Brilliant Service

My enquiry about a stairlift was dealt with so efficiently. Visited the shop Monday morning and briefly enquired about cost. The engineer visited Monday PM and explained everything. Placed the order. Delivered and fitted to my satisfaction Friday of the same week. Fitted within the scheduled time and cost.

A good good service
Customer Service
We visited the Southampton store to look at boot mobility scooters, to which there a good selection of scooter to choose from. We were given some information and demos about the scooters, which were tired out. We were put under no pressure to buy. We did decided to buy one, so thank you for the very good service and answered all the question that we asked and would recommend you to any one else and you also have a good selection of disability equipment to purchase and as from the Isle of Wight you were very easy to find. Thank you for making it a pleasant experience.

First class service from start to finish

Supply and installation of a stairlift. We needed to get a stairlift quite quickly due to ill health. Jack came and surveyed was very clear on all of our options and cost. The stairlift was installed in a matter of days. All very professional and taking into account social distancing etc. We only had the stairlift for 3 weeks and then had it removed, again all very quick with no fuss. Being able to rent the stairlift was perfect. I would highly recommend and have done so for a relative in a similar situation. They received the same courteous and professional service from Jack.

Superfast stairlift repair
Customer Service
Unparalleled response from Ableworld Southampton. They fitted our stairlift several years ago, and it's still going strong. After taking my seat clumsily I managed to crack an arm (on the chair that is ). Asked for help last Friday evening, new arm fitted shortly after midday the following Monday. Really pleasant, careful (masked) friendly visit. Thank you so much.

Stilz lift installation by Ableworld, Woolston
Customer Service
My wife (who suffers from MS) & I had decided against a stairlift not wanting the stairs cluttered We decided on a Stilz lift after trialling the demonstration lift at Ableworld's big showroom in Woolston, Southampton where we also tried a stairlift. A suitable space was identified for installation, a full survey conducted and lift installation started six weeks later. The floor in the first floor room was reinforced to cater for the opening, central heating pipe re-routed and electrical provision made. After installation the first floor room was completely redecorated, carpet re-laid and the ground floor room ceiling repainted. Instruction and demonstration of the lift was given and the job deemed completed. During the course of installation, four days, the Ableworld staff were very polite, informative with regard to the fitting, worked and left everything very clean and tidy. A Stilz Lift representative was on hand to oversee the actual lift installation and completion. We also purchased a good value 24 hour emergency callout and maintenance service for five years My wife has been using the lift daily for eight months without a hitch and is very pleased. We will thoroughly recommend Ableworld of Woolston, Southampton after our recent experience.
