Smith "The guys from Southeastern Elevator recently installed a custom residential elevator in my new waterfront home on Bogue Sound in Cape Carteret, NC. They were very organized and finished the job on time and on budget. Southeastern Elevator is a professionally run operation and first class in my book. I'd recommend them to anyone." Neil Weeks N.S.
