Choosing The Right Company For An Elevator New Installation
If you are in the market for an elevator new installation and you do not already have an elevator company that you trust to carry out the installation work for you then you need to read this in full. If you choose the wrong elevator installation company then you can end up with a lot of problems in your building and dissatisfied renters.
An elevator new installation is a complex process and you want to ensure that you have the very best team hired to complete the job well. You must do your homework and not just choose the first elevator company that you see.
Can the Elevator Company provide what you need?
There are a lot of elevator services out there that can provide different services. Some companies specialize in elevator new installations with newly constructed buildings. There is a lot more involved with an elevator new installation if your building is being newly constructed so the experience here is invaluable.
Then there are other elevator companies that have a great deal of experience with upgrading existing elevator installations. Again there are complexities here that need to be overcome professionally so find out what specific services potential elevator installation companies can offer you.
Request that a number of potential companies come and have a look at your building and ask them all the same questions. You will no doubt have concerns about disruption (if it is an upgrade installation), cost, quality of materials, qualification of the elevator engineers and so on.
What kind of Reputation doe the Elevator Company have?
You must find out what kind of reputation the elevator company has when it comes to elevator new installations and other elevator services. If you know other building owners that have had new installations then ask them for their opinion. They should be willing to tell you if they have had good or bad experiences.
If you do not have other building owners to discuss this with then you can find some reviews online. Most of the reviews will be genuine but you need to be careful here. Look for reviews that tell a story and if there are some minor low points mentioned do not be too concerned about this.
There are likely to be a local Board of Contractors that you can consult with as well. They will normally hold useful data on local elevator companies and will be glad to help you with any questions that you may have. Do whatever you can to find out how well respected an elevator company has before you make a final decision.
How good is their Customer Service?
You may think that this is difficult to test until you hire a company for your elevator new installation but there are a number of things you can do. Contact potential elevator companies on the phone and ask them a number of questions. How well do they answer the phone? What is their attitude to your inquiry?
The second way you can test customer service is to get a representative of the company to meet with you on site. Did the person turn up on time? Did they know what they were talking about? Were they able to answer all of your questions? Do you think that they really want your business?
Bear in mind that there are some very large elevator companies out there and your elevator new installation may be seen as a small job to them. They may not really want the job and this can be evident from the attitude of the representative.
