Purchase versus Renting a Stairlift?

If you are trying to accommodate a short term physical injury or loved one visiting for the holidays, a stairlift rental is the most affordable, temporary solution. Where most mobility and accessibility providers require a minimum of 6 months for stairlift rentals, RIGHT NOW Mobility's minimum rental period is ONLY 3 MONTHS.  

However, if steps are becoming more and more challenging on a daily basis, a permanent stairlift installation may be the best option to provide safe and secure maneuverability within your home. 

Is Your Staircase Straight, Curved or Does it Have Any Platforms?

Right Now Mobility Savaria Curved Stairlift

The type of staircase determines the type of stairlift needed. Curved Staircases typically require a custom stairlift design based off of the measurements as curved staircases are not standard in design. Due to the custom nature of curved stairlifts, these stairlifts are not available for rent or sold as used, and are only available as NEW installations. In addition, the number of steps ultimately determines the length of rail needed to provide a safe and secure landing position for the user. 

Because curved stairlifts require additional technology and custom design, they are often 3-4 times more expensive than straight rail stairlifts. In some cases, a more budget-friendly configuration of straight rail stairlifts can be installed if the staircase has a large enough landing between two levels. As with any of our installations, RIGHT NOW Mobilty's Stairlift Experts are equipped to provide customers with options to ensure safe and secure accessibility at an affordable price.

How Wide is the Staircase?

The width of the staircase affects the style of stairlift unit we recommend for installation. Based on local building codes, there may be minimum clearance restrictions and other factors to consider. Often the narrower the staircase width, the more limited the stairlift options are, which is why RIGHT NOW Mobility carries stairlift units featuring an ultra-slim design. These stairlifts offer the smallest profile on the market without compromising on safety, security or stability. 

Outdoor Stairlifts

If you need an outdoor stairlift, RIGHT NOW Mobility offers both straight and curved options. These stairlifts are sealed to prevent water and dirt from penetrating the system and affecting performance. In addition, the rails are treated with a protective coating to prevent rusting. All of RIGHT NOW Mobility's outdoor units include a waterproof cover to protect and preserve the unit.
