Stair Lifts


straight-stair-lift-397x395-optimized.jpgStairs? ... No Problem!

Stairlifts can be the solution to a common problem -- the inability to get into your home or freely go to all floors of your home because of difficulty going up and down stairs.  Two steps or twelve steps -- it doesn't matter how many. Those steps can block your full access of your home.

Stairlifts are available in two general configurations -- straight and curved/custom -- and there is a solution for all stairway types.   For more on staircase types and possible solutions, keep reading.

While stairlifts are most common inside houses, stairlifts are also available for outdoor use.

And, at Image Management, LLC, we sell and service new and used stair lifts.  We are based in Raleigh, NC and sell/service/rent/purchase lifts all over North Carolina and in some areas of Virginia and South Carolina.

We also rent stair lifts for situations when the stair lift will most likely be needed for only a short time or when a lower initial payment followed by a monthly payment is desired. For more information about rentals, visit our Rentals page.

Keep reading for more stairlift info and/or contact us to discuss.

Who can use a stairlift?  Basically anyone!

StairLift basics

A stairlift:

Possible site preparation for your stairlift?

There is usually little if any site preparation required for a stair lift.  If you need any site preparation, we will provide a quote for performing the site prep ourselves as part of a turnkey installation or specify them completely and assist your choice of contractor/handyman. (We are a NC licensed general contractor - see our Home Accessibility page here for more info and a link to our license.)

    1. Use Multiple straight stairlifts.
      Mid-ride transfer on landing is required. Make sure the rider will be able to safely perform this mid-ride transfer long-term before you select this option.
    2. Use one custom/curved stairlift.
      Rider will have one continuous ride. No mid-ride transfer will be required.
