Handicare is a global company with its head office in Stockholm, Sweden. The company offers a range of safe and reliable stairlifts designed to make life easier for people with reduced mobility. Handicare stairlifts are sold nationwide across the UK and their range of mobility equipment products is available in over 20 countries worldwide, such as the Vermeer, Van Gogh and Rembrandt curved stairlift range.
The company’s origins go back to the 1800s and after various mergers and takeovers over the years, the business changed its name to Handicare in the 1990s. Handicare took over Freelift in 2007 and the Minivator Group in 2010. The company was then renamed Handicare Accessibility Ltd in the UK and Handicare Stairlifts B.V. in the Netherlands.
For physically challenged and elderly people who struggle with their stairs, installing a stairlift can help them maintain their independence at home. Handicare offers a selection of straight and curved stairlift solutions for almost any type of staircase configuration. Their stairlift models come with various customisable options depending on the user’s needs and budget.
Handicare stairlift prices depend on the model and any customisable options you require, whether your stairs are straight or curved and how much work will be required to fit the stairlift. We recommend getting a free, no obligation quote to find out how much it will cost to install a stairlift to meet your individual needs. If you are thinking of buying a Handicare stairlift, they are sold by independent suppliers throughout the UK. Handicare also works together with the social enterprise Age UK Trading CIC to supply Age UK stairlifts and support their charitable work.
All brand new Handicare stair lifts purchased from their UK partners are covered by a comprehensive manufacturer’s warranty that’s included in the price. Most stairlift dealers also offer extended warranties to cover their stairlifts for breakdown repairs after the original guarantee has expired. Handicare recommends its stairlifts are serviced at least annually by an approved engineer to carry out maintenance checks and ensure they are in full working order.
If you purchase a reconditioned Handicare stairlift from a reputable supplier, it should have been fully refurbished and serviced and come with a warranty.
There are four different models in Handicare’s range of stairlifts for straight stairs. These are designed to travel on staircases with no bends, corners or intermediate landings.
Handicare offers two different types of curved stairlifts in the UK, which are designed for use on stairs which bend, turn corners or cross landings and even on spiral staircases. They run on bespoke rails that are custom made to fit the exact requirements of your stairs.
