Why Is Lift Maintenance So Important?

Regular lift maintenance and servicing is important to ensure the safe and smooth running of your lifts. It can help to catch any minor issues before they become more significant, preventing dangerous, costly, and time-consuming breakdowns.

As well as keeping your lifts safe and secure, preventative lift maintenance ensures your lifts are legally compliant. Lift owners must ensure they follow the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER), which underscore the importance of routine maintenance to keep your lifts safe and reliable.

LOLER applies to all types of lifts that are used by the public or by your employees, including both passenger lifts and goods and service lifts.


How Often Should a Lift Be Serviced?

By law, any lift that carries people (such as a passenger lift or hybrid passenger goods lift) must be inspected at least every 6 months.

If the lift is only used to transport goods (such as a dumbwaiter lift or car lift), then it must be inspected at least every 12 months.

Although you only legally have to get your lifts inspected once or twice a year, we recommend having more regular inspections to ensure that everything is running smoothly and any minor issues can be caught before they develop into more significant problems. This can help you save money and time in the long run by making breakdowns far less likely.

If you notice a change in the performance of your lift or have any concerns about the safety of your lift – even if nothing has happened yet – you should get in touch with the Sheridan Lifts team as soon as possible. We’ll be there swiftly to put your mind at ease and make any necessary repairs.

By law, you must ensure that your lifts are inspected at least every 6 months if they carry passengers and at least every 12 months if they only carry goods. Building owners must adhere to LOLER regulations to ensure their lifts are as safe and reliable as they possibly can be.

The lift owner or building manager is responsible for the maintenance of all lifts on the premises. It is up to them to ensure that the lift is safe for use, that inspections are carried out regularly, and that any issues are reported swiftly to a licensed lift engineer.

A lift maintenance visit generally involves a thorough inspection of the lift and its components. The engineer will check for any signs of wear and tear and make any necessary adjustments or repairs. This may also include tasks such as cleaning, lubrication, and testing of safety systems.

Typically, lifts are designed to last between 20-30 years. This will depend on the quality of the lift installed and how well it is maintained. It is normal for a lift to be refurbished or replaced at least once or twice in a building’s lifespan, if not more.

If your lift is old and you’re concerned that it might need replacing, your engineer will be able to tell you during your lift maintenance inspection. If so, you can count on us when it comes to removing your broken lift. At Sheridan Lifts, we also specialise in lift refurbishments, allowing you to modernise and increase the lifespan of older lift models.

Several factors will influence the cost of maintaining your lift, including the type of lift, the frequency of maintenance required, and the specific services included in your chosen maintenance package.

At Sheridan Lifts, we believe in transparent pricing and making sure that you only pay for the services you require. We’ll ensure you get the service you need for an affordable price, and can even work with you to create a bespoke lift maintenance package if you prefer.

Investing in preventative maintenance can save you significant amounts of money in the long run. Potential problems can be identified and rectified before they become major issues, making lift maintenance a wise choice for any lift owner.

Lift maintenance refers to only regularly scheduled visits by our skilled engineers. This is a preventative measure to help identify any issues or potential issues with your lift that should be looked at again in the future.

Lift servicing is slightly different, in that it isn’t regularly scheduled, but is when we fix any potential issues or examine the lifts if something is a little off. If a lift repair needs to be carried out during a service visit, we can also make sure this happens.
