When you’re ready, we’ll take you higher

For over 30 years, Lift Business Advisors has helped independent elevator companies navigate the selling process with confidence and peace of mind.

Bringing Clarity
to the Selling process

Selling your elevator business is something few owners are prepared for and just about none look forward to. Ask anybody who’s been through it and they’ll tell you they wished they had known from the beginning what they learned throughout the process. That’s where we come in.

We’ve spent the past 30 years gaining a deep understanding of the elevator industry—its buyers, sellers, and intricacies—in order to pass that knowledge and experience on to independent owners and industry suppliers.

Since 1998, our expertise has led to closing transactions, both buy-side and sell-side, for more than 80 elevator industry businesses totaling over $350,000,000 in total purchase price.

Thinking about selling?

There are hard lessons learned in the process of selling your independent elevator business. I would know. 

For years, I worked for one of the biggest buyers in the industry, gaining valuable insight into the buy-side of these deals. Now, I take everything my team and I have learned and pass it onto you – that’s over 70 years of combined experience in the elevator industry.

Simply put, working with us means you learn those hard those lessons on day one without having to lose anything at all. 

Because of the extensive amount of time and effort we commit to each seller relationship, we work only on the basis of exclusive representation. We spend as much time as necessary to fully understand what you, the seller, want from the sale. Then, we find the best steps to take that will get you the most value out of the hard work you’ve put into your company.
