Custom Curved Stairlift

Gary French, owner of 101 Mobility in Carlsbad, CA, demonstrates a custom curved stairlift

A large number of homes in communities like Calavera Hills, Rancho Carrillo, Bressi Ranch, and La Costa feature sweeping curved stair cases or stairs that have multiple landings. People in these communities often call us for solutions when safety on the stairs becomes a concern, as we offer custom curved stairlifts that can be fitted to nearly any staircase’s unique curvature.

Many people also reach out to us for help as their parents grow older and experience mobility challenges or changes in their abilities. The most common safety concern for our callers is uncertainty about the stairs; so many of Carlsbad’s homes have multiple floors, and safe home access is very important to our local neighbors.

In the state of California, a Contractor’s License is required for any installed equipment valued at more than $500. 101 Mobility is a licensed general contractor and we are factory trained and certified to install the solutions we offer.

The staff at the Carlsbad 101 Mobility were attentive, professional and most accommodating. Our stair lift is just what we needed for our current physical limitations. Installation was just as professional as the upfront process. Thanks to all!

I was impressed about the caring showed by Kendra during the whole process and the two gentlemen who installed my stairlifts were the very best, they were very careful not to damage or in any way disturb my home in any negative way. I also liked the way I was trained on my stairlift and I feel so positive about this company and their products, I think I was very lucky to have found this organization, I am completely confident and satisfied.

101 Mobility installed three Harmar stair lifts in our home about three years ago. One of them locked up on Sunday night. I called Monday morning and Gary French had Soren, his Technician, at our home by Tuesday morning. Soren was able to diagnose and fix the problem in about one hour by working over the phone with the Harmar engineers. In addition he reprogramed the inoperable remotes on one of the stair lifts and checked the batteries in all three stair lifts. You are lucky to have someone like Soren servicing your customers. Thanks for your amazing response to our stair lift problem.

If you need a chair lift. Use this company, I had one installed and I love.it. This company was not only professional, but showed me photos of every step that would be taken . The installers were courteous and neat in their work. This is the best quality company you could ask for.
January 27, 2019

Kindra presented all the information we needed to make a good decision. Highly rated products, (I had done my research), and she had already come up with two final chair lifts that would match our particular needs. Kindra also brought samples for a needed handrail, which we selected to have installed on the same day. The best part was that the chair lift could be installed on the day we needed it to be, which was within a week- no waiting! On installation day, the crew of three came and got the job done so professionally and diligently. I appreciate so much, also, that they patiently showed my elderly mother how to use the chair lift, until she felt confident and comfortable with it. I highly recommend this wonderful company for all your mobility needs.

I like the idea of the LiftKar. But it is more difficult to learn than I thought it would be. I would recommend it to anyone who was physically fit enough to operate it. It is very well made and I trust that it is very safe. When I am actually using it to transport my father I will have a better idea of how I feel about it.

Besides the product, I’m very happy with the service. In a transition time in my parents like I didnt know how to go about purchasing a stair chair for my dad. I called a few places and they did not returned my call. Kindra was the first person that I spoke to at 101 Mobility. She was nice, patient, and answered all my concerns. I made the installation and purchasing process very easy. What I like most about her is that she did so well communicating with my mom and making her feel comfortable. That is the main reason why we made the purchase with 101 mobility. I also plan on referring my friends and relatives to you guys because you have the best customer service.

the chairlift has been a big help in fact more than we thought. I’m having surgery next week and it allows me to go upstairs while I’m healing. We had a little issue and it was addressed within a week. That’s the kind of confidence we need. Jim and June Hill

The delivery and instillation were completed as scheduled. However, the ramp edges appear as though this ramp had prior use or storage which caused a darkened finish. The weather has been too hot to attempt a cleaning. I checked the Mission Valley area Lowes for your recommended runner. It does not sell Apache Mills (extruded vinyl utility runner) cut to fit.

I have had the chair only a short time, but I find it very satisfactory. I was concerned that it would distract from the appearance of the house but I find that not to be so. It is quite handsome. The installation crew was great and I appreciated the time that Steve spent correcting the wiring. He was determined to get it right. Thanks for your excellent service and I look forward to an easier life. [NAME REMOVED]

I tried several different companies to get estimates and to have them recommend the best equipment. 101 Mobility was by far the best choice and they did a much better job at providing estimates after doing a very detailed analysis of our stairs and electrical connections. The price was also the best of all the companies. I want to specially thank Kindra French for all her help with this project and for providing me with everything I asked for. She's the best!

I am 77 years young and have pondered how I will get up to my Master Bedroom (16 steps high); I know there are other companies that install the stair lift to assist Handicapped persons to navigate the stairs. I done plenty of research before deciding to check out 101 Mobility in Carlsbad, California. I went to the the facility managed by Kindra and her husband Gary to ensure the product would suffice for my use. I needed this type of system since I am planning to have hip replacement surgery in the near future. I wanted to have this unit installed on 27 July 2017 to accommodate my hernia surgery. Gary came over to install the stair-lifter unit and spent approximately 5 hours installing the unit (considerable amount of work to assembling the track, the seat and the motor (battery rechargeable motor). The system I had installed in my home has now been in use in my home since 27 July 2017; it has definitely taken a lot of stress off of my healing hernia incision and makes my 16 stairs to my Master Bedroom so much easier and painless. Should have done this much sooner; it gives my hips a much needed break. The really nice part of this system is that when I get to the top of the stairs; I simply turn the chair 90 degrees to the left and step off the chair lift. Other installers charge additional for this feature. I have used this system for the past two weeks and everything works as designed. I am very happy with this equipment and would highly recommend this unit for anyone who has difficulty climbing stairs (pain free). Sincerely, [NAME REMOVED]

Their commitment to customer service is exemplary and I would not hesitate to buy from them or recommend them to anyone!
