Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

Deciding on an Elevator Company

Deciding on an Elevator Company

Today, we’ll be helping you determine how to select the right elevator company.

Elevators are complex pieces of machinery, and it’s unlikely the average homeowner is going to know all of the ins and outs that one has. This is why it’s best to work with an elevator company whenever you need any help related to an elevator. Now, there are many elevator companies one could hire, but you want to be sure you’ve picked the right one to work with you. That’s why, today, we’ll be helping you determine how to select the right elevator company.

Put Together a List of Choices

When picking an elevator company, you need to know how different companies compare to one another. That’s why you should gather a list of potential candidates, and go down a list of criteria you need your company to satisfy. Compare factors such as experience, cost, customer service, service call response time and more to see which company ranks the most highly overall within your parameters. Getting a look at reviews from past customers can give you a good idea of which elevator companies offer the best service, if you’re still uncertain.

Ask Plenty of Questions

When you meet with an elevator company, ask questions that are important to you. Some questions you may have include how much time they’ve spent working on elevators, or what types of elevators they usually handle. Getting to know an elevator company more thoroughly will help you come to a more informed decision on whether or not they’re the right one for you.

Run Through Real-Life Scenarios With Your Elevator Company When Discussing Insurance

When you’re speaking to your elevator company, you should think about every possible problem your elevator could experience on any given day. Then, you ask your elevator company what types of coverage they offer, and see if the coverage they offer would apply to the situations you’ve described. The last thing you’ll want is to see a problem with your elevator, only to find that you don’t have the best company to fix it, as you originally thought. It’s best to discuss those details upfront so you don’t have to deal with surprises later.
