Residential Dumbwaiter Permits


It is up to you to check your local codes to determine if you are allowed to install a dumbwaiter yourself or if you are required by local codes to use a licensed company to do the installation.

We know that self-installation or installation by non-licensed company is not allowed in the following states: Georgia, Alabama, Michigan, Washington and Oregon.

Compliance with codes is very important to us and so we will not ship stairlifts or dumbwaiters to these states in respect of local codes.

Typically your State Department of Labor may have an Elevator division that will be able to tell you about permits for residential dumbwaiter applications. The division may be under Safety Engineering.

In the Atlanta and North Georgia areas, we will be happy to install a Summit Dumbwaiter for you including the required $250 state permit, the state elevator inspection, sales tax, freight and a 1 year labor warranty.
