  • The lift cabin and doors are looking old and worn out detracting from the overall look of your building?
  • Your lift has become unreliable and expensive to maintain?

We will also provide you with an option for a complete lift replacement where the cost of your upgrade requires the replacement of too many components or your equipment is not suited to an upgrade.

My lift is unreliable. Will it require replacement or an upgrade?
This can only be answered once we have inspected your lift and understand the age and condition of the equipment. Then we can provide a budget price or a detailed quotation.

We can review the condition of your lift and recommend maintenance and upgrade options. 
I am a Property / Building Manager. How long will it take to replace my lift?
If the lift is being upgraded or replaced, we will provide a detailed program of work with our quotation. 
Lift upgrades typically take less time than a complete replacement. 

For Lift replacements, the rule of thumb durations are
  • 1 week for removal of the existing lift
  • 1 week for building works, this depends on scope
  • 1 week per floor + 1 week (for lift replacement). 

Therefore, for a lift with 3 floors, that needs to be removed and replaced, with additional building works, the time to replace your lift = 1 + 1 + 4 = 6 weeks ball-park estimate.  

I am a Property / Building Manager. What is the budget cost to upgrade my lift?
Octagon will not provide a budget price without completing an inspection of your lift. Once an inspection is completed, we can provide budget prices with options for your consideration, or we can provide a detailed Quotation.
