Your Guide to Buying a Stairlift

If getting up and down the stairs has become a struggle for you, then you may wish to install a stairlift. This is a much more practical and cost effective option than having to move into a bungalow. Having a stairlift fitted will transform your quality of life, allowing you to carry on living independently in your own home. If you often struggle moving up and down stairs regularly, a stairlift will be extremely useful to you.

Jump straight to…


If somebody you know owns a stairlift, ask them about their experience using the device. Has it helped them? If so, how? Peer recommendations will prove very useful as you will be able to get a first hand account of the benefits of using a stairlift on a daily basis. Also, by asking a friend, you will receive an honest and unbiased opinion about it so you can then come to a fair conclusion.

Once you are sure that a stairlift is right for you, it is important to find the perfect stairlift to meet your needs and requirements.

Type of stairlift.

There are 2 types of stairlifts available; ones for straight staircases, and ones for curved staircases. Here at Vivid Care, we offer a number of variations on models for both types of staircases. This is because we understand the importance of having a wide range to meet the individual requirements of the person inquiring. Vivid Care provide each client with thorough advice on the best stairlift to suit their needs. We offer new, reconditioned, and hire options so that you can obtain the ideal stairlift for whatever your situation may be.

The process:

  1. Firstly, Vivid Care will offer you a no obligation site survey from our stairlift specialist who obtains over 30 years experience!
  2. Secondly, we will send you a detailed quotation. This will include what type of stairlift is available for you, and accurate quotes on costs and ranges.
  3. If you then wish to proceed, the stairlift will be manufactured to fit the precise measurements and detailed drawings of your staircase. If a stairlift is required immediately, Vivid Care have a fast track system which can speed up the process.
  4. Once the stairlift has been built to meet your requirements, we will book an appointment for our own engineers to come and install the stairlift in your home. Vivid Care engineers are extremely experienced and provide high quality workmanship.

Please note that we are always available to maintain, service and repair stairlifts even in many years to come.
