There are a number of factors that can impact the cost of stairlift installation. One of the main factors is whether the installation is for a straight or curved staircase. There can also be a variation in price depending on the make and model. With varied specifications, the range of options for controls and settings in many modern stairlifts can impact the price.
A good first step in getting a clear idea of the costs associated with stairlift installation is arranging a home consultation with an experienced stairlift company. This can provide an opportunity to discuss the requirements for the stairlift and gain an understanding of the available options for different stairlifts. Cost-effective alternatives to purchasing brand-new stairlifts include the installation of a reconditioned stairlift and opting for rental stairlifts.
Read more below for some further information on some of the main factors that will impact the cost of stairlift installation.
Straight stairlifts are often less expensive to install than curved stairlifts. Often installation will be relatively simple with the process of measuring the required rail length being easier than the process for curved stairlifts. Reconditioned stairlifts can provide a cost-effective option. Experienced stairlift companies can ensure that used stairlifts are reconditioned to industry standards providing a viable alternative to brand-new models.
There are now many innovative options for stairlift installation on curved staircases offering independent living in a wide range of properties. Curved stairlifts are often more complex to install than straight stairlifts and are often more costly for this reason. As a result of the additional work required to work out the required dimensions for the rail, installation for curved stairlifts will take longer than for simpler installations on straight staircases.
One way to reduce costs when using a stairlift is by opting for a stairlift rental. This is often a preferred option to save money where a stairlift is only required for a short period of time. If a relative who requires a stairlift is staying at your house then high-quality, professional installation of a stairlift on a temporary basis is a cost-effective option. This can also be a good choice to see whether a stairlift is a viable option to provide independence within your home without buying a stairlift outright. Trialling a stairlift for a rental period can provide the confidence that this is the right solution to offer improved independent living.
