It’s vitally important that your stairlift is serviced annually, by a qualified stairlift engineer, to make sure that it is safe for you to use as recommended by British Safety Standards.
By having your lift serviced, you can benefit from:
★ making sure it’s “stairworthy”
★ that it’s safe for you to use
★ Preventative maintenance
★ Possibly reducing unnecessary callouts and inconvenience
★ May prolong the lifespan of your stairlift
Just like a service on your car, your lift should be checked to make sure it drives safely, that all the bolts are tightened, that the safety circuits are working properly and that any worn parts are replaced before they cause a breakdown acting as preventative maintenance.
In fact we have a 24 point checklist that we’ll go through as approved by British Safety Standards to make sure your lift is serviced correctly. We go way beyond a “clipboard service” and we’ll also bring our tools in to take the covers off your lift and check inside to make sure everything is okay for you. As part of this check, we will also test the batteries in your lift to see if they are working at full capacity, so you won’t get stuck with flat stairlift batteries.
We also service lifts that we didn’t originally install.
