Forklift Battery Repair

Minimize downtime and maximize the productivity of your forklift fleet

When your forklift fleet fails to perform at optimal levels, your organization loses money. Perhaps your forklift is sitting idle due to a dead battery or forklift battery run times have declined, while forklift downtimes have increased. Most warehouse managers face these problems when managing a forklift fleet.

Our team is committed to getting your warehouse operation back up and running ASAP, while maximizing battery life and performance.

How the TMS forklift battery repair and reconditioning process works

When your forklift batteries are underperforming—or not performing at all—we’ll send a TMS service technician to your site to troubleshoot the problem right away (typically within 24 hours or less). If we can handle the repair onsite, we will. For example, if a battery cable is broken or contact tip needs replacing, we can usually handle that repair on the spot.

If the issue is more physical in nature—say a forklift battery cell replacement is needed or corrosion is the problem—the technician will transport the forklift battery back to our local shop for analysis and reconditioning. He or she can also arrange for loaner batteries if needed.

When a forklift battery arrives at TMS for repair, our experienced battery service technicians visually assess battery condition and perform a series of battery performance tests. Once our team determines what corrective actions are needed, we present the options to you before proceeding.

Our forklift battery repair recommendations are based on facts, not guess work

As the exclusive provider of HAWKER® Powersource, Inc. motive solutions and forklift battery repair in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio regions, we perform diagnostic tests using HAWKER® best-in-class data management technology. The HAWKER® Battery Boss tool allows us to pinpoint problems by assessing battery data such as battery age, number of cycles, discharge and rest times, electrolyte level and more.

When evaluating battery condition, we also determine whether it is more cost effective to repair, recondition or replace your forklift batteries. Then you get to decide. TMS wants to be your go-to resource for forklift battery service, which means we tailor solutions to meet your forklift fleet performance and budgetary goals for the short- and long-term.

TMS’ comprehensive forklift battery reconditioning services go way beyond charging and washing batteries

While some forklift battery service providers do a fine job washing, charging and replenishing acid in batteries, their services often end there. At TMS, we embrace a full-service philosophy and take extra time to fully recondition the viable batteries that enter our shop. (If your battery isn’t worth repairing, we’ll tell you so.)

Whether a battery needs repair due to sulfation, improper watering, stratification or being over-discharged, our goal is to recondition the battery and recover any power available left to be reclaimed. If a forklift battery cell replacement is needed, we recommend doing so to improve the efficiency, success rate and life expectancy of other cells in the battery.

Fully reconditioning batteries makes fiscal sense when batteries can be returned to 80% capacity or more. In fact, we find many customers can avoid forklift battery cell replacement and prolong residual life expectancy of their forklift batteries following TMS’ forklift battery reconditioning services.

Contact us for complimentary, worry-free forklift battery scrap disposal

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the United States and the state of Texas have put safety rules and regulations in place because your employees and you have a right to a safe and healthful workplace. In order to comply with regulations established by OSHA Texas companies must dispose of forklift batteries according to OSHA guidelines. If you don’t comply and OSHA traces an improperly disposed forklift battery back to you, your company will be fined.

 Let us take those worries off your hands—leave forklift battery scrap disposal responsibilities to us. Simply contact Texas Motive Solutions by phone or email to get the process started. A representative will visit your facility to see what batteries need to be removed and schedule pick up. We’re happy to offer this complimentary service at no cost to you.

After we remove the batteries, you will receive a certificate that transfers ownership of the batteries to TMS and removes you from any liability. TMS follows all state and national guidelines for battery scrap disposal and works with a lead smelter authorized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

How efficient is your warehouse forklift fleet operation?

Find out with a complimentary forklift fleet performance analysis from TMS!

At TMS, we work closely with our customers to ensure they purchase the right motive battery and forklift battery charger solutions from day one. In order to accomplish that goal, we dedicate time to learning about the inner workings of the client’s warehouse operation and perform a non-invasive, Power Study to analyze forklift fleet and motive battery performance.

This complimentary service is critical because it allows us to find out:

  • Where operational efficiencies could be improved.
  • What power requirements your operation really needs.
  • What type of forklift batteries and chargers would work best in your application.
  • How best to optimize the performance of your forklift fleet.

The HAWKER® HawkerNet™ cloud-based battery management technology we use allows us to analyze battery performance in real time. This tool is also easy to use and non-invasive, so your forklift drivers won’t even know it’s there. Because the Power Study data is so precise, we can propose a solution tailored to you needs, which means you won’t waste money on batteries and chargers you don’t need.

Again, we aim to get the right equipment into your facility from the outset. When your power requirements change or equipment is aging out, we’re happy to come in and perform another Power Study at no cost to you.
