As we get older or develop mobility issues, we may find it difficult to carry out everyday activities such as using the stairs. Stairlifts are more popular now than ever – which could be due to the variety of stairlifts available and the features that come with them.
If you suffer from joint pain or mobility problems, then you have probably already started looking into purchasing stairlifts. But how affordable are stairlifts?
The cost of a stairlift depends on several factors such as the type of stairlift, the length of the track and the installation/ maintenance costs. Throughout this blog, we will be exploring different factors that affect the price of stairlifts and how much different stairlifts cost on average.
Prices of Different Types of Stairlifts
There are many different types of stairlifts such as straight and curved stairlifts. Different stairlift companies will charge different prices for their stairlifts – but we are here to give ballpark figures and shed some light on the cost of our stairlifts at Halton Stairlifts.
Likewise, the price of your stairlift can vary depending on the type of model and track. For example, curved stairlifts may cost more as they take longer to make and feature custom-made rails.
Straight stairlifts, on the other hand, are often a cheaper option as they are not made with bespoke rails and don’t take as long to make. Both stairlifts are made to fit seamlessly into your home – however, curved stairlifts are made to measure so they fit around any bends or corners.
To estimate a stairlift price, there are a number of factors that need to be taken into account such as:
- The type of stairlift (straight or curved)
- The length of the staircase
- The cover and duration of the warranty
- Details in the maintenance cost
- The stairlift model (new or refurbished)
Curved Stairlifts Prices
Here at Halton Stairlifts, we are a Checkatrade-approved company that provides a wide range of stairlifts such as straight and curved. We understand that not all staircases are straightforward- some have bends, half-landings and turns.
This can make curved staircases more challenging than straight ones. Due to this, we offer curved stairlifts suited to your home. All of our curved lifts are made-to-measure and come with a bespoke track to fit seamlessly onto your staircase.
Curved stairlifts can be costly and relatively more expensive compared to straight stairlifts. This is due to the personalised tracks made for curved staircases and a lot more work is involved when it comes to manufacturing and installation.
The average price for a single-flight curved stairlift is around £3,300 to £6,000 to install. However, if you are interested in a new multi-flight curved stairlift, then you will need an average budget of around £4500 to £8000.
Here at Halton Stairlifts, we provide a wide range of stairlifts suited for your home, so you can rest assured that there is a stairlift for you! Some of the curved stairlifts we offer are:
- Signature Curved Stairlift
- Dual Rail Curved Stairlift
- Halton Infinity Curved Stairlift
- Halton Style Curved Stairlift
- Halton Ultimate Curved Stairlift
Straight Stairlifts Prices
Straight Stairlifts are slightly cheaper than curved, this is because the tracks aren’t custom-made and therefore the installation time is much quicker compared to curved stairlifts.
Straight stairlifts are designed for straight stairs and are one of the most common types of lifts available on the market right now. The average price of a straight stairlift is around £2,500.
This type of stairlift is designed for staircases with no bends, half-landings or curves. Here at Halton Stairlifts, we have a variety of straight staircases suited to your home such as:
- Halton Slimline Stairlifts
- Reconditioned Halton Slimline Stairlift
- New Halton Slimline Stairlift
- Halton Heavy Duty Stairlifts
- Halton Sit and Stand Stairlift
- Halton Synergy Straight Stairlift
Our straight stairlifts are ideal as they cause little to no disruption to your home decor. This is because our straight stairlift rails are fitted to your stairs instead of your walls – so you can rest assured that there will be minimal invasive work in your home.
Not only do we provide you with stairlifts, but we also offer stairlift installation to cut out any unnecessary hassle. All of our engineers are highly qualified and DBS-checked. Due to the amount of experience we have in this industry, it takes us as little as two hours to install your stairlifts!
Reconditioned Vs New Stairlift Prices
New stairlifts have an average cost of £2,500 – £3,500 depending on the company and the type of stairlift. Used or reconditioned stairlifts, however, can cost upwards of £1,000.
The stairlift cost for reconditioned lifts is relatively cheaper compared to new lifts as they have been pre-loved. Reconditioned stairlifts are just as reliable as new stairlifts.
Here at Halton Stairlifts, we offer a range of new and used stairlifts suited for you. Each of our reconditioned stairlifts has been thoroughly tested to ensure that they are safe and reliable before they are installed in your home.
When you purchase our reconditioned stairlift, not only are you one step closer to gaining that extra bit of freedom, but you are also helping the environment. Overall, our reconditioned stairlifts can help you regain your confidence and independence allowing easy access to the rest of your home or garden!
Here at Halton Stairlifts, we offer a range of reconditioned straight and curved stairlifts such as:
- Reconditioned Halton Style Curved Stairlift
- Reconditioned Halton Signature Curved Stairlift
- Reconditioned Halton Signature Plus Curved Stairlift
- Halton Ultimate Curved Stairlift
- Reconditioned Halton Slimline Stairlifts
- Reconditioned Halton Slimline HD Stairlifts
- Reconditioned Halton Slimline Sit and Stand Stairlifts
The new stairlifts we offer are slightly more expensive compared to reconditioned lifts. However, both types offer the same features and are of excellent quality.
