One Stop, One shop - Everything batteries

Poor performing batteries dramatically reduce lift truck utilization. In order to minimize costs and reduce equipment downtime, a good PM and Repair Program will help to keep things moving.  

By utilizing Thompson & Johnson Motive Power Service, repairs are performed safely and efficiently on-site. This will help reduce the removal of batteries from your facility and rentals while most repairs are being performed, resulting in much quicker turn-around time. 

Our technicians will gauge performance and determine the expected longevity of the batteries. We catch problems early to reduce the cost of ownership significantly.

On-Site Repairs Include:

  • Capacity Discharge Testing
  • Cable Repair / Replacement
  • Connector / Contact Replacement
  • Single Point Watering
  • Safety Shroud Replacement
  • Charger Repairs
  • Cell Replacement
  • Battery Neutralize and Wash
  • Vent Cap Replacement
  • Recycling
