Why Test Ride a Stair Lift?
When you invest in a stair lift, it is important to make sure that you find the one that you are most comfortable with. Pictures, videos, and facts are all very helpful, but a stair lift is a product that often needs to be seen and touched in person. When you visit our showroom, you will be able to feel what it’s actually like to ride a stair lift. You will be able to feel how a lift starts, stops, rides around curves or turns, and learn all the basic controls that enable it to go up and down a staircase. With four brands of stair lifts available, you can compare each lift’s ride and decide which one works best for you.
Many of our customers visited our showroom before they purchased a stair lift. They found that being able to ride a stair lift before purchasing one allowed them to get a feel for how it will work in their home. It also removed any fear of not being able to understand how it fully operates after it was installed in their home.
Here is a quote from of a Glenview resident who visited our showroom before purchasing a stair lift: “Your showroom in Arlington Heights sold us as my husband was able to try all the lifts available. We chose a Bruno model for all of its wonderful functions”.
So, we highly encourage you to stop by and try one of our stair lifts out! We want you to be able to age in place and stay safe in the home you love. Giving a stair lift a test ride can help you confirm that it is the best product for your needs and situation. A stair lift is also much more affordable than moving to a single-level home or senior living community.
What Types of Stairlift are in the EHLS Showroom?
In our showroom, we have a total of five stair lifts that you can test ride. We have four straight rail models (Bruno Elan, Bruno Elite, Handicare, Savaria K2) and one curved rail models (Bruno Elite CRE). You can test-ride as many of the lifts as you would like! The straight models have standard straight rails that are built to fit any straight staircase. The curved stairlift models have rails that are custom made to fit on staircases that have curves, turns, or intermediate landings.
One of our experts can help you learn how to operate the stair lifts and find one that best fits your needs and staircase. We will also help you decide if you need to add any options to the stair lift such as a power folding footrest. Below are some of the most common options that we recommend to our customers:
- Power Folding Foot Rest
- Larger Footrest
- Power Swivel Seat
- Larger Chair
- Manual or Power Folding Rail
