What Can Affect Your Dumbwaiter Lift Costs?

Gartec Dumb Waiter

A dumbwaiter lift costs a lot less than other types of service or goods lifts as they are not designed for carrying heavy loads from floor to floor. As residential dumbwaiters are meant primarily for transporting food, loads of laundry and other small, relatively lightweight items, there are lower costs involved. However, many things can influence the cost of a dumbwaiter lift.

What Affects Residential Dumbwaiter Costs?

The Gartec Dumbwaiter is an amazingly versatile home lift that can transform your quality of life. Whether you are a homeowner and want a solution that lets you use your current residence in more comfort or you are an architect and want to create an accessible home, this lift is ideal.

The following factors may influence the costs of your new dumbwaiter lift installation:

  1. Car size: A standard size stainless steel dumbwaiter is going to cost less than a larger design. We have standard models starting at 545 x 420 x 800mm and double models that will include two cars, so this is a crucial factor and can make costs vary widely.
  2. Stopping points: The greater the number of stopping points the more complex an installation will be and the more materials will be used. As a result, more stopping points always mean you will have a higher cost for your new dumbwaiter installation.
  3. Shaft sizes: There are so many types of houses in the UK, which means you may need to have a smaller or larger shaft or enclosure. The Gartec Dumbwaiter requires a shaft and enclosure, so the height of the shaft will make a big impact on your overall costs.
  4. Power supply and electrics: Depending on the above factors, you might need to have a special type of power supply or motor. As a result, you could easily end up paying a bit more for large car sizes with multiple stopping points across a large height shaft.

If you require food lifts capable of transporting goods that are a bit heavier, then a commercial dumbwaiter may be a better but costlier option. These are perfectly adaptable to private homes. We can talk about this option with you when you get in touch to discuss your dumbwaiter lift.
