This guide has been
designed to assist anyone who is considering the purchase of
a stair lift. It is an impartial guide produced by Dolphin
Mobility Ltd, with the assistance of occupational
therapists, housing managers and several charities. This
booklet is designed to help you decide whether you need a
stair lift, and if so, how you can go about choosing one that
is right for your needs.
In recent times the stairlift industry has had its share of
bad publicity. There have been many reports of mis-selling,
over pricing and poor service, however, there are many
reputable companies offering good products and service, with a
few sensible precautions you should be able to acquire the
right equipment at a reasonable price. See
page 18 for sales tips and advice.

group of independent companies specialising in the supply,
installation and maintenance of stairlifts from most major
