The maintenance cost of your elevators is a small fraction of your overall building operation costs. And yet, the quality of the performance of your elevators is perhaps the most visible and most essential component of how your building is judged. At Southern Elevator, we believe that the proper maintenance of elevators is not the place to count pennies, when the long-term consequences of inconsistent or sloppy maintenance can result in giving a poor impression of your entire building operation.
All of these items cause a downgrade in the impression your building gives. Moreover, the neglect of proper inspection and maintenance can cause many thousands of dollars in premature need to modernize your elevators. All these things are routinely addressed by Southern Elevator. It’s our bread and butter and we do it quietly, discreetly, and expertly.
Caution: Beware of low quotes on maintenance by companies that promise a certain frequency of calls but do not live up to their promise. It’s one way a cynical provider tries to get away with pricing it cannot truly afford to maintain.
Our Maintenance Program
We offer a basic maintenance program called E&L (examination and lubrication), and three Preventive Maintenance programs that are designed to give you the peace of mind that your elevators are routinely inspected and serviced.
The programs differ in frequency of service, number of additional free calls provided, and the amount of parts replacements provided by Southern Elevator without additional charge. (Think of the parts-replacement program as your built-in free-part service, where Southern Elevator replaces the parts without charge up to a specific dollar amount per year.)
