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.

Find a Reliable Dumbwaiter Repair Company

Dumbwaiters are complicated pieces of machinery, and it can be confusing trying to figure out how to fix a problem, even if you know what the problem is. To ensure your dumbwaiter is repaired successfully, you should contact a dumbwaiter repair company. They’ll know everything that needs to be done to restore your dumbwaiter to optimal condition.

Stay on Top of Maintenance Procedures

Even when all repairs are done, there are still additional steps you need to take so that your dumbwaiter stays functional.
