Service & Maintenance
The expense of a service and maintenance contract may seem daunting, especially if the forecourt is operating on a tight budget. However, regular maintenance will lengthen the lifespan of dispensing equipment and ultimately lower costs, providing a sound investment in the company’s future.
By proactively scheduling maintenance, site owners can significantly reduce the risk of their equipment failing and consequently relax, safe in the knowledge that they have taken the necessary precautionary measures to sustain operational uptime. There is never a good time for a dispenser to break down, as invariably the resulting downtime is much longer than the downtime required for scheduled maintenance. Adopting an ‘if it isn’t broken don’t fix it’ attitude and relying solely on reactive maintenance leaves the site vulnerable to added costs and lost profits.
With effective maintenance management, the equipment will receive proper care and inspections, which identify potential problems before they become serious issues. During the service, the equipment will be cleaned and lubricated, with the replacement of any parts showing signs of excessive wear. All of these activities help to keep the equipment running smoothly and efficiently, minimising failure rates and reducing depreciation.
