Any Market for 1946 Freight Elevator Hardware? : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

I bought a 1946 warehouse with a working freight elevator. It will be replaced completely with a passenger elevator. Is there any market for the electric motor and related hardware? If so, where, and what info about the mechanics do I need to gather and post?

Yeah not a lot of value, actually there is value but not worth the removal time. Contact the independent elevator companies in your area and they may be willing to come and remove some of the useful parts, doubt you will get anything for them though.

Elevators are like cars,every year there were changes some of the parts match up to other elevators, most don't and at that age most have been removed or modernized.

Good luck John
