Is lift repair covered under my Stannah warranty?

For any Stannah warranty period, any breakdown or repair of your lift caused by wear or mechanical faults will be covered. You’ll have priority access to our qualified service engineers, who can repair and replace any critical components of your lift. Our standard warranty also includes service visits designed to keep your lift running perfectly for longer.

Who is responsible for lift maintenance?

It’s a legal requirement for any building owner to ensure all lifting devices under their care are safe and well-maintained. The simplest and most effective way of complying with these requirements is to have a lift service contract in place (along with regular inspections) - keeping your lifts reliable and safe to use. 

Is lift maintenance statutory?

Yes. If you own, or manage, or have control over a lift in the workplace, you are legally required to look after it to ensure that the equipment is safe to use.

While current UK law requires a lift service or maintenance visit at least once every 6 months if the installation is carrying passengers and once every 12 months if the lift is solely used for goods, these are minimum requirements and should be viewed as such. Additional preventative maintenance may be prudent and necessary to achieve optimum performance and minimise the risk of downtime.

What’s the benefit of lift maintenance?

Not only is it a legal requirement, but in the long run, maintenance increases the lifespan of the lift  and reduces the frequency of call-outs from breakdowns and costly repairs.

Do you have lift engineers near me?

Yes we’ve more than 350 directly-employed engineers out in the field, so from lift engineers in London to the Scottish Highlands we can help.
