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.
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.
Your stairlift will also come with a seat belt as standard for additional peace of mind. Our easy release retractable seat belt gives the added flexibility of allowing you to fasten it to one side or centrally, whichever is easier for you or other users. Choosing a stairlift is about understanding your needs and wants and selecting the most appropriate solution.
We strongly believe that not all stairlifts should be the same. Just as every home and every person is different we offer a range of features across our products – such as powered swivels and automatic footrest folds – along with a wide selection of upholstery choices so our customers can get the perfect stairlift for them and their home. The type of staircase in your home will have an impact on the type of rail you will need, costs and how long it will take us to make your stairlift. When you invite us to quote our sales consultant will assess your staircase and explain the options we can offer.
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.

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.
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 are operated by pressing or holding the large, robust toggle switch in the direction of travel. Located at the end of the seat arm it can be easily operated by the hand or arm and leaves the arm rest clear to provide unhindered support when getting on or off the seat.
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.
