How much weight can a dumbwaiter hold? What size packages can it accommodate?
A dumbwaiter can carry up to 200 pounds and accommodate packages up to 30 inches high, depending on the model selected.

How much space do you need for a dumbwaiter?
A dumbwaiter requires a minimum of three feet wide and three feet deep for the shaftway.

How far can a dumbwaiter travel?
A dumbwaiter can transport items up to 50 feet.

Where is a dumbwaiter typically installed?
Frequently, a dumbwaiter is installed between the garage (lower level) and the kitchen (above) - but there are several installation options. To determine where a dumbwaiter can be added, we consider: available space (shaftway), function (where's it needed) and design (how it will look where it's placed).

How do I know if a dumbwaiter serves my needs or if a home elevator is a better option?
