Initial Meet and Greet| On-Site Visit
The process of acquiring insurance coverage on elevators and escalators is more complicated than typical liability policies. It is imperative that you choose a professional that can accurately audit and determine the condition of your vertical transportation equipment, allowing you access to the best insurance policies for your property.
This is where Inspections NW excels. We perform thorough, comprehensive elevator audits and compile a meticulous and detailed report, giving you the best picture of your elevator’s condition, safety, functionality, and any potential risk factors.
Contract Compliance and MCP (Maintenance Control Program) Review
We are experts when it comes to assessing the condition and maintenance plan for your elevator when compared with existing service contracts. Your elevator equipment will be analyzed, and existing service contracts will be reviewed. We then craft a fully detailed report and make recommendations based on our findings, ensuring that your contract meets industry standards, to help you decide on current market pricing, and provides for the necessary level of maintenance to help your equipment meet its average life expectancy.
