Can Elevate AV use any of our existing equipment or does everything need to be replaced?
We understand the last thing you want to hear is that all your current equipment must be replaced. We can, in most cases, fully integrate your existing components with newer equipment as long as that equipment will not compromise the integrity and performance of the system. Ultimately our goal is to meet your needs and budget and provide you with the information to make the best decision possible.
Does Elevate AV allow customer labor on a project?
Absolutely. The statement, “We want our customers to be part of the team” is never more true than in this situation. If you have skilled and willing people that would like to help with the install of a new system, your team can fall right in with our staff to reduce labor costs. While we do provide this option, we reserve the right to handle certain aspects such as termination of connectors and initial equipment setup. This not only protects you as the end user, it allows Elevate AV to provide warranties on the workmanship of its installed systems.
Does Elevate AV only provide sound and lighting services to regional clients?
Elevate AV has the capability to provide services anywhere in the United States – or the world for that matter. We have worked on projects to date from the East coast to New Mexico and locations outside the US. We offer very competitive pricing even on projects seemingly “too far” for other companies.
