How complicated is it to fit stairlifts?
The stairlifts are made to fit YOUR stairs and nobody else's, using measurements taken by the technical surveyor. When the stairlifts arrives at your home, it's already pre-configured and tested to fit your home so no construction work will take place.
Is it difficult to get on and off the lift?
The unique seat design swivels to allow you to get onto the lift safely at the top of the stairs. This enables you to dismount straight onto the landing, without twisting your body.
Will I still be able to use the stairs as normal?
