Why quality tyres can make all the difference to your MHE fleet
25 September, 2020 by Tom Peace
The importance of selecting a quality tyre to complement a materials handling equipment (MHE) purchase can often be overlooked or underestimated. As with any vehicle, tyres are crucial to achieving maximum efficiency, productivity and safety standards from your machines.
At Briggs Equipment, we’re proud to be partnered with world leading forklift tyre and wheel service company Interfit (Trelleborg), to provide our customers with access to the highest quality products and aftercare.
Marcel Smith, Briggs Equipment’s Head of Aftersales, commented on why all companies should be investing in the right tyres for their fleet, and the benefits that the Briggs – Interfit partnership delivers for customers:
“Installing the relevant and appropriate tyres goes a long way towards ensuring the highest performance and output from your MHE. The tyre is the only constant connection between the equipment and the floor, so any compromises on quality can have a negative impact on the entire operation and be a potentially dangerous safety hazard.
“If you then multiply those issues across a whole fleet, then companies can be missing out on a significant amount of productivity and wasting huge amounts of money, simply down to having poor quality or unsuitable tyres.
“Through our partnership with Interfit, we’ve been able to combine our expertise and deliver industry leading solutions to our customers that meets all applications, environments, equipment and budget. Whether it’s a two tonne electric forklift, heavy duty empty container handler or an access platform, we’re able to source, fit the correct tyres for the job and provide a comprehensive aftercare service.
“Adopting this bespoke approach to tyre fitting not only improves the overall performance of a fleet, but it also helps avoid costly delays and downtime that can be damaging to any business. Whilst tyre maintenance and replacements are inevitable, our unrivalled nationwide network of engineering support underpins our capability to respond quickly to any requests and help keep your business moving.
“Access to the very best tyres isn’t a privilege that’s just extended to large businesses either. Through our partnership with Interfit, we also provide a range of flexible purchase and hire options for tyres, to ensure you can find the ideal solution to match your budget and circumstances.”
