What should you look for in a stairlift?
Once you’ve made the decision to get a stairlift, the next step is choosing the right model for you.
Do you know anybody that owns a stairlift? If so, talk to them – their experience could prove useful. What do they like about their stairlift? What would they change?
Ensure you have more than one stairlift quote so you can do a like for like comparison on the complete package, including product features and aftercare services. Choose the right stairlift in your own time.
Make sure that you choose a stairlift manufacturer that has a British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) accreditation, with OFT Code of Conduct approval. They assure you of the integrity of the company you are dealing and the service you receive.
Another good way of assessment is checking which award and accreditations the stairlift provider may already have.
