Lift Modernisation and Refurbishment

Why do companies generally recommend replacing older lifts with inferior ‘new lift’ packages rather than prolonging their working life?

Refurbishment to the highest standard

This is simply because a lift requires the specialist knowledge and skills that are being lost to the trade in this era of mass production. Consideration would also need to be given to adjustments made to either the existing lift shaft or the fabric of the building. This would undoubtedly incur further expenses from other trades such as architects, builders and electricians.
