Services We Provide
Universal Elevator is more than equipped to handle all your elevator installation needs. With quick turn-around times to ensure you meet deadlines and stellar workmanship that lasts, we are constantly under-promising and over-delivering!
We offer a variety of state of the art brand-named non-proprietary products to complement new building ventures, and we warranty everything we install for the first year of installation. We are adept at installing all types of passenger and freight elevators for residential and commercial use.
Our experienced repair supervisors and repair teams
have the talent required to do extensive troubleshooting
and make complex on-site repairs.
Our fleet of service vehicles come fully stocked with the
necessary tools, equipment, and parts to expedite repairs
and ensure minimal elevator downtime.
The life expectancy of most elevators is approximately 20-25 years.
When an elevator is past its prime, the repairs become more and more
frequent and the costs start taking a toll on your bottom line.
Our modernization program includes a full survey to determine what can and cannot be
retained, and a rushed timeline if needed. We use only non-proprietary and industry leading
equipment, so you will not be tied down to proprietary equipment, or poor-quality performance.
Our mechanics are passionate about preventive maintenance because they know how critical it is.
The lifespan of an elevator depends solely on the quality of the maintenance. What's more,
a well-maintained elevator has fewer shutdowns, resulting in increased satisfaction from tenants.
Universal Elevator's Maintenance Control Program focuses on the unique nature of each elevator.
We only employ highly trained maintenance mechanics, with years of experience in the field,
who really understand what maintaining an elevator requires.
Our in-house expediters are dedicated in ensuring your buildings are violation free. We handle all sorts of DOB related bureaucracy, such as ECB and PVT violations and are up to date with the latest codes. We also handle any elevator permits you need, from installation and modernization to dismantling and removing your elevator.
We utilize SiteCompli® to keep track of all DOB related issues, such as violations or residence complaints to the DOB. This allows us to send down a mechanic to investigate and repair before an inspector shows up to issue a violation.
