Our engineers are supported by our thirteen regional offices and centralised communication team, who will assist you with any enquiries you may have and manage the day-today movements of our engineers.

We don’t subcontract

Many lift maintenance and repair companies claim to cover the entire of the UK, they do this by sub-contracting to other lift companies. At Pickerings Lifts, all of our engineers are directly employed. This means that you will receive the same of level high-quality service wherever you are in the country, from an engineer who is proud to work for Pickerings Lifts.

All of our engineers are highly qualified (at least to NVQ Level 3) and receive regular training to keep them up-to-date with the latest technology and health & safety guidelines.

A 93% first time fix rate

We can fix 93% of problems on the first call-out, ensuring your lift will be back to normal as soon as possible. On the rare occasions where our engineers can’t fix the issue on their initial visit, we have a network of regional field engineers who are available to offer further fault diagnosis and resolve the problem quickly and with minimum disruption to your business.

We’ll keep you up to date with real-time information

We utilise tablet technology to report issues in real time and have developed a bespoke database that can provide various reports so you can see how we are working, what issues we have encountered and how we are performing against any KPIs you may have.

On our larger contracts, you will have a dedicated account manager who will build a specific knowledge of your needs and requirements and be your first point of contact if you have any questions or queries.

Lift maintenance contracts to suit your needs

We offer various types of lift maintenance contract depending on your preferred level of coverage, however during each scheduled maintenance visit we will check all safety features and devices, check the general operation of the unit and check the condition of all parts.

We can also advise on recommended improvements in line with the latest legislation, reducing energy consumption and improving performance. We are well-equipped to cover multiple sites across the whole of the country and count national chains of pubs, fashion stores, care homes and restaurants as our customers.

Regardless of the level of contract you are on, you will receive the same exemplary level of service and we will meet with you regularly to ensure your needs are being met.

A thorough service each and every time

Many lift maintenance companies will only visually inspect your lift when they come to ‘service’ your equipment.

We on the other hand, allocate specific times to allow our engineers to thoroughly test, adjust and clean your lift as part of our planned preventative maintenance schedule, ensuring your lift is maintained to the highest standard, minimising breakdowns and maximising your lift lifespan.

We can maintain any type of lift

We will look after all of your lifts – regardless of who manufactured them. Our engineers receive extensive training on how to not only repair our own lifts, but our competitors’ lifts too.

When we repair your lifts we use ‘open protocol’ parts – this means parts that can be maintained and serviced by any lift maintenance company – we strongly believe in not tying our customers into products that only we can support.
