Acorn Stairlifts is celebrating 25 years in business, during which we have grown to become the world’s biggest company focused solely on the manufacture, sale, installation and maintenance of home stairlifts.

We are the number one selling stairlift in America and proud to say that somewhere in the world, an Acorn Stairlift is installed every eight minutes, giving someone else’s life a lift.
Many components go into making our award-winning stairlifts, but the most important of all is the customer, the person who will use it. Right from the start, we have learned to listen to our customers, actively seek feedback, and use it to drive the continual evolution and improvement of our stairlifts.
Over the past 25 years, we have identified the main benefits of owning an Acorn Stairlift from the feedback of our customers:
“I feel safe on the stairs again” – So many of our customers see this as the biggest single benefit, having previously worried about having an accident on the stairs. There are many conditions which can put you at risk on the stairs, from painful, stiff joints and declining muscle strength to those which leave you feeling dizzy, out of breath or light-headed through physical exertion. For anyone worried about their safety on the stairs, an Acorn Stairlift is an investment in accident prevention.
“I can go up and downstairs whenever I want” – As the stairs become a struggle, many people begin restricting how often they use them, planning their day around the times they need to go upstairs, or even beginning to live in one level of their home. An Acorn Stairlift removes the obstacle of the stairs, allowing you to go up and down the stairs as many times each day as you like, in safety and comfort.
“I’ve got the rest of my home back again” – As mentioned above, some people get to the point that they can no longer manage the stairs, so instead they may adapt to living downstairs, perhaps converting a dining room to a bedroom and installing a downstairs bathroom. But why deny yourself the use of the entire the home you love? Installing an Acorn Stairlift gives you back the full use of your home.
“I’ve got my independence back”–  One of the things people worry most about as they get older or become less mobile is losing their sense of independence. It’s only natural that we come to rely on help from others and loved ones are usually only too happy to give it, but no one wants to feel they are becoming a burden. If you no longer feel safe climbing the stairs alone, you might need physical support from your spouse, another family member or caregiver. Owning an Acorn Stairlift means you can use the stairs with only the assistance of a machine designed especially for the job, and which is always there, ready and waiting, whenever you need it. An added bonus is the peace of mind your loved ones will enjoy, knowing you can use the stairs in safety and comfort, without the risk of a fall.
“I have more energy for the things I really want to do” – Even if you can still manage the stairs with difficulty, why waste your precious energy on this when there are so many other things you could save it for? Many of our customers soldier on, sometimes for years, before choosing to invest in an Acorn Stairlift. One piece of customer feedback we hear all the time is “I only wish I’d done it sooner!”. Why prolong the battle? Once released from the daily struggle on the stairs, many people feel less fatigued and more inclined to do other activities which bring them enjoyment and satisfaction. There’s also the mental relief of never having to worry about climbing the stairs again… just imagine that!
