Walk in Bathtub Reviews UK

This is an independent site that has your interest at heart.

BUYER BEWARE

The bathtub is the location for many accidents and injuries to the elderly. Unfortunately, the bathtub is also a necessary appliance. A senior can't simply avoid the tub, so why not shop for bathtubs for the elderly and disabled? If you're shopping for a walk-in shower tub, there are a few features that you should look for. After all, not every "senior tub" is safe enough for your loved one and more importantly not every company is the correct one to choose.

With so many negative comments regarding the suppliers and installers of walk in baths and walk in showers, below is an independent search on the companies that you see advertised nationally.

 

Companies Searched

First looked at was Batheability. Via Companies House it revealed that one of their directors, a Marian Newman had resigned, a Stephen Proctor was still serving, and the company status is Active _ with a proposal to strike off. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09738154

That was a good start.

The next two companies looked at were Mobility Plus and Premier Care in Bathing. Both owned by the same Equity company and both operate from Premier House in Redditch.

Bathing Solutions were owned by the Premier Group (see above). Read down through their reviews and you will see confirmation that they have changed their name to Care in Bathing. See Joseph from Wigan review.

Aquability and Nationwide Mobility are the same company.

Assistive Bathing. They were called Sensapaedic Ltd and changed their name to Assistive Bathing in 2017.

Walk in Showers and Baths were the only family run company advertising.

 

Product Range Available

Next to be looked at were the models and range available and found that Walk in Showers and Baths offered the largest range.

To find out which company offered the best value for money, advisors from all the companies visited various homes.

A like for like comparison was made and Walk in Showers and Baths were more than competitive by many hundreds of pounds.

 

Client Reviews

So, what did their clients think? There are some good reviews and some really bad ones. Some of the companies try to hide their bad reviews but they are easy enough to find.

In order of bad to best we have listed some of the reviews below. What did surprise us was for the company to get a Trust Pilot review the company pays a monthly fee of around £110 to Trust Pilot so there is an incentive for the reviews via Trust Pilot to be good.

The same applies to Which. The company pays a subscription to Which to use their Name and Logo. Unfortunately, we could not find out how much.

This seemed very unfair and misleading. You will see from the reviews that some of the companies approved by Which have very bad installation reviews.

It would appear the only company that trade on their own recommendations and receive true and factual client reviews via the web are Walk in Showers and Baths.

I have listed the links below of the main five that advertise nationally so you can draw your own conclusions.

 

Conclusion

The overall conclusion was that Walk in Showers and Baths offered the quickest installation from ordering, they offered the largest range of products and fantastic value for money.

I must point out that this review page and its contents are solely my findings. This page will be updated, as and when, to ensure YOU do not become one of the unlucky ones.
