The Permatt breakdown service is on hand to make sure you get a quick and effective recovery service should your truck breakdown or stop working correctly. We know how important your forklift truck is to your business and how any problems can cause major delays to material handling movements, so we aim to get you back up and running as quickly as possible.


If one of your forklift trucks breaks down unforeseeably this can cause many negative consequences for you, including loss of productivity, financial implications and employee frustration. Time is spent by multiple people on trying to fix the issue that you simply can’t afford to waste and shouldn’t need to.
