Lift Service and Maintenance


In the United Kingdom, all lifting equipment must meet a rigorous set of safety standards; these standards differ depending on the type of lift, the environment it is installed within and the intended use. There is a legal requirement to meet such safety standards.

Lifts built in line with the Machinery Directive must meet standards set by the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER). These standards outline that each lift under the Machinery Directive should be subjected to thorough examination, commissioned by a competent person and serviced regularly to ensure the lift is safe for use.

Regular lift service visits ensure that your goods lift, car lift, vehicle turntable or platform lift remains in optimal condition and is safe and fit for use. Most lifts require at least annual servicing, but more advanced lifting technologies, man on board and lifts being uses within certain environments or subject to heavy use requiring bi-annual servicing.

Routine lift servicing identifies issues early, leading to more cost-effective repair and reduces the risk of lift breakdowns, which can be both costly and inconvenient.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and exceptional customer service. Our operations team use their expertise to coordinate lift service visits, lift repairs and lift breakdowns throughout the length and breathe of the United Kingdom. We plan accordingly, where possible, to keep service disruption to a minimum.
