Service

We can provide total care package for the life of your truck to ensure it remains in its most effective condition. Whatever your budget, we can offer a full range of options from daily checks, regular servicing (according to the type of application) to full maintenance contracts.

 

Repair

Due to technological and manufacturing advances, forklifts and other types of materials handling equipment are becoming more robust and reliable if well maintained. However, if your equipment does encounter a problem, our highly trained, certified mobile engineers are available 24/7 to ensure minimal disruption to your business.

 

Forklift Tyres

At Barek, we stock an extensive range of industrial forklift tyres that are compatible with the vast majority of forklift trucks and material handling equipment. To enable us to meet each and every demand of our clients and customers, we ensure we allow for every eventuality, therefore we offer the tyres in a range of budgets and specifications.

Premium Tyres

As with any automotive vehicle, what you put into it, you get out of it, whether that be with the fuel you use or the tyres you decide to put on it. It is no different with forklift truck tyres and therefore in order to maximise, performance, comfort, safety and efficiency, choosing the right tyres is extremely important.

At Barek, we have in-house experts qualified to advise you on your options and so that you choose the right tyre for your forklift.

Standard Tyres

We also offer our customers the option of choosing from a range of standard forklift tyres, however, we tend to advise against this option where possible because we strongly believe that in the long term, this option will end of costing the end user more money due to increased downtime of the forklift through either having to replace them sooner due to their shorter product life span or through an increase in the fuel costs.

The lift cycle of a forklift tyre

There are a number of factors that can impact the tread on a forklift tyre. These include the type of surface in which they are running on, the total number of hours its been used, the weight of the load its carrying and the quality of the driver operating the forklift. When the depth of the tread on the tyre is less than 5mm, it is time to replace with new tyres so that you are not risking damaging either the forklift or the driver operating the machinery.

Thorough Examinations – LOLER 98

A Thorough Examination of a forklift is akin to an MOT for car it ensures that the equipment is tested, certified and safe to use.

Under the LOLER 98 (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998) it is a legal requirement to ensure your truck is thoroughly examined:

  • In the case of lifting equipment for lifting persons or an accessory for lifting, at least every 6 months.
  • In the case of other lifting equipment, at least every 12 months
  • Each time that exceptional circumstances which are liable to jeopardise the safety of the lifting equipment have occurred.

All service engineers at Barek Lift Trucks are trained and certified to LOLER standards to provide the inspections that ensure your equipment is kept safe and within the current regulations.

If you wish to have your equipment LOLER tested, please contact a member of our service team on 01482 218151.
