Full-Service Equipment Repair
At Vitan Equipment, we provide full-service preventative maintenance, repairs, over-the-road work, and more throughout western Michigan. We staff a team of highly trained technicians with years of experience to bring you reliable, quality service. When it comes to your equipment, you shouldn’t have to worry about possible breakdowns. We provide top-of-the-line repair and maintenance services at a competitive price with our team of over-the-road and in-house shop technicians at our facility in Grand Rapids.
Our Services Are Performed by Our Highly Trained Team
Our technicians receive a minimum 40 hours of training every year to stay up-to-date on best practices, new technology, and equipment knowledge. These technicians provide your fleet with on-site, same-day, and 24-hour service. We assign a dedicated service advisor, biller, and parts representative to your account to provide consistent communication and account knowledge. You can trust our team to understand all the ins and outs of your equipment, allowing for a straight line of communication.
Planned Maintenance Program
Planned maintenance programs are essential to minimizing downtime and keeping you up and running. Depending on the condition of your equipment, we’ll customize a plan that works best for your fleet. With over 80 years of service experience, we provide more than a regular repair schedule, we bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in addressing our customers’ pain points. Our program includes:
- Comprehensive multi-point inspections
- A detailed, itemized issue report that is color-coded according to priority on every service
- Identified methods and suggestions to minimize wear and tear throughout your work
Total Maintenance and Repair (TM&R) Services
When you own a fleet of forklifts, repairs and maintenance can get costly as the equipment ages. With our TM&R program, we customize your contract based on your fleet and the average operating hours of your trucks. For one flat maintenance fee per truck each month, all normal maintenance and repairs are covered for the life of the contract.
Benefits of a TM&R contract include:
- Full-service equipment maintenance and repair for your entire fleet
- One flat payment every month
- Loaner equipment while we work on 72-hour repairs in our shop
- Easy to forecast expenses
- Elimination of unexpected, large expenses
- Identifying avoidable damage
Our TM&R program allows you to spend less time thinking about your fleet, and more time thinking about your business.
With our over-the-road service capabilities, we work on semis, box trucks, delivery vehicles, diesel engine trucks, alternative energy vehicles, electric vehicles, and more. Our team of dedicated OTR service technicians is always standing by to provide you with quick and reliable solutions.
We can also conduct a certified Department of Transportation (DOT) inspections and planned maintenance wherever you are. With the latest diagnostic equipment and electronic communications, our OTR teams are able to bring you quick and efficient repairs. Make sure your over-the-road vehicles are always taken care of with our services.
Our Shop and Warehouse
While many of our technicians work on-site at our customers’ locations, our in-house team works in our fully equipped warehouse to run diagnostics on trucks and perform any necessary maintenance to keep your equipment running smoothly. While we’re working on your equipment, we can provide you with our rental vehicles, so you never have to worry about downtime or suspending projects.
We also have access to a large inventory of over 150,000 material handling equipment parts.
Fleet Management Services
Fleet management is incredibly important to keep track of the life of your vehicles over time. All of our planned maintenance customers also receive exclusive access to our online fleet management system, Fleet Analyzer. Through this program, you’ll receive all types of details about your total material handling equipment usage. You can then use this data to make business decisions, maximizing your output while minimizing risk, expenses, and other metrics. You’ll be able to see exactly where you’re spending money and how to optimize your operation.
With this insight, you can feel free to:
- Decide if or how to rotate your equipment to maximize the life of your fleet
- Determine operating costs and when they will exceed replacement expenses
- Discover how much downtime costs and develop ways to eliminate it
- Identify where operator errors may be occurring
Additionally, your Fleet Analyzer report will include tools such as:
- Spend analyzer
