The State of Wisconsin
requires public and/or employee conveyances (elevators, freights,
dumbwaiters, escalators and other
lift devices) to undergo an annual inspection in order to renew a
permit to operate.
At Wisconsin Elevator Inspection, Inc. we strive
to make the inspection process as easy for you as possible. When you
contract with us to do your inspections, we file a copy of the
agreement with the State and they promptly assign your inspections to
us. Then, when your current permit approaches its expiration date
we'll do the inspection. Expiration dates are identified by our
computer system which is in sync with the State of Wisconsin. We file
all of the paperwork for you and follow it through the process so that
your next permit arrives on time and hassle-free. We bill you
for the inspection and the State bills you for the permit. We'll come
each year to provide seamless, worry-free inspection service. You are
free to cancel, should you ever decide to do so.
Your obligation is to correct any violations
that we might find and notify us when that is done.
