The Friday night callout

It’s 10pm, Friday night. One Leodis customer can’t get her stairlift to move, which means she can’t get to bed. What happens next? Lots of stairlift companies advertise a ‘24hr service’. But they don’t always mean the service is staffed by people. More often than not, if you experience a stairlift problem late in the […]

26 years and counting…

When Leodis installed its first stairlift back in 1991, we couldn’t imagine how far we’d come. To celebrate, we’re still giving £26 to charity for every stairlift bought during our 26th birthday year.

The Leodis Stairlifts Golf Day

The 2 priorities in home safety

As we all get older, research reveals the two priorities for making our homes safer: the bathroom and the stairs. Everyone deserves the right to be able to access all of their home.

Staying safe on your stairlift

A 99-year-old grandmother shows why stairlift safety matters. We’ve spoken on these pages previously about the speed of your typical stairlift. These are not F1 cars; they are designed to give you the gentlest, most serene of journeys up and downstairs. But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be treated with respect. In a recent article, […]

What happens when your OT recommends a stairlift?

Your Occupational Therapist has recommended that you should consider buying a stairlift. So what happens next? Do you have to accept the OT’s recommended stairlift supplier? No. An Occupational Therapist’s job includes many duties, but scouring the market for the best stairlift suppliers and prices isn’t one of them. So whilst your OT may recommend […]

How fast do stairlifts go?

Don’t worry, it’s a stairlift, not a roller coaster. It’s one of those questions our customers tend not to think about until we’re midway through their stairlift installation, and then suddenly it hits them: what if their stairlift zips around too quickly? But there’s no need to worry. Whichever stairlift you choose, you’re in for […]
