Everything You Need to Know About Stairlifts In

3 easy steps

Buying a Stairlift?

The purchase of a stair lift can be the simplest solution to many people who are now finding the stairs in their home a continuous challenge. 'Chairlifts' or 'chair lifts' are correctly known as stairlifts and are readily available from literally hundreds of stairlift suppliers but only a handful of stairlift manufacturers. Stairlifts are readily available for straight stairs with a quick installation time from when you place an order, whereas stairlifts for curved stairs are typically bespoke stairlifts that are installed after a technical stairlift survey has been completed and a bespoke curved stairlift track has been fabricated. The main advantage of a bespoke stairlift installaton is that the stairlift engineer is able to install the curved stairlift track closer to the wall than that of a curved stairlift track that has not had a technical survey conducted before hand.

Because of the vast number of stairlift sources in the UK Which Stairlift was created to help consumers find the correct stairlift solution at the right price. We continuously negotiate competitive prices for our users because of the large numbers we refer to our preferred stairlift manufacturers.

Our Opinion on Reconditioned Stairlifts:

Being in a position to purchase a new stairlift is not always a viable option for some. It is also worth considering the installation of a cheap stairlift. Buying a reconditioned stair lift need not be false economy, normally a second hand chairlift is a refurbished stairlift. Reconditioned stairlifts would normally be installed with a minimum of a full 12 month warranty. Second hand chair lifts are not only available for straight stairs, you can also purchase reconditioned curved stairlifts. You should ask your stairlift supplier what options are available to you during your free survey.
