All South West Forklifts machines are regularly serviced and receive a “Thorough Examination” and full documentation in line with the following regulatory bodies.

LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations)

  • Chains
  • Forks
  • Mast
  • Carriage & Tilt System

PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations)

  • Brakes
  • Steering
  • Seatbelts
  • Overhead Guards
  • Tyres

South West Forklifts will provide you, upon inspection, with a “Thorough Examination Certificate”, a full report of the condition of your forklift and peace of mind that the truck you are operating is safe.

Why should you have this done?

It’s the law! You are required to ensure that your forklift holds a valid “Thorough Examination Certificate” issued at least every 12 months or more regularly for heavier use and special applications ie operating a Man-Up Cage.
This applies for every truck you own or hire.

Don’t forget that keeping up regular servicing and inspections will reduce unexpected bills and prolong the life of your equipement.
