There are 3 main types of stairlifts available.

Straight stairlifts: the most common stairlift for the most common type of staircase.

Curved stairlifts: for staircases which curve round.

Outdoor stairlifts: as some properties have outdoor steps either to get into the building or in the garden.

This simple device for transporting people up and down stairs has become so popular, thanks to the independence it gives.

Acorn Stairlifts have had thousands of satisfied customers all over the world and this is what some of our customers are saying here in South Africa:

I hereby wish to thank you all for the outstanding experience I encountered with Acorn Stairlifts.

I contacted the company for a quote after my husband was paralyzed on his right side after a major stroke. Living in a double storey house made it close impossible to move from the top to bottom level. We could manage but were afraid that we, the caretaker, my domestic worker and I might slip and cause injuries to my husband or ourselves.

Mark who initially contacted me for a quote as requested, was friendly and professional. The quotation was given immediately. After a few other quotations, I was sure Acorn was the way to go.

At all times Salome kept me updated on where we were in the process to install the stair lift.  Amazingly was the service received from Gavin, who installed the whole stair lift all by himself. The way he arranged the parts, drilling tiles (without breaking one), set up the lift, tested and re-tested the working of the stair lift was just a confirmation of his pride. He then made me comfortable using the stair lift. He cleaned up all dust and empty boxes leaving my house spotless. Beside all this, he is so polite, efficient and professional. He is welcome in my home at any time.

Now we move my husband from the top to bottom level without fear. My husband enjoys the comfort of the stair lift and the frequent moving up and down.

Thank you to all the people involved helping to make our lives easier.

 I herewith wish to extend my gratitude and full appreciation to ACORN STAIRLIFTS for the installation of a heavy duty stairlift at my home.

Not only was their service friendly, and executed very promptly but the installation was done very professionally with much attention to smart finishing.

Via the internet, I received confirmation that Acorn stairlifts are the biggest stairlift company globally, but I can also confirm that their quotation for the project was by far the best from those that I have received!!!!

Thanks again for a job well done!!!

    ita a shame these stair lifts are far too expensive for todays pensioners.

  • Marthie says:

    Some medical aids sponsor many of these things.. The problem is that Acorn is not registered by the Department of Health (I think) and does not have a nappi code for it.. So medical aid cannot assist and like Mike said… way too expensive for pensioners to pay out of your pocket.

  • Mark Morris says:

    Good day Mike and Marthie,

    We at Acorn understand that cost is a very important factor, this being said we now have a range of cheaper reconditioned models available in the quest to make stairlifts more affordable for pensioners.

    We have previously applied with the Board of Heallthcare Funders for a Nappi code however it’s a big wall to climb but we are pursuing this and hopefully we’ll have some positive feedback in the near future.

    Best regards
