Frequently Asked Questions About Stair Lifts: 

Can more than one person use the stair lift?           Yes, but not at the same time! So long as both users are within the weight limit (safe working load.) – The stairlift weight limit should be indicated on the lift carriage. If in doubt check with the manufacturer or retailer.

How easy is the stair lift to use?           Very, simply pressing on the joystick controller, located on the armrest, in direction of travel and you move off steadily and smoothly.

What if something gets in the way of the stairlift?            The lift has numerous safety sensors, which automatically stop the lift if anything is detected in its path.

What happens if the lift has been left upstairs and I am downstairs?      This is a common occurrence when two or more members of a household use the stairlift. The lifts are supplied with two hand held or wall-mounted remote controls. By, simply, pressing the remote control, the lift will be called up or down stairs.

Will I still be able to use the stairs as normal?           Yes, when not in use the lift can be folded away to allow the staircase to be used by other people and visitors.

Is it difficult to get on and off the lift?            No, the seat design swivels to allow you to get onto the lift safely at the top of the stairs. This enables you to alight onto the landing, without twisting your body. If there is room, an overrun can take you clear of the stairwell.

How comfortable is it to ride a stairlift?         How comfortable a ride will depend upon the model you purchase and any specific physical conditions that may be affected.

How will I learn how to use the stairlift?                  Following installation you should also be given an in-depth demonstration of comfort and safety features, as well as a comprehensive list of checks before the engineer leaves so you can get to know your lift.
