Straight Stairlift Installation

As the name suggests, a straight stairlift will run on a straight flight of stairs. This type of lift is generally cheaper to purchase as they are less complicated to install, giving you the freedom of your house again. As part of our stairlift services, I specialise in the installation, repair and maintenance of straight stairlifts for clients in Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford and throughout the province of Cork and Munster.

If you need help, I can recommend an appropriate lift for your property, whether you are looking for reconditioned stairlifts or a brand new model. The versatile nature of straight stairlifts allows users to easily move their lifts to another location should the need arise.

Having been in the Stairlift business 28yrs, I know the importance of getting a quality and reliable stairlifts at the right price. upWARDs Lifts has chosen not to have numerous stairlift manufacturers and models to choose from but to stand by and work alongside one manufacturer. upWARDs Lifts is delighted to associate with and partner with Platinum Stairlifts. All Platinum Stairlifts are hand built and tested in Yorkshire, UK ready to ship directly to you.

One of the main benefits of a Platinum Straight Stairlift is that the rail runs off the stair noses. This gives a clean look and gives you the ability to access your stairs easily when vacuuming. Contact upWARDs Lifts today for a brochure and your FREE survey.

upWARDs Lifts’ close association with Platinum Stairlifts means that not only are you getting the right premium quality stairlift for you but at a price that is competitive. All new stairlifts come with 3 year warranty with annual service and backed up with genuine 24/7 call out should you need it.

Curved Stairlift Installation

You may think that a stairlift will not fit your stairs. However, a curved stairlift can be fitted on a variety of staircase types, ranging from fan, stairs with a landing in between, and those with a turn. Each curved stairlift is custom made to fit your staircase. I design every lift to match the requirements of your property and also offer a comprehensive repair and maintenance service for curved stairlifts in Cork and throughout Munster.

As a curved stairlift specialist with over 25 years’ genuine stairlift experience, I am available to conduct comprehensive surveys of your staircase before recommending the most suitable lift for your property depending on its layout and your requirements.

Contact upWARDs Lifts today for your FREE no obligation survey. Curved stairlifts only vary in price due to the number of bends that are required and the length of your stairs. upWARDs Lifts will instantly tell you the cost, there is no hidden formula or wide ranging prices. upWARDs Lifts works closely with its chosen partner, Platinum Stairlifts to bring you a premium stairlift at a competitive price.

The cost includes 2 x remote controls, 3 year warranty with annual servicing and genuine 24/7 emergency response should it be required. upWARDs Lifts is open 24/7 and does not operate solely in office hours. I am open when you need me.

Reconditioned Straight Stairlifts

As part of my stairlift services, a reconditioned or second hand stairlift can be sourced depending on your type of stairs. All stairlifts supplied by me will come with a 1 warranty and a guaranteed 24 hour call out.

Reconditioned stairlifts are generally not suitable for curved staircases as the rail is designed for the original set of stairs. Re-cutting and bending a rail to suit another staircase can be a dangerous practice. In rare cases, some stairlifts can be moved providing the properties/steps are identical.

Should you purchase or be gifted a stairlift from elsewhere, I can install this providing it is up to standard. As with all purchases, please be buyer aware. I have come across many stairlifts that are highly unsuitable and dangerous for the chosen flight of stairs. Stairlifts may appear easy to install, but there are certain hazards that an inexperienced installer may overlook, such as the length of rail, insufficient/poorly fitted rail brackets/fittings, missing safe edges etc.

With my extensive knowledge and experience in the stairlift sector, I can help you find the best stairlift to suit your requirements.

Housing Adaptation Grant

You may need a stairlift as getting around your house is not as easy as it once was but you are worried about the cost. If this is the case, the Mobility Aid Grants Scheme might be the way to pay for the stairlift services you need.

The Mobility Aids Grant Scheme provides grants for works designed to address mobility problems in the home, such as the purchase and installation of a stairlift. The scheme is primarily for older people, but people with a disability can also apply.

When you apply for the Mobility Aids Grant Scheme, you are awarded up to €6000 towards the cost of your stairlift. upWARDs Lifts help property owners in Cork and throughout Munster complete housing adaptations by installing stairlifts that have been approved as part of a housing adaptation grant.
