Stairlift Solutions

The Northern Echo:

Experienced in stairlift surveys and installation, we lead the way on price and service.

Stairlift Solutions started in Newton Aycliffe many years ago. Now Stairlift Solutions provides a complete Stairlift service throughout the North East

Whilst we provide stairlift services, we are still very much a family business. We pride ourselves on being a company that offers that 'local feel' and, as such, we are only as far away as a telephone call. You'll be impressed with how your enquiry is handled

The founders and proprietor of Stairlift Solutions, have set out to provide a service that is for all, and, where budget is a major consideration, we supply and install, as well as service, at costs which are affordable and efficient.

Many people might start out not knowing anything about stairlifts and stairlifts suppliers, when looking for a stairlift - sometimes called a chair lift - for themselves or someone they care about. So they look for a stairlifts comparison website, or chart like our company produces. A little research on the internet, like you are doing, is a wise investment of your time.

City carpets

The Northern Echo:

That's why, when you buy from us, you can be assured that you will always buy at the lowest and fairest price we can offer. We can do this because we are independent, and have sourced every single range to ensure value for money, and that it is the very best on the market at that moment in time.

We'll consistently beat the 'big sheds' and 'chains' on price, service and choice, and we'll never recommend a product that is unsuitable for a particular area. You won't find high-pressure sales tactics here, nor will you find hidden charges and last minute 'add ons' designed to bump up the price. Pricing is easy to understand and completely transparent.
