Peer recommendation

Do you know anybody that owns a stairlift? If so, talk to them –

their experience could prove useful. What do they like about

their stairlift?

What would they change?


Shop around

Ensure you have more than one stairlift quote so you can

do a like for like comparison on the complete package,

including product features and aftercare services.

Choose the right stairlift in your own time.


Professional advice

Make sure that you choose a stairlift manufacturer

or independent stairlift dealer that has a great

consumer track record.

You could research using Better Business Bureau (BBB),

Angies List or similar consumer records. They will

reassure you of the integrity of the company you are

dealing and the service you can expect to receive.

We often suggest that customers “Google” the term

“stairlift complaints” to see which companies they

definitely do not want to do business with.

Another good way of assessment is checking which 

certifications, awards and accreditations the stairlift

provider may already have.

Search out an independent dealer that is willing to

give you the time you need to explain the differences

between the shortlisted makes and models you have selected.

Try before you buy

We understand that purchasing a stairlift is an important


This is why we recommend you ask for the location of a

real installation nearby to you to go for a test ride before

you buy.

At a minimum you should always ask for references from

past customers recent and a few years ago to establish

what type of long term support your dealer is likely to provide.


What’s the best stairlift for you?

To choose the right stairlift, look at your personal

circumstances and consider which

product features would benefit you the most.

To help you assess your situation, an experienced technical

stairlift sales-person will talk you through the available

options and inform you about which type of stairlift

will work for you – both now, and in the foreseeable future.
