Your Elevator and Escalator Partner

If it concerns vertical transportation equipment chances are we can do it and have done it before. We look forward to being your elevator and escalator partner for life.

Elevator and Escalator Services

Key & Phone Retrieval Service

We are on call 24 hours a day for pit retrieval. There is an empty space in between the hoistway and car doors that leads to elevator pit that keys, phones and wallets fall into quite often. Best practice is to keep these items safely stowed away but we are all in a hurry and sometimes this happens. We know these items are important and we are available to assist.

Maintenance Services

We offer three tiers of maintenance services to keep your equipment efficient and protect your investment. We provide monthly maintenance visits on all service agreements. Custom maintenance plans are available. 

Residential Elevator Service

There are many private residences in Houston and the surrounding area that have home elevators. These elevators operate just like commercial elevators and need on-going preventative maintenance to keep them operating consistently, and protect your investment. Our mechanics are tidy, polite and will never leave a mess in your home.

Adjuster Service

The Houston market has taught this team nearly everything about elevators and escalators. Elevator adjusters are the brightest minds in the trade and we have a deep bench of BIG-brand experienced adjusters who have retired, love a challenge and have played enough golf already. When you have exhausted all your efforts with your current provider, call Vertical Transportation Services. We have some of the sharpest in the industry only a phone call away to ease your mind & help resolve your Vertical Transportation challenge.

Elevator and Escalator Modernization

We provide a FREE site survey of your elevator and escalator systems. Our modernization pricing estimate may also include value-engineered alternatives to help maximize your investment by retaining portions of your system that still have useful life to your building. We offer turn-key modernization solutions to include the code-required electrical, fire and mechanical building changes needed to meet current codes and pass final acceptance inspections through the city of Houston or TDLR.

Elevator & Escalator Repair

We offer a full range of repair services on items such as Door Operators, Power Units, Traveling Cables, Traction Machines and troubleshooting for units out of service. We would be delighted to provide a proposal with pricing and a repair timetable, free of charge. We will keep you informed throughout our process. Communication with our customers is a vital cornerstone to our continued success. We will beat all competitor pricing.

Maintenance Audits

We provide maintenance audits for building owners and managers to verify they are getting what they pay for from their elevator maintenance service provider. We inspect the building elevator system from the top of the hoist-way to the pit, including the machine room, and document with photos.  Afterwards provide a full report with infractions and compliance recommendations, including the smallest details such as the mechanic signing in/out at your building during each visit, and provide a follow-up report to document infractions that have been corrected. Vertical Transportation Services is your private detective to protect your investment.

Complete Decommissioning

Sometimes clients will want to reclaim their valuable tenant space by removing equipment that no longer has a usefulness to the building. It feels like the removal of an old friend, but we offer the full turn-key service to completely remove the equipment, street permits and disposal. We can also provide the service at night or on the weekends to minimize tenant disruption.

Pit Cleaning and Disposal

We get a lot of rain in Houston and sometimes water will get into the elevator pits causing damage to elevator components and bad smells. Vertical Transportation Services provides full cleaning, sealing, painting and OSHA-compliant disposal of the waste. Oil and Water mixtures cannot be pumped into the city sewer system and provide compliant service to our clients. If any repair is needed, we will provide a quote as well as work alongside your insurance company to communicate on your behalf.

Annual Elevator & Escalator Inspections

Every elevator and escalator open to the public is required to have an annual inspection. Our full maintenance agreement includes the mechanic for this exam but we also offer this service to new customers. We coordinate the whole process from the inspector to the mechanic leaving only the permit fee to be paid by the building to the city or state. Working with Vertical Transportation Services is easy and we love our customers.

Elevator Products

Access Control Card Reader Systems

We work alongside your card reader vendor to complete the connection and enable the card reader system to operate with the elevator. We specialize in great communication with your vendors because the project is important to you and therefore to us as well.

Cladding & Re-Cladding

Metal surfaces get worn and outdated over time. Vertical Transportation Services offers a full range of cladding to modernize metal appearances and polishing when re-cladding is not necessary. There are many great choices to beautify your metal with improved technology at our disposal.
