It can be challenging to choose the right stairlift for yourself or a loved one. Fortunately, we're here to help remove some of the uncertainty from the equation. If you need assistance climbing the stairs or are scared of slipping, a stairlift could be the best option for you that may change your life. Installing a stairlift in your residence can be highly beneficial; you need to be mindful of some of the best features to search for in choosing the most suitable one for you:  

  • There are a few different kinds of stairlifts, but determining which one is best for your home is not difficult. Acorn offers straight, outdoor, and curved stairlifts. Acorn Stairlifts are all custom-built to suit your unique home and can be installed the next day. A surveyor will usually come out to assess which lift is better matched to your needs. The shape of your staircase, location, and arrangement of your steps can all determine factors. Read more about the different types of stairlifts by clicking here. 

  • One of the most important considerations when buying a stairlift is safety. A reliable stairlift should have safety measures such as seatbelts, a stable, smooth speed, and dependable operation. All of these features, as well as others, are available on Acorn Stairlifts. Acorn makes it simple to choose a lift that will keep you safe while still providing the highest value. Our lifts have diagnostic screens that can spot any abnormal stairlift errors. We also have a remote control for your convenience, so you can access your lift no matter where you are on the stairs.  

  • Cost and efficiency are also crucial factors when considering buying a stairlift. Our stairlifts are equipped with a powerful battery. When the lift is not in use, you will plug the battery into the wall. There's no need to be nervous about monthly energy costs because the battery needs the same amount of power to charge as regular television. You will also save money on unwanted repairs by monitoring the digital diagnostic display for quicker resolutions.  

  • Not all stairlifts are created equally. Some manufacturers find it challenging to develop completely accessible lifts, especially for those with limited joint mobility. Acorn Stairlifts are appropriate for people of all ages and abilities. The Arthritis Foundation has designated Acorn as the only stairlift brand that is user-friendly. If you need a stairlift for a family member or yourself, you may be confident that our stairlifts will be convenient to use and maneuver.  

  • After you've purchased your stairlift, you can consider servicing and repairs. A dependable aftercare service is essential for keeping your stairlift in good working order. Acorn has warranty options available to ensure that the lift is well-maintained over time. We recommend an annual check to make sure that all preventative repairs are completed to eliminate any complications.  

Making a significant investment, such as a stairlift, generally requires several factors to consider. The decision could have far-reaching positive impacts. With the right stairlift, you can increase your mobility, accessibility, and protection inside your home. Acorn Stairlifts is happy to assist you in whatever manner we can to make purchasing your stairlift as easy as possible. Please visit the 'Contact Us' page for all your questions and concerns.
