Companion is based in West Yorkshire and has a team of technical surveyors throughout the UK. Since it was established in 2003, the company has grown rapidly to become the well-known and trusted brand it is today. Companion is a member of The British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), which means its working practices meet the high standards set out by the BHTA Code of Practice.
Companion offers a range of stairlifts to fit nearly any home, including 3 different models for straight stairs. The company uses a cleverly designed rail that enables them to fit stairlifts to curved and even spiral staircases that other stairlifts might not fit. There’s a special compact stairlift designed for narrow stairs and even an outdoor model that can be used in any weather.
Companion stairlifts are designed with your comfort in mind and are very easy to operate. Each stairlift is operated by a large paddle switch that’s designed for anyone to use, including users with limited dexterity or visual impairments. It can be fitted on either the right or the left, depending on your needs. Each stairlift can also be operated by remote controls, so you can call the lift to you or send it away as required.
When your stairlift is built the seat and footrests will be purpose made to meet your needs, so it is comfortable for you to sit on. The seat will have lumber support for your back and a swivel function to make it easier for you to get on and off.
Companion stairlifts are DC powered and run on rechargable batteries that will work even in a power cut. The motor is whisper-quiet so you can use your stairlift day or night without disturbing anyone.
If there’s a doorway near the top or bottom of your stairs, Companion can build you a section of power-hinged track so that you can press a button to fold up the track and leave access through the door clear when the stairlift isn’t in use. If you prefer to get on and off your stairlift a little further away from the top or bottom of your stairs, perhaps where there is more space, your track can be extended.
Companion has even thought about how your stairlift will blend in with your decor. They offer a choice of 6 diffferent upholstery colors, so you can pick one that will fit in with your color scheme. Should you redecorate at a later date, Companion offers a reupholstery service so you can change the seat color if you wish.
Companion has a high standard of customer service and support. Their team of engineers is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, so help is always at hand if you have any questions or problems. Companion offers a “price match promise”, whereby if you get a cheaper quote for the same model from another provider, they will promise to match that price. All Companion stairlifts are covered by a 12 month guarantee on parts and labour.
