The person they sent was lovely – a nice Yorkshire man with a great sense of calm and kindness. As an Aspie, who is very ill and hyper-sensitive to new people and noise, I managed to ride the storm of this thing being put in without incident. The man wan thoughtful about the fact I needed to be warned to put on my ear defenders, and then also made sure the noises the thing makes wasn’t too loud or intrusive. He was really brilliant, worked well and put together a fantastic product.
Acorn stairlifts were amazing and gave me a pretty damn good product. I’m definitely impressed. The ride is smooth. The controls are so smooth and easy, almost absolutely anyone could use it. It folds up so nicely and it doesn’t get in the way, and the rail itself doesn’t look bad at all. It’s sleek, easy to use, minimalist and well-designed, unobtrusive, comfortable, safe. I never thought I’d ever feel safe in one of those things.
I really enjoy using it. It feels like the DLR (in London). It’s not slow and it’s not too fast, with a smooth gait the entire way, with no jerky movements to hurt.
From Acorns grow great things… in this case I’d say one of those things is a pretty damn cool stair lift. It’s already made an enormous difference in my life and it’s only been three days. I couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone who asked.
I was so scared of having one of these things… now I really wish I would have seen this six months ago – my life might have been a lot easier. I hated the fact stair lifts were bulky, ugly, horrid, scary, uncomfortable, difficult, and probably noisy. This one is the exact opposite of everything I ever thought of them, and right now, in this moment, I am elated my father found them and got their representative to come. It has been yet another one more good purchase to help me, and it seems we’re doing quite well at the moment.
