Are your stairs becoming too difficult for you to manage?
Do you find yourself choosing not to use the stairs during the day, due to the amount of effort it takes to climb the stairs and safety concerns?
Is another family member, or carer, having to help you climb the stairs and ensure you are safe?
If you’ve answered ‘YES’ to any of the questions above, it may be time to consider the many benefits of using a stairlift in your home.
Many people who would really benefit from having a stairlift are put off by the perception of stairlifts being expensive, but in fact, stairlifts can be surprisingly affordable, given that there are also used, reconditioned models that can be purchased.
The addition of a stairlift means you are able to use the stairs as often as you like, from a simple visit to an upstairs loo, or for an afternoon nap in the bedroom, a stairlift takes out a major obstacle and opens up your home to the full use and access you should be able to enjoy.
How to see if a stairlift’s right for you?
The process for deciding on whether to buy a stairlift starts with a simple survey in your home, by our expert team.
There is nothing to worry about in having a survey, it’s completely free, there are no sales pitches, and you don’t have to make any decision on the day, we’ll simply send you the results of our survey with the stairlift options that are best suited to your needs and your type of stair configuration, and let you make your decision in your own time.
We’ll also give you a full itemised quotation, so you can look at the costs involved to help you to make your decision. Again, this is completely without any obligation.
