Dumbwaiter Lifts – Convenient, Reliable, Customizable

By technical definition, a dumbwaiter is a small freight elevator that is intended to carry objects rather than people. Dumbwaiter lifts have existed in homes for centuries and were primarily installed in the homes of the wealthiest families for servants to easily carry trays of food from one floor to another. Today, a dumbwaiter lift could help your family by being the extra hand you’ve always needed!

Inclinator’s Homewaiter® residential dumbwaiter is ideal for transporting groceries from garage to kitchen, laundry from bedrooms to the utility room, bottles and cases from/to a wine cellar, and hauling firewood from ground level to your living space. You’ll love the convenience and time-saving features!
