Before Your Stair Lift Is Installed

If you\’ve decided upon stair lift installation, here\’s how to prepare:

  • Electrical outlets near stairs – So that the stair lift can be plugged in, there will need to be an outlet near your stairs. Granted, batteries are actually used to run a stair lift, but charging on a continuous basis can be executed with an electrical outlet near the stairs. Best of all, in the case of a power outage, you will be safe – not stuck on the stairs.
  • Prior to installation, take pictures – This is mostly for people who are concerned about possible damage. Before technicians arrive, take as many pictures of your staircase and surrounding areas as you wish. When the team is all done with installation, compare the pictures to the current state of your staircase. There should be no damage our mess left behind.
  • Clear the stairs – On the stairway and around it, look for obstructions. Make sure that the installation of your stairlift goes smoothly by clearing obstacles out of the way of the installation crew. We’re talking flowerpots, photos, statues, etc.
