My girlfriend and I are 75-plus and we need something to get up the front stairs and the inside stairs. I checked out Lifeway and found that their prices are reasonable. I can also get used ones even. Instead of paying $10,000 for a new one, I can get one for a lot less. Look into Lifeway. Installations are good and the people are hardworking.

    Lifeway Mobility did everything really good. The salesperson that came out was very helpful. The stairlift is compact, and the installation took less than two hours. So far, my father likes it really good. It helps him out a lot.

    They did a great job installing the stairlift. But they didn’t tell me when they were coming until they were in Baltimore and then they were about an hour and a half away. I had an old stairlift unattached to the floor, but it’s really long and heavy, and I couldn't get it out. So when the installer came in, he cut it for us, and we got it out. I really appreciated that. Then he put the new one in, and it's great. It works and looks good. So I’m really happy with it. One nice thing that I really like a lot is that when you get to the top of the steps, the chair swivels around. The stairlift is for my wife. So when she gets up, she's not getting up on the steps. She’s getting up away from the steps. So that's really good. It’s a lot safer than the old one.

    Lifeway Mobility response

    Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback on the installation of your stairlift! We apologize for the communication issues and will review that with our team to prevent that from happening in the future. Typically, our technicians will call when they're about 15 minutes away.

    We're happy to hear you and your wife are happy with the new stairlift. The swivel feature is great as it does allow for a safe exit at the top landing as you mentioned.

    Thank you for choosing Lifeway Mobility for your stairlift!

    Lifeway was very nice to deal with. They came in and they installed, and they were very kind, efficient and professional. So far, I'm using the stairlift and it’s very good. I can get up and down my stairs very efficiently. We were highly recommended to Lifeway and upon doing research, we found that everyone that had gotten it seemed to have been very happy. We researched other people and their stairlifts came apart, people were killed and they had a lot of recalls.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to submit feedback on the installation of your new stairlift. We're so happy to hear of your satisfaction with the product and the entire process. Thank you for choosing Lifeway Mobility!

    Lifeway is slow. They got my $2,000 deposit but there has been no call or installation.
