Stairlifts for Straight Staircases – Local Dealer

Because the majority of staircases are straight, often the simplest and quickest accessible solution is a straight stairlift. Built specifically for staircases that are straight, these lifts have a standardized rail that can be cut to fit the exact length of any straight staircase. Straight stairlifts usually have a pretty quick turnaround time and only take one of our factory trained technicians 2-3 hours to install the lift.

With a service area covering the greater Chicagoland area, northwest Indiana, and southeast Wisconsin, we would be happy to help you find the perfect model for your home. Most of our customers prefer the Bruno Elite and Bruno Elan, but we do also offer models made by Handicare, Harmar, and Savaria.
