Our team of engineers will never charge more than what we first quoted unless the client chooses to make any further alterations or additions. 

Our Handicare Stairlift Range

We are dedicated to stocking top-quality mobility technology, which is why our customers have access to leading models of stairlifts from UK manufacturers Handicare – namely, the Handicare 1000 and Handicare 1100 – to suit every straight staircase. 

These strong, sleek, and sturdy stairlifts are incredibly customisable with a wide range of seating and upholstery styles, boasting one of the slimmest stairlift rails on the market. 

Both models are built to improve your quality of life, enjoying a range of features, including simple, ergonomic controls, a choice of seats, and industry-leading safety features to ensure you are always in secure hands. Each one is certified by the international stairlift safety standard EN 81-40, so you can use it reliably and safely for many years to come.


The Handicare 1000

For those concerned about installing a stairlift cutting into precious free space on an alright tight staircase, the Handicare 1000 is the perfect addition to your home. Its lightweight, slimline aluminium track has a hidden rack with two park points at the top and bottom of the stairs.

  • Convenient charging solutions mean you’ll never be left with a flat battery.
  • Smart Seat is standard, providing a sturdy and resilient place to sit while going up and down stairs. 
  • Choice of six easy-to-clean upholstery colours specifically designed to suit the interior of your home; this will fit seamlessly into the flow of your staircase. 
  • Optional powered hinge; your doorway or landing will be free of obstructions.
  • Additional Perch seat – should you need extra help, this additional feature helps the user sit comfortably if they have mobility issues in their knees or hips.

For further space conservation, Handicare 1000 also comes with a manual fold-away footrest, arms, and seat, allowing other users to navigate the staircase.

The Handicare 1100

Another option for people seeking an effective mobility aid for their straight staircase is the Handicare 1100, which boasts the slimmest and strongest rail available on the market. With its compact and sleek design, custom seat potential, and upholstery options, 1100 fits into any home seamlessly – even on narrow stairs.

  • Ultra-slim rail, which can be installed close to the wall by our excellent engineers.
  • Manual-folding seats, footrests, and armrests, this model is the most sought-after solution for people looking to maintain the flow of their home while navigating difficult stairs quickly and easily. 
  • Seat can also swivel at the top of your staircase to help you get on and off safely.
  • Features safety sensors as standard, which will stop the stairlift when it comes in contact with an obstruction.

Thanks to its patented design, the Handicare 1100 does not need a toothed rack to run smoothly. Unlike other stairlifts, it doesn’t leave oil or greasy residue on the rail, making it simple to clean and safe to touch.

Straight Stairlift FAQs

How do I know if I need a straight stairlift?

Straight stairlifts are suitable for staircases where there isn’t a bend or landing present. Typically, most houses in the UK have a straight staircase. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure – one of our friendly stairlift experts will be able to assess your needs properly when we carry out a survey.

You can choose from our models by evaluating your needs – do you need an indoor or outdoor stairlift? What is your budget? What are your mobility requirements, and how often will you need to use the stair lift? How many people use the stairlift?

Both have different purposes; a manual swivel seat requires you to manually rotate the seat at the top or bottom of the stairs to exit the stairlift safely. Not an ideal option for those with limited upper body strength, but generally a more cost-effective option. 

A powered swivel seat is an automatic seat that allows you to effortlessly rotate the seat with the push of a button, eliminating the need for manual effort. Perfect for those with limited mobility that need that extra help.

If your staircase is too narrow to fit a conventional stairlift, don’t worry – we’ve got options for you:

  • Compact stairlifts – Compact or slimline models are designed to take up as little space as you need them to. Some stairlifts are compact by design; others can be made to be compact. 
  • Perch seats – An additional option with our Handicare 1000, a perch seat is a standing stairlift option. Not only is it a space-saving option, but also suited for those who have difficulty bending their knees. 
  • Alternating Tread Stairlifts – or space-saving stairlifts, specially made for extremely narrow spaces. Instead of a traditional seat, it features alternating treads that provide a stable walking surface with built-in handrails, allowing the user to navigate the stairs in a controlled manner.

Absolutely! All of our models come with a fantastic range of colours, textures and shapes of upholstery – from fiery red to muted browns, traditional leather or modern fabrics. You choose – download our brochure today to browse through the different options.

Brand new stairlifts can cost, on average, between £1,600 and £2,800 – stair lift prices vary depending on customisation, such as added features like outdoor functions. Reconditioned stairlifts are a good way to save money on your mobility aid – you can even opt for a rental stairlift if you need it short term only. 

The NHS doesn’t directly aid you in buying a stair lift – however, they can refer you to a local council or organisation that can help you to buy a stairlift. 

Unfortunately, no – there is a type of stairlift for every home, but it isn’t one size fits all. Straight stair lifts are great options for straight staircases and narrow spaces. Following your home survey, your engineer will advise you on the best options for you – maybe a straight stairlift isn’t for you, but we have a fantastic range of stair lift solutions to choose from. 

Should you need further customisation or worry about your modern stair lift encroaching into the flow of your straight stairs, our engineers will be more than happy to discuss further space-saving features, such as easy hinges or adding a slide rack.

You can get your stairlift fitted in as little as 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the stairlift installation. Complex installation cases can take 6 hours – your engineer will always tell you an approximate time based on their knowledge and experience. 

Running a stairlift is actually incredibly low cost compared to other household appliances. On average, it takes 0.024 and 0.33 kWh of electricity per hour to run a stairlift, which is around £0.01 per hour.

We specialise across the UK and throughout the Midlands, Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, and beyond, with teams stationed in the following locations:

What Our Customers Say


The quality of this company is incredible. I enquired about a stairlift for my grandma and the lift was fitted the next day! I couldn’t believe the timely manner and quality of product. The engineer was polite, easy to speak to and made my grandma feel very safe and secure. She is now safe and that alone is enough reason to recommend this company. Couldn’t recommend enough. Great value for money, great service. All around great.

Excellent service from start to finish. They definitely went the extra mile to ensure we had the best stairlift to meet my husband’s needs. They waited to meet up with the Occupational Therapists who were assessing the suitability and safety of the lift. I cannot praise them enough. Thank you.
