“Welcome to Elevator One. We have chosen to be a different kind of elevator company, one which provides excellence throughout our organization. We have chosen to live by 3 core values: Integrity, Service, and Quality, and these words are more than a poster hanging in our office; each week we share stories of how these core values are being lived out by our team. I am very proud that we are a top TSSA elevator contractor in Ontario, and that we were nominated for “Best Contractor in Canada”. I am most pleased, however, by the comments we continually receive from our satisfied customers, as attested by our 4.9/5.0 Google Review Score and Comments. I hope you decide to give Elevator One a try. I am sure you won’t be disappointed.”

Elevator One has been a delight to work with. Quick to respond to our needs, brings creative approaches to resolve issues experienced, and dedicated to getting issues fixed.

Elevator One is a fantastic partner to have working with us! Having them provide preventative maintenance and services to our long term care homes and retirement communities for just under a year now, has already proven to be a great decision. They provide safe and quality service for the seniors in which we care for, and always ensure we are their top priority!!

Have been using Elevator 1 for New installs, Preventative Maintenance and Elevator Modernization for 8 years and never had an issue. Their response times are great, their staff is very knowledgeable and their paperwork is excellent. Highly recommended.
