If you are considering a Bridgwater rental stairlift then look no further. We have a South West division and our engineer is based in Bridgwater. Steve is a very knowledgeable and friendly guy and knows the South West area like the back of his hand.
Getting A Bridgwater Rental Stairlift
To have a Bridgwater rental stairlift installed couldn’t be easier. We can arrange a convenient time to carry out an informal survey of your staircase. This is just to make sure that there are no obstructions or intrusions. If there are then we can advise you on the best cause of action. For example, if you have a radiator at the bottom of the stairs then it may be possible to simply have it replaced with a smaller one. This is a relatively cheap job and a skilled plumber can usually complete this within a couple of hours.
Providing A Suitable Power Supply
South West Stairlifts simply require a standard UK 3 pin socket. In certain circumstances this can also be a switched fused spur. Ideally for a Bridgwater rental stairlift it needs to be located within a couple of feet of the top of the stairs. Our skilled engineers can often run the rental stairlift charger cable neatly along skirting boards or under the edge of carpets. We cant go directly under carpets from one side to another in case something is dropped and damages the cable underneath. If there isn’t a suitable power supply nearby then we can identify the best location and a competent electrician can install one for around £120. If he fits a double socket then there will be a spare one for your hoover or night light as well.
How Long Does It Take To Get A Rental Stairlift Fitted?
We can usually install a standard Bridgewater rental stairlift within a matter of days. We are usually booked a week in advance but can also slot jobs in or move non urgent stairlift services if we need to accommodate someone quickly. If you have an urgent situation such as someone who cannot be released from hospital until there is a stairlift installed then we have another solution.
How Do I Measure My Stairs?
We have a simple guide on our website which explains how to measure your stairs for a rental stairlift. It shows how to take a basic measurement from the top step of your straight stairs down to the bottom floor. It also shows how to measure the width and top and bottom spaces to ensure there are no obstructions or intrusions. It also has a useful upload facility which enables you to attach photos of the staircase. We call this a ‘letter box survey’ and it can save around three days.
