Stairlift tracks fall into two basic categories: straight and curved; it can be a little confusing to know which type you need for your staircase. If your staircase is straight and does not turn any corners between floors there are 3 stairlift systems for you to choose from. We also do curved stairlifts for staircases that turn corners. If you have limited knee or hip movement you may find a perch seat more comfortable. We have a perch seat option on straight stairlift system and are one of the few companies to offer a perch seat solution on a curved stairlift system.
Our stairlifts are battery powered, but we will require an outlet either at the top or bottom of the stairs to keep it charged. We can arrange installation of a powerpoint if required as part of our installation service. As the stairlift is battery powered it will continue to work for a number of return journeys even if your home loses power. If you have a powered swivel you will need to use the manual swivel lever.
The cost of a stairlift is based on factors including the staircase type, the features required and the custom specification you choose. Our assessors will spend the time understanding your needs and situation when calculating a personal quote. We’re proud to always be true to our word and the price we quote will be the price you pay, no hidden extras. When it comes to stairlift prices, not all stairlifts are the same. Your home and your stairs will require a bespoke solution – we pride ourselves on delivering a solution suited to your individual circumstances.
All stairlifts have safety sensors on the power pack and footplate. These are designed to stop the lift if it meets any obstruction. Once stopped it can only be moved in the opposite direction to the obstruction. All stairlifts have a diagnostic display so that you can monitor the status of your stairlift.
Our stairlifts are built to last, with low maintenance and high reliability. They run on DC power packs, which are automatically recharged at the end of every trip. This type of power ensures that the stairlifts are safe to use, are whisper quiet when in use and are incredibly smooth.
Most staircase surveys are quick and easy to perform. If your staircase is more complex with intermediate landings, fan stairs or a spiral for example, the survey will be conducted quickly. Curved stairlift tracks are designed to suit your individual staircase so it is important the staircase is measured accurately to ensure your track is the best possible fit.
All products are tailored to your specific needs and therefore, prices vary. They can change depending on the specific stair dimensions, the chosen stairlift model and any additional extras that you choose.

Stairlift seats and systems do vary between manufacturers. Whilst it is rare that a stairlift is not suitable, carrying out a User Assessment is advisable. This allows your supplier to not only double check that the dimensions of the lift are suitable for the user and the location, but it also allows them to specify which side controls should go and to discuss the possibility of adding powered features to make using the stairlift even easier. These may not be needed now but could be of huge benefit in the long term.
Like most mechanical appliances we recommend that you service your stairlift once a year. Once your warranty period has expired during which all your servicing needs are covered, we are happy to offer annual service contracts to ensure your stairlift continues to perform at its best.
During this assessment some measurements may be taken to ensure the stairlift chosen is suitable for the user. There will also be some simple questions to see which would be the best side to place the controls, what sort of seat belt would best suit the users and to ascertain which features would be required now and in the future.
The decision to install a stairlift is sometimes a difficult one to take but when compared with the alternative of moving house, or living on one level of their house, many people have found it to be their preferred option. The idea of selecting a stairlift and having it fitted may be a daunting task at first; however they can usually be fitted in a couple of hours and this website will help explain what you need to think about when choosing your stairlift. We hope it will make choosing the stairlift that is right for your needs both now and in the future much easier.
When you have a curve in your stairway, a mid-way landing or a spiral staircase your only option is a curved stairlift. They cost more than a straight stairlift because the rails have to be custom manufactured to suit your home. There are hundreds of permutations for a curved stairlift rail and a detailed survey must be done to get the designed rail to fit correctly. Just as with straight stairlifts they are battery powered so they can even be used in the event of a power cut. The batteries are always charged ready for use as when the stairlift is parked they are constantly charging.
