A lift contractor can undertake lift installation and modernisation/refurbishment works, provide maintenance and call out services along with repairs. While they can offer advice and recommendations on issues relating to your lift, their revenue generation is through the sale of products and maintenance. There is a risk therefore that any advice provided might, either intentionally or unwittingly, be affected by bias or a lack of knowledge of certain areas.

As a lift consultant, we provide independent technical expertise. We do not install or maintain lifts, nor are we affiliated with any lift company. We are therefore able to always act on behalf of the client. Our experience and broad technical knowledge allow us to provide advice on all aspects of the industry that is both independent and without bias or prejudice. This gives our clients peace of mind when it comes to making the right decisions.

Whether they are looking to install a new lift, modernise an existing lift or simply manage the day to day operation of a lift portfolio, we provide assistance and advice on issues from planning and design, to maintenance and legal responsibilities.
