When the lady came, she was very nice and pleasant. She did the measure up, and we decided right there and then we wanna stay with Stannah. The gentleman that came and put in the stairlift was clean, neat, and pleasant. So everything was great. The stairlift is beautiful. It's working well.

They came and installed the stairlift on time perfectly. There were no surprises with the money, what they quoted was paid, and the Stairlift is the best thing we ever did for my father. This thing turned out to be perfect. It was a pleasant experience. The company was great and everything was perfect. My father loves the stairlift.

Original review: Oct. 9, 2022

The man that came out was very nice. The piece looked good. Everything was fine, except it's not responding the way it should. I'm a little disappointed in the Stannah stairlift. The foot piece does not come up as quickly as it did in the beginning. I called last week and asked somebody to come and do something about it or let me know what I can do about it. I got ahold of some woman, and she said that they would call me back the following week. But nobody has returned my call. This is a brand new one. If this is the response I get now, I can't imagine what I would get if I owned it for a couple of years. So I'm not happy with the Stannah.

The salesman was very cooperative and explained everything in detail. His name was Mo. He was very informative. He took measurements and pictures. He presented Stannah as a better way for me to get a stairlift. The stairlift works very well. I'm pleased by the aesthetic look of it and it compliments my coloring. It's a blessing to go up and down now without having to worry about dealing with climbing the stairs with my bad knees. Also, it's a comfort to know that I have that help. So, I'm more than happy that I got it. The expense was worth it. My children are happy that they don't have to worry that I might go up and down and fall. Not only that, I don't have to put the pressure and support of my knees that aren't that good, and make going up and down much easier.

I like the stairlift. Now, I don't have to worry about catching my breath when I go up the stairs because I need a double lung transplant and going up the stairs is always a chore. Before having the stairlift, once I came down, I usually stay. But now, I can go back up if I have to.

They answered my email and questions quickly. The sales rep was extremely careful in explaining everything. I already had rails put on the stairs and he discussed how they could gain a few more inches by taking them off. The installation went quicker than I thought. Other than the noise from their machinery, there was no commotion at all. After they were finished with the installation, the X-ray technician was coming to the home, and he couldn't get the machine up the stairs. I had to get Stannah to come back and alleviate that problem, which they did within an hour.

They came on time and they were very nice. They were also clean, respectful and polite. They did their job. They didn't fight with each other. They just worked hard for about three hours and it was great. They were pleasant to have in the house and we enjoyed them. We like the product and it seemed like it was good quality. Stannah wasn't necessarily the cheapest, but we felt that it was the best. But we're planning to call and have someone come and look at the stairlift because it's making chattery noises as it's going up the stairs in certain spots.

The rep spent a good hour with us. He seemed trustworthy. He explained the product very well. The only complaint I have is Stannah Stairlifts took too long to deliver it. The rep came in late May and it wasn't until September that they put it in. But the two young men who installed it were competent and explained a bit.

We got a stairlift for my mother-in-law, and it's been fantastic. A lady did the install, showed us how it worked, what we had to do to take it up and down, and told us about the warranty. She was excellent. The stairlift's quality is very good as well.

The chair was on the lower level. But I kept hearing ticking. I was wondering why it was ticking. When I pressed the button, I realized I could not move it. So, I called the service. When the guy came, he said the machine must always be up on top of the stairs. The guy did a good job. I did it so far and it’s good. I get the grip of it now. I’d recommend Stannah Stairlifts.

The Stannah Stairlift is a good product. I was a little disappointed in one thing, though. The technician had to take the whole thing apart when he was here to install one of the options that I had ordered. It added an hour to his time and that was okay. But the right and left handles would not snap in properly. Every once in a while, it would pop out. But I got them good now because they haven’t popped out in the last two weeks.

The Stannah rep that came out was very good. The stairlift does what it’s supposed to do. I wanted it all automatic so my wife didn't have to push anything. It's all operated by buttons. The chair turns around when it gets to the second floor 'cause the bathroom is right there once she gets to the second floor. It's also the perfect speed for her. She can operate it herself. We're very happy with it, so far. I'm very satisfied.

The installer of our Stannah Stairlift was very polite. The stairlift is doing what it's supposed to do. We don't have to struggle to get my husband down the stairs. We would just put him on the stairlift. I also had no problem with the quality even though I bought a secondhand one.

They were very prompt and put us on the list right away. They were also reliable. We called this Friday with a question and they answered it right away. As far as customer service goes, they've done a very good job. The installation of our stairlift also went fine. It was a new person, so it took a lot longer for him to figure out how to put it together, but he did it. We're happy with our Stannah Stairlift.

I emailed Stannah Saturday night and they were at my house Monday morning. It was an excellent experience working with them. We had a good time with them. I love the stairlift. However, my mom doesn't live here. It's for her when she comes to visit me. So, it's an expensive equipment just for her to use a few times. But that's the only way I can get her in my house.

Stannah Stairlifts response

Thank you Michelle for your five-star Stannah Stairlift review! We're so glad your mom can now visit you thanks to your stairlift. Hopefully she will be encouraged to visit more often now that she can glide up and down your stairs with ease.

The equipment of Stannah was pretty high-end, so when we had them over to do an estimate, it seemed like a good fit. The installation went very well and the installer was excellent. The quality of the stairlift is good. It's definitely increased my wife's comfort level with getting up to the second floor. That was the goal. We're happy with it.

Original review: Aug. 14, 2022

Stannah is a quality product. It's engineered really well. It's very strong and sturdy. My client is not afraid to use it. Also, their reps are very kind. They understand this market. With elderly people, you have to be gentle and kind and they are. The people are very well-spoken and they know what they're doing. The installers worked really hard. It was not an easy installation and they stuck with it and went beyond the time that they normally would work. They had to commute back to New Jersey to the warehouse and they did it. Even though they were gonna hit traffic, they didn't care. They wanted to finish and do their job. I'm very impressed with that.

Also, we had one thing where they have these posts that are support posts and at the top of the post, they have a cap and one was missing. I called the company and they called me the following morning and said they'd be happy to come over and put one in. By that time, one of the contractors found the missing cap somewhere on the job site and they put it in. I told the guy I didn't need a new one and he asked if I want them to come over and do a demonstration for the client. They were super nice.

The agent was good. But we've called several times and there's no way to get through to Stannah. You can't get anybody to call you back. It's insane. The reason we got the Stannah Stairlift was that the salesman told us that they are local and if you need something, we can get them right away. But it's not happening. Also, the stairlift is too slow. You can go around the block by the time you get upstairs.

The sales visit of the Stannah rep was wonderful. The salesman was very good and accommodating. Really answered all my questions. The installation was easy. It was one man who came. He put it in. He had to come back and make an adjustment because the chair got stuck and unfortunately, my mother-in-law was on it. She didn't realize she could just push the button and go back up. But they came back right away and made the adjustment, and it hasn't happened since. It’s fine and it's a good stairlift.

The Stannah rep was very pleasant. The installation went fine, too. I thought there might be a problem because I live in a very old house. But none at all. They just zapped it in and told my husband how it works. I like the stairlift. However, I'd like it to be cheaper.

We went out and asked for bids from several different stairlift companies. Most of them seemed to be behind the curve in terms of what they were offering from a technology standpoint and from an aesthetic standpoint. All in all, we decided to go with Stannah and that was when I was in Massachusetts. We installed three stairlifts on our home in Massachusetts. Then I have a curved one going into Florida. So far, so good. They put the order in and I approved the design. The sales guy was very helpful. The installation people were excellent, too. It looks really nice and functions really well. It's overall a good experience.

Stannah's sales rep and installer were wonderful. They really cared about what they were doing. They cared about the situation we were dealing with, with the mobility issue in the family, and they did a great job explaining everything. They went over it a couple of times to make sure. There wasn’t any kind of crazy pressure from the salesperson to buy something that would have been impractical, especially at a point where you're just starting off with a stairlift. It was only for a small area. So, that was very helpful. I didn't feel like I was being scammed or conned into anything. Being a caretaker, I deeply appreciated that. As far as the stairlift, it's really good.

I had a wonderful experience with Stannah. The salesman had a fellow with him that was in training. The two of them couldn't have been more professional. When the installer came to install it, it couldn't have been nicer. We’re very happy with everything. We got a refurbished stairlift and it's perfect. The quality is very nice. It doesn't even look used. The stairlift has impacted my husband’s life 100%. Much safer for him. Even when it's at the top of the stairs, you can still go by it and get up and down if you’re walking.

The installation of our Stannah Stairlift was perfect. The technician showed me everything that I needed to know to operate the stairlift. In case I had trouble, gave me information on that. The technician was very courteous and the installation went by very quickly. He cleaned up everything that that was there, including our steps. I was surprised by how well everything went. The sales rep was also very knowledgeable. He gave me quotes on exactly what I needed. He told me about the refurbished models and the new models. He told me about renting it or buying it, the options there. He also measured everything. Those two days were very good. I’m so glad that I went with Stannah. The stairlift is very useful. We’ve used it so many times already. It's quiet and efficient. I don't think we could have had a better piece of equipment anywhere.
