Now, we don’t want to worry you, that’s the last thing that we want to do; but elevators are becoming a popular choice for criminals.  In New York City, there have been 3,330 elevator crimes due to the enclosure.

As with walking in the dark on your own, it is always advisable to take the route that is well lit up even if takes longer, as oppose to walking down a dark alley. It is similar with lifts. If you’re going to take a lift that is in an unfamiliar building that doesn’t look right, especially in an apartment/ flat building, then be aware of your surroundings and who is about. Let someone know that you are on your way in the lift so they are aware that you are coming and if someone ‘dodgy’ steps into the lift, choose a floor that is on a lower level. If you are afraid, then press the lift emergency button and someone will be there to help.

Elevators Ltd install top of the range lifts with the state of the art technology, so there is nothing remotely dodgy or frightening about stepping into one. We regularly carry our lift modernisation and servicing, you can rest assure.

Don’t be afraid about getting into a lift on your own, just familiarise yourself with your surroundings and like we said. If in doubt, get off at a different level or press the emergency button and you’ll be put through to someone.
