This compromises the performance and useful life of your equipment. Part of our evaluation focuses on maintenance deficiencies by the elevator company. We provide the elevator service company a minimum 30-day period to rectify the list
  • 2. Because our evaluation is detailed, we frequently discover latent problems that can be corrected before they become costly or present a possible safety problem
  • 3. By reviewing invoices from your Elevator Contractor, we can eliminate many costly unnecessary payments for repeated problems and charges that are covered under your maintenance contract. By eliminating these unnecessary charges we’ve found this to be one of the most noticeable returns on your investment
