South West England’s Leading Specialists in Lift Maintenance

At Euro Lifts Limited, we pride ourselves on being experts in lift repair, installation and maintenance. Our products are of the highest quality and we strive to keep up with technological advancements to be the best in the business.

When it comes to lift maintenance packages, we offer two options. The Level 1 package involves a comprehensive assessment of your lift to ensure it’s fully functional and safe to use. However, for a more thorough lift inspection, you can opt for the Level 2 package which includes a range of extra lift services. As a lift repair company, we’ll gladly assist you with this decision.

There really is no substitute for lift maintenance. In fact, owning a lift comes with a legal obligation to have it serviced regularly by a professional to ensure it’s safe to use. Lift maintenance companies will also check that your elevator is functioning at optimum efficiency, helping to add years to your product’s lifespan.

Providing a Comprehensive Lift Service on Which You Can Rely

We aim to retain our reputation as being one of the most dependable life maintenance companies in the South West, which is why we operate an emergency 24-hour callout service, ensuring help is never far away when you’re faced with a potentially disastrous situation. Plus, it’s not just our availability that makes our company the envy of the industry.

Thanks to our industry expertise and having over 30 years of experience, we can source OEM parts from just about any European manufacturer. If required, we’ll source parts from even further afield to get your lift back up and running. Our comprehensive library of specifications, lift information and drawings means no lift repair or maintenance task is beyond our capabilities. As you can see, we really are the leading specialists in our field.

We always prioritise your best interests, and our procurement record is simply unrivalled. Even if you require parts that are no longer in production, we’ll track them down or reproduce them ourselves.

Euro Lifts Preventative Maintenance Contract Level 1 includes regular visits at prearranged intervals, called up on our automated servicing systems, and carried out by our fully trained and experienced engineers on their servicing runs.
