7 Benefits of Installing a Stairlift

Are you thinking of installing a stairlift? If your stairs are becoming difficult to navigate and a challenge in your everyday life, there’s no need to worry. You don’t have to downsize or move to a retirement facility, stairlifts are a great option that can work around you and your needs.

In this article, we will share reasons of why you should install a stairlift and the many benefits this mobility solution can bring.


1. Increased Safety

One of the main benefits of installing a stairlift is safety. By eliminating the risk of injury by climbing up and down the stairs, stairlifts are immediately safer. Also, as they are designed as a reliable solution to travelling from floor to floor, they have many safety features included which makes them all the more dependable. With stairlifts, there is no reason to be afraid of the stairs anymore!

2. Great Usability

As well as being a safe solution, stairlifts are a simple and easy solution too; they have been created to make getting around your home as easy as possible. Therefore, they are very simple to operate. Stairlifts vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but as standard, they have easy-to-use control systems typically using a remote control or toggle switch on the arm rest.

3. Comfort Solution

If you have reduced mobility, we’re sure one of the main things you’re looking for is a comfortable solution as well as a practical one. Although it’s not a long trip to take up the stairs, it’s still important for your journey to be restful. Stairlifts are usually adjustable to fit around you and there are sometimes additional options, like extra cushion, if you require further comfort.

4. Total Independence

Another benefit of stairlift installation is that it enables you to regain independence and freedom. There is no longer the need for assistance from another individual to help you get from A to B. You won’t need to worry or fear the challenge of climbing your staircase, you can move around freely with no restrictions or limitations.

5. Time & Cost-Effective

Alternative options to installing a stairlift are a lot more expensive. Moving to a bungalow or an assisted living facility or hiring someone to help you move around will all cost more money than the stairlift installation cost. Not only this, but it also saves you a huge amount of time compared to selling your home and buying a new one.

6. Stay At Home

Following on from the point above, stairlifts give you the option of staying at home rather than transferring to an assisted living or retirement facility. When stairs are the biggest safety concern in your home, this can be resolved quickly and easily by installing a stairlift. You will be able to continue living amongst your beloved home full of memories and not be limited to the ground floor.

At East Coast Mobility, we also offer mobility beds and chairs to make your home as comfortable as possible for you.

7. Tailored to You

When it comes to stairlift installation requirements, it’s not just the measurements of your staircase that are important, it’s making sure you feel comfortable, safe and confident in using the stairlift. That’s the beauty of installing a stairlift; it will be designed specifically for your house and for you.

So, why should you install a stairlift? If you are looking for a practical, affordable and customisable mobility solution to be more independent and feel comfortable in your own home, then installing a stairlift is the answer. Here are some more questions you may have answered by our expert team.


How Easy Is It to Install a Stairlift?

Every property and staircase layout are different, however, installing a stairlift should be completed within one day to ensure the highest levels of safety and minimal disruption.

How Much Does It Cost to Install a Stairlift?

There is no one-price-fits-all approach when it comes to stairlift installation cost. The average cost of a stairlift is usually between £2,000 – £3,000. At East Coast Mobility, there is a comprehensive guarantee on all installation work which is usually 24 months.

Can You Put a Stairlift on Any Stairs?

Generally, a stairlift can be fitted to any kind of staircase. Installing a stairlift works around you, your needs and your property. Our stairlift specialists complete a fully detailed pre-install survey and source your stairlift, then our stairlift installers provide expert installation with all electrical work included.

From start to finish, the service has been fantastic. From ensuring the reconditioned scooter I purchased was in top condition, to the great delivery experience through to dealing with helpful lady on the phone. I was most grateful for the non pushy sales approach - you gave me time to think. Extra information and assistance was immediately on hand. I cannot fault East Coast Mobility!

Thank you so much for coming to my aid at Beccles Medical Centre. I wish we had more local businesses, and not just the internet for service.

Robert Smith

Just received my Cabin Car back after work done. The service I got was exceptional.

Not only was the work done to a brilliant standard they collected and delivered it too.

Well done East Coast Mobility! I thoroughly recommend them to anyone with mobility scooter problems.

Thank you to all the staff for a first class experience.

Caroline Long

Absolutely brilliant service, while she was very poorly my Mum's stair lift stopped working and got stuck in a doorway in a really awkward place so I called round a few places but most couldn't help very quickly.

East Coast Mobility not only told me how to move it so it wasn't in the way anymore but they also came out the following day and got it fixed with new batteries! Such a relief and all done sooo quickly.

Vinnie Harris

Great people who are very helpful. Reasonably priced and great variety of products. Highly recommend these people. Great to support a family business.

It all worked out well in the end.
Easy Access Ramp is pucker!

Karen Neil

I can't thank Grant and everyone enough at East Coast Mobility for their fantastic help in installing my stairlifts and at an affordable price beating several others I had round.

Giving me back some desperately needed independence for which I thank them with all my heart, they honestly went above and beyond.

I have no hesitation in highly recommending them to anyone that needs help or advice, they really do care.

Paul Green

I feel I must write and say a huge thank you for the service my wife and I received last week when we came to look at new scooters.

We were both very pleased with how comfortable and reliable they are and were pleasantly surprised at the professional approach we received from Grant.

Malcolm Lyell

Excellent service. We needed an engineer late in afternoon to fix my father's stairlift as he could not have got to toilet or bed that night. They left the workshop and attended within 30 mins - fault fixed!

Very helpful and knowledgeable.

Chris Bartlett

A very pleasant place to go for your mobility equipment. Staff are very knowledgeable and very helpful.

I've used them for several years now and they have always accommodated all my disability needs.
