Thorough Examinations

By law, lifting equipment must be Thoroughly Examined at appropriate intervals (at least annually) to make sure it is safe to use – this includes lifting gear on forklift trucks. The Thorough Examination should always be carried out by a ‘competent’ person. At PLP Lift Trucks Ltd, all of our engineers are competent and we carry out Thorough Examinations on a daily basis for our customers.

You are responsible! Whether you own your forklift or simply hire it, the law demands you hold a current Report of Thorough Examination. You are responsible. You face the consequences of failing to comply, including the risk of prosecution, hefty fines and invalidated insurance cover.

A Thorough Examination is no place to cut corners. Which is why the two main bodies in the forklift truck industry – working with the HSE – have developed the definitive national scheme, administered via CFTS. With a CFTS Thorough Examination, you receive clear and comprehensive documentation, underpinned by uniformly high quality standards that comply fully with both LOLER 98 and PUWER 98 legislations.

At PLP we offer a discounted rate when a Thorough Examination is carried out at the same time as a service.

Refurbishment and Repairs

Even with regular servicing, over time your materials handling equipment can start to show its battle scars. At PLP we offer refurbishment and repair of all makes and models of materials handling equipment. From a detailed mechanical inspection and a new coat of pain right up to a complete strip down and rebuild, we can have your forklift or other equipment looking as good as it performs.

Use the tabs below to read what each level of refurbishment involves. To find out more or to discuss your particular refurbishment requirements give us a call on 01909 564 257 or click here to email us using our contact form.

A minor refurbishment consists of a check over the truck as well as a paint in our spray booth.

During a part refurbish we replace the parts that you request us to. We can carry out a part-refurbishment based on your budget, the age of the truck, or any particular concerns that you have.

During the refurbishment, we will carry out the following:

  • Strip down of the entire truck
  • Check the engine
  • Check the transmission
  • Check the brakes
  • Check the axle
  • Check the mast
  • Check all major components
  • Repair, renew or replace any components if required
  • Issue the truck with a service and thorough examination, in compliance with CFTS
  • Fully repaint the truck in our fully equipped spray-booth on site (we can paint a truck in custom colours, as we have done in the past for Virgin’s F1 Racing team)
