Well over half-a-million Acorn Stairlifts have been installed for satisfied customers not just here in the UK, but around the world.

Our top quality British-made stairlifts are shipped to more than 80 countries so that somewhere in the world an Acorn Stairlift is installed every eight minutes. We like to say that an Acorn Stairlift will "give your life a lift" and we know from the comments our customers give us that it's true.

Some people need a stairlift urgently and we have consistently the fastest response times in the industry. Even with more complex curved stairlifts, we can install a tailor-made solution in just a few days after a customer inquiry thanks to our unique FastTrack® system. For other customers, installing a stairlift in their home is a more gradual decision, part of planning to meet their needs now and for the future.

In either case we've learned from our customers that there are countless ways an Acorn Stairlift can give your life a lift. Here are just five of the main ones:

Struggle and strife. As the old song goes: "Is the struggle and strife we find in this life really worthwhile after all?" Many of our customers soldier on long after their stairs become a daily struggle. One of the things we hear most often from our customers is: "I just wish I'd done it sooner!"

At a single stroke an Acorn Stairlift will do away with the struggle, and sometimes pain or breathlessness, of having to go up and down the stairs. Even if you don't use it every time, it's there when you need it. And you might also find that the effort and energy wasted on climbing the stairs could be put to better use elsewhere.

Safe and secure: If you're not as mobile as you once were, the stairs might not be just a struggle, they could be a danger too. Of all the places in your home to have a trip or fall, the stairs are the worst. It's not just the strength in your arms and legs that can be an issue. Many of our customers wisely invest in a stairlift because climbing the stairs can make them breathless and light-headed.

Avoiding unnecessary risks is one of the keys to maintaining good health, especially as you get older. Contrast the potential dangers of your stairs to the experience of sitting on your Acorn Stairlift, fastening the safety belt and then, at the touch of a switch, gliding smoothly and effortlessly upstairs. For safety's sake, a stairlift makes sense.

Stress-free families: It's not just you who will benefit from your stairlift – your family will find it a relief too. Many of our customers invest in an Acorn Stairlift not for their own use, but for a loved one, perhaps a parent or a husband or wife.

So many of these customers tell us they no longer have the constant worry that their loved one might come to grief on the stairs. Others tell us they just enjoy seeing how much easier it has made their loved one's daily life. Sometimes it takes someone who cares to know what's best for us.

Safeguard your self-reliance: "One of the worst things about getting older is having to rely on other people to help you with things that used to be easy." That's another thing we hear all the time, whether it's wrestling off a stubborn jar lid or trimming your toenails. But there are lots of home aids that will help you with these tasks, and climbing the stairs safely is no different.

With an Acorn Stairlift installed you can retain your independence. Why rely on others to see you up and down the stairs when you can make your own way in comfort and safety? With a stairlift you can single-handedly take control of life's ups and downs!

Stay put and sleep sound: Moving house later in life and leaving the home you love is an unsettling and expensive ordeal you can well do without. Yet that's what some of our customers were facing before an Acorn Stairlift provided a better solution. If the combination of reduced mobility and stairs means your home is no longer as 'user-friendly', there's no need to consider moving to a bungalow or flat, or restricting your life to just one floor of your home.

A stairlift eliminates the obstacle of stairs and means you can continue to enjoy all of your home, upstairs and downstairs, and sleep sound in your own bedroom. And don't assume your stairs are too narrow, steep, winding or awkward for a stairlift. After installing more than half-a-million, you can bet there isn't a staircase situation we haven't encountered before!

These are just a few of the ways an Acorn Stairlift can give your life a lift, and it can be more affordable than you might think. For more information and to organise a free, no-obligation survey and quote, give us a call today on 0800 073 9775.
