The importance of stairlift servicing

You’ve probably heard the term ‘prevention is better than the cure’ and when it comes to stairlifts that’s exactly right.

Once installed, stairlifts become integral to many people’s lives providing independence and freedom within the home. It is therefore essential that they continue to operate correctly for the duration of their lifespan so there is no downtime for the user. A small issue could mean the difference of being able to get to your bedroom or not for the night. The good news is that the possibility of common issues occurring can be dramatically reduced by proper, timely servicing.

A stairlift is made up of many moving components that wear over time. Typically, they can be used multiple times a day so it’s important that maintenance is scheduled to ensure all parts and components are working as they should be. These checks are important as they’ll find any weak or worn components before they cause a more serious issue. If you’ve invested in a stairlift you should want to get the best value for money you can, keeping up with servicing plays an important role in this. Typically, we’d recommend annual servicing if you bought a stairlift new or 6-month intervals If you have a reconditioned stairlift.

It may be tempting to neglect servicing whilst the stairlift is operating correctly however it’s a small price to pay to prevent a small fault turning into a more serious, costly problem. Here’s that saying again – “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

There are also plenty of things you can do to ensure your stairlift stays in tip top condition. You can read our guide here.
