Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions which are often asked to us by our customers.
How will other occupants of the house get past it? “The stairlifts available these days are slim in design and foldable. You can fold away the chair and footrest when the stairlift is not in use. When folded the stairlift will occupy only around 300-350mm (depending on the model you use). Now, this allows for adequate space for people to move up and down the stairs.
The precise delivery time will depend on the model chosen. The time may vary from twenty four hours to fourteen days for straight stairs. Curved stairlift delivery may take up to six weeks.
The trained professionals at Stairlifts Hastings will ensure quick installation. They will engage in pre-installation checks and make preparations ahead of time. The task is undertaken by experts with minimal disruption and inconvenience. The entire process will take only 1-2 hours for straight stairlifts.

Yes. In fact we receive numerous calls of this nature from clients who are not satisfied with their original stairlift installer or are unable to get aftercare support from them and would prefer to have Stairlifts Hastings look after their stairlift maintenance.
Yes. However, you should consider consulting with an experienced accountant or tax consultant on tax benefits you may be entitled to. A prescription from a health care practitioner will waive the sales tax.
- The first feature to consider is the shape of the stairlift, which will depend on your staircase and whether it is straight or contains any bends, curves or landings.
- A straight stairlift would be cheaper to install than a curved one, as this would probably have to be made specifically to measure your staircase. Stairlifts Hastings would be able to advise you on this aspect of the installation.
- Once you have established that, the next consideration might be the type of seat and this would depend largely on your degree of mobility. Are you able to bend your knees sufficiently in order to travel in a seated position? A swivel seat is a good idea, as this will assist you in getting on and off the seat.
- Are you dexterous enough to operate a remote control? If not a joystick, situated on the arm of the seat, might be best.
- You need not worry about scheduling a week or two for installation, as this would normally take no longer than a day, perhaps less.
- There is no need to worry about any extra alterations or building work as the stairlift rail fits onto the staircase and not onto the wall. There will therefore be no need to replace any wallpaper or repaint any areas of the walls.
- If you have a fitted carpet this need not be removed. The rail for the stairlift will fit over the top of the carpet.
- Stairlift chairs come in an assortment of colours so that you should be able to choose one that blends in with your decor.
