Lift Modernization Handover Audit

What Is a Lift Modernization Handover Audit?

A lift modernization handover audit is a complete audit of your newly modernized lift equipment, it’s performance, safety, efficiency, as well as an independent scrutinization of its modernization and maintenance contract. Significant effort is also put into making sure that your current lift supplier is actually fulfilling what they have promised in your lift modernization and maintenance contract.


Above all, a lift modernization handover audit is a completely independent review of your lift and its maintenance to ensure you are getting the best service possible from your lift supplier. The end goal is to save you time and money in the long run through a longer lift lifespan and lower overheads in energy and repairs. 

What Are the Benefits of a Lift Handover Audit?

It’s easy enough to assume that once your lift has been modernized, there isn’t much more to worry about; after all, there is usually a free service period (for a specified time), and after that, the lift maintenance programme will take care of the rest. 


Like all pieces of machinery, however, components may fail, and you’ll want to make sure that your current lift supplier is actually doing the work they promised to do to mitigate these failures. 


A lift modernization handover audit will ensure that your newly renovated lift is in complete accordance with what you paid for, and that your current lift maintenance service provider is up to rigorous independent standards. 

Above all, a lift modernization handover audit is absolutely impartial; it will discover what is objectively there to see, not what a lift service provider wants you to see!
