Florida Residential Elevator Customer Feedback

"I am reaching out today to commend your company on the successful design and installation of our residential elevator. We were impressed with the excellent communication during all phases.

During the elevator install, both Matthew and Jon were very hard-working, timely and neat. Great care was taken to protect our floors, and to respect our home. We noted Jon’s problem-solving approaches to various unexpected situations, or bumps in the road. They are very polite hard working young men — and did a stellar job of representing your company.

Kudos to all involved! We will recommend Southeast Elevator to our neighbors!"

Lynda and Ken Root, Florida

"I had a very good experience with them. My contractor skipped town on us and they helped me out immensely. Office staff and the installers were wonderful!"

Thomas Banks, Florida

I just wanted to take a quick minute to let you know that Chris and I have really enjoyed working with your team since we brought you on board. We appreciate the open communication, knowledge, and efficiency in the field. This is something that we have truly lacked in the past with elevators and we are so happy to have started a relationship with your company.

Keep up the good work and we look forward to continuing to work together on upcoming jobs!
