LIFT MATES the Lift Industry Specialists


We are the Lift Industry Experts at Guiding Lift Employers when Taking On and Training New & Better Quality Lift Mates QUICK & EASY under our Government Funded Work Contract. This means a MASSIVE REDUCTION IN COSTS, Saving You TIME, EFFORT & MONEY...!

There are so many problems when searching for new lift staff from getting the right people to start with to making sure they are safe to work and are lift engineer safe registered. Our partnership model means that WE DON'T WORK ALONE. We have support from PEW Electrical Distributors, Apex Lifts, Lester Controls and Global Lift Equipment who have provided lift equipment, training, site visits, teaching/learning and/or support free of charge.

We've taken the time to filter out bad applicants from the very beginning. Employing the WRONG PEOPLE will end up Costing You Money, Eating into your Profits and Wasting Your Time that you can’t get back again. As we train them ourselves we will only ever use new people that have completed and passed our new lift engineer training course. Our tried & tested training and employability course weeds out the TYRE KICKERS who will just 'give it a go' and the TIME WASTERS who do nothing but moan and 'look at their watch'.

We also offer to extend our training with options for you to include the LEIA lift industry standard EOR202N ‘Basic Safety Course’. In a nutshell, we REDUCE PROBLEMS at source, we select the RIGHT LIFT MATE to join your company and we support them to become a QUALIFIED LIFT ENGINEER of the future.
