Stairlift Buying Guide

Choosing a Stairlift

If you are experiencing difficulty getting up and down the stairs and are beginning to consider a stairlift installation in your home, here are our top tips for buying a stairlift.

  • Identify the type of stairlift you need – Visit our stairlift types page for more info
  • Consider the long-term need for your stairlift – If you are struggling with a progressive condition or expect your condition to deteriorate try to consider what the best long term option is. This may mean considering a platform lift or stairlift with a perch seat.
  • Consider your environment – Will your stairlift block any doors, radiators etc in your home?
  • Consider who will be controlling the stairlift – Do you want multiple controls for the stairlift for both a user a carer?
  • Consider the choice of colours and upholstery – Do you want your stairlift to match your home interior?
