✅ Why use Domestic Lift Services?
With so many stairlift dealers throughout Wembley, it’s not always easy to discern who is proper and who’s out to make quick money from vulnerable people. With stairlifts being such an important aid for those who need them, it’s vital that the people who need a stairlift get them from a dealer who’s not reliable, authorised & professional. Too many private sellers are out to undercut businesses who care & provide a respectful service. You may have the temptation of buying with a private seller but there are disadvantages to this. You may be thinking that you’re saving money but in the long run, an unauthorised dealer of stairlifts is a false economy.
✅ Do I need to service my stairlift?
Most people who make use of a stairlift in their home are going to have it for the foreseeable future, is an aid for those who need them in their homes. For this reason, it’s a sound assumption that the stairlift will stay in their homes for at least a few years. Because of this, stairlifts are going to have to be maintained & serviced to uphold proper function of the stairlift.
DLSL suggest annual services to make sure that you’re stairlift is operating properly throughout the year. This sounds like a random point, but we bring this up because private sellers don’t often offer services since they are often a one-man band that sells used or broken stairlifts that haven’t been reconditioned to a fit state for resale. Because of this, many households that have a stairlift that has been bought from dodgy dealers have been left with a broken stairlift that is beyond repair or service.
Now there are authorised dealers who sell used stairlifts, as we at DLSL offer used stairlifts to all our customers. However, the difference is that our used stairlifts have been reconditioned to factory level specifications and standards making sure that the stairlift is in as good of a condition as if it had just left the showroom floor. Reconditioned stairlifts are a great way of saving some money but only if you know where the stairlift has come from. DLSL will only acquire used stairlifts given a reliable service history & superb overall condition since we don’t want to sell faulty goods to our trusted customers.
✅ What are the different types of stairlifts?
An important aspect you need to consider is what type of stairlift you are going to need for your home. You need to buy the most appropriate style otherwise your stairlift won’t be fit for your purpose. There are two main types of stairlifts which are most commonly found in domestic homes. Straight & curved stairlifts are the most used forms since they are the best design for a lot of UK homes.

Stairlift Servicing & Maintenance
Stairlifts are complex systems to build, install & service correctly, and when it comes to installation & servicing, you really wouldn’t want to trust a novice to carry out your stairlift installation or service. Think about it like this, would you trust a complete novice to service your that you’ve paid for? If the answers no then you should be thinking the same thing about your stairlift since it takes experience and knowledge to provide a quality service.
Authorised dealers also have an advantage over private sellers, since authorised dealers will often have good connections with brands & manufacturers meaning and parts they may need for repairs or service are easy to get a hold of. Private dealers will be buying parts online which makes your bill much more expensive as they will often charge you profit on top of what is already an expensive part, as well as the labour to fix it. An authorised dealer will have a wide range of parts for all models that they service, meaning any repairs or service carried out on your stairlift will be quick & stress-free.
