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.

Reasons to Consider a Dumbwaiter Installation

Reasons to Consider a Dumbwaiter Installation

Read on to learn about the benefits of a home dumbwaiter installation.

If you’ve heard of dumbwaiters before, you probably know about the upsides they provide to establishments such as hotels and restaurants, but what about the advantages they can provide within your own home? Dumbwaiters have more utility in a residential setting than you may expect, and there are many reasons you should think about getting one installed today. Read on to learn about the benefits of a home dumbwaiter installation.

You Can Transport Heavy Items More Easily

Are you tired of taking large loads of laundry up and down the stairs? Perhaps you carry heavy bags of groceries between the different levels of your house. Carrying bulky items of any kind is a chore, especially when you need to use the stairs. By getting a dumbwaiter installation, you’ll no longer be burdened with this task. Taking heavy items to the different levels of your home will be as simple as a snap of your fingers.

Reduce the Likelihood of an Injury

Using a staircase comes with the risk of falling, especially when you have heavy items in your hands. There’s also the chance that you could strain your back whenever you carry bulky items up your staircase. Getting a dumbwaiter installation will make it less likely for you to get injured since you won’t have heavy items weighing you down as you try to make your way up and down the stairs.

Cleaning Becomes Easier

No one wants to be bothered with house cleaning, but if you get a dumbwaiter installation, you can at least make cleaning an easier chore. This is because you can move cleaning items up and down your stairs with greater ease. Not only is this more convenient, but you also reduce the likelihood of spilling these cleaning materials.
