Investing in a new stairlift can be a very liberating investment. A home stairlift can help to safely restore the freedom of people with mobility problems. Installing a stairlift can help people move freely in their home again. However, for many people, a key concern will always be about how much stairlifts cost.
To give a true estimate of how much a stairlift will cost, you will need to look at several different factors. These factors can include the purchase price of the stairlift, whether the model you are looking at is new or reconditioned, the quality and length of the model’s warranty, and what resale value you could achieve for the stairlift.
Making an Economical Choice
Some of the basic stairlift prices will not include the additional costs that help give you a true picture of the total price. It’s really important that you always have the size and shape of your staircase in mind. If you have a curved staircase, you may find it very difficult to resell your stairlift.
Choosing the Right Stairlift For You
All UK stairlift companies will offer two main types of stairlifts, those designed for a straight staircase and those designed for curved. A stairlift for a curved staircase will always be the costlier option because they take longer to make and fit.
However, regardless of the design of your staircase, different stairlift models will come with different prices attached. Some models may appear cheaper, but they may not suit your home or may not fulfil the needs of your family. Added extras including remote calling controls can become essential if your home has more than one stairlift user.
All good stairlift models will now come with a safety function that will automatically cut out in the event of a power cut or emergency. Stairlifts will also come with a seat designed for ease of access.
