VIP Club San Miguel: "The Smart Fit"


July 29, 2015

This VIP Club Newsflash is being sponsored by MH Eleva Residential Elevators here in San Miguel. MH designs, fabricates, installs and services dumbwaiter type elevators here in San Miguel.

Our elevators comply with all US safety standard. * We are located here in San Miguel, so if the elevator need repair we can be there the same day. * We have 24-hour emergency service. * We do service every 12 months; the first service after 3 months is free. * We have our own building crew so we can retrofit elevators to existing houses. * We have our own architect and design crew in case you want help with a custom design. * Our system does not require a “machine room,” so no need to take up extra space in the house with machinery. * We make a lot of the parts for our elevators right here in San Miguel and can therefore keep the cost down. * We make export parts for elevators to USA, which attests to the quality of our work. webpage:,
