Stairlift costs can vary depending on the scope of the installation and unit. When buying a stairlift on a budget, the additional expense can present some challenges.
When considering the cost of a stairlift, it’s also important to think about the value it would add to your lifestyle. From accessing more rooms in your home to ensuring you can go upstairs safely, the benefits having a stairlift often outweigh the initial financial outlay.
Taking the pressure off stairlift costs
At Halton Stairlifts, we’ve also put together some ideas to help you when you need buy a stairlift:
Saving in advance
If you start to spot signs that you may need some extra help climbing the stairs in future, you may wish to start saving a little money each month. If you are in the position to do so, putting a little money aside to go towards stairlift costs can soon start to add up. The money you’ve saved could reduce any financial strain when the time comes.
Buy a reconditioned stairlift unit
A reconditioned stairlift is a stairlift that has been owned previously but has been fully serviced. These pre-loved units are fully operational and sold in excellent resale condition. If you are buying a stairlift on a budget, you can make some savings by purchasing a reconditioned stairlift unit, saving around £500 in comparison to buying a brand new unit.
O% lower interest payments
If you’d prefer to buy a new stairlift, or would like further assistance buying a reconditioned stairlift, Halton Stairlifts offer reduced payment schemes to allow you to spread payments over a fixed term. Spreading your payments helps to relieve the pressure of finding a lump sum, particularly in unexpected circumstances.
Look out for deals and discounts
Throughout the year stairlift suppliers offer seasonal sales or promotional discounts. Look out for stairlifts at bargain prices in the January or Summer sales. It can also be worth using social media to find out about latest deals and offers as they arise. You can find Halton Stairlifts on Facebook here.
Support with equipment grants
Your local council can often provide financial support to those who meet the criteria and qualify for equipment grants. This can vary from region to region. Check your eligibility with your local social care team or visit www.gov.uk. A grant will help you to buy equipment that will improve your living arrangements and help you to get around the house easily and safely. Chronically ill or disabled people may also apply for total exemption on the VAT costs of installing a stairlift for domestic or personal use.
