invoice each month for service repairs for your entire fleet. That’s the beauty of Abel Womack’s Comprehensive Fixed Price Maintenance program, or CFPM. Once enrolled, all you need to do is contact our service department and they’ll handle the rest.
Here are the details:
It’s Comprehensive — CFPM includes all scheduled maintenance and all repairs that are equipment-related, including parts, labor and travel.
It Has a Fixed Price — Receive up to five years of coverage with a fixed, monthly maintenance cost allowing for accurately projected budgets.
High-Quality Technicians — This program assures that service will be performed correctly, systematically, and on a timely basis by certified trained technicians.
CFPM Increases Residual Value
If you plan on leasing equipment, CFPM increases the residual value of your fleet. Instead of multiple invoices and a maintenance manager needing time to get a quote, cut a purchase order, and match up the order to the bill, folding your lease and CFPM together cuts down on the administrative duties. Plus, if you ever want to resell or trade in your fleet, both parties will know it’s been well-maintained and kept in excellent condition.
Experts at Your Disposal
Abel Womack has the industry expertise and skilled technicians required to ensure your fleet is well taken care of. We classify our repairs in a way that allows fleet specialists to gain insight into the equipment, making repair decisions proactive, rather than reactive. In addition, our fleet specialists are responsible for the following:
- Reviewing all repairs performed on CFPM equipment
- Reporting on the equipment and determining any issues that should be raised with Technical Specialists
- Advising the customer if the fleet usage needs to be balanced
What CFPM Doesn’t Cover
This plan covers a lot, but there are a few exclusions. Tires and wheels aren’t covered, nor is driver negligence or abuse, e.g., driving off a dock or snapping a fork. Pretty much everything else is covered.
