Stairlift service and support

Companion Stairlifts offers the highest quality products as well as first-class customer service. The equipment can be a lifeline for some people which means that it could be in constant use throughout the day. Once installed, it is worth taking the time to give your stairlift the appropriate maintenance and service to ensure it stays trouble-free and continues to provide you with the mobility support you need.

Stair lift maintenance

A stairlift can last for many years if it is well looked after and receives the proper care. While our friendly team of stair lift service and repair engineers are available to help fix any problems you may encounter, there are some things you can do at home to help ensure your equipment continues to run at its optimum performance.

Here are some tips to help keep your stairlift maintained and in top condition:

  • Make sure there isn’t anything blocking the rails on your stairlift.
  • Keep the rails as dust-free as you can by cleaning them with a dry cloth once a week. We also recommend using a hose attachment for a vacuum cleaner which can get to those hard-to-reach places.
  • If you are a pet owner, make sure the rails are kept clean of pet hair.
  • Don’t let anyone play on the stairlift or with the controls.
  • Don’t exceed the maximum weight limit of the stairlift.
  • Make sure your straight stairlift or curved stairlift is serviced regularly.

Stairlift repairs

With a new stairlift from Companion Stairlifts, there is no need to worry about stairlift repair costs. All stairlifts automatically come with a fully comprehensive 12-month warranty. As well as that, all parts and labour are included in the price of every stairlift so you can have peace of mind upon purchase.

You can also choose an extended warranty after that initial year warranty ends, which can be a cost-effective way to minimise repair prices. Companion Stairlifts offers the Standard Service Plan and the Premium Service Plan. Call the team on our free phone number, 0800 251 1308, to discuss your options or to talk about booking in for an annual service.

Stairlift servicing

It is recommended that stairlifts are serviced every 12 months. If you have a reconditioned stairlift or an older model, then getting it serviced more frequently is recommended, especially if the equipment is used every day.

Our trained lift engineers have a multitude of experience in stairlift repairs and stairlift servicing, so will be able to assist you and advise you in any way possible.

Stairlift service cost

After the initial 12-month warranty period, stairlift service costs depend on the plan you choose. The standard service plan starts from £19.43 per month and includes:

  • Repair & replacement of all necessary component parts
  • Call out service
  • 24-hour stairlift service helpline
  • Free annual service inspection
  • Nationwide rapid response team of stairlift engineers

Our Premium service plan offers even more benefits to take advantage of.
