About Us

Overseeing Safety

Overlord Services LLC was created in 2011 with the sole intent of striving to safeguard the transit of private individuals, the public, or materials on elevators, escalators, stair and wheelchair lifts, dumb waiters, moving walkways, material and man lifts, and conveyors—all manner of devices that move people and things. There is a constant need for inspection of these devices at the time of installation, during their lifetime of use, or after an accident. The vision of Charlie Stainback—a NAESA internationally certified, Virginia state certified, and insured inspector—was to offer clients a higher-standard service, providing expert inspection procedures performed in a timely manner at a very reasonable cost. To that end, Overlord Services came into being.

Charlie has committed himself to being meticulous and thorough in each and every one of his inspections, including elevator maintenance contracts. He believes that insightful pre-inspection consultation can eliminate many problems before a device is fully installed. With many years of experience, his knowledge directly benefits everyone, whether you install, own, ride, or operate a moving device. In addition to his work in the field, Charlie was a founding member of the Virginia Elevator Safety Association (VAESA), and assists in developing and teaching crucial safety procedures to installers and maintenance mechanics and other inspectors. As an added bonus, he is also a Master Electrician and an Electrical Inspector. Charlie’s credentials make him uniquely qualified to take any inspection to a new level—by being able to assess the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing aspects of the device. The depth and breadth of his inspections are far beyond what would be considered typical, an indication of the pride he takes in his work.

Overlord Services LLC is small company, on purpose, because 'small' works in your favor. Inspections or consultations can be undertaken with minimal delay, and Charlie is able to be painstaking in his assessments. With emphasis on attention to detail, his aim is to examine conveyances to identify issues that potentially threaten the safety of users or maintenance mechanics.

Why Overlord? Operation Overlord was the code-name given to the Allied invasion of France scheduled for June 1944. This Allied operation launched the successful invasion of German-occupied western Europe during World War II. The operation commenced on 6 June 1944 with the Normandy landings (commonly known as D-Day). A 1,200-plane airborne assault preceded an amphibious assault involving more than 5,000 vessels. Nearly 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel on 6 June, and more than three million Allied troops were in France by the end of August. German forces retreated across the Seine on 30 August 1944, marking the close of Operation Overlord. Charlie’s father, as a member of the 101st Airborne Division, parachuted near Sainte-Mère-Église during the airborne assault, and ultimately survived the War with honors. The company name was chosen in gratitude to all who contributed to that momentous operation for freedom.

Overlord Services thanks all active military personnel, veterans, and serving civilians for their sacrifices.
