Lift Maintenance Services Leicester

Lift Maintenance Services in Leicester

Statistically, everyone living in a city accesses a lift once every 72 hours. That figure gives us some idea of the number of elevators that are needed to keep a city working. We don’t have figures for the number of lifts operating in Leicester’s shops, offices, apartment blocks, homes, schools, public buildings and leisure facilities. We can be pretty sure though, that it’s close to 100,000.

Anyone who uses a lift for work, or to access their flat, knows how disruptive it can be if the lift breaks down. And for people who have limited mobility it can bring their day crashing to a halt. Tower Lifts provides Leicester lift services every day, offering lift installations, repairs, upgrades, and essential lift maintenance. Our goal is to keep the lift infrastructure in the city working at optimal rate.


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.


Who’s Responsible For Maintenance Checks?

Lifts become so much a part of our daily lives that we hardly notice them until they break down. It’s the responsibility of lift owners or building managers to ensure that maintenance checks minimise the risk of a lift being out of service. The PUWAR (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations, 1989) requires that lifts are kept in good working order, which means scheduling regular service and maintenance checks by experienced lift engineers.

Lift Maintenance Services in Leicester Save You Money

Emergency lift repair is costly, and there’s no guarantee that engineers can get a broken down lift up and running immediately. Delays to a lift service add to the expense, but there’s also the loss of productivity, access, and trust from passengers to be factored in to the final reckoning. Scheduling regular lift maintenance minimises the risk of break-down for passengers, and eases the financial burden for lift owners.

What Does Lift Maintenance Consist Of?

Normally, lift maintenance would take place once a year, and would include a series of standard checks:

Pit Maintenance:

  • Cabling
  • GFI outlet
  • Spring buffers
  • Sump pump
  • Rollers, guide rails, and levelling devices

Cabin Interior:

  • Control panel testing and bulbs
  • Call button lights
  • Clearance
  • Door panels operations
  • Acceleration and deceleration
  • Firefighter lift controls

Cabin Exterior:

  • Signs of vandalism
  • Removal of debris
  • Signs of rodents
  • Cabling top inspection station
  • Cabling
  • Door operator and components
  • Levelling devices, guide rails, and rollers

Managing Lift Repairs and Upgrades

No business wants to have to find money for a lift upgrade that comes out of the blue. Regular lift maintenance ensures that you know, and are able to plan for, elevator lift repair and upgrades. Our lift engineers will carry out running repairs during maintenance checks, and will include notifications and recommendations in their report. We’ll always give a lead in time where possible, to allow for business plan development and the allocation of budget.

Tailored Lift Maintenance Packages from Tower Lifts

We recognise that a home lift requires a completely different maintenance package from a busy office block elevator. That’s why we assess every lift before determining the kind of maintenance package you need. Tower Lifts engineers will audit elevator usage, age and maintenance history before recommending your maintenance schedule.
