Professional stairlift removal services
The removal of your chair lift will be done by an experienced technician who will make the process quick and easy. It’s important to note stairlifts are heavy and can be complicated to remove without knowledge of this type of equipment. For safety and to prevent any damage to your home it is always recommended a stair lift be removed by a qualified technician.
The lift removal process
The stairlift removal process can be done in 1-2 hours by our certified lift technicians. To disassemble a stairlift in an efficient manner requires a multi-part process with experience in lift mechanical and electrical systems. Our process begins with a quick assessment of the lift, associated hardware used to attach the mounting brackets to the stairs, and location of the 110vac outlet used for the power supply.
Some stairlifts require special tools to disassemble the rail or to separate the chair from the main drive assembly. Since we’ve removed hundreds of lifts we always carry the proper tools and equipment to expedite this process.
What to expect after it’s removed
We’re often asked if there will be any visible signs of the lift installation after it has been removed. Typically on the Acorn stair lift, there will be four small holes about 1/8 in diameter where each rail bracket was attached to the stair tread. This will also be the case with Bruno and Harmar chairlifts.
If you have carpeted stairs in most cases all you’ll need to do is run a vacuum over this area a few times to return it to its original condition. If the stairs are hardwood then you’ll need to have the holes filled with matching wood putty.
The service cost for removal
The cost for stairlift removal will depend on the type of lift and location. We can provide you with a price over the phone for removal if you have the following information.
- Stairlift manufacturer and model number.

Before and after of an Acorn curved lift removal
After the lift has been removed and the rail has been dismantled you’ll have impressions in the carpet where the support posts were attached. These areas will usually return to normal over time.
