Servicing Your Kit
4 October 2018
Long-term projects require project managers to think about the next day, as well as a few weeks into the future. They almost have to be psychics. The beauty of working with PAL Hire is we take away the need for you to be psychic. Our support team help you plan your project, so you know when delivery, collection, and servicing of equipment is scheduled.
Servicing is Important Because…
Plant and machinery, like cars on the road, can be subject to failure at any time. They’re hanging on a thread of life and can falter without notice. Equipment failure costs money every day they’re out of order, which is why it’s important to have a servicing schedule.
Without a schedule, you’re leaving yourself open to the possibility of unexpected downtime which will result in additional costs.
You can plan servicing schedules with the help of our support team. The few minutes you spend with them at the start of the process could help prevent costs in the future. You can speak to them on 0844 288 7265.
Why a Schedule?
The simple answer is a schedule controls costs. It also helps you plan long-term.
A well-maintained vehicle minimises repair costs as parts are regularly checked. If a part becomes an issue, you’ll know when the next servicing is scheduled and plan your project towards that date.
Regular servicing will extend the lifespan of your equipment, as well as boosting its productivity. Due to a lack of servicing, equipment might not be operating at its maximum operational capacity, meaning the project will not be completed as efficiently as possible.
Servicing Plant and Machinery
PAL Hire ensures equipment remains on-site whilst being serviced, so you can begin using it immediately. Our suppliers have the tools and equipment to clean large surfaces, machinery, and vehicles, removing mud, dirt, and surface debris.
Our agreements have a fair wear and tear section; however, sometimes excess damage will require compensation. You can find out more about our minimum hire terms here.
Not Only Plant and Machinery
PAL Hire services portable toilets as standard, as well as offering clients the option of additional welfare services. Portable toilets are susceptible to odours and the additional welfare service has been requested by numerous clients.
We also offer effluent tank emptying services. This is advisable at regular intervals for hygiene, health and safety, and general cleanliness.
PAL Hire ensures all equipment is subjected to stringent and thorough checks before being issued to our customers. If you have equipment that needs urgent servicing, or wish to schedule a series of services, contact our team on 0844 288 7265 and they will help you immediately.
