Lift Maintenance London

If you’re one of the 1 million businesses operating in London, you’ll know how important vertical transport is to keeping people and goods moving across the city. Lift breakdowns can have a major impact on profits, which is why Tower Lifts is committed to providing top quality servicing, 24/7 emergency repairs and lift maintenance in London.

Our comprehensive lift services in London include preventative maintenance, ensuring that engineers identify issues and respond promptly before they become major issues. Tower Lifts’ engineers are ISO 9001, SafeContractor and CHAS Accredited making them a natural choice for your business.

Who is Responsible for Lift Maintenance in London?

Lift owners or managers of lifts used by employees or members of the public have a responsibility to keep them regularly maintained. The regulatory body PUWAR (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998) states that the work needs to be carried out by a trained lift engineer in compliance with Health & Safety regulations and the manufacturer’s instructions.

The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) require that lift owners or managers take responsibility for the following:

  • Maintaining the safety of lift
  • Ensuring that lift maintenance is carried out at statutory intervals (every 6 or 12 months)
  • Acting promptly to remedy any defects


Tailored Lift Maintenance Contracts

The aim of any lift maintenance check is to maintain optimum performance for passengers, ensure health and safety compliance, and carry out any immediate repairs where required.

Tower Lifts has 3 priorities when scheduling lift maintenance checks for business:

  • Minimise lift downtime.
  • Reduce lift breakdowns.
  • Increase the lift’s lifespan.

The regularity of lift maintenance checks is dependent on a number of factors: The age of the lift, the volume of traffic it carries each day, the location, and its maintenance history. Tower Lifts maintenance contracts are based on a lift audit which allows us to tailor our lift services to the specific needs of the business.

Our fully stocked vans support Tower Lifts’ maintenance engineers ensuring that repairs can be dealt with promptly across London. Our maintenance checklist includes testing, servicing, lubricating, and inspecting each component. Every session is logged in the lift service history.

Ongoing Compliance With LOLER Inspections

LOLER compliance requires that thorough examinations or lift inspections are carried out regularly in order to ensure high standards of health and safety. These need to be carried out by a ‘competent person’ every 6 months for passenger lifts, or every 12 months for goods lifts.

Tower Lifts is accredited by UKAS which means that our engineers can carry out LOLER inspections or thorough investigations.

Emergency Breakdown and Repairs

We provide the entire range of lift repairs, from a temperamental button to a complete breakdown. The goal of our repair engineers is to minimise the interruption to your business through prompt and efficient service. Customers won’t be inconvenienced, your business won’t be impacted, and you won’t lose money.

Tower Lifts 24/7 emergency breakdown and repairs can be included in your tailored maintenance contract.

Lift Modernisation

Lift modernisation is a process of upgrading your lift electrics, mechanics, doors or cabin interior. Existing components are replaced with the most up-to-date technology, or materials, with the aim of:

  • Improving lift performance.
  • Enhancing the safety of the lift.
  • Ensuring cost-effective running of the lift.
  • Improving the aesthetics of the interior and exterior of the lift.

Modernisation targets specific areas of concern and is an excellent strategy for lengthening the lifetime service of your lift.

Tower Lifts Provides Lift Maintenance in London

First and foremost, lift maintenance is a cost-effective way to ensure the ongoing safety of your passengers, and reliability of your lift. Tower Lifts engineers will make running repairs during their maintenance checks and flag up more significant repairs needing to be carried out over the next year. This way, lift owners are able to plan ahead, and allocate budget where necessary. In the long run, lift maintenance is a much cheaper option than emergency callouts for one-off repairs!
