Earlier in the spring we did a jack replacement job for Ralph Robinson Funeral Home in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. I would like to share the letter we received from Adam Robinson, President of Ralph Robinson and Son.

To Whom It May Concern:

Please accept this letter as my unqualified recommendation for Arkansas Elevator LLC.

We spoke with J.J. Harrington last year regarding the required replacement of the existing jack with a 2000 Code compliant jack with sealed cylinder protection for the freight elevator in our building. We operate a funeral home in Pine Bluff and required major work hour flexibility to accomodate our need to continue to respectfully meet the needs of our client families during the period of work. Arkansas Elevator exceeded our expectations in meeting our special needs.

The jack replacement was completed in an expedious and careful manner. The gentlemen who worked in our building were thoughtful, thorough, competent, and flexible. We were pleased with their work.

Our jack replacement was bid out to several Arkansas vendors. Arkansas Elevator submitted the most reasonable bid.


Adam B. Robinson, Jr.

I would like to share a few letters from our customers.


July 29, 2009


To Whom It May Concern:


Being an old facility, there is a problem finding companies that are able to work on our elevators. Since the year of 2008, we have discovered  that we are required to upgrade our elevators. I could not find a company to tell me what I would need to do to upgrade. I was working with two companies trying to get a price for the upgrade.

On July 5, 2009, I had a jack blow its seals. The company that was working on teh elevator was not able to complete the repair work in a timely manner. OUr elevator was inoperable for four days.

I called Arkansas Elevator and met with JC the same day. He gave me a price for the repair and the order the new seal. While he was here he installed new stop switches. He called the inspector to find out exactly what needed to be done for the required upgrade and was able to save us almost $100,000.00 He also discovered that we had not completed a load test and scheduled  it the same day.

The work he has done for Lions World Service for the Blind has been outstanding and I would recommend him to any company.

Maintenance is the most important part of the life of an elevator. If you don't have someone doing service on your elevator, you might want to explore those options. In these tough economical times it is important to manage your money wisely. I don't know of a wiser choice than maintenance. If you go back and look at how much you spend on elevator repair in a year's time you are probably waisting money. We have a maintenance control program that is 2nd to none that is specific to your elevator. We can design an effictive program to fit your budget and fit your elevator service needs.
