We Can Move Your Stairlift To Your New House
If you are moving home and the stairlift fits within the specifications of your previous stairs then generally we can transfer the stairlift to your brand new home. Normally we require that the stairs in the new home are the same side as your old house and at the very least the stairs are the same length, if not smaller.
Transferring a stairlift takes around 3-4 hours between removal from your old house and reinstall to your new one. If your stairs in the new house is longer then there may be additional rail / parts required which would cost extra.
If you’re moving home and would like your stairlift moved then feel free to get in touch with Modern Mobility today!
When It’s Time To Move Home
If you would like to try and transfer your stairlift to your new home then the following items should be considered:
- New house has same length or shorter stairs than previous house
- The staircase is on the same side as your previous house, for example if your old stairs was on the right when you walked into your old home then it would also need to be the same in your new house
- There’s easy access to a plug socket either top or bottom of the stairs
- The stairlift is a straight stairs and not curved or going around bends
Around half of the time a stairlift is usually good to transfer to your new home, if it’s not then we would advise what further steps we would recommend. For example selling your old lift and re-purchasing a second hand or new lift for your new house.
