Service & Repair

Maintenance of your Electric Chain Hoist is essential: at a minimum, a LOLER Inspection is required every 12 months in order to comply with the latest Health & Safety Regulations.

Many insurance companies now offer free LOLER inspections, but they are literally just a visual inspection. Our service go beyond this - ECH offers preventative maintenance and actual servicing, restoration, and repair to all brands and models of electric chain hoists. 

Preventative maintenance aims to reduce any risks of downtime, ensure the highest safety standards by always replacing worn parts, before it's too late. Over time, preventative maintenance will actually save you money. FACT: why buy a hoist and not maintain it, then after a short time you send up replacing it. Buy a hoist and maintain it correctly, and as long as it's used within its parameters, life expectancy can be up to anything up to 50 years!
