Stairlift Servicing and Maintenance


Why do I need an annual stairlift service?

You should get your stairlift serviced regularly to make sure its working properly. A faulty stairlift is dangerous and could waste you money on repairs and breakdowns in the future. So, you should book a service once a year.

To keep your Stairlift running smoothly and trouble-free, it’s vital to have it serviced once a year. Why not contact us and arrange for one of our experienced Stairlift technicians to visit at a time to suit you? They will thoroughly inspect your Stairlift installation and carry out any required work to ensure that it continues to work perfectly. Our Stairlift services are available throughout Berkshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire.

What happens during a planned service?

We will:

  • Inspect Batteries and Charger
  • Take off the casing of your stairlift to inspect the main components.
  • Check connections on the main printed circuit board (PCB)
  • Check Final Limits Switches
  • Test Safety Down/Up Carriage/Footrest
  • Clean the parts/ Motor brushes, charger brushes (if tests indicate they need it).
  • Test Swivel Seat Interlocks
  • Inspect Over speed Governor
  • Check Stairlift Motor
  • Inspect Racking
  • Check Tightened Screws/Bolts with torque wrench
