Mobility aids, such as stair lifts, have been an increasingly popular piece of rental equipment in recent years, people are living longer, but seem to be earning less money and, stair lifts aren’t exactly ‘cheap’ are they? Here are a few things to look for if you want to rent a stair lift yourself;

Servicing and maintenance

One of the biggest overheads of an expensive piece of machinery or equipment such as a stair lift could be its maintenance and upkeep. If you are looking to rent one, then you will want to make sure the rental covers servicing and maintenance as part of your agreement. If they are not included, then it might not be worth it.


You have to also consider if there is a problem with the machine, in between services, maybe it breaks down or, you accidentally damage it somehow. Who is responsible, are you covered under your own household insurance or does the provider of your stair lift rental in Kidderminster have insurance that will cover you?

Is it in good condition?
