Getting Your Stairlift Installed

12:00am & Tips and Advice

The addition of a stairlift will change your mindset on mobility in your home. After our lovely team members have surveyed your house, you should get ready and excited for your installation. Here's what you can expect from your upcoming stairlift installation. 

A professional engineer will come out to your household to survey your staircase online or in person. When they have finished their review, you can set up an installation date and time that works well for you. 

Is There Anything I Need to Do to Prepare?

It is not difficult to prepare your home for installation. You need to ensure that your staircase is free of all cabinetry, objects, or anything else that may obstruct the stairs. Wall décor or wall attachments do not need to be removed because the stairlift rail is connected to the steps rather than the wall. Ensuring the engineers have a straightforward path is a perfect way to guarantee everything goes well on installation day. 

There is no need to prepare cleaning materials. Our qualified technicians, who work from their mobile workshops, do an excellent job cleaning up after themselves. They are well-versed in best practices for keeping your home clean, tidy, and protected. 

How Much Time Does It Take to Install a Stairlift? 

The procedure itself can take between 1 and 5 hours, depending on the model you have installed. Depending on the configuration, curved stairlifts can take a little longer than straight stairlifts. Even though installation takes just a few hours, no safety is compromised. Our supplier rigorously tests them before they even arrive at your house. Once completed, the installer will ensure that both the carriage and the rail function correctly and follow or exceed our safety requirements. 

When your installation is finished and your stairlift is entirely operational, you will have the opportunity to try it out. The engineer will be with you every step of the way, guiding you through operation, accessibility, and the user manual. They will remain until you are fully secure in your abilities to use the lift. 

Following Installation 

When they go, the technician will most certainly suggest our aftercare services. Our aftercare is critical to the stairlift's longevity. Regular maintenance is recommended to ensure that the stairlift runs appropriately for several years to come. If you need assistance, there is a help desk with 24/7 service that you can contact at any time. 

Deciding to purchase an Acorn Stairlift is a vital step toward taking control of your mobility. You'll be on the way to a new degree of freedom thanks to a smooth installation, intelligent technicians, and a welcoming help desk.
