Stairlifts to suit every home

If you’re looking for a lift for your stairs, then look no further and make us your 1st Choice! We’ve transformed the lives of over 4,500 people and we’re passionate about keeping you independent in the home you love and making your stairs a safer place.

With our Directors 50+ years of Stairlift Industry expertise you can be rest assured that you’re in the safest of hands. We’re a family run business that can give you a full range of products and services, independent choice, excellent workmanship, great value and outstanding customer care.

Why you can rely on us

1st Choice Stairlifts was started in 2004 by Coral & Colin Major, who decided after many years of working for the UK's top stairlift manufacturers, they would set out on their own to form an independent company that could provide a great local service to customers.  The company celebrated its 15th Anniversary in business in 2019 and has grown to become one of the most successful Independent Stairlift Retailers in the country, but we have stayed true to our roots and continue to offer that friendly personalised service to customers.  We have a team of 15 staff with office personnel, surveyors and qualified engineers serving our customers throughout the Wiltshire, Swindon, Bath, Bristol, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Hampshire and Dorset areas.  Our team of engineers install, repair, maintain, service and remove stairlifts and vertical lifts.  To give our customers total peace of mind, we also offer an Emergency Repair Service outside of office hours operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Our vans are well stocked and carry many common spare parts backed up with over 8,000 different spare parts in our storeroom back in our workshop at our head office.

How we can help you

We offer a wide range of stairlifts and vertical lifts for both indoor and outdoor use from various manufacturers.  It doesn't matter what your stairs look like, whether they are straight, curved, multiple flights, narrow or even spiral stairs, with our excellent range we can fit a lift on your stairs.  We offer new, reconditioned and rental stairlifts for both straight and curved stairs so are sure to have the right solution for you. 

It's best to have a Home Stairlift Assessment Visit so we can measure up your stairs and see you to determine which model would best suit you and your stairs.  This visit is free, and you are under no-obligation to purchase, but of course we would love to welcome you into our 1st Choice family as a customer!  All you need to do is call us to book in a convenient time.

We also have a showroom in Calne, Wiltshire where you can try out a stairlift or through the floor lift and have a test drive.  You might be unsure about having a lift fitted in case you think you might not be able to work it, but one visit to our showroom is all you will need to see how incredibly easy it is to work one.  You'll also see how quickly and safely you will be able to get up and downstairs with ease.  Call us to book an appointment with our friendly experienced staff to have a test run.
