A video about Acorn stairlifts and how they work

How much do stairlifts cost in Edinburgh?

The cost of a stairlift in Edinburgh can vary depending on a few factors, including the type of stairlift you want, the brand of stairlift, and any additional features. On average, a straight stairlift can cost anywhere from £2,000 to £5,000, while a curved stairlift can cost anywhere from £4,000 to £10,000.

A second hand stairlift or a used stairlift is typically 30% – to 50% cheaper than a new one.

However, it’s worth noting that some individuals may be eligible for financial assistance through the Disabled Facilities Grant, which can cover some or all of the cost of a stairlift, depending on the individual’s financial situation and the recommendations of an occupational therapist. You can also contact the Edinburgh local authority or council to see what other support is available.  

Regarding installation, most reputable stairlift companies, like Acorn, will include installation as part of the overall cost. A specialist engineer will usually do this. Also, most stairlift installations can be completed with minimal disruption to the home, typically within a few hours.

Range of stairlifts available in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas

There is a wide range of stairlifts to choose from. Some of the options are set out below.

A refurbished stairlift means they’re lifts that have been used before and then refurbished by Acorn to a high standard. This is usually the most cost-effective option.

Outdoor stairlifts have been specially designed for external use, great for gardens with multiple levels or steep inclines.

Acorn’s advisors can advise you on the most suitable option for your situation; for example, you may require a chair that has to be weather resistant or must take a particular weight.

A reconditioned stairlift is a pre-owned one that has been refurbished to meet the same safety and performance standards as a brand-new one. These stairlifts are often cheaper than new models and can be a good option for those on a budget.

Reconditioned stairlifts are available for both narrow stairs and straight stairs, and can be a good solution for individuals who need a reliable stairlift but may not have the funds to purchase a new one.

When considering a reconditioned stairlift, it’s essential to ensure it has been thoroughly inspected and tested to meet all the necessary UK safety standards. Reputable stairlift companies, like Acorn will provide a warranty or guarantee for their reconditioned stairlifts, so be sure to ask about these options when getting a quote.

Can Acorn provide stairlift servicing in Edinburgh?

Stairlift servicing includes a range of maintenance and repair tasks designed to ensure that the stairlift remains reliable and safe for you. Acorn will offer regular maintenance servicing options, usually annually, to help keep the stairlift in good working condition.

During a stairlift servicing appointment, a trained technician / engineer will typically inspect and test all of the stairlift’s components, including the motor, the battery, and the safety features. The technician may also clean and lubricate certain parts to ensure that the stairlift operates smoothly.

If any issues are found during the servicing appointment, the technician may recommend some repair work to fix any problems. It’s essential to address any issues promptly to avoid any potential safety risks. Servicing will apply for all types of lifts, including those that might be fitted to narrow staircases.

In addition to the technical aspects of stairlift servicing and repairs, Acorn will also provide you with excellent customer service. This includes sending a friendly and knowledgeable person to service the stairlift and answering any user questions. The company should also be responsive to any concerns or issues that arise during the servicing process.

If you find that the lift is no longer needed or appropriate Acorn can arrange for a stairlift removal. This is because you may not need an unwanted stairlift.
