Rental & Reconditioned

Reconditioned stairlifts come with the same quality assurance, for both straight and curved staircases. A pre-owned Stannah stairlift will always be tested rigorously by our team of engineers, and will only receive the Stannah reconditioned badge when it meets our own exacting standards of quality and safety. That’s why you can be certain, that when a refurbished Stannah stairlift is installed in your home, it is every bit as good as a new one – after all, it still has the Stannah family name on it.

Our rental scheme enables you to have all the benefits of a new or reconditioned Stannah stairlift, while paying for it one month at a time. We even offer rental on curved stairlifts. You won’t have to worry about servicing or costs as we take care of that and when you don’t need it any more we’ll come and remove it.

My lift is proving a great success and help. Thank you to all your team in the making and especially to Chris Wilcox for fitting and installing it in my home.

Stairlift features

Easy to use controls

Our simple intuitive controls have been designed for those with less dexterity. Positioned on either arm, they work with the lightest of touches, and can be operated using your hand, arm or wrist.

Convenience and safety

A seatbelt that can be fastened with one hand is just one of the many features of the Starla. Also included are pressure sensitive edges that bring the stairlift to a gentle stop if the stairlift is obstructed and removable keys to immobilise the stairlift if required.

A stairlift to suit you

The Starla can be tailored to your specific needs and taste. Choose from different trims, upholstery options and even rail colours to ensure the stairlift fits with your decor. Additional features such as powered swivel seats and different style seatbelts are also available.

Footrest fold, designed for comfort

Bending down to lift the footrest is an unnecessary inconvenience, which is why the Starla comes with a manual lever as standard on the curved product or a seat-to-footrest link on the straight product. Alternatively, there is an option to have an automatic footrest fold button for ultimate convenience.

Battery powered for peace of mind

All our stairlifts are powered by rechargeable batteries so that even in the event of a powercut you stairlift will continue to operate for multiple return journeys.

Swivel seat for easier exit

All our seats come with either a manual or power swivel option that allows you to swivel your seat at the top of the stairs to enable you to get off facing the landing and get back on again safely.
