Choosing a proper stairlift for your home is crucial for maintaining safety and accessibility. Stairlifts are mobility aids that help individuals with mobility impairments navigate stairs safely and comfortably.
A proper stairlift should be selected based on the specific needs of the individual using it. Factors to consider when choosing a stairlift include the type of stairs, the user’s physical abilities, and the weight capacity of the lift.
In addition, it is important to consider the features and options available, such as the ability to adjust the seat height, the speed of the lift, and the ease of use of the controls.
By selecting a proper stairlift, individuals can improve their mobility, reduce the risk of falls, and maintain their independence in their own homes. It is important to consult with a professional to ensure that the stairlift is installed correctly and meets all safety standards.

Parents stairlift stopped working after recent powercut. My father totally reliant on it. Rang Richard on bank holiday Monday evening, he came out next day and got it sorted. Have no hesitation in recomnending him. A most reliable, efficient and amicable gentleman.
I was just recovering from a hip replacement when I broke my opposite ankle in 3 places. Richard came out immediately when I contacted him and 2 days later installed a refurbished stair lift for me at a very affordable price as I was under 65 and not entitled to any grant. He took only 4 hours to install it and it gave me back my freedom to stay, and to work from home
Richard came to repair our stairlift which is a lifesaver for my 83 yo mother. he was polite, professional, and did a wonderful job, i would recommend him and his company to anybody requiring this type of work.

You don’t have to be reminded that the cost of heating your home has increased and will increase further as we get towards winter months. Oil and gas will increase by another 47% if not more. Smokeless coal will be compulsory for all households. You will no longer be allowed burn turf or any fossil fuel.
In a recent survey carried out we asked households who installed a stove had they seen savings in heating their homes, within 5 months. In the survey users stated that they noticed that heat was been retained in the rooms and not blowing heat up the chimney, which was good for the environment.
It was also noticed that some restaurants and pubs had moved away from the open fire and now use stoves which saved substantially on the cost of heating the seating and dining area.
