How Long Does It Take To Install A Stairlift?

So, you’ve decided that you need to book a stairlift installation. What happens now? Installation is a quick turnaround if you’re in a hurry. Once you’ve got in touch with us, we’ll give you a range of product and pricing options. After this, we’ll organise a visit to the property. Here’s what to expect.

Home Assessment

This isn’t just a survey of the location, but a further consultation of your needs. It involves details like the choice of seatbelt, controls position and colour of the upholstery.

During this appointment, we can answer any questions you may have about stairlifts and talk you through the installation process. We will assess your staircase to see if they’re okay to accommodate a lift. This includes surveying whether they are wide enough, or whether there are any obstructions that may cause problems.

If you’re concerned about your walls, you need not worry. Almost all our rails are fixed to the staircase, with feet attached to the steps. If you’ve got anymore doubts, make sure to let us know during this stage.

Straight Vs Curved Stairlifts

Depending on the complexity of your house and the course of your steps, you will either be given a straight system or a curved one. The wait times on these may be different. If your steps have lots of bends, the rails may take a bit longer to arrive than the straight systems. Every case is different, so some rails may have to be tailor-made.

Your Stairlift Installation Day

The actual installation of stairlifts is swift, with fittings rarely taking more than a day. It will be a matter of hours if you have a straight staircase. Once it’s installed, the technician will talk you through how to use it. You will be equipped and ready to get some independence back.

Service & Repairs

If you encounter any issues after your stairlift installation, our team can help. We recommend servicing annually, so you have the peace of mind that everything is in a good working condition. Any problems could limit your ability to get from one floor to another, so it’s important to maintain your stairlift.

Because stairlifts are specialist equipment, it’s best to employ an expert to carry out any maintenance. Give Dolphin Stairlifts a call if you have any concerns about your system. We’d be happy to help.
