3 Good Reasons to Hire an Elevator Consultant

Elevator Consultants save you time money and resources and help ensure that all your vertical transportation systems are in peak performance.

Having safe and reliable elevators and escalators are the goal of every building manager and owner. Ensuring they are working at all times for visitors and commercial and residential owners within the building is also top of mind to these same building managers and owners.

Elevator contracts are often complex and contain many small details and caveats that are often difficult for building managers to keep up to date on. Small details within those contracts can make costs vary significantly for elevator maintenance and upkeep.

For many reasons, including the aforementioned, many building owners and managers choose to work with an elevator consulting company. Let’s examine 5 Good Reasons Why?

1. Save Money and Time with Repairs, Maintenance and Upgrades:

Elevators and escalators are a major purchase and expense for any building that has them. The yearly expense to maintain, repair and upgrade them is a major expenditure for every building owner and building manager.

By hiring a professional elevator consulting company, this provides building managers and building owners with added experience and expertise to navigate the often complicated elevator service contracts so that the building owner and manager are more informed about the ways they can maximize both the safety of their vertical transportation and cost savings on those elevators and escalators.

Elevator upgrades and installations are a considerable purchase for any building. The cost savings of hiring an elevator consulting company in most cases will save building owners and managers much more money in the long run.

2. Elevator Consultants provide an unbiased assessment of Building Owner needs and their Service Partnerships.

There are over a million elevators in operation in the United States. Elevator maintenance and service is already a giant and growing industry. Finding the right elevator consulting company is something that many building owners and building managers focus on for both long term and short term projects.

Services and capabilities will vary with each elevator consulting company. Building managers and owners carefully choose an elevator consultant that will meet the needs for safety, compliance with local and state laws and overall service for their particular building and equipment.

The unbiased nature of the role that elevator consultants play in the servicing of elevators and escalators is a key reason why their services are sought out by building managers and owners all across the country. This role allows them to provide expert recommendations to building owners and building managers that often saves them both time and money in the long run.

3. High ROI:

That’s right. By hiring an elevator consultant, it can increase the ROI in the vertical transportation spending of the business owner and manager. This is because the elevator consultant can help ensure that quality products are being used and they will optimize compliance with state and local laws that will help the building owners and managers avoid fines, lawsuits and other negative consequences.

In other words, hiring a quality elevator consulting company will in most cases pay for itself by focusing the building owners on ways they can ensure safety for the vertical transportation passengers while saving them money by helping them oversee the service contracts they already have in place.
