"I completely trust his company & team"


Robert has been servicing my buildings for the last 28 years. I completely trust his company & team. They have continuously kept my elevators running and up to date on all inspections. If there are extra service calls required-Robert is quick to come out and get the elevator up and running.

Ive recommended Northern Elevator to other landlords, who in return have had good experiences as well.

"Their performance continues to be exemplary"


Northern Elevator recently completed the modernization of our elevators in our 8-story residential apartment building. Their employees are very competent, professional and courteous.

In the past we have used the bigger elevator companies to work on and maintain our elevators; and have on many occasions been dissatisfied with their service in terms of promptness, price, and competency.

It’s been over two years now and their performance continues to be exemplary. If you need any type of elevator work for your property, I would recommend Northern Elevator. They are very good and very honest.
