Running a hotel comes with all kinds of responsibilities. From making sure the guests are happy, to raising awareness of your establishment, a lot of hard work has to go into turning your hotel into a success. Of course, we imagine you can handle the pressure much better than Basil Fawlty. At least, we’d hope so.

Chief among these responsibilities is making sure that the facilities are up to scratch and that the hotel is able to operate as efficiently as possible. Well, this is probably what’s led you to this blog all about dumbwaiters, because these small service lifts are becoming absolutely essential in the modern hotel industry.

But what are the advantages of installing a dumbwaiter?

Improve Hotel Efficiency

In short, dumbwaiters are used to transport goods from one floor to another- but you probably already knew that.

What you might not have realised, however, is just how far these small lifts can go towards improving the efficiency of your hotel. Whether you’re shifting new sheets for the cleaners, food to the restaurant or luggage to the rooms, dumbwaiters offer a convenient, quick solution, allowing your establishment to run more efficiently.

Instead of lugging items up and down stairs, your hotel can now save time by shuttling items between floors with one of our excellent service lifts.

Keeping Staff (And Guests) Safe

Of course, this constant “lugging” could also have an adverse effect on your staff, since even the sprightliest employee could develop back pain before too long. Dumbwaiters reduce the need for carrying heavy items around the hotel; which not only helps to keep staff happier in their jobs, but also ensures they’re always safe.

Additionally, this can also make life easier for your guests, since food is much less likely to become contaminated when being transported in a dumbwaiter. It’s incredibly unlikely that food contamination would ever be an issue, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

It’s A Long-Term Investment

Once you’ve got a dumbwaiter, it will be almost impossible to imagine life without it; it’s just a matter of making that initial investment to get one installed.

Because that’s exactly what a dumbwaiter is: an investment. Renowned for their durability and long-life, a new dumbwaiter will be a staple of your hotel for years to come, while its small size ensures it won’t impact any possible changes to the hotel in that time. In fact, you could even go for a bespoke service lift to make sure you’re getting exactly what you need.
