In my twenty five years of experience in the elevator and lift industry, I have seen many companies come and go.
I have seen countless failed products hit the market and unfortunately, I have seen numerous clients hand over their money and not have their expectations met.
When making a big ticket purchase such as an elevator or a lift it is important for potential clients to do their homework. Clients should look past flashy marketing material and ask hard hitting questions of their sales person. The following is a list of questions that we believe your Elevator or lift supplier should have no issues answering.
- How long has the distributer been in business; will they be around years from now should you need support?
- How long has the product they represent been manufactured; will parts be available in the future?
- Are there multiple installations available for viewing?
- Do they conduct their own installations or is this outsourced?
- Do they make over the top claims such as offering warranty periods that far exceed their experience in the trade?
- Can they provide testimonials from real people who have had their product installed past the warranty period?
- Who services the product if there is an issue, and can they be reached after regular business hours?
As I stated, my experience spans 25 years and I have been at the helm of Uppercut since 2013.
