Hi There With todays labor rates and Attorneys lurking around every corner installing used complete elevators in the US is not praticle. But in other countries it is. I have torn out motion controlers and generators and resold them, reinstalled them with motions support and passed all inspections. Once I took out a complete elevtor and loaded it into a container box and shipped it to the phillipines, (my favorite country outside the US) With a new traction machine costing $6000 and up, used equip for another country this might be attractive. The machine,car sling, safety plank, governor,door operator,doors and if it is a simple relay controler might be able to be reused. The key is to have a demo contractor to remove the equipment without a torch and a trucking co set up for this and a job close to the border is helpful also. Remember a well built and designed relay controler even used will outlast any solid state controler. There are plenty still running after 100 years. I have seen many jobs after a mod have more calls than before the mod. Jim
