Minivator Perch Stairlift

Discover the Minivator Perch Stairlift, specially designed for when standing is more comfortable than sitting.

Call us today to get a quote or arrange your FREE home survey

As you might expect for a company built on making the journey up and downstairs more comfortable, most of our straight stairlifts are designed for sitting on.

But what happens when sitting isn’t comfortable for you, as might be the case if you’re recovering from (or waiting for) a knee or hip operation?

That’s when the Minivator / Handicare Perch Stairlift becomes the ideal choice. 

Its low profile ‘perch’ seat means your legs don’t have to bend to use it, but you still feel completely secure as you travel up and down the stairs.

Only need a perch stairlift temporarily?

Minivator Perch

Reconditioned Straight Stairlifts

A question we often get asked is why do so many of your customers choose a reconditioned stairlift instead of a new one? 

Well it’s quite simple really… 

You get the same latest model, the same great service, the same warranty and a huge saving in the cost.

Rental Straight Stairlifts

If you don’t need your stairlift for long, such as a relative is staying with you for a short period of time, or following an operation or illness, then you may want to consider taking advantage of our rental scheme. 

There’s a one off payment to cover installation and removal followed by a low monthly fee so you get the same great back-up service and you can have your stairlift installed within 24 hours.

Molly and Gina’s Story 

Molly’s daughter Gina contacted us when her Mum began to really struggle with the stairs. 

“Walking up stairs was dreadful for me. I had to hold on to the sides and if I slipped I had to grab something quickly which wasn’t easy.

I think it’s amazing that so easily I have been helped. It’s been difficult to explain but it’s freed me in a way I would never have thought of before. I feel like an adult again.”

Fundraising for Dogs Trust Leeds

Fundraising for Dogs Trust

We’re incredibly proud to announce that this year we have raised £5,565 which will be going to Dogs Trust, who have rehoming centres nearby in Leeds and Darlington, a charity very close to our hearts.

Dogs Trust is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Throughout their network of 21 Rehoming Centres across the UK and 1 in Ireland, they care for over 14,000 stray, unwanted and abandoned dogs each year.
