Which stairlift is most appropriate for me?

You may perhaps already have an idea of what kind of stairlift you need. For example, if you have straight stairs, the decision is easy – although you will still have plenty to choose from: the brand, model and the options.

 

It becomes a bit more complicated when you have little space at the top or bottom of the stairs to park the seat. Or when you have stairs with a landing and a few curves. You may even require a stairlift for several floors. In these cases, you need professional advice.

 

Professional advice

Our colleagues have seen thousands of staircases. They can advise which stairlift is best suited for your stairs. They will also consider aspects that influence the choice of stairlift. This includes the space available on the landing, the mobility of the user, others using the stairs or lift, your budget, and much more.

 

Because every stair situation can vary, our advisors are happy to come by (free of charge) to discuss your needs. They will then give specific advice and provide an estimate without obligation. We are also happy to come install the stairlift on your basic, straight stairs, of course!

Some of our installed stairlifts

New or second-hand stairlifts

The Summit Stairlifts company supplies brand new stairlift models as well as mint-condition used models. And we even offer a hybrid stairlift: a stairlift that is partially new. Occasionally, there may not be a suitable second-hand rail available, we can then have one built for you. By reusing the seat, you will still benefit from an affordable solution.

 

Our preference and that of our customers usually leans toward a second-hand stairlift. The electric stairlifts that we reuse are top quality. These stairlifts feature all kinds of modern options and look as good as new. The difference lies in the price. Because at Summit, the warranty is included.

Stairlift prices

The price of a stairlift depends on the make, model and the number of curves (or the lack thereof). The condition of the stairlift is also important: will you choose a new or used stairlift?

Frequently Asked Questions

Are used stairlifts safe?

Definitely! Our used stairlifts are just as safe as the new stairlifts. The used stairlifts meet the same safety requirements and have been technically inspected before installation. For extra assurance, we only purchase newer, well-maintained used stairlifts made by the best brands. We also offer our Comfort Plan. This is how we are able to guarantee that the stairlift will continue to function properly long after installation.

 

Buying or renting: which is more economical?

If you need a stairlift temporarily, you should consider renting a stairlift. You then only pay the initial fee and later the monthly amount. The rental contract can be terminated monthly. This rental arrangement ensures that you can also have stairlift at home for a short period. Buying is more appealing if you are going to use the stairlift longer. If you are unsure which option to choose, please feel free to contact our advisors. We are happy to help you find the right solution. Call us at 1-866-963-3801 (toll free).

 

Do stairlifts fit on every kind of staircase?

Yes, a new or second-hand stairlift can be installed on virtually every kind of stairs. The minimum width we require is 25 inches for straight stairs. If you are very tall and your stairs have curves, it could become a little cramped. Our seasoned advisors know exactly what will and will not work. Perhaps you have unique staircase made of marble or stone? That is not a problem either.

 

Can a stairlift be installed on very narrow stairs?

Yes, a stairlift can also be placed on narrow stairs. The minimum width required on the narrowest section is 25 inches. If you are unsure which option to choose, feel free to contact our advisors: they will often able to tell you over the phone whether your stairs are suitable.

 

What is the maximum load-bearing capacity (lbs.) of a stairlift?

On average, out stairlifts can carry 275 lbs. We also offer models that are built to hold 365 lbs.

 

How is a stairlift installed?

A stairlift is screwed onto the steps of the stairs and the floor, never onto the walls. If drilling on the steps is not possible, the stairlift will be glued on. This is also a strong and durable way to secure the stairlift.

 

Will my banister remain in place?

Most the stairlifts that we offer feature a single rail that runs along the steps. There are also models with a double rail. This makes the stairlift even more sturdy, but when the rail needs to be placed along the outer curve the banister will often need to be removed. The advantage of having that double rail is that the top rail often functions as a kind of “banister”.

 

How long will it take to supply the stairlift after my order?

After placing your order, it normally takes 3 weeks on average before we can install the stairlift. If the matter is urgent, installation is also possible within 24 hours. Installing a stairlift normally takes approximately 4 hours.

 

Do I receive a warranty on my second-hand stairlift?

All our second-hand stairlifts are thoroughly inspected and refurbished as needed. That is why we always provide a 1-year warranty. If you like, you can also buy a lifetime warranty in combination with our Comfort Plan!

 

What about the maintenance of the stairlift?

Every stairlift requires annual servicing. This applies to both new and used stairlifts.

 

Can I sell you my stairlift?

Yes, of course! We are always looking to buy durable, brand-name stairlifts so we can give them a new life. So, if you have a stairlift for sale, please contact us! Read more about selling a stairlift.

 

Where are Summit Stairlifts’ services available?

What is a stairlift?

A stairlift is a handy tool for people who can no longer go up or down the stairs on their own. A stairlift consists of a seat and a rail. The rail is mounted on the inner or outer curve of a staircase. The seat is powered by a motor and moves along the rail up and down the stairs.

 

The stairlift is normally designed to seat one person. This ensures that someone can safely go up and down the stairs again. There is a suitable stairlift for every staircase, whether it is straight, has one curve or has several curves.
