Support for stairlift and homelift customers during the COVID-19 pandemic

Following your enquiry we will conduct as much communication as possible by phone, video link or email to ensure we spend minimal time at your home. We may even be able to complete a full assessment for your stairlift without having to visit you.

For customers already with a stairlift, we are following government COVID-19 secure guidance along with guidance from our trade associations, the BHTA and LEIA, with regard to routine maintenance visits:

We are taking extensive measures to protect both our customers and our employees, including rigorous risk assessments and following COVID-19 secure protocols for customer visits.

We will continue to monitor developments daily and amend our working practices to take account of the latest advice. We recognise the vital assistance our products offer and so please be assured that we will continue to balance the need to support you, our customers, with the need to protect our staff and observe government instructions.
