Goughs Materials Handling


Gough Materials Handling & its predecessor Gough Forklifts have used Eastwood Tyres for over ten years.  The quality & range of products they offer is extensive & there is usually choice & price options available which helps when clients need to work against defined budgets.

Dealing with Eastwoods on a day to day basis has proved to be very easy. We make a telephone call, look at the options available & then let them get on with the job while we concentrate on our core business.

Their knowledge of the forklift industry & the varied applications available for hoists is in my experience, second to none.  This extends to situations where tyres or rims have been worn prematurely due to operator damage.  Eastwoods advise us of this & we are then able to recover costs which helps keep our own Fleet expenses better controlled.

The staff involved on the actual jobs, always keep our service office up to speed with the progress of jobs & their administration is very effective in issuing invoices promptly which again helps when billing clients.  In summary, Eastwood Tyres consistently meet & exceed our expectations.

We have been dealing with Eastwoods for 35+ years, they know their products very well and can give on the spot advice, price and availability without delay. Eastwoods are very helpful especially as they always seem to have stock tyres specific to our machines which are unique to NZ. No matter what model machine, Eastwoods have always been able to supply us at the drop of a hat ! Eastwoods are 100% service fit.

Twenty-seven years ago, I looked at tyres as a rental fleet running cost which was quite difficult to address. As tyres wore out we bought new from a big name supplier who charged a lot, was often out of stock and provided a fairly unsatisfactory fitting and repair service. The low service level often led to problems with rental clients who weren’t impressed by slow response to punctures and who didn’t care that a third party was letting us both down – they just wanted their forklift up and running.

Eastwoods changed all that. Because they were in the forklift business themselves they understood the needs of the industry and built a structure that met those needs. I can recall discussing with John Eastwood that I was amazed by the huge amount of stock he carried – his reply was that if your forklift needed tyres you didn’t want to be told “there’s so little demand for that size, we don’t carry them and there’ll be three months before delivery.” John’s theory was that a happy customer will be a repeat customer, and so will their friends, because word of mouth in a relatively small industry is a powerful force.

Well, all these years later John and Russell Black’s big gamble has paid off – both for them and their clients. First with CESCO and as Sales Director of Northern Forklifts for the last 16 years, I’ve watched Eastwoods prosper. They are our “one stop” tyre shop as they are for most of the forklift industry, a position they’ve earned by stocking a complete range, technical know-how and assistance, tyre monitoring, fitting and repairs and most of all a commitment to customer service and long term relationships. At Northern Forklifts, we look forward to the next 27 years of partnership with Eastwoods.

We have been using Eastwood for just over a year.  In that time we have found Eastwood's product range to be extensive hence enabling us to have a better gauge for our particular needs and applications.

We have found our dealings with Eastwood to be helpful, informative and hassle free. Their product knowledge in relation to our industry has been extensive and informative.

An example of the way Eastwood goes the extra mile for our needs is ensuring that they acquire various new products from new suppliers such as Rader Vogel poly wheels to suit our applications.

Eastwood staff have been helpful in determining problems and failures of products and recommending alternative options. They are informative in the way they do business and they handle and dispatch our orders promptly.

Loadlift had a long history of purchasing forklift tyres from Eastwoods, however, in the last few months we have been using them exclusively to supply, attend on site and fit tyres to all our lease, rental, workshop and retail machines.

The quality of the tyres is always appropriate to the customer's machine needs and we have never been told they are out of stock.

Customer service is obviously a point of pride at Eastwoods - we have always received exceptional service. During the (very infrequent) times there may be a delay, we are always kept informed. In addition, industry and product knowledge is excellent - one of the main reasons we use Eastwoods.

We have many customers with large sites which are busy and the machines move constantly - rather than querying us where machines are, they take the initiative and sort it out themselves. This attention to detail and professional approach is much appreciated as we are a very busy service department.

We are always well informed and the information gathered regarding damage to rims and machine hours means we can monitor the machines from the information Eastwoods provides. It also means that any customer damage to the rental or lease fleet can be charged appropriately.

We are very happy with the product and the service we receive from Eastwood Tyres.

Years of experience

"When we talk with Eastwood staff, we can analysis the need and be understood. We're looking for tyres for customers on Nilfisk-Alto cleaning equipment as well as a wide range of materials handling and other equipment.

"Factors to consider include working surfaces,  loading and the type of machine and Eastwood staff advise credibly because of their years of experience."
