We are Britannia Quay Ltd. a development on the Marina in Preston. There are 204 apartments and 50 houses on the development which started in 1998 and was completed in 2001. The main building is Trafalgar Wharf with an East and West wing. This building has 100 apartments and five levels, basement, ground and 3 floors above. The East and West wings are served by two lifts in a central atrium.
We appointed H Breakell and Co. (Blackburn Ltd.) as our lift maintenance engineers in 2012 and since their appointment have given complete satisfaction. From day one they solved technical issues deemed impossible by the previous contractors and have serviced the lifts on time with a regular engineer familiar with our situation and who has been an excellent ambassador for the company. They recently carried out a major overhaul of both lifts and with the minimum of disturbance, completed the job on time. Prior to this work being carried out we received a health and safety brief with scope of works giving us every confidence in their work. The regular engineer having completed the above work handed over a silver neck chain found in the base of the lift shaft.
I would have no hesitation in recommending H Breakell and Co. to anyone looking for a competent reliable lift engineer.
Chairman Britannia Quay Ltd.
I would just like to thank you and your team of engineers at Breakell Lifts for the excellent job you did on the refurbishment of my lift at the Blenheim Mount Hotel, Blackpool.
Also for the good standard of service during callouts and periodic service during the year. Your prices are competitive, so once again a big thank you to all at Breakell Lifts
Yours N Davies

“Breakell lifts have recently installed a lift for me achieving programme dates above and beyond my expectations due to us being behind programme they agreed to work double shifts etc to ensure we met our completion date including commissioning.”

“Having recently had major problems with our lift we contacted Breakell Lifts for advice and repair. Their knowledge and customer service was superb and they went above and beyond to help resulting in our lift working perfectly again”.

“Following my initial call to your helpful reception staff an engineer was on site within hours to investigate a reported problem with our passenger lift. Furthermore, not only was the engineer most friendly and extremely knowledgeable, he also took time to explain his actions in identifying the described fault to ensure our complete satisfaction with the work.”
Centre Manager – West Lancashire Investment Centre
“As I am retiring and leaving the lift industry after a total of 44 years I feel it only right to express my gratitude to Breakell Lifts…. They have won, by means of competitive tender, our last 3 projects for removing existing lifts and replacing with new, to our site specific specifications and demands, whilst still working with our main contractor and often in fully occupied buildings. Finally they have recently won a contract for our own office and I had no hesitation whatsoever in dealing with this company for this project. The chairperson of our organisation had a ride in one of the lifts during a site visit nearly 2 months before the expected handover.
If I ever return to the lift industry I would not hesitate to use this company again.”
Lift Manager (Retired) for Incommunities
“Always had excellent service, good knowledge on all types of lifts situated across our 26 acre site and Breakell’s are our preferred maintenance contractor. I’ve not got a bad word to say against them in all the years that we have used them. They have always provided an excellent service.”
