Stock Parts to Save Time and Money

Equipment downtime, whether for planned maintenance or unexpected repairs, is costly. Minimizing the downtime of routine maintenance and repair is one of the best ways to keep your Genie® aerial work platforms out on rent and making money. Stocking your shop with the parts needed to keep your equipment out on rent will save you time and money.

Stock Parts to Save Time
When an aerial work platform in a rental fleet is in the shop, there is a lot of pressure to get it back in the field as quickly as possible. Having an inventory of parts on hand enables you to get to work right away on maintaining or repairing your equipment, rather than waiting 24 hours for the parts to arrive. And, some regions and territories aren’t easily accessible so it may take several days or more for those parts to be delivered, even if they are rushed from the factory.

To fulfill your parts orders and get them to you as quickly as possible, Genie ships from two parts warehouses in North America (North Bend, Wash. and Southaven, Miss.) and boasts the most comprehensive selection of certified parts for Genie equipment in stock.

Stock Parts to Save Money
Air freight charges are very expensive. And if the parts orders need to cross international borders, there are extra costs associated with getting them through customs. By ordering parts regularly and stocking them in inventory, you can reduce shipping charges by combining several small orders into a couple of larger orders.Stock Parts to Save Time and Money

When you do this, you can save additional money by taking advantage of the Genie free freight program in North America on parts orders of $750 or more. The program is designed to help you stock up on Genie Genuine Parts without having to pay for freight on large orders — making sure you have the right parts in inventory when you need them without having to pay pricey next-day air shipping charges.

Replacement components costs are individually small, but their impact on rental uptime is unquestionable. Having the right parts in stock can mean the difference between getting a machine back out on rent in hours instead of days. And with a little planning ahead, stocking parts can save you hundreds of dollars.
