When you’ve made the decision to invest in a stairlift, you’ll want to know ‘what is the best stairlift to buy?’. From getting good value for money to a stairlift that’s built to last, choosing the best stairlift often boils down to what you need from your stairlift combined with your personal preference and circumstances.

Here we take a closer look at the decision-making process for buying a stairlift. Make it easier to find your perfect match.

 

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT IS THE BEST STAIRLIFT TO BUY?

 

There are a few factors to consider so you can find the best stairlift for you. You’ll want to think about:

 

Your needs

 

The first thing to think about when buying a stairlift is YOU. Your physical needs are most likely to determine the kind of stairlift you need. When struggling with the stairs, most people opt for a seated chair lift. This type of stairlift allows you to sit down during the journey up and down the stairs. Seated stairlifts take the pressure off joints and alleviate worries around balance when standing. Some models of stairlift also offer stand or perch options too.

Something else to consider is your weight. Most stairlifts can carry a weight limit of around 18-20 stone. If you’re lifting more than this, heavy duty stairlifts like our Brooks Heavy Duty Stairlift that can carry up to 25 stone, are likely to be your best option.

 

Your home

 

The next thing to consider is the layout of your home. If your stairs…

If you’re unsure where to begin with knowing which stairlift will suit your home, you could use our stairlift measuring guide or find out more about ‘how much space does a stairlift take?‘. Alternatively, you can contact us to arrange a free home assessment with one of our surveyors. They can measure up for you, chat through your options, and give you a quote. After the home visit, you’ll be left to make up your own mind with no obligation to buy, thanks to our no pressure promise.

 

Your budget

 

The best stairlift to buy may also be guided by how much you have to spend. Reconditioned stairlifts, like the reconditioned Stannah Stairlifts Sofia, tend to be cheaper than new stairlifts. But with interest-free finance options, you might want to opt for a brand new stairlift from our collection.
