Determining the cost of a stair lift.
How much does a stairlift cost?
If you are considering a stair lift for your home, one of the first questions you probably have is “how much does a stairlift cost?” Like many things, the answer to that question depends on your home and your needs. The first thing to consider is where you would like to install a stairlift. Stairlifts can be installed indoors or outdoors, so if you just need help going up and down stairs inside your home an indoor stairlift would be your choice.
The second consideration is the type of stairs you have in your home. There are basically three types of stairways that determine the cost of a stairlift.
- Straight Stairways – a straight run of stairs with no landings or turns.
- Curved Stairways – a curved staircase
- Stairways with Landings – a staircase that has landings or turns.
A straight stairlift is designed to go in a simple straight line and does not need to change direction to go around a corner or follow a curved staircase. Economy model straight stair lifts start from around $2,600 installed and with a 1-year warranty.
A Curved Stair Lift is custom-built to your staircase and can change direction to follow a curved staircase, go around corners, or change direction on landings. Curved stair lifts have a custom-made rail that follows the exact contour of your stairs. Because these are custom made for your specific staircase they are more expensive than a straight stairlift.
The average price for a stair lift is between $3,000 – $6,000. All of our new stairlifts include installation and 1-year warranty. There are a variety of models, options, and features that you can consider for additional costs, similar to buying a new vehicle. Keep in mind that stairlifts are tax-exempt. Installation of a stairlift is quick and requires no modifications to your home.
Reconditioned Stairlifts we often have reconditioned straight stairlifts that you can consider depending on availability. These usually start at around $2,000 installed.
