Default Getting pipe up elevators...

For those of you that have done work in occupied, multiple story buildings have you ever tried to find a way to keep from having to load each pipe on and off the elevators individually?

I have yet to see someone find a way yet. The closest is getting it to the elevator but it never fails that it has to be put on individually. I've been searching hand trucks or trying to think of ways to make a convertible one work but it hasn't happened yet.

I thought about seeing if one of the following would work.

Naturally it has to be done in 10' lengths and practically only good for 2" and down. Anything above 2" is just gonna have to be done individually.

You can do 4 or 5 sticks of 4" cast with it, if you're brave.

Yeah, we always steal them from the sparkys. If you do renos, specially hospitals they are great cause they are easy to cover.

only if the elevator is long enough to fit 10' lengths which i have yet to see. Nor will they put the pipe at a high enough angle to remove the need to load them individually.
