COVID-19 Notice

Preferred Elevator would like to assure our customers that we are taking all necessary steps to do our part in flattening the curve of COVID-19. We have developed a “No Family Contact” process for service, repairs and installations. Our Mechanic, who will be wearing a mask and gloves, will call you when we are at your front door and will discuss the issues or concerns you have with your unit. Our customer can then unlock the door, but there is no need to further greet the Mechanic or be present for the service, repair or installation. Please feel free to move to another part of the home while we are working. Final payment can be left for technician or can be done over the phone with our office.
We greatly appreciate your business during this time.

Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

Creative Ways For You to Use a Dumbwaiter in Your Home

Creative Ways For You to Use a Dumbwaiter in Your Home

Today, we’ll be showing you creative ways to utilize a dumbwaiter, and why you should think about getting one for your home.

There are many factors that go into home design. You want your house to look nice while promoting certain types of atmospheres, depending on which room you’re using at the time. Another part of home design to promote is functionality. As such, homeowners are always looking for new and inventive ways to improve the functionality that their homes offer. One way to give your home more utility is with a dumbwaiter. Today, we’ll be showing you creative ways to utilize a dumbwaiter, and why you should think about getting one for your home.

Transport Laundry More Easily

Many people’s laundry rooms are found in the basement, or on an upper level of the house. When your bedrooms aren’t on the same level as the laundry room, it becomes a lot of work to carry heavy loads of laundry from one floor of your house to another.

This burden is lifted off of your shoulders if you invest in a dumbwaiter. Dumbwaiters are great because they can take clean or dirty clothes between the different levels of your house, meaning you don’t have to carry those heavy loads on your own anymore.

Streamline Meal Prep

Perhaps your kitchen and dining rooms are on different floors of your home. In this situation, it becomes a chore to bring food between these different levels. Instead, you could be using a dumbwaiter, which can easily transport food wherever you need it to go. This way, you don’t have to carry plates, trays, and other pieces of dining ware up and down your house.
