As with any type of machinery, eventually there'll come a time when replacement parts are needed. Forklifts are no different, and knowing which parts need replacing, where to find said parts, and how to best utilize them, is crucial in keeping up your most important piece of equipment. LiftOne offers a wide selection of parts for all of the manufacturers we carry, as well as, an expert team of mechanics ready to answer any of your questions about parts or service. Here are the answer to a few of the most commonly asked questions:
Yes — we offer an aftermarket parts program which offers replacement parts for a wide variety of lift trucks. For many of our forklift brands, parts can be used interchangeably. That means your Sellick parts will work just fine with your Unisource forklift parts. The one major exception is with our Hyster forklifts. Here at LiftOne, we recommend sticking with OEM parts on Hyster brand lift trucks. If there is a part we don't have in stock, we have access to competitive truck parts available as quickly as the next day.
Technically, yes, but we don't always recommend it — Anything over seven years old runs the risk of breaking down, so your best option here is to consult an expert at LiftOne, as some unused or retired forklifts can aid in returning equipment to service quicker. Some parts, however, are not interchangeable on newer units.
Yes — LiftOne works closely with several rebuilders, both local and national, and several branches will rebuild transmissions in house. Each major rebuilder carries a warranty, varying from 90 days (local) up to a year.
They should — Hyster new parts carry a six month warranty for defects and workmanship. Our Aftermarket parts carry up to one year warranty. In house rebuilds carry the 6 months parts warranty and labor is 90 days. This is important: check the fine print on warranties and make sure all parts have passed the proper tests for safe use.
