How Long Does It Take To Install a Stair Lift?

Straight, Curved and Outdoor stairlifts meet the current UL work and safety standards. Acorn Stair Lifts are fitted directly to the stair treads and not the wall which results in the process being quick, simple and clean.


If your Acorn Stairlift has been manufactured to the exact dimensions of your home, it can take less than an hour! A curved stairlift may take longer to install, but any disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.


Before an Acorn Installer leaves your home, they will make sure that the stairlift is tested thoroughly, and demonstrate all the features - making sure you are perfectly happy and know how to use it - and of course leave everything as clean and tidy as you had it before.


Why not contact us 800-259-0370 and arrange to be visited by one of Acorn's local friendly surveyors to find out more?


Receive a Free, No Hassle, No-Obligation Survey and Price Quote and a factory-trained Acorn Stairlifts Surveyor will measure your stairs, explain all the options available, and answer any questions you may have, in Acorn Service Areas*.

How Much Does an Acorn Stairlift Cost?

Because every staircase is different and each person's requirements differ, Acorn Stairlifts will design your stairlift especially for you based on your individual staircase dimensions, unique specifications and options that will suit your needs and budget. Because of this, it would be misleading to quote a stairlifts cost price on our website.

 

The following are some factors that can affect the stairlifts prices:

  • Are stairs straight or curved?

  • Bends in the staircase

  • Distance your stair lift will travel

  • Number of steps on the stairs

  • Landings at top, middle and bottom of the staircase

  • Stair lift features and options required for your needs

  • Width of the stair steps

 

Once your staircase has been surveyed, you will be given your own free, no-obligation written quotation. It is then entirely your decision - in your own time - to decide whether an Acorn Stairlift is right for you.

At Acorn, your safety and independence is the priority. Acorn is here to help anyone who is struggling with their stairs regain freedom and independence. Why not call one of our friendly, experienced advisors at 800-259-0370 for a Free, No Hassle, No-Obligation Survey and Price Quote and a factory-trained Acorn Stairlifts surveyor will measure your stairs, explain all the options available, and answer any questions you may have, in Acorn Service Areas*.

Acorn Stairlifts - Give Your Life a Lift and Enjoy the Home you Love.

Introduction by Dr Hilary Jones

 

At Acorn we want to make sure that you get the perfect stairlift solution for your needs. With this in mind we asked Dr Hilary Jones for his professional medical advice. The Doctor has produced a handy buying guide and a DVD to watch at your leisure, which we know will help you make the correct choice when investing in an Acorn Stairlift.

 

"Your home is a cherished part of your life: a place to welcome your family and friends, to entertain, enjoy and simply relax. It is the perfect place for you. It is a simple truth that staying in your own home gives you a wonderful feeling of independence. The freedom to move around easily and without fuss makes all the difference. So, why let getting up and down your stairs stop you from having a fully independent lifestyle? With a tailor-made Acorn Stairlift you can stay in your home, and continue to enjoy your independence."

‘Staying in your own home gives you a wonderful feeling of independence’.

What kind of staircase do you have?

 

Because every staircase is different, Acorn Stairlifts have been developed to be highly adaptable. Whatever type of staircase you have in your home, straight or curved, Acorn can provide the perfect solution for your needs.

 

The Acorn Straight Stairlift

Acorn’s 130 Straight Stairlift takes advantage of a single rail fitted to your staircase. Acorn’s slimline design means maximum space saving efficiency on your staircase, leaving plenty of room for the rest of your family to make use of the stairs.

 

The Acorn Curved Stairlift

Many staircases have turns, landings, or limited space at the top or bottom. Where this is the case it is often necessary for a curved stairlift to be used. The Acorn 180 Curved Stairlift uses a unique modular system. Precise measurements are used to create an expertly engineered stairlift rail which when installed, will follow your staircase to the millimeter. Even the most complex staircase can be accommodated and next day delivery is available on request.

Dr Hilary Jones’ Guide to buying your stairlift

 

We asked Dr Hilary Jones what he thought was important to consider when buying a stairlift and what key benefits you should be looking out for. He has made a handy guide for you to follow to help you make the correct choice. 

 

1. It is vital that your stairlift has safety sensors which automatically cut off power to the lift when the sensors are activated.
2. Make life easy for yourself by choosing a model with a swivel seat; it’s a real help.
3. Always opt for a stairlift that begins to travel and stops with such smoothness that you hardly even notice.
4. Some stairlifts offer smoother rides than others. Make sure yours gives a gentle gliding ride every time.
5. DC power means that in the event of a power cut your stairlift won’t shudder to a halt, but continues safely to the end of your journey.
6. A remote control allows you to simply call and send the stairlift, so that if a friend or partner should wish to use the lift, you can send it back to them once you’ve used it.
7. A simple switch or paddle control makes operating your stairlift simplicity itself, with no fuss or fiddling about.
8. A safety belt gives one extra measure towards peace of mind.
9. Look for a stairlift that has a digital display, this will allow you to diagnose any simple faults that may occur.
 
‘If you or your loved ones have difficulty with the stairs
then a stairlift can make a ‘huge difference’ to your life’.
