“I’ve been in the industry for over 22 years now and plan to stay here for many years to come. Why do I do it? Because I love the job satisfaction of being able to help a customer to become independent in their own home and enjoy going upstairs with ease again,” says Coral.
Colin adds, “I especially like tackling complicated curved staircases because they’re a challenge to survey and give me the opportunity to fit stairlifts in places that other companies can’t – often because it’s too complicated or they don’t think it will fit. The satisfaction I get from my job is in helping people of all ages and abilities to get up and down the stairs.”
Both Colin and Coral are qualified Trusted Product Advisors awarded by Assist UK.
