New Installation

Suburban Elevator installs all types of elevators, from hydraulic, traction to machine room less applications.  Whatever your requirements are, we can provide a solution.  Being an independent elevator company allows us to purchase from many suppliers and manufacturers, which allows the customer more variety and can provide them with the solution they need.

Our construction department will be there through all phases of the installation, from designing your elevator to finalizing the inspection.  Our team will be there to make sure your elevator is delivered on time and smoothly turned over.  We pride ourselves on having superior customer service, and we are always available should any questions arise.

Suburban installs non-proprietary equipment.  That means that your elevator is free from any proprietary software, forcing you to stay with a particular company.  We want you to stay with us after the install because you want to, not because you have to.

The Best Elevator Company in Chicago, IL

elevator company near me

The elevator's doors, shaft, control panel, and vehicle all interact with one another and with the building's other safety, electrical, and mechanical systems. At Suburban Elevator, we've established a comprehensive method for evaluating properties, developing elevator modernization project plans, and comprehensive scope of work. Using this tried-and-true method and the knowledge of our employees, we've assisted Chicago-area customers in refining their outdated, yet vital elevator upgrade needs. Our elevator modernization involves replacing older, inefficient components and controls with newer, more reliable ones. It is often misunderstood as an elevator replacement, the cost of which is much higher since it requires the installation of a new car. When we update your elevator, we pay more attention to how it functions than how it looks. Elevator modernization occurs on many levels. The extent to which you should update your system depends on its present state and your specific requirements as the owner. Bringing an elevator up to date is a challenging undertaking. Our elevator technicians follow all applicable standards and guidelines during construction to guarantee that the desired results are realized and that customer satisfaction is maintained. When the elevator modernization project is complete, we conduct an evaluation and hand over all relevant paperwork to ensure that you and your team have all the information you need.
