Lift Maintenance Birmingham

Lift Maintenance in Birmingham

Birmingham was known as ‘the iron heart of England’ during the Industrial Revolution, when it was powered by coal, furnaces and factories. Now the UK’s second city is powered by office workers, service industries and logistics businesses but it’s still one of the most successfully performing economies in the UK. We like to think that the work Tower Lifts engineers do in maintaining the lift infrastructure in the city, plays a small part in its ongoing success.

A Birmingham Lift Installation and Maintenance Company

With over 15 years’ experience in delivering bespoke lift solutions to the city of Birmingham, we know how dependent its businesses are on the lift infrastructure. We design vertical transport for banks, hotels, shopping centres, schools, office buildings, warehouses and civic buildings. Many of the lifts we install provide the only means of access to work and amenities for people with limited mobility.


If you have a lift that is in need of maintenance, call Tower Lifts today on 01525 601099. We’ll assess your requirements and create your tailor-made package.


Why Lift Maintenance Birmingham Makes Sense

Our rapid response lift breakdown team is kept busy in Birmingham. Their aim is always to restore the lift to working order in hours, allowing everyone to resume their normal routines. Where we can’t make an immediate repair, we provide updates on progress until the job is complete. There will always be circumstances where a breakdown happens out of the blue. Most of the emergency call-outs we attend, however, could easily have been avoided by a regular maintenance check.

How Tailor-Made Lift Maintenance Works

Rather than waiting for the crisis to hit, we always advise businesses to subscribe to regular maintenance. Tower Lifts doesn’t offer standard lift maintenance packages, because no lift installation is standard. Before putting your tailor-made package together, we will assess:

  • The age of your lift
  • Its maintenance and repair history
  • The volume of lift use
  • The position of your lift
  • The function of your lift
  • Upgrades required

The assessment will inform the number of maintenance checks required each year, and any ongoing work that needs to be scheduled.

Averting Crisis Through Scheduled Management of Lift Repairs

Your lift maintenance engineer will carry out a detailed and thorough maintenance process once or twice a year. This will include running repairs where necessary. Each check will generate a report detailing any recommended upgrades or immanent repairs. We always try, where possible, to give a ‘run in’ time for repair, or upgrade work. This allows for the making of the business case, in order to allocate budget.

Why are Upgrades an Important Component of Lift Maintenance

If you inherit a ‘legacy lift’, or if your lift hasn’t been maintained for a number of years, it’s likely that it will need a number of upgrades. These could include:

  • Health & Safety upgrade
  • Inclusive Access upgrade (DDA)
  • Passenger Cabin upgrade
  • Lift frontage upgrade

A Tower Lifts engineer will advise on how to prioritise your upgrade schedule, and suggest a process of incremental scheduling. This means that the improvements take place over months or even years, starting with the legal obligations and moving on to aesthetic considerations. We understand that budgets are always tight, so we’ll always find a way to create maximum benefit for the funds you have available.
