A major capital investment deserves the right plan.
Because of the Vertical Mobility service methodology, you can expect a longer life cycle from our elevators than our competitors. To our customers this means a less expensive elevator over the life of the building. This contributes directly to your bottom line – making the choice of who will maintain your elevator a critical one.
Major and Minor Components:
Hoist machines, motors, pumps, valves, microprocessors, circuit boards are critical components and very costly to replace.
Frequency of Visits:
Do you know how many times your service company has actually performed preventative maintenance over the past 12 months? In every elevator machine room there is a log book. Look to see if the frequency and length of the maintenance visit is consistent with what you are paying for. Is the mechanic signing his name and out the door in 10 minutes? Follow your mechanic around the next time and have them show you what they do on a typical maintenance routine.
State and local authorities typically require mandatory safety and pressure tests on elevators and escalators. When comparing service contracts, make sure you ask if the safety test is included in the contract.
