Our services



We Keep America Moving!


Maintenance contracts are designed to ensure that preventative maintenance (PM) is performed in order to keep your equipment in good operating condition. PM helps guarantee that your elevator safety devices are working properly, that the equipment never operates without the proper lubricants or adjustments causing unneeded major repairs, that the maximum operating life of the equipment is obtained, and that trouble calls are minimized. With a maintenance contract in place, you also ensure that you can get immediate response to any elevator malfunction.

Mid-American believes in charging reasonable prices for elevator maintenance, which are frequently 30-40% below the prices charged by the OEMs (Otis, Schindler, Thyssen and Kone) for contractual maintenance.  For charges outside the scope of the maintenance contract (vandalism, storm damage, major repairs not covered by the contract), our prices often are 50% below those charged by the OEMs.

Mid-American offers a full range of contracts that will cover almost any situation. Typically, preventative maintenance is performed monthly. However, daily, weekly, bimonthly and quarterly contracts are also available. We recommend our standard “Full Maintenance” agreement which includes PM as well as all straight time trouble calls and any required major repairs (cables, motors, etc.) on your elevators, all for one fixed monthly price. Mid-American mechanics are qualified to service and repair virtually all brands and types of elevators and escalators. This includes equipment from Otis, Westinghouse, Schindler, Montgomery, U.S., Haughton, Dover, F. S. Payne, Colley, Automatic, Kone and Armor. Our staff of in-house control engineers can diagnose and repair almost any problem on the latest computerized elevator control systems.

Mid-American has mechanics on call 24-hours a day, 365-days a year. All of our service mechanics are radio dispatched enabling them to respond quickly when problems arise. Our service teams have fully equipped vans with the tools and spare parts we need to complete your repair.

Mid-American maintains a modern computer system for scheduling our preventative maintenance and tracking service calls. We have the best Quality Assurance Program in the industry. Quarterly Quality Control inspections by our Customer Relations Department are conducted on every elevator we have under maintenance. Mid-American is focused on providing the highest level of safety and customer satisfaction.
