What our customers are saying

  • The bed is working wonderfully and my husband finds it so comfortable. I honestly don't know what I would have done without your help and then having Scott and Eric come out and deliver and set up the bed. SFI is an amazing company who cares about helping the everyday person when your main customers are hospitals and nursing homes. Thank you again.
  • H.W., Home Care Customer
    Scott and his team were amazing. Friendly, helpful and totally committed to customer satisfaction. I would give them 10 stars if I could.

    SFI’s customer service is far and above anyone out there. They take time and effort to talk to the customer to learn what they actually need – they won’t just sell you any bed. This is key because sometimes the customer doesn’t know what they need until they talk to you.

    Quick response to my inquiries, and very professional staff! Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and practiced safe social distancing when setting up equipment.

    You all have been really helpful. Part of if was that you answered the phone between Christmas and New Year’s – you were there and you answered. My friend recommended you for the good prices which was the biggest thing at first, but other things turned out to be really important like needing a bed that was wider and longer, not just the standard size from other companies. My husband uses the bed every day. Thank you.

    We had one of our tubs stop giving us consistent hot water flow. Your help diagnosing the problem was really appreciated. Thanks for your awesome service, it’s always nice having a company as reliable and hard-working as you are.
