5 Safety Tips Forklift Select Follows

Delivering big machines is complicated and special attention and care are needed to ensure that accidents don’t happen. Here are five safety precautions our company follows for a safe and smooth delivery:  


1. Only work with professional haulers

Forklift Select has been in the industry for a while. It has developed business relationships with professional haulers who we trust to deliver and transport our forklifts. It is important to use a company that is familiar with moving big, large and heavy equipment, not the cheapest company.


2. Examine the condition of the forklift

Before loading your forklift for transport, Forklift Select ensures it is in good condition and ready for you to use! Hence, it is important to examine the equipment upon arrival to ensure nothing happened in transit. It is still in ready to use condition.


3. Ensure that the fuel supply is off 

After your forklift is loaded for transport, the fuel is shut off (where applicable) and/or the fuel tank removed for transport if requested by the carrier.  Hence, this should ensure your forklift doesn’t explode.


4. Secure forklift with chains and binders

Forklift Select requires the use of chains and binder or blocks and bracing to secure your forklift on the truck bed. Hence, this will ensure your forklift arrives safely.


5. Ensure all transportation policies are met

Forklift Select follows all transport policies to ensure your forklift delivery goes smoothly and isn’t delayed. Hence, these policies include documenting shipping weight, clearance and product/shipping insurance.
