All homes are different and require a different approach when looking for stairlifts Stoke on Trent. The size and shape of your staircase, as well as your individual circumstances, will depend on the type of stairlift you will require. Below is a short guide to stairlift pricing and how your quote is calculated.
There are various factors that influence the final price of all stairlifts Stoke on Trent. Our experienced and friendly team of consultants will assess your staircase and take measurements to determine the type of stairlift that will best suit your home. Other factors that will be considered include the type railing and seat that you would like installed on your stairlift.
When carrying out a comprehensive consultation, there are several factors our consultants will consider:
- Will the shape of the stairs require the installation of a straight stairlift or a curved stairlift?
- What is the total width of your stairs, is there ample space for a stairlift, and what will the total travel distance be when using your newly installed stairlift?
- Do radiators or windowsills need adjusting or removing to accommodate for your new stairlift?
After assessing and measuring the space for the new stairlift, our consultant will then discuss any additional requirements you may have. This includes certain customisations, features (such as a power swivel seat), and types of upholstery. After the initial consultation, our team will provide you with a comprehensive quote that includes all preparation work and installation costs, plus a year’s free warranty on reconditioned stairlifts, and 2 years free warranty on new stairlifts.
Buying a reconditioned stairlift
With a wide range of reconditioned stairlifts available, get in touch with our consultants for more information regarding reconditioned stairlifts Stoke on Trent. Curved stairlifts are often made to measure for specific homes, and are less common when searching for a reconditioned stairlift.
A considerably cheaper option than a brand new stairlift, Stannah and other stairlift providers confirm that reconditioned and second-hand stairlifts should only be sold by authorised stairlift dealers. As a proud, authorised provider of Stannah stairlifts Stoke on Trent, we’re able to offer a comprehensive one-year guarantee and 24 hour, 365-day service support available from our locally based engineers.
The Range of Stannah Stairlifts Available
The December edition of our article investigates the range of Stannah stairlifts available and what you may want to think about when choosing from our range.
There is an intricate range of Stannah stairlifts available to cater to every requirement. Whether you are looking for an elegant stairlift to a completely different type of design, this is covered in our range. We will take a look at each Stannah stairlift that we have to offer as well as the features and benefits of each type of Stannah stairlift available.
The Starla range includes our most elegant and customisable stairlift. This ensures that your new stairlift suits your requirements whilst looking extremely stylish. These stairlifts can be used for both straight and curved rails, offering full upholstery with a rich dark or light wood trim finish. The ergonomic seatbelt available is easy to use and can be operated by using just one hand. There’s also no need to bend down as you have an optional automatic footrest fold button for easier use of your stairlift. These Starla stairlifts are highly practical and guarantee ease of use for the user.
The Siena range of Stannah stairlifts is our most popular stairlift whilst being a smart and innovative addition to your home. This range can also be used for both straight and curved rails with a wonderfully practical range of vinyl upholsteries. This is available in two seat widths and also includes an optional automatic footrest fold button. This popular range is ideal for a smart stairlift which is packed full of practicality.
In comparison to the other styles of Stannah stairlift available, the Sadler stairlift offers a totally different concept in regards to stairlift design. This design is perfect for individuals with limited movement in their knees and hips. This makes the difficult process of climbing the stairs with these conditions to be stress-free and the slim profile of this stairlift makes it the ideal stairlift for narrower staircases. The tilted seat allows for easier entry and exit and for a safer stairlift. The immobiliser seatbelt further increases safety for the user as it prevents use and operation of the stairlift until you are safely seated.
How Can a Stairlift Help You at Home?
The January edition of our blog post discusses how you can use a stairlift to help you at home and the various reasons you may want to rent or purchase a stairlift.
Using a stairlift can be greatly beneficial to you if you find that you are finding it difficult to climb the stairs or find that it’s becoming harder or uncomfortable to do so. If your home is on more than one floor then a stairlift can enable that you have continued access to your whole property and need not worry about climbing up the stairs. The ease of operation also makes your Stannah stairlift more friendly to operate. This is due to the fact that each Stannah stairlift has a range of features and extras to ensure that use is seamless for all users. A stairlift also can ensure that you have independence whilst living in your home as you can self operate your stairlift. If you do need assistance with your stairlift then it is also easy for another person to help you operate your stairlift with you. For temporary injuries in which you are finding it hard to be mobile, you can also have a stairlift or temporary stairlift installed to use. This can makes things easier than having to change your property around or sleep in the bottom floor of your house as you will be able to use your stairlift to access the upper level of your home.
Deciding to Rent or Purchase a Stannah Stairlift?
Deciding to rent or purchase a stannah stairlift is the next decision that you will have to make when choosing your new stairlift. Renting a stairlift allows for short term arrangements to be made as well as being able to install a stairlift whilst also being able to manage the cost with fixed payments. If you are still deciding as to whether you require a stairlift or if you require a short term solution to accessing the upper levels of your home then a rental stairlift is ideal for you. Purchasing and installing a stairlift is another great way to increase mobility in your home.

Should You Get a Stairlift?
The May edition of our stairlifts article discusses whether you should purchase a stairlift for your home.
Now that you know about the variety of stairlifts that are available, one question that often comes to mind is “should I purchase a stairlift?” Although there are a lot of stairlifts available, the choice of stairlift does not necessarily affect if you should purchase a stairlift. If you are purchasing a stairlift for your property which has a curved staircase then you will need to think about purchasing a curved stairlift but it is still possible to have a stairlift for these types of properties. The first aspect that you will want to consider is will a stairlift help you with everyday tasks? If you find that you are accessing the stairs frequently and are finding it increasingly more difficult to climb the stairs then a stairlift is perfect for your home. However, some situations do find it more appropriate to make changes to your property as a stairlift may not be appropriate for your requirements. Stairlifts also have a weight limit so this is also a factor that you need to take into consideration when considering a stairlift. Stairlifts are appropriate also for people with arthritis and other conditions where it is painful for you to climb the stairs. They are a comfortable way to remove the hazard or block that the stairs can pose for many individuals. If you feel that you would benefit from one of our stairlifts then you should enquire with one of our experienced technicians.
If You Are Still Not Sure Our Technicians Can Help
There’s other issues that may mean that you may want to wait before purchasing or renting your stairlift. If you still experience no pain when climbing the stairs then joints can deteriorate faster when not in use so staying mobile and active is very important. If you still are not sure as to whether you feel that a stairlift is appropriate for your property or to your requirements then you can always speak to our friendly and experienced technicians directly. We offer a no obligation quote in which we will come to your property, take measurements and discuss with you which stairlift you are thinking about purchasing or renting. During this quotation, we will discuss your requirements as well as why you may want to install a stairlift in your property. We will also have a look at your staircase and doing this allows us to assess your requirements further. You may have missed some aspects that you will need to think about and we can talk you through all of the aspects that you will need to think about. As with many products, you will sometimes need to put a lot of thought and consideration into what you require before you purchase or rent your stairlift. We will support you in this all of the way and ensure that you can install a stairlift that restores your independence and lets you climb the stairs safely and comfortably.
