Stairlift Prices aim to help you as much as we possibly can, which is why we have complied a list of the most commonly asked stairlift questions and answers.
Will I need to redecorate after my stairlift is installed?
No, stairlifts are attached to the stairs and not the walls, so there is minimum disruption to your home.
How long does it take to install a stairlift?
It can take less than one hour to install a stairlift in your home, as they are built to your stairs exact requirements before the stair lift is delivered. However, depending on your stairway and if you need a straight or curved stairlift, time frames for install can differ.
How much will a stairlift cost?
As all stairlifts are designed and manufactured to your exact requirements, there is no set price for a stairlift because every home is different. Reconditioned stairlifts are the cheaper option and they are completely refurbished like new.
What kind of warranty will I get with my stairlif?
Whether you purchase a new or reconditioned stairlift, all good manufactures will offer a one year warranty as standard. If you get a quote for a stairlift which does not come with a one year warranty, chances are the company is not legitimate.
If I arrange a survey, will I get a hard sell?
Definitely not! We would only recommend reputable stair lift companies, where all surveys are completely free and without any obligation to purchase anything.
What if I have a narrow staircase, can I still have a stairlift installed?
Yes, stairlifts are designed and manufactured to suit your needs and there are many narrow stairlift options available.
What is the maximum weight a stairlift can carry?
At Acorn, the maximum weight for a straight stairlift is 280Ibs (20 stone). Curved stairlift 265Ibs (18.9 stone).
What will happen if there is a power failure, will my stairlift still work?
Yes, most stairlifts are now battery powered and will continue to work even if there is a power cut in your home.
