When a stairlift is the answer

Lift problems? Compliance issues? The challenges of turning old buildings into mobility friendly spaces? We’ve got an answer to that. We’re starting to lose count of the number of instances we’ve seen recently of tenants with mobility issues effectively being left trapped in their homes because of a lack of means to get down the […]

Saluting Invictus

Why the support for Invictus athletes is almost as inspirational as the athletes themselves. We’ve reflected on these pages before about how often stairlifts are seen as a tool for an exclusively elderly audience. But if you saw some of the coverage of the Invictus Games in Toronto recently, you’ll have seen numerous snippets of […]

Engineers, not salespeople

Does it matter that the people you talk to at most stairlift companies are salespeople and account managers? We think so. If you’ve been shopping around for a stairlift you’ll no doubt have come across plenty of combinations of stairlift models, prices and service/warranty standards.

Lift repairs? Don’t forget the stairlift

For care homes, sheltered accommodation and blocks of flats with elderly or immobile residents, when the lift is out of action, a stairlift is absolutely essential.

Our golf day may have been a big success, but the real winner was Overgate Hospice in Elland. Last month in the blog we were gearing up for the annual Leodis Stairlifts Golf Day, the 8th edition of an event that’s become the Mayweather vs McGregor of the stairlift world. Held on 11 August at […]

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. We probably should have kept a score from day one, but although we don’t have a precise figure for the number of […]

The Leodis Stairlifts Golf Day

8 teams, in the 8th month, competing for honours in the 8th annual Leodis Stairlifts Golf Day. Stairlift companies are a competitive bunch. So 8 years ago, we decided to find a different way of channelling that competitive spirit. The result was the Leodis Stairlifts Golf Day, an annual, invitation-only event, sponsored by Leodis, that […]
