Trelleborg makes it easy to buy forklift tires
Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas Inc. recently launched its Interfit USA website. It is designed to help consumers 1) buy forklift tires and 2) make sure they fit properly.
The Interfit website is easy to use and does not require tire knowledge on the part of the buyer, according to the company. After logging onto www.interfit-usa.com and selecting the “find forklift tires” tool, customers are asked some basic information on their forklift and average hours of usage. A list of available tires is then provided.
After the tire is selected, the consumer is walked through scheduling and payments of the tires. The ordering process takes a matter of minutes to complete.
“The Internet has changed the way we purchase goods," says Program Manager Jason Canning. "The array of products we are able to purchase online has exploded. We believe forklift tires should be no different. Through our 500-plus nationwide Interfit authorized service providers we will be providing consumers with the ability to purchase our tires installed on their vehicles for the very first time.
“Using the proper tire can keep a forklift in service longer and reduce maintenance costs," he says. "Interfit is another example of how we are focused on providing the best 'total value of ownership.' We are giving tire consumer the tools they need to make an educated tire purchase. We believe that the forklift is the most important machine on earth.”
