“There are five easy ways to reduce your elevator expenses by 10 to 20 percent,” says Eagle Elevator owner and operator, Russell Renick. “Building owners, property managers and condominium associations simply have to be aware and understand elevator contracts, codes and competitive pricing.”
The five ways to reduce your elevator expenses include:
1. Elevator service contracts should be understood, especially when it comes to the length of the agreement, cancellation penalties, overtime and drive charges. Monthly service contracts allow for cancellation without penalties if the client is not happy. Multi-year service contracts offer discounts but buyer beware of stiff cancellation penalties.
2. Repairs or remodels can be completed by a smaller elevator company at prices 20 percent less than major competitors' prices even when the service contract is with that larger company.
3. Scheduled Maintenance is required every month for commercial elevators and preventive maintenance should be undertaken. Otherwise, there will most likely be fines for violations, repairs and more frequent remodels, which will cost much more in the short and long run.
4. Proprietary elevator equipment should be avoided because it locks accounts into one company and its prices for the life of the elevator. Proprietary equipment restricts the ability to bid out repairs, so prices are not competitive.
5. Elevator codes are changing and should be understood. An elevator expert should help educate clients and make sure elevators comply. If elevators do not comply then they will receive violations and resulting fines up to $1,000 per incident.
