Marketing Manager at Sheridan Lifts and chief blogger!

Here at Sheridan Lifts, our sales and estimating department is the place to be if you want to be in the midst of the action. With enquiries coming in all the time, our team work diligently to ensure all of our quotes go out in a timely fashion and are priced as competitively as they can be for our customers.

With our independence to the industry we are able to quickly identify suitable products to suit all markets, be it a 5kg goods lift or 10,000kg freight lift, 2 floor accessibility platform lift solution or a 40 floor high speed machine.

Enquiries come in to us through a host of channels including telephone or via the website and are dealt with swiftly by our team. On occasion, customers do phone in to just get a ballpark figure on what they should expect to pay for a particular lift in a particular location, and we are quite happy to advise this over the phone too. But the majority of our leads are serious enquiries from customers who require a site specific quotation for developments they are working on. This will generally be for passenger lifts, goods lifts, platform lifts or service lifts including dumbwaiters.

To extend confidence to our customers we are able to offer extended warranties to enable cash flow management and peace of mind be it 1, 3, 5 or 10 years.

You can view a full list of our lift installation options via our website, and also download our e-brochure from the same location, but for now lets focus on how those prices are calculated and communicated. I sat down with our Director of Sales and Business Development Nick Beetson and he was able to shed a bit more light on this process:

“In this ever developing world, lifts today come in all shapes and sizes to suit those needs of our respective clients. We have vigorously scoured and vetted the market to ensure we have a reliable, quality product that suits each and every application. We pride ourselves on competitive quality that we are happy to put our name to.

“As enquiries come through we are able to efficiently identify the suppliers best suited to offer a comprehensive lift installation solution.

“Our core business resides between the 2 – 20 floor market. This is an area we are extremely successful, illustrated by our loyal returning customer base.

“All products offered by Sheridan Lifts are FULLY open protocol allowing the end user to freely procure their lift service and maintenance regime in the open market. There are no specialist tools or passwords required just a competent company… Like us 😊

“Of course this is something to differentiate in the commercial world but we are confident our customers will remain with us for the long term with added peace of mind they are not tied and we are ultra-reliant on our performance”.

So there we go, straight from the horse’s mouth (sorry Nick!)

If we can help with any lift solutions you may require, don’t hesitate to get in touch today.
