Safety Inspection and Maintenance Program

Metropolitan Car-o-liner announces new Safety Inspection and Maintenance Program.

You have made a substantial investment in necessary equipment to run a successful business. This equipment must stay operational to allow for maximized production.

Our customers have been asking us for a safety inspection and basic maintenance program repeatedly throughout the last several years. Safety Inspection and Maintenance Programs are widely used in many manufacturing and repair oriented businesses and are found to save thousands of dollars lost due to equipment down time. This down time is often due to lack of maintenance or minor repairs that turn into major failures.

Most of the time we have seen routine maintenance ignored or forgotten when technicians who are focused on their production are tasked with these duties. As a result, we have created this Safety Inspection and Maintenance Program to take the burden off of you and your technicians and insure that your Car-O-Liner equipment has regular safety inspections and periodic maintenance.

Enclosed is a list of the operations that will be checked or maintained for each Car-O-Liner product that our factory-trained service technicians will inspect as part of this program. You will receive a printed Inspection Report at the time of service.

Upgrade to a scheduled inspection plan! Let us schedule a return visit every 12, 6 or 4 months with an annual inspection agreement and get discounted rates for each visit and service parts.

Please contact our office at 800-526-0318 for more information or to schedule your Safety Inspection and Maintenance Program appointment!
