Straight starlifts are designed for a single flight of stairs that ascend in a straight line, with no curves, bends, landings or other obstructions. Before any installation a survey would be completed.
Curved stairlifts are made to navigate trickier routes upstairs. They are required where there is at least one bend, or in the event that the staircase has a landing between levels. Before any installation a survey would be completed.
Where budgets may be limited we offer the option of a reconditioned system. The lead time for installation may prove quicker than that of new lift. The rail is remanufactured to suit your stairs. The seat and carriage are reconditioned as may be necessary and if required, the upholstery is replaced. All reconditioned lift systems are supplied with a full warranty. Before any installation a survey would be completed.

When I had a knee operation last year, I knew that I would struggle to get upstairs to my bedroom. I spoke to Shire Mobility before the operation and they helped me pick a stairlift that was suitable for my home. They dealt with everything, from advice to installation. I am very pleased, and would recommend them to anyone. Jeff Williams
My mother is a widower in her late 70s who lives alone. She had a number of falls last winter, but refused to move into a downstairs bedroom. Eventually, we decided to get her a stairlift – but I was nervous about the cost. Shire helped me find a reconditioned model in top condition. Now my mum has the full run of her house again, and I can stop worrying! Thank you. Sue Davison
At Shire, we pride ourselves not only on the quality of our products, installation, and maintenance services, but also on our ability to help people make informed decisions about what is right for them. When people are looking to buy a stairlift, they often have questions. Below, we answer the three most common – but if you have a difference enquiry, please contact us via our contact form. We’re always happy to help.
Q. I’m worried my home is not suitable for a stairlift Most homes can accommodate either a straight or curved stairlift, depending on the staircase in question. Stairlifts can fit in widths as small as 640mm, although larger users will, of course, need larger space. If you really want to know whether your home is suitable for a stairlift, it is always best to have a professional survey done by the Shire team.
Q. Do stairlifts use a lot of electricity? Stairlifts use as little as 0.024kWh – far less than almost any appliance in your home, so you don’t have to worry about expanding bills or carbon footprints!
Q. What is the best stairlift? The one which works for you! There are a number of providers out there who specialise in high quality products, and we can work with any of them. However, the “gold standard” will be different for each person depending on their individual needs. This is another reason that the best course of action is to have a professional survey done by the Shire team.
