We originally got the stairlift for my mother who didn't have the stamina to climb the stairs anymore. When she was living with us, it worked fine. Then there were a number of years where we didn't use it for anything other than to bring laundry up and down the stairs. Now, my wife and I both have back issues and I got bad knees. When I'm hurting, it's a relief to have it. I'm happy with it.

You would think for the price that it would be quality but there are more expensive models that I didn't know about. I had to get it repaired because nobody told me that it would break after five years. It started grinding away at the worm drive and it stopped. When I called the guy who originally serviced it, he isn't doing it anymore. He told me about this other guy and it took me a few tries to get ahold of him. Eventually, he came out and said, “Yep, it's broken. It's all one piece so you gotta get a whole new one.” The chassis and the worm drive had to be replaced and that cost 2,500 bucks. He also said that this is a common problem with the year model that I had which was a 2013 but they had fixed whatever that problem was in 2016.

The stairlift seems to be sturdy. However, the guy said that there's one problem with the switch harness ‘cause the switch can be put on either side of the chair. He said that the side that the switch isn’t on, like the upstairs side of the arm, we have to lift the arm when we get off the chair. He said you do that enough times, it can break then that gets into a non-repairable issue again. I’ve also gotten a couple of different things on the warranty. One said that it's a limited lifetime warranty. Somebody else said it was 10 years but somebody else said it was three years.

    I have problems with my legs and I should have had a stairlift years ago, but couldn't do it then. My husband was living then and he would help me up and down the steps. But then he died in April and I had no one to help me, so I had to go on and get one. I have it now and I love it. My former boss' daughter handles all the business for her mother, and she's the one that told me about Harmar Mobility. I called them and I am very pleased with them.

    The initial visit was done by the owner of the company. He took his time. He was here three hours, and we got things straightened out. Where the chairlift had to be put on that wall at the bottom on the first floor, there's the door for the garage. Therefore, the railing could not go all the way down and stay down, it had to have a railing made where when I pushed the chair back up, it would go up to allow the door to open. And that has been a blessing for me. Also, I liked I didn't have to pick out the color of the cushion for the chair. The owner picked everything out when he came. It just blended beautifully. I am very pleased with the company that sold me that chairlift.

    The whole chairlift is a favorite for me. Because when I go up the steps, and then I wanna get around, there's a lever that I push down and the chair can swing, and then I make sure it's locked in place, then I can get off chair and go on about my business on that second floor. And when I'm ready to go back downstairs, I get back into that seat, push the lever so it goes back in the way it's supposed to ride down the rail, and I'm okay. I have been trying to refer the company to other people who have told me that they need chairlifts.

    The reason why my husband needs a stairlift is because he has a bad heart. We did move to a new house so in order to have him enjoy the lower level of our home which is where we put his office in, he needed a means to get to it. We thought that maybe we could put in a pneumatic elevator into our home. Unfortunately, we don't have the space for that. They shared that we would have needed to have thought about that while the home was under construction so that they could rough-in all of that for an elevator.

    When we found out that wasn't a possibility, our plan B was then to put in a stairlift which is one that didn't have to mount to the wall and that could be mounted onto the stairs themselves. Harmar Mobility could make it work and it was a lovely couple who came and installed it for us. We did have to have them come back one time because there was a clicking noise. They shared with us it that needed to have screws tightened just a tad. Now, there is no more noise. The guy was very knowledgeable about what the troubleshooting would be then came the next day to help us. The customer service is fabulous with them. During all this COVID, they were very much prepared. They were masked and we kept our distance.

    We haven't had much company but the people who have been to our home said, “If we need that, we're gonna get the phone numbers." They were very intrigued by it. You can fold it up and it's very streamlined. You don't have to have a special width on your staircase. When it’s in its closed or put away position, it doesn't interfere with anything. If I had a box, I could put it on the chair and send it down so I wouldn't have to worry about tripping or falling down the steps myself. I haven't had to use it in that regard but it is also another safety piece for people like me. It will come in handy if I have those moments. We love the stairlift and it matches what we have going on. We knew in advance so we had the electrician put in a plug in for it. Nobody sees the plug. It's a great addition and it's a needed addition to our homes.

    My wife has mobility problems, and she couldn't get to the basement. I got a Harmar by a referral from a friend. I am 66 years old and my boy scout leader is 91 and I do a lot with his son. I was talking to him when he said his dad's got one of those stairlifts. We went over to my friend's house and took a look at it. I told my wife it was what we needed and she agreed that it would work for us. Harmar Mobility is the company that manufactures the stairlift while Highland is the one that's selling their product. The people out of Highland that we dealt with were very proper. Everything was smooth. I called them, they came out, we interviewed, and we set it up. They put the stairlift unit in inside the house, and it goes straight to the basement. Everything was great and

    To someone who has a narrower-than-mine stairwell though, if they were figuring things out and if they were down to the last couple of inches of feasibilities, the brochure makes reference to what the thickness of the chair is as it's folded up. That dimension is an accurate number, but the caveat is that the unit sets three inches out from the wall. If someone measures their stairwell and says, “Well my stairwell is 34 minus 10 and a half. Okay, I got 23 and a half. That's enough.” it's marginal and then, they look at it after it's installed and say, “Whoa, how come I lost three or four inches here?" That was not a problem for me. I had enough stairwell and the thickness of the unit didn't matter to me, but it might affect someone else's calculations.

    I like the thing and I already recommended it to friends. It's a fine piece and for what I need it for, it does fine. However, there's one little feature that they might someday look to develop or include. I have to take my foot and flip down the footpad and at that time in the process, the stairwell is vulnerable to falling down as I'm reaching forward. I wondered if Harmar had some way to make a latch release where you push the button on the top, and that would go down so that you didn't have to lean forward to push that footpad down. Other than that, I'm a satisfied customer. I can walk down the stairs three steps, turn around, and put the footpad up, or I can hold on to the handrail and lean over.

    I called our local SAIL company, which is Southern Adirondack Independent Living. They gave me a couple of different names of local people who would install a chairlift because my grandmother was coming to live with me. I went through and took the local person, and they recommended this particular brand for what I needed in the space I had. The sales agent was very polite and courteous. He answered all my questions and he was very good. The installer then called up and said installing the chairlift would take him an hour or so. He came in with a partner and in it went. We had a nice, straight even run from the front door. It worked perfectly and he left.

    Size-wise, the Harmar chairlift is very nice. It's narrower than I thought it was going to be. I like that it goes flat, and it looks good. I have a window in my stairwell and we discovered that the chair was half an inch too tall in the back of the seat when it's all folded up. We had to move it a smidgen away from the wall so it would bypass my window molding. Other than that, it was good. It would’ve been even closer to the wall and given me even more steps to go up and down. I've been very pleased and I wish I had put this in while my mom was sick and not just when my grandmother came to live with me.

    My grandmother is comfortable being able to use the chairlift. It took her a little bit to figure out the buttons and knobs, but I appreciate that the chair tips at the top because our bedroom door is right at the top of the stairs. We usually leave the chair open and turned if she was gonna get in to it, and it blocks off the top of the stairs. If she feels uncomfortable doing anything, she already knows that she's not gonna fall down the stairs.

    I love Harmar and it has saved me a lot of steps. It's the nicest thing I could have ever gotten. I have an upstairs and a downstairs, the basement and the backyard, and I was running up and down the steps constantly. I have trouble with my knee and walking and this is wonderful. It's A-plus. We had trouble at first with the people that put it in. The guys didn't know how, but the big boss came and he took care of it. I have told all my neighbors to check it out. They know where to get it from.

    The stairlift doesn't seem as sturdy to me as I thought it was going to be. It seems like there are a lot of movements in it. Once I purchased it at the beginning, they were pretty quick to get it here and install it. The installer was very good. However, the unit ended up failing after a few months of being installed. They had to come back out and replace the whole chassis. When it had to be replaced, they said they had to keep waiting for parts so it wasn't a quick fix. It was probably 10 days. Luckily, they got here before someone got stuck up there. I was having problems when there was somebody that had gotten up there and they were kind of stuck up there because they couldn't get down the stairs and the machine was malfunctioning.

    We needed a stairlift because my husband couldn't go up the stairs anymore. It was too much. He would lose his balance and didn't have enough energy to go upstairs. We deal with Bellin Home Medical all the time and we went there. The reps came in and my husband showed them where he wanted it. They measured and when they brought the chair and put it in, it didn’t take very long. They were here two and a half hours. The starlift is a must for people like my husband. He’s in a nursing home now but there would have been no way he would have been able to go upstairs. We had a few problems with the stairlift but we realized that it wasn't plugged in. Sometimes it pulls out and so, we have to be careful. But otherwise, it's fine. We've been satisfied with Harmar.

    They came over, did the measurements and it went fast. They took care of it. They were very good about coming and taking care of me whenever something goes wrong. The stairlift is fine. But I'm noticing sometimes there's a clicking sound as it's going up. If it continues, I'll have them come over and check it.

    I installed the stairlift myself, and it wasn't that difficult. But I did have a couple of issues and I couldn't get it resolved through AmeriGlide. I had a broken piece during the shipping. I inspected all the stuff and it was noted right away. I made my report to the shipping people. Then I contacted AmeriGlide, took a picture of the damage, and spoke with someone there. They said, “No problem.” They would get a new piece coming out and I would just put it on myself. This went on for months. I had to call back several times, but still no results.

    I finally had to call Harmar as the manufacturer direct. The rep said they would take care of it and the part was here in a matter of a couple of days. But the batteries didn't last very long. Again, I went direct to Harmar instead of dealing with AmeriGlide. The gentleman at Harmar told me to take a couple of quick tests if I had an electric meter so we know it is the battery. I did that and gave him that information. Then they shipped me out some batteries and it was all taken care of. Everything seems to be okay now. Everything that I dealt directly with Harmar was great and it was taken care of promptly. They were great.
