Optional Extras

Acorn 130 Straight Hinge Demonstration In South African Home

Manual Hinge

If there is a doorway near the foot of the stairs the optional manual hinged rail is ideal.

The lower section of the rail can be folded up and out of the way manually, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs.

When the stairlift is not is use, the rail is neatly out of the way and causes no obstruction.

Morning Yolande,

I was very impressed with the work that Ashton did. His pleasant nature was such a breath of fresh air.

His professionalism and “clean” way of workmanship was excellent.

This is going to be of great assistance to our Mom.

Firstly my thanks to you Salome, who acted so quickly and who put me in a position the make a decision quickly; in fact I could detect it from the word go! You are a great asset to your employer.

The "on time" visit from your technician is just supperb; in addition to this his arrival on time to do the installation faultless.

Your Company should be proud on staff of this quality; in SA this kind of service just does not exist.

Anyone would pay your price if this type of outstanding service is rendered.

Again I wish to commend you; your Company will survive any depression because you THERE!!!!

I thank you.

Hello Mark,

I wanted to take the time to give you feedback on the excellent service I experienced with Acorn stairlifts.

Every person that I encountered during my interactions, from Russel, to the gentleman that came out to measure the staircase and Salome has been just remarkable.

There is a definite customer centric culture from your employees. It is evident from their pleasant etiquette on telephone and emails, the time they take to listen and understand questions and their efficient responsiveness to calls and emails.

I have dealt with many companies as a consumer and business person, but have never come across such an outstanding example of customer service.

Well done to you and your team of champions, very few companies get this simple concept of customer service correct.

Good luck with your business going forward.

Please pass my sincere gratitude to your great team members that I have dealt with.

Kind regards
