Oversized trucks can be difficult to service. The equipment needed is different from that of a regular vehicle. It’s harder to find good equipment, and it’s harder to maintain. When you are in a remote area, the service charge for repairing the equipment can be astronomical. Endurequip is well aware of these challenges, faced by businesses in the area, and when Spurty’s Mechanical reached out to them, they worked together to find the perfect solution.
Spurty’s Mechanical provides service and maintenance to trucks and other heavy vehicles. Located in Kalgoorlie, WA, a hub for the trucking industry where oversized trucks frequently stop for repairs and servicing.
The remote location meant that Spurty’s was on the lookout for equipment that would stand up to the harsh terrain, red dust, and environmental conditions prone to Western Australia.
In order to service the oversized trucks and trailers, they needed hoists that were:
• Reliable and proven in the industry
• Easy to maintain, with little downtime for maintenance
• Quality products with safety of their employees a key priority for the business.
When Spurty’s Mechanical started looking for new and updated equipment, they reached out to us at Endurequip, knowing our reputation in the industry.
They investigated the option of Bluetooth hoists but realised that these were prone to syncing issues, meaning that trucks could have potentially being stuck on the lifts, resulting in longer downtime and a loss of productivity while this key issue was rectified.
With emergency stops and safety locks, our hoists were a draw to Spurty’s. Our simple maintenance program yet reliable chain technology means that Endurequip, together with our national authorised repairer network, are able to maintain the hoists for Spurty’s, allowing them to focus on their core business. A win for a busy repair and service shop.
Flexible Customer Terms
On top of the product itself, our financing partner, A Class Business Finance, was able to provide a flexible financial plan for Spurty’s to help with the purchase of the hoists and other workshop accessories, setting up invoicing according to Spurty’s needs.
With all the pieces of the puzzle falling together, we were able to get Spurty’s up and running with their hoists quickly, allowing them to get a jump on the trucks waiting in the shop.
The hoists make it easier for them to work with the heavy trucks daily. The ease of access to the truck to change out large components makes their jobs easier and safer. It allows the employees to focus on the mechanical issues they are servicing.
Spurty’s have now extended their Endurequip range with the additional purchase of two hoist posts and other workshop accessories to add to their capabilities.
With Spurty’s customers being happy, the employees can focus on doing what they do best – fixing trucks to keep Australia moving.
