Choosing the Right Stairlift

There are two types of stair lifts available in the market today, straight stairlifts and curved stairlifts. In choosing the best stairlift for your stairs you have to consider some factors.

It is necessary to determine the type of stairs at home. If your stairs are in a straight line, then you will have a straight stairlift. This is the most economical choice. Our stairlift prices for this type of lift start as little as £950.

If your stairs have curves, turns or landings in the middle, you will probably need a curved stairlift. Usually, stairlifts with curves have to be custom made and therefore are more expensive. Our curved stairlifts for sale start at around £2300.

If your staircase has two straight sections with a landing in the middle, you may opt for two straight stairlifts which may cost less than curved stairlift.

If you have a small curve at the top of your landing One Stop Mobility can usually build a custom made platform which will also be less expensive than a curved lift.

The user’s condition is also a factor. Is it is permanent or temporary? If the injury is temporary, which could last about a year, it may be practical to rent a stairlift, If a disability is permanent it is probably practical to buy a stairlift.

For more savings, you could choose a used or reconditioned stairlift. A reconditioned stairlift from One Stop Stairlifts comes with the same guarantees as a brand new stairlift.

Most types of stairlifts run off of a battery operated motor, or possibly two batteries, depending on the size of the stair chair. In the event of a power outage, the chair will run off of the battery that is used as a backup.

One Stop Mobility can help you choose the right stairlift for you, your family and your budget.
