In general, when you install a new lift in your building, whether it’s an industrial, commercial or residential lift, you can expect it to last around 20 to 25 years with proper regular maintenance and care. However, it’s recommended you replace or carry out lift refurbishment on an old lift well before the end of its lifetime, to prevent additional costly breakdowns and improve the safety of your lift. If you’re in a position where you notice your current lift beginning to decline in performance, but don’t want to spend money on a brand new lift just yet, lift refurbishment is a fantastic option. Lift refurbishment involves fully servicing and updating your lift components to create a more modern appearance, improve performance and safety, and reduce the number of breakdowns you experience.
Lift refurbishment is a cost-saving measure in the long run as you’ll require fewer repairs and less regular maintenance, won’t have to worry about spending more to keep your lift in line with changing safety standards, and will have considerably fewer emergency callouts required. In general, a lift refurbishment can extend the lifespan of your lift by 10-15 years, and lift upgrades can increase your lift’s lifespan by even longer!
