3 Characteristics of a Trustworthy Elevator Engineer

Here at Elevators Ltd, we want to provide our clients with value for money that they can trust. We understand the three key qualities of a great lift engineer are qualifications, experience, and honesty. Our lift engineers are our representatives, so it’s essential that every team member possesses these qualities and is able to accurately represent the company ethos effectively. Therefore, Elevators Ltd is very mindful of these essential characteristics when recruiting lift engineers. Firstly, all our engineers are fully accredited. Read on as we go over three characteristics that every Elevators Ltd lift engineer needs to possess.

It is safe to say that the internal components of a functioning elevator are intricate,  our engineers always possess the necessary qualifications to carry out repair work. After all, the smallest mistake could deem a lift unfit for use and may land property owners with a hefty replacement bill. It is important that only a fully qualified lift technician carries out inspections, servicing and lift repairs. We are always happy to provide proof of up-to-date qualifications for your peace of mind and assurance. Elevators Ltd make sure that our lift engineers regularly refresh and update their knowledge so that we can remain confident that we provide our customers with the best lift engineers in the UK.


With this said, having a qualification to one’s name does not always make one an effective engineer. It takes many years of practical experience to grasp the art of elevator engineering which means that a newly qualified team member will never be allowed to work solo on complicated repair jobs. After all, the knowledge of an experienced engineer will ensure that every task is completed promptly and safely. We know a tradesperson with a detailed industry history can reassure our customers, and ensure our lift services are the best in the South East.


Although the main role of an elevator engineer is to inspect and repair the mechanical components, it is important that every client receives a high-quality service that they can rely on. As a result, honesty is an important characteristic of customer service and engineers should never bend the truth of an official elevator report in order to avoid upsetting the client as this may put their safety at risk.

In order to abide by our company ethos, the team here at Elevators Ltd is fully qualified to deal with each and every lift-related query. In fact, we provide highly practical and detailed consultations from industry experts who have over 50 years of combined experience in the installation and maintenance of a wide range of different elevators.
