Forklift mechanic salaries vary by location and level of experience. That said, TMH offers competitive wages and excellent benefits. Also, as the graphic below illustrates, mechanics can generally expect to make more as a forklift technician than an auto mechanic.
In our latest employee spotlight, we'd like you to meet Ryan Chapman, one of our newest forklift technicians, and John Sullivan, Fleet Manager in Livermore. Check out Ryan's great pic from his world travels, and learn how windmills helped John earn ice cream money as kid.
Toyota Material Handling of Northern California (TMH) has more than 110 factory-trained technicians to handle forklift repair calls on any make or model of forklift from our locations in the Bay Area, Fresno, Sacramento and Salinas. Of those 110 technicians, approximately two-thirds hold a master-level certification.
In today’s post we’ll explain:
- The difference between a forklift technician and a mechanic
- The value of having a master technician work on your lift truck
- The extensive experience, testing and training it takes to become a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Toyota Master Forklift Technician
At Toyota Material Handling of Northern California, we only hire the best. Every TMH staff member is committed to doing whatever it takes to help customers, and today we'd like to introduce you to a few of the hardworking members of our team.
To get started as a forklift technician, hands-on mechanical experience is helpful but not required. Some of the best technicians I know never touched a wrench until they started our apprenticeship program.
At Toyota Material Handling, we believe people are the reason for our success: both our customers and our outstanding team members. Today we'd like to introduce a few members of the TMH family, forklift technicians from our Fresno, Livermore and West Sacramento locations.
At any company, it's the people who make a difference. Toyota Material Handling Northern California (TMH) is proud to be a family company - in terms of ownership, the camaradrie among team members, and because we offer competitive salaries and great benefits so our staff and their families can live happy, healthy lives.
