Workshop Repairs

IMG_1807On occasions it will be necessary for your forklift to be repaired at our modern, purpose-built depot. At this secure, CCTV-monitored facility, we carry out the tasks that would be complex or time-consuming for our Service Engineers to complete in the field.

Our comprehensive garage allows complete refurbishment of forklifts, damage repair, engine rebuilds, mast changes… anything required to bring your truck back to new.

While your truck is at our site, subject to availability, we can provide you with a suitable hire forklift to keep your operation running.

If you maintain and repair your own equipment, sourcing components is key to getting your forklift up and running quickly, in the event of a breakdown. As well as having a huge array of items in stock, SWIE-LIFT is part of a UK supply network which will allow us to get nearly any part you require, next day.


To ensure maximum reliability and safety, it is critically important that your forklift trucks are serviced regularly. SWIE engineers are available to visit your site and service equipment at a time that suits you, minimising downtime and subsequent disruption to your operation. Call 01639 823000 for more information.
