While some consider the importance of the cab work within their mod minuet, most understand that when it comes to the perception of the final product the cab is one of the most important items. As a managing agent, or most importantly as an elevator contractor, many sub-contracting decisions need to be made on a mod. From whom to use for your control fixtures, to who’s traveling cable should be used to what cab company will install or refurbish an existing cab.
Many, through the years have assembled a competent team of vendors, on which they rely on. While most contractors struggle on every modernization to get what is expected out of their subs, especially their selected cab companies. While some consider the importance of the cab work within their mod minuet, most understand that when it comes to the perception of the final product the cab is one of the most important items. It is easy to see why, although elevator component installation may be the foundation, important as it is, it’s not the main thing people and other personnel will be interacting with. Its nice to have the latest elevator to travel at great speeds and ensuring safety and security at all times, but equally important is having a good elevator interior design and having it installed by a quality elevator cab company. This component is what the end paying customer sees, and for the most part judge the modernization installation on. If the cab components/installation are not installed with professionalism, or with a high level of quality, the end customer will immediately assume that the remaining components were installed in the same manner by YOU. Not only will this probably lower the customers confidence in your abilities for potential future work, but in most cases it will delay the all important FINAL payment.
It is imperative the when selecting an elevator cab company for the next modernization a managing agent or elevator contractor not only choose based on numbers, but see if the vendor is competent, will deliver on time, stand by their product and will provide a quality product time and time again. As unfair as it may be, the elevator cab represents the buildings appearance and image as much as it represents yours. So choose wisely on your next modernization project, when selecting a cab company for your team of vendors.
