Residential Dumbwaiters from ACCESS Elevator serving Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana, and Surrounding Areas of Chicago, Roselle, IL, Madison, Appleton, Wausau, and Milwaukee, WI

Give yourself and your loved ones the gift of safety with a residential dumbwaiter. One fifth of all falls will result in serious injury and most falls happen in the home. Having the reliable use of a dumbwaiter to carry laundry, packages, groceries and more can cut down on impairments and ensure additional safety in the home.

Carrying items up and down stairs can be hazardous in multiple ways beyond falls. Stability can be compromised with vision obstruction and off-balance weighted items. Heavy items can cause back strains. Sudden slips can stress joints and muscles.
