What to Consider When Purchasing a Stairlift   

As we know, every person's home is unique; it is important to keep your personal considerations in mind when buying a stairlift. Many stairlift reviews can be challenging to understand; unlike some expert reviews, the best products are typically chosen based on real-world results. However, it's important to consider the traditional comparing of stairlifts would not provide much insight for you or your loved ones. A stairlift is traditionally just a tool to get you up and downstairs. So, what you are really looking for is a reliable stairlift from a reputable company with great service at a reasonable price. Here are some things we considered while looking at the top stairlifts.   



Many stairlifts fit any stairway, but curved stairwells may require custom stairlifts. We have developed a remarkably effortless way to work with you to get some basic measurements and pictures of your staircase. This feature enables us to determine suitability and pricing. This process can easily be carried out using a smartphone or tablet. With that said, we can take you through a step-by-step process. As a result, we should fully understand your needs and which stairlift is the best for you.   



Make sure the stairlift you purchase meets the highest safety standards and requirements. Did you know all Acorn Stairlifts are available with a unique hinged rail option? Our design was specifically created to eliminate any obstruction your stairlift may encounter. We have successfully discovered trip hazards at the foot of the stairs. Acorn Stairlifts have all the features you need and none you do not! Your stairlift should include brakes, safety belts, and sensors that stop the chair if an object is in the way. Also, Acorn Stairlifts have a well-earned reputation for reliability. That is why we recommend that your stairlift is serviced every 12 months by one of our skilled technicians. We want to ensure its optimum trouble-free performance for many years to come.   



As with anything in your home, your stairlifts should have been comfortable. An Acorn Stairlift offers a spacious backrest and footrest. Also, you will find that our models come with ergonomically designed seats or adjustable seats and footrests. Designed from the ground up for any staircase, our stairlifts offer a comfortable and reliable ride. We have worked hard to produce an advanced self-leveling carriage that moves along the modular rail system with ease. Also, we have considered the usability for all users; we wanted to ensure the chair has a soft start/stop and easy-to-use controls.   



Acorn’s Stairlifts offers a revolutionary FastTrack® system meaning even the most complex stairlift can be fitted in just a few hours. There is no need to wait weeks for a one-off rail to be designed and built in a factory then dispatched to your home, with no option to modify on-site. Once your stairlift is fitted, our engineer will put it through a thorough testing procedure designed to make sure it works as it should.   


Lastly, the best stairlift for you may not necessarily be the best for your neighbor and vice versa. It’s best to find a seat that fits not only your comfort but the aesthetics of your home. Understanding that there are plenty of factors to consider when choosing a stairlift, the easier it will be to find the best fit for daily use. We are confident that we can offer expertise with our many years involved in the stairlift industry. We are here to help you select the best stairlift in the market for you or your loved one.
