Frequently Asked Questions


How often does my elevator need to be inspected?   

The State of Wisconsin requires annual inspections, after which a 1-year permit to operate for code-compliant units is issued. If a serious safety violation is found during an inspection, a billable re-inspection might be required to verify that the violation has been corrected. In the case of a minor violation, sending written notice of correction may suffice. Some elevator owners choose to have an additional inspection done for insurance or managerial purposes (not required by the State of Wisconsin). On some units, a Hydro Pressure Test, Cat 1 or Cat 5 Test could be applicable.


Who will do my inspections?

You have the right to use any qualified inspection service. If you don't exercise your right to do so, a State subcontracted inspection will be performed by default... on their terms.

Wisconsin Elevator Inspection, Inc. is a user-friendly private inspection business. We work for YOU. Utilizing us for your inspection is as simple as letting us know. We'll take care of the rest. And you are always free to cancel at any time.


What is QEI?

QEI stands for Qualified Elevator Inspector. Your Wisconsin Elevator Inspection, Inc. inspector is  QEI certified through the National Association of Elevator Safety Authorities International under the authority of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.


What if Iím cited for an elevator violation?

Wisconsin Elevator Inspection, Inc. is your friend. If we find a violation, it is to your benefit so that you may correct the problem for the safety of all who use your elevator. If a serious safety violation is found, a billable re-inspection may be necessary to verify that the problem has been corrected before a new permit to operate is issued. For minor violations, a letter stating that the problem has been corrected may suffice.


Why doesnít my maintenance company do my annual inspection?

Inspection companies do not perform maintenance or service tasks. Maintenance/service  companies do not perform annual inspections. That would be a conflict of interest.


Who do I call for repairs?

Call your elevatorís service company if you have one. That information may be located on a placard in your elevator or service room. For your benefit, we have provided names and phone numbers of service companies listed with the State of Wisconsin on our Resources page.
