Hiab has received an order for 14 MOFFETT truck mounted forklifts from Topps Tiles, the UK’s leading tile specialist. Half of the ordered equipment represent Hiab’s pioneering MOFFETT E-Series which is the world’s first lithium-ion powered truck mounted forklift. The order also includes total repair and maintenance contract, Hiab ProCareTM.
“MOFFETT E-Series truck mounted forklifts offer silent and emission free deliveries for urban night-time deliveries. Our customers can expand their business window and contribute towards environmental savings with electric MOFFETTs When developing the E-series we wanted to ensure that this solution generates efficiency in our customers’ logistics as well as improves the carbon footprint,” says Barry McGrane, Director, Sales and Product Business Management, Truck Mounted Forklifts, Hiab.
“The experience we have from the MOFFETT E-Series is very positive. We want to enhance our fleet to include more of this type of emission-free and silent equipment. This also offers us the opportunity to deliver stock outside of store trading hours more effectively”, says Doug Bingham, Head of Supply Chain at Topps Tiles.
Topps Tiles decided also to include Hiab ProCareTM maintenance contract for the agreement. “Hiab ProCare(TM) is a flexible service contract to secure uptime for Hiab equipment. With scheduled and predictive maintenance, our customers’ equipment retains the high quality they have invested in from the start. Each piece of equipment receives professional care via our global service network. Also, with ProCare, the customer ensure the lowest total cost of ownership and highest re-sell value for the equipment”, says Mr. McGrane.
“ProCare agreement ensures that we can concentrate on our work. It offers us service inspections, emergency breakdown repairs as well as the replacement of worn out parts with originals designed specially for MOFFETT and gives us, as a customer, the same functionality and safety”, Doug Bingham from Topps Tiles continues.
