View Full Version : Reputable firms that rent stair lifts in the north-west

10th May 2014, 12:59
Hi all,
I have searched the site regarding the above, and got a couple of companies to contact. I was wondering if anybody had used a company that covers North West, that were reputable, and not extortionate to install and rent? We are about to have some alterations done to the downstairs (i.e. wet room/toilet, possible bedroom) however I am currently struggling with the stairs and need something in the interim/or until I can no longer make use of it.
Keep well,

Hi Maximas08
Hope you have your stair lift sorted. I have just had a quote from Acorn, min 6months rent for 1100, is that expensive ?

Hi Clive ,

That sounds very expensive to me, ours cost around 50 per month to rent ,that's not a new one and just a straight track ,so expect new and more difficult curved installs will no doubt cost more , never fails to amaze me just how costly everything to do with disability is.

Hi Clive,
I ended up buying a reconditioned stairlift instead of renting. By the time I'd paid installation fees/removal fees and rental at around 60 per month, it probably worked out cheaper to do this. I needed a hinge piece at the bottom of the stairs, which upped the price by a further 300 and. All in all, fitted, 1450… Not cheap, but they have got you by ' the short and curlies'! I used a firm based in Manchester, that were recommended. They were very good, no pressure tactics, and would look at various options for cost.
