Let dumbwaiters do the heavy lifting in your home.

  • Do you heat your home with wood and have to carry wood up or downstairs?
  • Do you park in a garage located under your home and have to carry groceries up a flight of stairs?
  • Do you lug heavy baskets of laundry to the laundry room in your basement or to second floor bedrooms

Do you need to move materials up and down multiple floors? If you answered yes to any of the above, then a dumbwaiter might be just the back- saving device you need! Dumbwaiters are small freight elevators (or lifts) that connect two floors and are designed to carry materials (not people or animals). In residential settings, they are used to transport groceries, firewood, and laundry. Since dumbwaiters are really just mini elevators, they are designed with many of the same safety features as a regular passenger elevator. And just because they don't transport people, doesn't mean people don't get hurt using them. That's why they need to be installed and serviced by a licensed elevator professional.

Today's homeowner wants to maximize the investment in their homes by installing products that enhance convenience, elegance, and marketability. With the increasing popularity of multi-level homes, the dumbwaiter of yesteryear is in demand again today. Now modern homeowners can take advantage of an amenity used primarily in large estate houses. Vastly improved over those rope-and-pulley contraptions of years ago, today's dumb-waiters offer affordable, efficient, quiet, and reliable convenience, and they add a unique selling point for new or remodeled homes.
