Do stairlifts need servicing? Yes, regular stairlift maintenance leads to fewer breakdowns and lower repair costs over time. Stairlifts are electrical/mechanical equipment that combines several moving parts and control systems. While most stairlifts are reliable they require special care to keep them running smoothly and increase the lifespan of parts. If your lift is essential to mobility you’ll want to keep it functioning like-new and extend its life with routine maintenance.
Extended Stairlift Warranties
Since we service and repair hundreds of lifts we see the most common issues to be general maintenance, adjustments and minor repairs. There are the occasions of larger malfunctions associated with lower quality lifts that provide for a shorter warranty period, typically one year and advise buying a higher quality lift that provides for a lifetime warranty in the beginning. An additional extended warranty should not be something that is needed, we do however recommend servicing and an annual inspection with general maintenance. All of our new stairlifts come with a manufactures lifetime parts warranty.
Many times we are able to save you a service call and answer basic troubleshooting problems over the phone with the help of fault codes displayed on your lift. Even if you have a problem with something like resetting an Acorn stairlift or have a question about why your lift is beeping we are here to help. These simple fixes can often save you the time and cost of a service call.

In some situations, a lift may be beyond repair, outdated or discontinued. While we’ll always do what we can to repair your lift there are times we’ll recommend an upgrade or replacement. If you’re already considering a new lift take a look at our straight and curved stairlifts.
