When choosing between Stairlifts there are numerous important considerations that need to be addressed before coming to a decision. Deciding on the best solution means weighing up the various options and then selecting a stairlift that suits your particular requirements.
Before you start looking for a stairlift it is essential to consider the operation of the installation. Who in the household will operate the stairlift? Is it possible for the user to operate it or will assistance be needed? Many stairlifts use buttons, but for certain individuals a joystick may be easier to control.
If you have a straight staircase then a simple straight installation will be required. However, staircases that curve, that have numerous levels or spiral staircases will need a curved stairlift. These stairlifts will need to be made to measure to ensure that they fit your home perfectly. This type of installation is more expensive because it requires a bespoke fitting and a made to measure product.
Many individuals will have concerns when it comes to budget. Perhaps you are concerned that you will not have enough money to pay for a new stairlift? However there are a number of options for those who are looking for a better financial solution. Once such option is to buy reconditioned stairlifts. These are old installations that have been repaired so that they are as good as a new one…only cheaper.
