Discovering the right stairlift for you can be a challenging decision, one you definitely will not take lightly. With different stairlift brands out there and a wealth of knowledge available, it can be hard to pinpoint what details are essential. With this helpful guide, you'll be able to see a few highlighted options to look for when deciding to purchase a stairlift.   

The most important feature to look for when purchasing a stairlift is which type will work best for your unique staircase. There are several different types of stairlifts. Acorn offers three types curved stairlifts, straight stairlifts, and outdoor stairlifts. The type of stairlift that works best for you will come down to the location, the shape, and the configuration. To find out which stairlift will work best in your home, contact us for a free quote!  

Safety features are key! Take into account the importance of safety features for you or a loved one. A high-quality stairlift should have safety belts, hazard sensors, and a slow movable speed. When looking for the best fit, search for models that include diagnostic displays for any faults that unpredictably could happen. On top of having diagnostic capabilities, our stairlifts feature a remote control so you can call your stairlift to you no matter what end you are on. All Acorn Stairlifts go above and beyond on all safety features.   

Don't let your stairlift rack up unnecessary electric bills. All of Acorn's lifts utilise battery power; therefore, they use limited energy resources. The battery only needs charging while the lift is not in use and only needs as much energy as a small television on standby. Additionally, worry less about unexpected maintenance costs with the diagnostic display you can save by being aware of minor errors before they become major.   

Unfortunately, not all stairlifts are made the same. Some brands may be difficult to use or have limited accessibility to those struggling with joint deterioration. Acorn Stairlifts were designed from the ground up with accessibility in mind. No matter your age, mobility, or abilities, our stairlifts are there to satisfy your needs. Acorn is the only stairlift brand to be awarded the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of Use Certification, and it shows in the usability of all of our stairlifts.   

Having your stairlift maintained regularly is an important aspect of stairlift ownership. Keep your stairlift running to the best of its ability by having it serviced annually. Acorn Stairlifts offers aftercare and annual inspections after purchasing a stairlift. Preventative maintenance can help avoid costly repairs. Aftercare is an important feature to look for when buying a stairlift to ensure you can travel safely up the stairs reliably every time.   

Deciding to buy a stairlift is an important solution when it comes to your mobility. Understanding all the essential features and qualities of a stairlift can be crucial in finding what best suits your household. Bring more reliability, accessibility, and safety into your home with a quality stairlift.
