Dealing with a broken lift in a tall building can be more than frustrating; perhaps it’s a place of work, or simply a tall building where people need to move easily from floor to floor. The lift may be required for those who suffer from mobility issues and are unable to use the stairs. If you have a lift in your building, you may be looking for a reliable lift maintenance company – after all, it’s always handy to have one on standby in case anything goes wrong. Below we share our top tips on finding a reliable lift maintenance and repair company.
You can never predict when you may need emergency lift repair services, which is why it is best to choose a company that offers a 24-hour emergency service. If you run a hotel, for example, you are likely going to need your lift to be working during every hour of the day and therefore it is best to choose a company that can come out to fix your lift at any hour of the day.
As with any service, you should always check what previous customers have to say about the service they received. When choosing a lift maintenance and repair company, look on their website for customer reviews and case studies. A reputable and trustworthy company will be more than happy to show off their positive reviews, or will be glad to provide you with customer references.
You should always choose a well-established company that has experience in the industry; after all, you can’t leave room for mistakes when it comes to lifts and the safety of your employees or guests. Check that the company in question has experience in servicing, maintaining and repairing the type of lifts that you have in your building. It is essential that the team is familiar with the components of your specific lift and has dealt with similar issues to the ones you may experience.
Checking out a company’s accreditations is essential; the last thing you want is to choose an unreliable company that operates without adhering to the appropriate safety standards. As a general rule of thumb, look for companies that are fully certified ISO 9001 (quality), and Safe Contractor and Constructionline approved. Do not be afraid to ask to see copies of certificates or evidence of accreditations.
