Where can I find a used elevator for sale for use in the Philipines?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread


I'm expanding our hotel 1 1/2 hours north of Manila and would like to buy a used elevator good for 5/6 stories.

Any help finding one, or where to search futher would be REAL appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Ron Keehn

come on mate

bite the bullet and buy a new one mate.....there not that expensive theses days and the reliability will be worth it. Besides all the modifications they will have to do to put it in will be a hassel....just my thoughts on the subject anyway! chino

My Dear chino, have you not learned your lessons about new installations yet?

Need I remind you of the reliability of a certain new installation in Clarence st ??

clarence st

come on mate....the reliability is excellent...as builders lifts they were superb...global controllers are 1 of the best i have seen by any company...it is or should i say was the miconic 10 (landing/car button system) that let us down. its now temporary (which we all no means permanent in the lift industry) fixed....besides parts are much easier to come by for new installations compared to old one's Chino

My dearest Chino, I must apolgise....of course parts are easily available for new installations....

But expertise is not.

Id, infinidum....

Used elevator

Ron: Unless you could find one in the Phillipines it would not be cost effective. Unless a building is being demolished most parts of installations are reused. By the time you paid for tear out and shipping there would be no savings and you would have bought a used elevator. Most used elevators are VERY used. Fred

the only thing dumb would be the person that bought them off you.....and before you get on my case yes i do know what a dumb waiter is.....the best way to get rid of them is pull them out and send them to the scrap metal yard.
