Fleet Management

Forklift Fleet Management

Did you know that only 15-20% of the total operational cost of a forklift is tied to the initial purchase of the machine? This means that the remaining 80-85% is allocated to maintenance, lost productivity, planned maintenance, operator training, crisis management, damages/misuse, and fuel costs.

That’s why Leavitt Machinery provides a comprehensive mobile equipment fleet management program. This allows us to assist your business in making educated, strategic, and economically responsible decisions regarding your mobile fleet.
