It may not occur to you how important the humble lift is until it stops working or has been taken away for refurbishment. How would you get to work on time if your faithful pal wasn’t there to escort you from one floor to another? The stairs are a killer, especially in your heels, and you will look bedraggled and unkempt once you finally reach the office. A lift needs to be in perfect working order if it is to ...Continue Reading → Share
It’s make or break time. You are running as fast as you can for the bus-which is miraculously early for a change-and seconds count. You have to make a good impression on your first day at work and cannot afford to be late. Everything has been going according to plan so far, so your good fortune cannot last for long. Suit newly ironed, shirt cleanly pressed, shoes so shiny that you can see your perfectly made-up face in them-you look ...Continue Reading → Share
Sometimes, if we’re lucky, the news will report something that gives us all a little giggle as opposed to the doomy gloomy savageness of our world. This is why when we saw the viral video of a Russian pizza delivery guy helping himself to toppings from a customer’s pizza in a lift, we couldn’t help but let out a raucous laugh.

How many times have you looked at a lift and wondered if it’ll even make it to the next floor? Slow moving doors, rough rides, and a worn exterior that almost makes the stairs look inviting. Vintage objects may be sought after in many industries, but in the lifts business what is ‘vintage’ generally equates to a liability.
A common myth amongst the lift possessors is that a lift service is only required when your lift, well, dies. Or if there’s ...Continue Reading → Share

It’s not the most common thing you’d expect to see, a man scaling a 1, 083ft-high Bailong elevator but hey stranger things have happened!
France Native and all round daredevil, Jean-Michel Casanova, recently took 68 minutes and 26 seconds to climb up the mountainous elevator, which is also known as the Hundred Dragons elevator, in Zhangijajie, China. With only his hands and feet to help him (that’s right folks, no harnesses!) Casanova teetered up to the top in what ...Continue Reading → Share

Lifts are a pivotal part of your business, although they do not seem overly significant to your day-to-day business they are essentially the hub of your company. Speaking from personal experience whenever a lift breaks down anywhere, generally panic ensues. Little dramatic, right? But that is precisely why it is vital that lifts are regularly serviced.
The challenging part, however, begins when trying to find a lift company that offers its customers a quality service as well as value for their ...Continue Reading → Share
