Genie 360° service adds maintenance and repair contracts
By Maria Hadlow26 April 2010
Terex AWP (Aerial Work Platforms) is offering its Genie 360° maintenance and inspection contracts on all new Genie aerial work platform models in North America. The contracts include all scheduled maintenance and inspection related fees and are designed to make it easier and more convenient for equipment owners to keep machines in good order and to maximise its earning potential.
Thor Wickstrom, director of sales at Terex AWP said, "Our new maintenance and inspection contracts ultimately allow for sound business planning for equipment owners across the country. We have taken out a lot of the guess work when it comes to maintaining equipment. With our convenient contracts, it's all planned out ahead of time. This minimises downtime and revenue loss, and increases customer retention. Plus, a Genie 360° maintenance contract can extend the life of the equipment while increasing residual values."
Through the contracts all maintenance work is paid for upfront so there should not be any unexpected costs. Options include single year or multi-year contracts, with financing available through a Terex Financial ServicesTM plan so costs can be rolled into monthly payments. Contracts are also transferable - a bonus for the next owner of the equipment, and may be bundled with Terex Xtend, the company's extended protection plan.
Terex AWP says that other benefits include being able to more simply calculate the total cost of ownership to help with expense planning and ensuring that routine service and maintenance requirements are checked on a consistent basis reducing the potential for major repairs. All maintenance will be performed by factory authorised and trained technicians.
