The general lifespan of a well-looked after stairlift is roughly 10 years.

However, there are several factors that can have a big impact on your stairlift, including:

  • Weight
  • General wear and tear
  • The natural incline of your staircase
  • Frequent use.

However, you should get in the habit of caring for your stairlift through semi-regular maintenance check-ups and servicing to make sure everything is running smoothly.

This will help you get the most out of your mobility solution while keeping on top of any potential problems, so you can identify them and get them sorted quickly.

Some checks you can do ahead of time include:

  • Damage or dirt and debris stuck in the machine
  • Checking that all the screws are tight and snug – but only do this when the machine is off!
  • Ensuring your batteries are charging when on the stand
  • Problems with the stairlift lagging

If you think you’ve got an issue with your stairlift, give one of our team members a call.

We’ll be able to get someone out to you quickly to give it a proper inspection, checking that everything is in working order to get everything back up and running – with you back on the move.
