The Importance of Preventative Maintenance: Service Now To Save Later

You are here

Bode Equipment Company offers layout and design services as well as sales and installation. We also offer repair and maintenance services following installations to our clients. At Bode, we feel that it is important to maintain the quality and safety standards of your material handling and supply chain equipment including dock equipment, VRCs, and power lifts.

We have service and installation technicians at Bode who specialize in motors as well as electrical wiring and welding, among other skills. Our installation and service technicians can offer periodic preventative maintenance to help your bottom line. Common methods of planning preventive maintenance are based on the passage of time, how often the equipment is used, and on an as-needed basis when problems are uncovered through inspections.

Much like oil changes on a car, material handling equipment benefits from periodic check-ups and inspections. These check-ups and inspections prevent costs associated with equipment failure including disrupted production schedules, decreased output, damage to products or other equipment, and employee injuries.

When you purchase a piece of equipment from Bode, we strongly encourage you to consider setting up a periodic preventative maintenance plan, in which our technicians visit your site and check the operation and quality of your equipment during an allotted time. Our technicians are knowledgeable, eager to work, and at your service.


“The communication and coordination on this project was outstanding. The Bode team not only provided regular updates on the progress of each install, they worked in such a professional and unobtrusive manner, never impeding the day-to-day work in any of our facilities. I have complete confidence in the knowledge and abilities of the Bode team. For anything material handling or warehouse related, Bode is where I go.”
