Going up and down stairs can be unbelievably distressing for lots of people, with failing knees and hips. A fresh lift turns something you’ve got to do multiple times in a day into an enjoyable experience, rather than a painful one, and makes that process completely pain-free. A fresh lift will make your everyday life much more easy.
For the kids of aging parents, of if their parent remains healthy and not trapped, the daily worry is a daily anxiety. By adding a stair lift to the house, you can greatly reduce this worry, and make life much easier for everyone around, knowing that the stairs are now considerably safer than before.
Mobility and accessibility equipment already installed in your house is going to be a significant advantage as the baby boomer population proceeds to get older. It’ll make your home more precious, and be purchased quicker in case something happens. A new elevator can greatly increase your home’s value.
Do you procrastinate as you get frustrated that your list of things to do is more and then can’t get up the stairs?
Does the extra assist you to supply your elderly parent or dependent seem too dangerous and overwhelming when it comes to following them down and up the stairs?
Here at Stairlifts Plus , we realize that making home modifications may appear out of the inquiry, as it seems impossible or unaffordable. Staff and our professional installers simplify the method of staying mobile for the elderly, disabled, or briefly wounded residents of Schenectady.
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.
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. Please book a free, no-obligation assessment with one of our trained sales consultants to obtain a personal written quotation.
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 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.
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.
Stairlift prices can depend on a number of factors as it’s not just our stairlift rails that are made to measure but our seats can also be tailored to your needs. To establish your stairlift cost our consultants have a number of things to consider. All the factors below will be carefully measured to ensure they can give you an accurate specification and stairlift price quotation. Once these factors that affect pricing have been considered, our consultant can give you a accurate quotation for your stairlift that will include all preparation work and installation.
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.
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.
