Why Choose Us?

There are many reasons to choose Dolphin South West and we are ready to receive your call. Do also check our accreditations as well as the councils and housing associations we are an approved supplier for. You can read about previous installations on our news page and what our customers have to say on our Reviews page.

We’re an independent family-run business specialising in the installation of both new and reconditioned stairlifts across the whole of Devon.

We’re not tied to one manufacturer or one type of lift; so no matter what your requirement, we can find the right solution for you and your home.
We can install your straight stair lift within a week (subject to our free, no obligation survey) and we can install a curved stair lift in 3 to 4 weeks.
We care that you have the right stairlift fitted to meet your individual needs and with 25 years’ experience, we are confident in the advice we give and the work we do.
We don’t employ sales people to carry out our free surveys – just trained engineer surveyors who are not paid on a commission basis. So there’s no hard sell from us and we never outstay our welcome.
We provide a written quotation (not an estimate) and don’t do any follow-up sales calls either, so you can make a decision in your own time.
