The Advantages of Having a Dumbwaiter for Your Business

Last updated 3 years ago

When most business owners think about items that they need in order to run their company smoothly, a dumbwaiter doesn’t generally jump immediately to mind. But dumbwaiters—small freight elevators used to transport objects from one floor to another—can be useful to virtually any business, including hotels, restaurants, and medical clinics. Read on to learn about the benefits of having a dumbwaiter installed in your place of business:

Efficient and dependable. The dumbwaiter has come a long way since its invention in the late eighteenth century, when it was a simple set of shelves operated by a rope and pulley. Today’s electric-powered dumbwaiters are sleek, fast, and reliable. They are available in a variety of styles, from stainless steel to wood, and they can transport loads ranging from 100 to 500 lbs.

Quick transportation of documents. Delivering important paperwork from one department to the next is an essential daily routine for many businesses, but doing it manually can be cumbersome. In addition, much of this paperwork may contain sensitive information that needs to be kept secure. A dumbwaiter allows you to transport any and all documents safely and discreetly while freeing up employee time for other tasks.

Faster delivery of food. For restaurants, dumbwaiters can make the task of transporting food from the kitchen to the table faster and more proficient, particularly when dealing with large parties. When your company orders lunch, you can use a dumbwaiter to transport the food to different offices and departments quickly so that it stays hot.
