Step 1: Browse
Buying your very own stairlift can seem like a big investment, and it is. But
doing your research beforehand can help you figure out all the options available to you, and allow you to make an informed decision about the type of model you want and need. If you know someone like a friend, neighbour, or family member who already owns a stairlift, speak to them about their experience. This way you can be sure to get an honest and unbiased opinion about choosing a stairlift, as well as getting some suggestions about the type of stairlift you might want.
Step 2: Home assessment
Once you’ve decided to go ahead, the next step is to book your completely free home assessment. Simply speak to one of Halton’s team over the phone to arrange a date and time that’s most convenient for you. The visit is always carried out by one of our trained surveyors where they’ll take precise measurements of your stairs and landing in order to gauge your exact stairlift requirements. This is a great opportunity to ask your surveyor any questions you might have about the whole process.
Step 3: Quote
Next, your surveyor will provide an accurate no-obligation quote based on the most suitable type of stairlift needed. Apart from significantly busy periods, such as Christmas, most surveys are carried out within 24 hours, and our no-pressure promise means you’re under absolutely no obligation to accept the quote given if you change your mind.
Step 4: Installation day
Once you’ve decided to go ahead your engineer will arrive promptly to install your stairlift. Installations usually take no longer than a few hours. Due to the fact that all modern stairlifts fix to the stairs themselves and not the wall, there’s no need to worry about any messy aftermath or debris.
Once your brand new stairlift is installed – it’s all yours! Your engineer will guide you through how to use it properly and safely, including tips about general maintenance and aftercare so you can ensure it’s always working at its best.
Stairlifts are often the most convenient and practical option for people with limited mobility – enabling people all across the UK to stay living independently in their homes.
