Our Goal for You
With any operation, no matter how large or small, one of your major overhead expenses is the acquisition of material handling equipment and the related maintenance costs. It is Guardian’s goal to ensure your forklift equipment will operate to its fullest potential, not only each time an operator starts a shift, but for years to come. This is why Guardian’s slogan is “Protecting Your Forklift Investment”. GMH will achieve this through preventative planned maintenance repairs, proper lubrications and the utilization of all adjustments.
