Each facility constantly confronts concerns about the upkeep, maintenance, improvement and/or even replacement of any particular elevator. Over the years, clients have communicated to us that they are not certain how best to spend the funds that may be available for an elevator. They are not certain as to the quality of the elevator maintenance/repair they are receiving, nor of the quality of the contract with a particular elevator company. They are most times not prepared to make a decision that affects the future of the elevator equipment. This may result in extra time as well as money spent without the proper return.
