Our lift maintenance team work nationwide, which means we can come and attend to you directly – pinpointing any issues with reliability and producing an in-depth report. From here, we’ll detail the cause and what’s needed to fix it, including a review of statutory documentation, if required.

Why Use a Lift Consultant?

If you’re experiencing problems with your current lift, have just bought a building and want to make sure everything is in working order or just want to check if your lift meets the latest regulatory requirements – you need a lift consultant.

This is especially needed if you’re a building owner. You have a legal duty of care to lift users under current Health & Safety regulations and disabled access requirements – which means you must make sure passenger lifts are:

  • Safe
  • Properly maintained
  • Accessible to disabled users
  • Have statutory documentation, including LOLER certificates.
