Elevator contractors will find that a modular elevator is the fastest and easiest elevator they will ever install.
There are no rails to hang, cab to assemble, or unprotected heights to dangle from. We’ve done all the assembly work.
"We're going to sell the s**t out of these modulars."

Detailed steps to guide elevator contractors through the installation process.
Elevator contractors should check for all the components needed for set-up on the provided checklist and notify the Phoenix Team immediately if anything is missing. It is crucial that you inspect each arriving component of the elevator. There is a packing list that comes with every elevator, and it will also be emailed to you before the elevator's arrival. It is your responsibility to make sure everything has arrived as promised. If something is missing, report it immediately to the Phoenix Team onsite. If the Phoenix Team is not available, contact our project coordinator immediately. Most components are strapped in the area where they are needed. If a modular machine room is ordered, much of the miscellaneous equipment will be found there. If there is no modular machine room, this equipment can be found in the pit or palletized. You are in charge of this equipment once it arrives on site, so we encourage you to leave it in the hoistway until needed.
The truck will arrive with:
- The modular elevator hoistway with a pre-installed elevator. If a taller hoistway is part of the project, multiple towers will arrive as scheduled.
- The modular machine room (if ordered) or a pallet with the tank and controller strapped to it
Setting the Hoistway
Option B: The traveling cable and hoistway cable are terminated in a junction box at the bottom of the hoistway. Cut the cables to the precise length you need and wire them between the terminal box and the controller. **Extra lengths of cable are supplied upon request from the installer. If no cable lengths are requested, we will place a junction box at the same floor the machine room is on and you will be responsible for everything after, including trough, cable, etc.With an adjacent modular machine room, all gutter connections are precut and supplied. With a remote modular machine room or a site-built machine room, you supply the gutter and conduit from the hoistway to the controller, controller to power unit, and controller to disconnects.
