After Sales Service

We are structured, and fully committed, to providing the highest level of after-sales service tailored to meet the individual needs of our customers.

The quality of UniCarriers’ after-care is based on three fundamental principles:

      Customer Needs

We recognise that while all customers are individual, their business needs are the same. Whether they operate for 8 hours a day or 24 hours a day 7-days a week, they demand a high level of uptime. UniCarriers’ service organisation has been built around these demands, offering tailored packages to suit each customer’s requirement.

Parts Standardisation

We have had a policy of parts standardisation since 1959, which continues to this day. This means that there are only 5,000 parts covering the total product range, resulting in only 1,000 fast moving lines, which the engineers carry with them at all times. This means we can confidently underwrite uptime guarantees in even the most demanding environments.

Mobile Service Depots

Thanks to rigid parts standardisation - unique in the industry - we can ensure that our field-based service engineers hold stock of all frequently used items, this results in 95% of breakdowns being fixed on the first visit, thus providing maximum uptime and reduced customer costs.

Order pickers

Order pickers are flexible and manoeuvrable, and are used to assist and lift up their drivers for easier picking at low, medium and high levels. When not used for picking, these trucks can also be used for the transport or stacking of pallets.
