Lift Maintenance Contractors
Building managers or lift owners have a responsibility to ensure that the vertical transport in their care is safe to use. Ongoing servicing from reliable lift maintenance contractors is key to ensuring optimum passenger experience, health and safety, and a good-looking lift at the heart of your business. At Tower Lifts our goal is always to maximise the return-on-investment a business will make on their vertical transport.
Lifts require regular servicing in order to remain compliant. The number of services depends on its function and frequency of use. A passenger lift providing average usage should be serviced 4 times a year.
UK-Wide Lift Maintenance Contractors
Whether you have a passenger lift, goods lift or platform lift, we offer scheduled maintenance designed to provide ongoing peace of mind. We minimise lift failures, prolong the life of the lifts we work on, and optimise your lift’s ongoing efficiency and performance.
Tower Lifts’ factory-trained maintenance engineers work across the full range of lift systems and are constantly updating their knowledge. Their first task will be to provide you with a free maintenance audit surveying the current condition of your vertical transport. This forms the basis of our quotation.
Bespoke Lift Maintenance for Your Business
Not all lifts need the same level of maintenance. At Tower Lifts we create bespoke lift contracts based on the age of your lift, its function, its daily volume, and the maintenance and repair history to date. Our engineers will also take into consideration the long-term business narrative for the lift. Are there plans for it to be replaced, modernised, or refurbished? If so, we’ll factor this in to our scheduling.
In addition to our maintenance checks, our engineers can also schedule in ongoing repairs as necessary. Where there is a case for modernisation of components to improve the efficiency of the lift, we’ll make recommendations and offer a quote for the work if appropriate.

1. Basic Lift Maintenance
All our maintenance services ensure that you comply with PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998). Our engineers will make an agreed number of visits each year, and carry out standard maintenance checks, including:
- Main drive system
- Landing doors, cabin doors, and interlocks
- Hydraulic systems
- Safety gears, suspension ropes, and chains
- Braking systems
- Overload detection devices
- Electrics – electrics, earthing, fuses
2. Passenger Lift Maintenance – Aesthetics
Whilst the safety of lift passengers is paramount, the look and feel of the lift is equally important. Often small upgrades and improvements can make a real difference to the quality of passengers’ experience. Our engineers will inspect and make suggestions for:
- Cabin décor
- Control panel
- Landing areas
- Lift doors
3. Platform Lift Maintenance
If you have a platform lift, or a lift providing access to passengers with limited mobility, your maintenance package will need to take into account the ongoing compliance requirements. Our wheelchair lift maintenance can integrate ongoing improvements in the form of handrails, or a waist-high control panel. These can be scheduled in to align with ongoing budget availability.
As lift maintenance contractors we’re used to dealing with the full range of platform lift installations. Whether you have an inclined lift, a vertical platform lift or a step lift, we ensure the ongoing optimisation of performance for users. Outdoor platform lifts require additional checks around drainage, cabin ventilation, and structural stability.
4. Emergency Repairs
Maintenance minimises the risk lift breakdown, but it cannot be completely eliminated. That’s why it’s important to partner with trusted lift maintenance contractors who have engineers available when you need them, arrive promptly, and make the necessary repairs to have your lift up and running again as soon as it’s possible to do so.
Tower Lifts has national coverage for emergency repairs, ensuring that an experienced lift engineer can be on site within an hour of the call being logged. If the emergency involves passengers who are trapped in the lift cabin, we will get there even sooner. Our rapid response team is trained to deal with members of the public experiencing this kind of emergency.
