Next to the kitchen, your Bedroom and your Bathroom are perhaps the most important rooms in your home and more often than not they will be upstairs. When stairs start becoming difficult one solution is to move downstairs but this means a major change to your home and the way you live. A Stairlift avoids altering your home and helps keep things much as they are – you simply ride up stairs to your bedroom and your bathroom.

Although there are many different makes of lift, there are only three different types of lift, each suitable for a different style of staircase. And the power they require is almost always provided by an existing 13amp socket.

Types of Lift

Straight Lifts

Have a standard rail, cut to length, that simply follows the staircase up and down between floors. Sometimes the rail needs a hinge at its foot which operates automatically to ensure that the rail, when not in use, does not obstruct any entrance or passageway.

  • NEXT DAY Installation Available

Curved Lifts

As part of Acorns steps to combat coronavirus, they’ve introduced a new and remote ‘Virtual Survey’ process, eliminating the need for someone to visit you in person.
They’ve developed a very simple way to work with you get some basic measurements and pictures of your staircase, enabling them to determine suitability and pricing. The process is carried out using a mobile smartphone or tablet and usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes, with the stairlift expert taking you through the process in a clear, step-by-step manner. By the end they should have a full understanding of your needs and the best stairlift for you.
Items you will need for the virtual survey are a measuring tape, a pen and paper and a smartphone or tablet which can take and send photos. The stairlift expert will explain all the measurements and pictures needed and guide you through the process. You can call 0800 016 9390 to find out more.


Acorn offer rentals of straight, curved and outdoor stairlifts depending on your requirements. It’s an excellent option for customers who need a stairlift for the short term following an accident or operation, or if you have family or friends coming to stay who need the help a stairlift can give. For some customers renting a stairlift is less hassle then buying one, as it means you won’t have the worry and expense of servicing and maintenance costs since this is all taken care of.
Call 0800 016 9390 for more details on Acorn stairlift rentals.

British-built Stairlifts

Our British-built Acorn Stairlifts fit to the stairs, not the wall, so there is no messy and disruptive structural work, or drilling into masonry and plaster. Once fixed securely in position, the stairlift is simply plugged into the dedicated wall socket, with no need for any rewiring.
