Liftline Maintenance Monitoring
Employing a lift maintenance contractor to service an existing instalation will not protect clients from the costs arising from breakdowns, vandalism or modernisation. However, it is essential that the lift maintenance contractor selected not only provides the service required, but fulfils its obligations properly.
Liftline can assist clients in selecting a suitable lift maintenance company together with the correct type of contract which will best suit the client, the installation and the circumstances within the building.
If minor improvements are recommended by the insurance company or the lift maintenance contractor, Liftline can assess the works, negotiate a fair and reasonable cost and monitor progress.
An additional service offered to clients is Lift Maintenance Monitoring. This involves the periodic inspection of the level of service and the upkeep of a running log which allows the standard of service, the performance of equipment and the overall operation to be monitored. The standard instalation monitoring is often linked with a regular safety audit to ensure that safety aspects are kept up to date. Monitoring is most usually utilised by Clients holding a large portfolio; however it can prove vital for many clients.
At present Liftline undertakes the regular monitoring of about 250 units. Many of these contracts run for three of four years with inspections being carried out at three or four month intervals.
Proper servicing is not only essential, but can constitute a significant part of the total cost of a units upkeep.
