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.

Preferred Elevator Partners with Matot

Preferred Elevator Partners with Matot

Matot has products that could help minimize product damage in a warehouse setting

We partner with the industry’s leaders regarding mobility services, including Matot. Matot manufactures dumbwaiters and material lifts, accommodating various size and weight requirements. Are you looking for a way to minimize product damage in your commercial establishment? Have you been searching for a way to minimize back and body pain when carrying groceries or suitcases? If so, a dumbwaiter can benefit both commercial and residential spaces. Today we will discuss a few of the many benefits of dumbwaiters and material lifts. We’ll also provide some history about Matot’s origin. 

The Benefits of Dumbwaiter Installation

When you have a dumbwaiter inside your business or home, it can save you a lot of time. Instead of carrying heavy objects up and down the stairs, you can transport them within seconds with a dumbwaiter. Your workers will have more time to complete other tasks, or homeowners can spend time doing the things they enjoy without risking back pain. The other benefits of dumbwaiters include:

  • Less Product Damage
  • Fewer Injuries
  • Dumbwaiters save space compared to lifts that transport people

The Advantages of Material Lifts

Material lifts ensure that your business is a well-oiled and efficient machine. When people have to lift and transport heavy objects, it can take a lot of time. This time factor could cause fewer products to ship out to customers. In warehousing, time is always of the essence. All your employees will have to do is push a button when you opt for material lift installation. Plus, forklifts and other lifting mechanisms require more maintenance. In a nutshell, here are three benefits of material lifts:

  • Efficiency
  • Less Noisy Than Other Lift Mechanisms
  • Can Lift Products to 14 Feet off the Ground!
