Buying Guide

Is my staircase able to have a stairlift?

The short answer is almost certainly yes! Whether your stairs are straight, curved, spiral or anything in-between, the chances are we will be able to supply and fit a stairlift for you.

A major concern that many buyers may have is that they have a set of stairs that is curved or has a landing. Not to worry; there are straight and curved lifts available for both indoor and outdoor use, so curved staircases shouldn’t present an issue. Another main concern is space. All modern stairlift chairs can be parked at the top or bottom of the stairs, or on a convenient extra ‘park point’. Some stairlifts even allow it to be parked around a corner if that works better within the space. Most stairlifts fold away in a compact manner when not in use, so it is generally not a major issue for others to get around it. However, the staircase does need to be wide enough to house the chair and someone sitting on it, something we can check with a free survey.

I think a stairlift may be right for me, what is the next step?

A stairlift is definitely not your average everyday purchase and is something that it’s likely you’re only going to buy once.

First, let’s start with the main purchasing steps:

  1. Assessment: Get in touch with us to set up a free in-home assessment. Our team will help you to decide on a practical solution best suited to your staircase and within your budget.
  2. Design: Depending on your staircase requirements, the design component can be as simple as taking measurements, or it can require a millimetre perfect photographic survey to build a 3D model of your staircase, which can be quite good fun to watch
  3. Installation: After the design is approved, the installation day is booked. This can be within a couple of days in some cases, and a few weeks for more bespoke options. The installation itself is a straightforward and non-intrusive process, taking just a few hours.

It really is as simple as 1-2-3, and you’re ready to lead a safer and more independent lifestyle.tions
