While these individuals are a small portion of the stairlift market, we feel it’s important to cater to their needs, a service we hope our curved rental range will be able to fulfil.

Stairlifts pose a difficult problem for many families, while materials and technological expertise necessitate a high price, they’re also one of only a few options available to those suffering from a loss of mobility. Factors out of the customer’s control come into play, such as curved stairways and fanned steps. Without extensive alteration these features often require customers to invest in purchasing an expensive, curved model.
With this in mind, Oakland Stairlifts, are proud to announce that they are expanding their existing range of rental models to include curved stairlifts, targeted towards those consumers with tight budgets and architecturally difficult homes.
Prices for curved stairlifts have traditionally been much higher than purchasing a simpler, straight variant. While Oakland offers straight models from £1395.00, this number inflates to £2995.00 for curved lifts. To help benefit users with difficult homes and finances, curved lifts are now being rented out from as little as £16 pounds per week. At these rates, renters could pay for 187 weeks before surpassing the price of purchasing a lift.
The marketing director of Oakland Stairlifts was available to comment on the service, and the importance behind it, ‘Having worked at the centre of the mobility aid industry for years, we understand the personal and financial issues that crop up for potential customers. In the case of an injury they don’t want to alter their home on a permanent basis for a condition they intend to overcome, and the expertise and build quality that goes into stairlift construction can price purchasing quite high. Yet if their home is inappropriate for a straight rental lift then, historically at least, purchasing a curved variant has been their only option. While these individuals are a small portion of the stairlift market, we feel it’s important to cater to their needs, a service we hope our curved rental range will be able to fulfil.’
Oakland Stairlifts have been operating for over 20 years, helping families and individuals across the UK find peace of mind through cheap, assistive technology. They already offer a wide range of money saving opportunities to their customers, with free home surveys to create realistic quotations, and one-off home alterations to facilitate installation of cheaper models. By expanding their range of curved rental stairlifts they hope to aid an oft-neglected niche of the stairlift market for years to come.
