If you’re looking for a new forklift truck, there are many things you should consider. While the forklift itself has to meet your requirements, your decision shouldn’t be solely influenced by price and product features.

We’re confident our product range delivers exactly what our customers expect and more, but there’s much more we can offer our customers when they buy a forklift truck from us.

1) Great parts availability

The manufacturers after sales support package should be an integral part of your purchase decision. While the product may be great, you could end up with expensive surprises if the after sales support is lacking.

That’s why at Cat® Lift Trucks, we put so much emphasis on our parts offering. With 97% of forklift parts readily available (measured full line, first pick) from our Belgium based warehouse, we offer the highest warehouse equipment and forklift truck parts availability in the industry. Not only that, but we also have online access to extensive stock within our other centralised warehouse equipment and forklift parts distribution centres, in areas including the USA, Singapore and Japan.

This unique and powerful infrastructure enables our dealers to supply the right equipment and forklift parts, in the right place, at the right time.

2) Excellent service programmes

While our lift trucks are renowned for their durability, robustness and non-stop performance, our unrivalled range of warranties are there to give you complete peace of mind.

At Cat Lift Trucks, we offer the most comprehensive range of product support and customer service programmes in the lift truck industry. These include our Planned Maintenance (PM) and Total Maintenance & Repair (TM&R) programmes.

Working with your Cat® lift trucks dealer to achieve a tailored service agreement, you’ll receive a high-quality service carried out, administered and monitored by your dealer, leaving you to focus on your business without worrying about the maintenance of your forklift truck.

3) A worldwide dealer and factory network

Our network of factories across the world makes our offering wider and enables us to tailor products to meet the demands of each region. Using our global resources, international contacts and combined knowledge we are able to offer customers innovative products and services that are designed to solve specific local challenges.

Not only this, but with our worldwide dealer network, you’re also able to liaise with a Cat lift trucks dealer that is operating in your region and who therefore better understands your needs and challenges.

4) Dedicated training programmes

Forklift training is not only an Occupational Safety and Health Act requirement, but it is essential in keeping your staff safe. Not only that, but knowing how to correctly use your forklift trucks will ensure you’re operating efficiently.

We know the importance of training, so that’s why we’ve developed a series of dedicated training programmes to help you understand how to get the most out of your forklift. Our training courses include ‘lift truck fundamentals’, ‘stability, balance and capacity’, ‘pre-operational inspection’, ‘general rules of the road’, ‘load handling techniques’, ‘proper refuelling practices’ and ‘battery maintenance’. Your Cat lift trucks dealer will be able to advice booking onto the courses you’re interested in.
