Dumbwaiters are essentially small cargo elevators designed to lift groceries, laundry, firewood, or other items from floor to floor in a multi-level home. Why install a dumbwaiter? The number one reason is safety. If you routinely carry heavy loads from floor to floor of your home or business, then you run a serious risk of injuring yourself or others. Dumbwaiters are convenient, time saving devices that will take the danger and hassle out of transporting heavy loads.  Installing a dumbwaiter can also add value to your home.
