Toyota Forklift Factory Warranties
Toyota forklifts are best known for their quality, durability, reliability, and overall value. In addition, Toyota forklifts are protected by an industry leading warranty. We understand that a forklift is a big purchase and our warranty plans are designed to protect your investment for years to come. As your forklift partner, Toyota provides two standard forklift warranties, basic and Powertrain.
Most Toyota forklifts are covered for 12 months or 2,000 hours under the basic warranty coverage. Toyota’s order pickers and reach trucks are covered for four months or 750 hours.
Toyota’s Powertrain Warranty continues for up to 36 months or 6,000 hours on most models and covers drive motors, electronic control panel components, contactor panels, differentials, and drive axles.
Toyota’s Extra Care Warranty Program is available at the time of purchase and up to 30 days after your forklift is delivered.
Toyota genuine parts are covered under a factory warranty for 1 year or 2,000 hours under normal conditions. If a Toyota genuine part fails within that timeframe and it was installed by a Toyota certified technician, Toyota will also cover the cost of labor.
The Toyota brand is know for engineering and manufacturing products of the highest quality. When you partner with Toyota for your material handling needs, you not only get a top of the line forklift, you also get a strong standard warranty solution and a cost effective extended warranty option to protect your investment for years to come.

Forklift Maintenance Plans – Toyota
Unlike classic cars, you don’t see a lot of people collecting forklifts as a hobby. If you buy a forklift, it’s because you have a job that requires lifting, stacking or transporting heavy material. But just like a car, if you don’t properly maintain your forklift, it will not run efficiently, or at all.
Fortunately, forklift maintenance doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. When you purchase your forklift, you have the option of adding a maintenance plan. Typically, maintenance plans are offered as either full maintenance, or planned maintenance. Both plans vary, but in most cases, full maintenance covers the cost of replacement parts and labor, while planned maintenance covers labor only.
When you opt for a forklift maintenance plan, you gain additional benefits. Most obvious, your forklift will be properly maintained on a fixed maintenance schedule, providing you the flexibility to plan ahead and adjust workload and schedules. And because your forklift is on a maintenance schedule, any major issues are much more likely to be discovered early, and before they turn into more expensive repairs. Forklift maintenance programs typically provide a high return on investment, and because the fee is a fixed monthly expense, you’re able to spend less time crunching numbers and more time focusing on your operations.
Often maintenance plans are financed right along with the forklift. When your forklift is properly maintained, your uptime increases. And you won’t be stuck spending time waiting on an available technician. Proper maintenance can also extend the life of your forklift, saving you time and money down the road. As your full service forklift partner, Toyota certified technicians are specially trained to work on Toyota forklifts. And to keep your forklift well maintained. Talk to your local forklift dealer about adding a maintenance plan to your upcoming forklift purchase.

5 Things to Know Before Renting a Forklift
Announcer: Is your forklift being repaired? Do you have a sudden or a short-term forklift need? Are you interested in a new forklift but want to try it out first? If any of these scenarios apply to you, renting might be the perfect solution. But before you decide to rent, consider the following:
Number one, you need a trained operator to run the forklift at all times. Standard safety regulations don’t change for rentals. Number two, you’ll be charged for damage to the forklift, just like you would for a rental car. Don’t do anything with a rented forklift you wouldn’t do with your own, including pushing or prying things with the forks. Number three, work with your dealership on your needs. A dealership will be able to help you figure out what model you need to get your work done.
Josh Smith: As a customer, when managing your rental fleet, one of the best things to do is to stay in contact with your dealer representative. The more communication you have with your dealer representative, the more stable and the better off your rental fleet will be. As a consultant, the dealership is able to provide their knowledge and their expertise in order to make the customer more efficient and more productive with their rental fleet.
Announcer: It’s important to understand that if you use a rental forklift in an application for which it was not intended, it could cause, or be considered to cause, damage.
Number four, you can rent a forklift for many different time increments. Renting a forklift is different than renting a car. In fact, a typical rental length for a forklift is two months. Number five, renting can be a great financial decision. If you need a forklift for a short time or only for certain times throughout the year, renting might make the most financial sense as you typically won’t have to worry about maintenance costs.
