“Replace, repair or refurbish? Our expert advice helps you to decide”

Sometimes lift companies recommend that you replace an older lift with a new, mass-produced lift package, rather than prolonging its working life. Ask us for advice on modernisation and refurbishment of your hydraulic and electric traction lifting equipment (including passenger lifts, goods lifts, stair lifts/elevators, platforms and dumbwaiters).   

PIP Lift Service Ltd examines all of the facts and does a full site survey, after which you’ll be presented with all the options that will meet your specific requirements, which may include modernisation or refurbishment.  The company’s UK-wide team of qualified lift engineers and technicians all have the specialist knowledge and technical skills to replace, refurbish or modernise all types and brands of lift. 

Your site survey will also establish whether your existing lift equipment still complies with the required legislation and industry-specific compliance standards.

Typical modernisation or refurbishment works may include:

►Control panel replacement

►Drive / performance Improvements

►Car interior upgrades

►Door equipment update

►Health & Safety upgrades

►The Equality Act 2010 improvements

►Works in accordance with the latest B.S. Standards

► “Phased approach” modernisations.
