Mobile Service Technicians

Resident Service Technicians

While mobile equipment repair service offers the most practical and cost-effective solution for some companies, others operate fleets that require constant attention. Black Equipment can assign a resident service technician to facilities like warehouses or distribution centers, manufacturing plants and other high-volume material handling operations.

These technicians maintain and repair forklifts, personnel carriers, scissor lifts, industrial sweepers and other essential equipment. 

Our resident techs gain an understanding and knowledge of a business’s equipment needs, which allows them to plan work, monitor parts inventories, and identify and assess the challenges that impact fleet performance. They use this information to help ensure your equipment receives timely maintenance and repairs to minimize unproductive downtime and extend your fleet’s service life. Having a resident technician could even lower your company’s labor costs. 

The typical resident technician works 40 hours a week in the same facility, often for several years. They frequently build loyal relationships with our customers and become valued and trusted team members.

In-House Repair & Breakdowns

Our in-house technicians are highly trained and experienced with all makes and models of material handling equipment. When your repair requires more space, more time, unusual tools, or cranes, we’ll bring it to our shop, where we’re equipped to provide top-notch service and repairs.

We recommend in-house service when:

  • Major components require rebuild or replacement
  • Specialized disassembly/reassembly is needed
  • Larger service area, lifting tools or shop equipment is needed
  • Hazardous waste handling is necessary
  • Repairs require more time to complete.

Our expert technicians have all the required certifications, service schematics and tools in-house to complete complex repairs and overhauls. We can also arrange inbound/outbound transport of your equipment. 

Reduce Costs and Increase Longevity With Planned Maintenance 

Planned Maintenance is vital in controlling maintenance costs. Black Equipment offers competitive maintenance packages based on manufacturer guidelines that can be tailored to your specific needs. We provide our customers with maintenance reports that break down where your dollars have been spent. With this information, we’ll help you develop a plan to reduce your overall maintenance costs.

Our Premier Fleet online portal gives you 100% transparency into what’s been serviced and how much has been spent. Fleet maintenance data is automatically entered at each service call and available at your fingertips on any Wi-Fi-enabled device. Because our service customers find it so helpful, Premier Fleet is available free to all our service contract customers.
