Moving a used straight stairlift:

  • If your stairlift is fairly new and is a straight stairlift fitting it to a similar straight stairs is the most feasible and economical option.

  • In this instance a new rail can be easily cut to suit the new staircase. Able Plus offer this service for a reasonable fee.

  • Where the stairlift is an older model relocation may not be possible as stairlifts suffer wear and tear when not serviced (and maintained) properly.

  • We are happy to advise if a stairlift is suitable for relocation with no obligation (or fee).

  • If the stairlift is ten years old or older there is far less chance that it may be serviceable enough to move. In this case it is important to use qualified tradesmen or stairlift specialists to remove the lift.

Moving a used curved stairlift:

  • Moving a curved stairlift to a new stairs is much more expensive than moving a straight stairlift.

  • A new custom rail must be built to suit the new stairs in order to move a curved stairlift.

  • A curved stairlift that is moved to a new location and uses an old curved rail built for another location will not be insured.
