Self install vs. Company install: There are many
different kinds of stair lifts out there, all with different set-ups and
designs… some very simple, others extremely difficult. A lot of the
stair lifts that are advertised as “self-install” aren’t too

the stair lift installed by professionals who can insure that everything
is accurate and in place. This may cost you a little more money upfront,
but having peace of mind with whoever will be using this, is well worth
the small investment.
