Why hire an elevator consultant?
Elevator projects are crucial to a building’s success. A poor performing elevator can cost businesses valuable time and money.
Understanding elevator and escalator complexities has always been challenging. Bad elevator maintenance, repairs, modernizations, or elevator construction can harm your business and reputation. It’s imperative that elevator work is done correctly and cost-efficiently.
Here are 7 reasons you need to hire an elevator consultant.
Jeff L. is the board president of an eight story building with one elevator. The building has a property management company which handles daily operations.
Based on poor elevator performance, the board and property manager decided to switch the elevator maintenance company.
The property manager requested maintenance bids from four elevator companies.
Each bid was completely different in terms of scope and price. Choosing the best provider was difficult.
They decided to hire an elevator consultant for expert advice.
Jeff L. found ElevatorLab which connected him with multiple elevator consultants offering maintenance contract consulting services.
By reviewing skills and experience, Jeff L. was able to compare and award a consultant in less than three days. Using ElevatorLab was free for Jeff L.
Roland C., an independent elevator consultant, was hired for $650 to organize the bids and make scope revisions to release a new RFP. He prepared a new scope and collected multiple proposals for the exact same scope of work.
He organized the results and differences of each vendor. The information was presented back to the building in a simple format to help make the decision.
Result: Roland’s elevator consulting services saved the condo association more than $6,500, over the five year of elevator maintenance term.
