The Best Elevator Companies in Pinellas County FL Are the Ones Proven Safe To Spend With

Some elevator contractors in Pinellas County FL will also do an elevator remodel of an existing elevator and can provide options of finishes and materials for the interior, such as laminate, stainless steel, brass and more. Some elevator companies also specialize in preservation, repair or retrofits of historical elevators such as those with ornate wood interiors or originally manually operated elevators in older and historic buildings.   Still others can do elevator modernization for slow running elevators, elevators missing modern safety features, those experiencing frequent break-downs, and overly warm or noisy elevators.  These elevator companies will also provide emergency phones and elevator camera systems.

Questions to Ask Elevator Companies & Elevator Repair Services in Pinellas County FL 


When choosing which elevator contractor in Pinellas County FL or elevator service company to hire, ask the right questions about their experience, range of services, credentials, and manufacturer relationships:
 

• How long has the elevator company been servicing Pinellas County FL?


• How many other clients do they currently have?

• Can the elevator company give you names and numbers you can call as references? (All elevator  contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had client references called  by our so you don't have to.)

• How much experience does the elevator company have making, installing, repairing, or remodeling elevators of your exact type? Elevators for the home and vintage elevators for example, might require different expertise, as can freight elevators versus passenger elevators.

• Will they be using or installing proprietary equipment that locks out other elevator companies and limits your future choice of companies to hire?

• Regarding elevator maintenance services, do they require a contract, and if so, for what time period?

• Do they provide 24/7 emergency service?

• How will the elevator company determine pricing?

• Does the elevator contractor have a relationship with only one manufacturer that they service, install, and recommend to clients, or instead, do they offer you choices among multiple manufacturers?

• What warranties and guarantees does the elevator contractor offer separate from any manufacturer warranties, or is the contractor's labor perhaps warrantied by the manufacturer?

• Can the elevator contractor prove that all their workers sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All elevator companies in Pinellas County FL bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Does the elevator contractor have active workers' compensation and general liability insurance? (All elevator contractors in Pinellas County FL bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• In preparation for a written bid for your evaluation, what process will they undertake to do a thorough assessment of the property, or of the existing elevator in the case of a remodel or modernization?

• Will they be performing all the work themselves or will they be subcontracting any part of it out, and if so, what is the name of that company?

• If the work is for an in-home elevator (residential elevator), will you have access to your home during the project?

When you've chosen the best elevator company in Pinellas County for your specific needs and priorities, make sure they are licensed by the state of Florida since that's required by law. (All elevator companies in Pinellas County FL bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
