Lift Maintenance Solutions


Tower Lifts is a UK wide lift provider, offering design, installation, repair and maintenance services across pretty much every county in the British Isles. Over the last decade of growth, one of our top priorities has been to ensure that each of our clients receives top quality local services, wherever they are located. Our lift maintenance solutions are a case in point; we take pride in the fact that they are delivered to clients by carefully recruited local teams of engineers.

Essential Maintenance Checks

Millions of passengers use vertical transport every day, and it’s the responsibility of lift owners to guarantee their safety. A new lift installation is just the start. PUWAR (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998) is the regulatory body which manages the use of vertical transport. It is a requirement that lift owners and managers keep lifts in good working order, by scheduling regular maintenance carried out by professional engineers.

Regular Lift Maintenance is Cost-Effective

A broken-down lift is costly. It’s not just the emergency call-out fees; it’s also the loss of passenger goodwill, productivity, and access for mobility-impaired users. The Tower Lifts dedicated repair team is consistently busy getting lifts up-and-running for owners. Our message to them is always the same; a proactive maintenance package is far more cost-effective than reactive emergency call-outs.

Lift Maintenance for Forward Planning

One of the major benefits of regular lift maintenance is the potential it provides for scheduling repairs in advance. Tower Lifts engineers will manage running repairs in the course of their maintenance checks, and deliver a detailed report at the end of the process. If an upgrade, or modernisation is required, the report will draw attention to it, allowing plenty of time for a business plan to be created, and budget allocated.

Bespoke Lift Maintenance Solutions

A commercial enterprise with passenger lifts and goods lifts that are constantly in use will need a different level of maintenance to a residential lift used only by a handful people. Before determining your lift maintenance package, our Tower Lifts engineers will carry out a detailed audit on usage, age, and previous maintenance record. We will provide the appropriate level of service to maintain the safety of your passengers.
