If we were to ask you to name a machine that you own that is expensive, highly technical and requires regular servicing to keep it operational and safe, you’d probably think of your car. Well, the same could also be said of your home elevator
Most people understand the importance of excellent brakes, tyres, and steering on their car.
To keep these things in peak condition and prevent inconvenient breakdowns and costly repairs, responsible car owners have their vehicle serviced at regular intervals that are determined by both time and usage.
To keep it running efficiently and safely, your home lift should be serviced the same way.
An annual once-over from a qualified technician and repairer will ensure that critical components like door mechanisms and the braking and buffer systems are in good condition and that the whole system is in proper working order.
Waiting for breakdowns to occur and then calling for a repair is not only highly dangerous, it’ll also end up costing you a lot more money in the long run.
As with so many things in life, an ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure.
The highly technical and often inaccessible nature of lifts can make breakdowns extremely difficult and expensive to remedy, not to mention the inconvenience and danger of having someone trapped inside for an extended period of time.
Not only will regular servicing ensure the safe and efficient operation of your home elevator, it will also extend the longevity of the system.
Much like your car, a platform lift or passenger lift represents a significant investment, so the smart thing to do is make it last as long as possible.
As Perth’s leading provider of lift maintenance services, at Octagon lifts we can help you maintain a regular home lift maintenance schedule that will protect this valuable asset.
With our highly experienced qualified technicians on the job, you can rest easy knowing that you’re in safe hands.
If you wouldn’t drive your car for years without getting it serviced, then don’t make the mistake of doing the same with your home elevator.
