Stairlifts in Sunderland

Sunderland is a port city in the North East of England and it was renowned for its coal mining, shipbuilding and engineering industries. However, due to its digital transformation, the city was recently named the Smart City of the Year in 2020 as a result.

If you live in Sunderland and you suffer from mobility problems and you need a stairlift, here at Handicare we have a range of straight stairlifts, curved models and reconditioned stairlifts. No matter what your needs are, there is a model that will be able to help you or a loved one around your home safely. Read on to find out more about the different models you can purchase and why we are regarded as one of the top stairlifts suppliers in the country.

Straight Stairlifts Sunderland

Homes in the UK have very different types of staircases, but many properties have a straight staircase. If your home has this type of staircase, then you will need a straight stairlift installed to take you or a loved one up and down your stairs.

The engineers who will come to your house will offer you expert advice and will be able to advise you on the type of straight stairlift they would recommend for your home as each model has slightly different attributes.

There is a Perch Straight Stairlift, which is the ideal model for somebody who finds it difficult sitting down and getting back to their feet. The Age Co 1000 Series is not only battery-powered meaning it has a smooth reliable movement, but it has a battery backup in the event of a power cut as well as a manual swivel seat. The Age Co 1100 Stairlift is a model which is powered by Handicare’s patented four-wheel drive technology with four silent and reliable motors. The 1100 model is also ultra-slim and compact so it can be placed close to the wall.

Curved Stairlifts Sunderland

Many properties have a curved or spiral staircase and for homes such as this, you will need to purchase a curved stairlift. Handicare has a wide range of models that you can choose from and before you purchase your model of choice, the Handicare customer service team will offer you free no-obligation advice to help you choose the best model for your needs.

Our expert team at Handicare will come to your home and take measurements of your staircase to ensure that you find the perfect solution for you. The expert team of engineers from Handicare will then come to your property to fit the model you have picked, and our advisors can help with any questions you may have after installation.

Due to some curved stairlifts being narrower than others and some having multiple bends, there is a wide range of models you can choose from. The Perched Curved Stairlift is the best option for people who are unable to sit down, whilst the Freecurve Stairlift model can fit on the narrowest of stairs and navigate the tightest bends as a result of its single, tubular rail. The Age Co 4000 Series is a model that can travel around 90 and 180-degree bends and with two handheld remote controls it means other users can use the lift at the push of a button.

Reconditioned Stairlifts Sunderland

Buying a new stairlift can be expensive and if you are on a budget, a cheaper alternative is to purchase one of the reconditioned stairlifts from the Handicare range.

All of the reconditioned stairlifts from Handicare are checked and must pass the latest safety and reliability standards that a new stairlift has to go through. You can purchase both straight or curved reconditioned stairlifts from our range and there is even a price match promise on offer, meaning if you find a reconditioned stairlift for cheaper we will match that price.

Stairlift Servicing in Sunderland

Once your stairlift of choice has been installed, Handicare’s friendly team will be with you every step of the way should you have any queries. This includes servicing your stairlift as overtime models can become worn and will need to be checked by an engineer.

At Handicare we advise that a new stairlift is checked over once a year and a reconditioned model is checked every six months. It is vital that a stairlift is working properly, especially if someone within your household relies on it to get upstairs.
