Straight stairlifts, whilst being the cheaper option, still come with a variety of options. For example, standard seats or de-luxe seats, or with a choice of colours. Your stairs may be too narrow to accommodate a standard chair and so a perch and stand lift may be the answer.
Although most seats swivel for ease of alighting, if you are unable to turn the seat itself, a powered swivel seat is an optional extra. Some stairlifts require a folding track if, for instance, there is a doorway close to the bottom of the stairs.

For all these reasons (and others too) we advise a personal consultation with our engineer who will discuss all the options with you. In some instances we can offer a same day fitting service.
For extra peace of mind, all of our stairlifts come with a minimum parts and labour warranty for one year, with most new lifts offering a two or three year warranty. Please ring for details.
