Are You in a Time Crunch? We are Here to Help!

12:00am & Lifestyle

Many people who need a stairlift need it urgently, and this is where Acorn Stairlifts are ahead of the curve.

Imagine something happened which meant you suddenly couldn’t climb the stairs in your home – perhaps a fall or other accident, which impaired your mobility, or maybe while recovering from an operation or illness. How would you manage? You might have to set up a bedroom and a bathroom on the first floor, turning your home upside down. You might even have to stay in hospital longer than medically necessary if your home environment isn’t suited to your new needs.

If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of moving your home around or staying elsewhere, you could install an Acorn Stairlift, enabling you to glide up and down your stairs, safely and in comfort. It would get you through the short-term crisis, and be available whenever you needed it in the longer term, enhancing your quality of life and giving you peace of mind for the years ahead.

Many of our customers turn to us in a crisis, so the way we operate is built for speed. We can have a custom fit stairlift installed in your home just a few days after you contact us, even next day, if available.

The first step is for one of our Acorn surveyors to visit your home to discuss your needs and assess your staircase to determine what kind of stairlift is most suitable. Once we have all the necessary information it’s just a matter of installing your made-to-measure stairlift and, again, Acorn can do this quickly and without compromising quality. As with our surveyors, we also employ a network of skilled stairlift technicians across the US. Our installer vans are both mobile warehouses and workshops, stocked with everything we need to install our products on almost any type of staircase.

Other stairlift companies might be able to offer this speed of response with a basic straight stairlift, but Acorn can also do it with a more complex curved staircase, thanks to our unique and revolutionary FastTrack® system. A curved stairlift rail usually has to be individually designed and made in a factory before being shipped to your home – a process that can take several weeks – but not with Acorn.

FastTrack® is a modular rail system for curved stairlifts. It means our skilled installers can assemble a bespoke rail in your home using a selection of interlocking rail sections. Your home survey will determine exactly which sections are needed and our installer will fine-tune the rail to precisely follow the individual curves of your staircase.

This system – unique to Acorn – means our installation technicians can assemble your curved stairlift on site in just a few hours. And again, it can happen just days after you first contact us, or even next day if available.

When you buy from Acorn, you can be assured that your new stairlift will be manufactured by us, installed by us and maintained by us. Going forward, Acorn’s customer service department is staffed and ready to help, so you can enjoy peace of mind, knowing we are just a phone call away if you should ever need us.

So if life suddenly changes and the stairs you took for granted unexpectedly become an impossible obstacle, don’t panic. An Acorn Stairlift will help you get back to normal in no time at all.
