Servicing and Access Requirements:
As with all mechanical equipment, it is important that your equipment is looked after so it can continue to cater for your needs.
Our appointed domestic lift servicing contractor will visit your home every six months to undertake a service.
In addition to this under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1988 (LOLER), to have another person, separate from the servicing contractor, to thoroughly examine your lifting equipment every six months to determine it meets safety standards.
In summary, you will have one contractor servicing your lifting equipment every 6 months, and another contractor undertaking a thorough inspection every 6 months. Unfortunately, the two contractors are not able to attend on the same date.
Access is Vital. It is important you allow access for these visits as they ensure your equipment is continually safe for you to use. Failure to keep an arranged appointment will result in this cost being recharged to you.
