Due to their operation, Gissing was looking for a materials handling equipment provider which could help to increase the safety and reliability of their equipment on site by replacing their aged forklift truck. They also wanted a reliable service partner who would ensure that their equipment was well maintained to help reduce the amount of truck downtime.
Following a demonstration, Gissing chose an Approved Used Toyota Tonero 1.5 tonne engine powered counterbalance forklift truck with a weigh scale and a full canvas cab including full service support. Toyota’s System of Active Stability (SAS) which helps to protect the operator and the load was also an important feature in the decision making process.
Jason Gissing, Director at Gissing Farm Equipment says “We required an affordable replacement to our old forklift truck which had become beyond economical repair and we were very impressed with the options that Toyota offered. Their Approved Used forklift truck has provided us with a cost effective option that has the reliability and durability to work in all types of conditions.”
Toyota Approved Used trucks were once part of our contract hire fleet. Throughout their lifetime, they are maintained by our Toyota certified technicians with Toyota genuine parts. They are then refurbished in our dedicated UK fleet management centre and are subjected to a rigorous final technical inspection to ensure that they will provide the high levels of quality, durability and reliability they would as if they were new.
Gissing added “When we visited Toyota’s fleet management centre, we were very impressed with the levels of quality and detail which are applied when refurbishing their equipment. This made us confident that by choosing a Toyota truck we would not be compromising on the quality and reliability of the truck”.
Ronnie Finney, senior sales executive for the Midlands East area said “when I met with Gissing Farm Equipment and saw their operation first hand, I was confident that an Approved used truck from Toyota would provide them with a reliable and affordable material handling solution. All of our trucks are manufactured using the Toyota Production System which guarantees quality, durability and reliability and our dedicated fleet management technicians ensure that this applies to all of our Approved Used equipment”.
