Lift service and maintenance

Melbourne Lift Servicing and Maintenance

Lifts are an integral, and in some cases a liberating, part of modern living in public buildings, residential apartments and home settings.
Lifts are highly technical pieces of equipment with many moving parts and complicated electronics that all work together to keep the user safe.

Melbourne Elevator Maintenance P/L is a locally based company in Melbourne. Our qualified and experienced lift mechanics are mature and reliable. We understand Melbourne and what it takes to meet the customers expected level of service.

To ensure all lifts are safe, Work Safe and Australian Standards requires all lift owners to both:
1. REGULARLY MAINTAIN THE LIFT
2. CONDUCT AN ANNUAL SAFETY CHECK & TEST.
