Stairlift Prices: How Much Does a Stairlift Cost?

An Introduction to Stairlifts and Stairlift Pricing

There are several important questions to consider when choosing a stairlift for you or a loved one. The right stairlift is the one that lets you live in the home you know, love and enjoy. It removes the difficulties posed by stairs and gives you a safe, reliable alternative to expensive options, such as remodeling your home, installing a residential elevator or entering an assisted living facility.

You might be thinking, “Great, but how much is this going to cost?” Stairlift installation costs are an important factor in the decision-making process. While there is a lot of information to consider, this guide from Stannah will help answer some of your most pressing questions on stairlift prices. We’ll start by clarifying the factors that can affect the cost of your stairlift.

How much does a straight stairlift cost?

A straight stairlift typically costs between $2,500 – $5,000. Many customers choose an option in the $4,000-$4,500 range, while others opt for a factory refurbished model or take advantage of Stannah’s rental program. Other price factors include the additional of optional features, such as a power retractable rail or a powered swivel seat to make it even easier to get off at the top landing.

stairlift for curved stairs price

How much does a curved stairlift cost?

While pricing for a straight stairlift is fairly standard, stairs that make a turn can be a bit more complicated. Each stairlift is custom measured and designed for the staircase it will be installed on. Our custom curved rail fits your stairs perfectly, looks great and ensures that your stairlift hugs each turn, making for a smoother and more comfortable ride. You can expect prices for a curved stairlift to start at around $9,000, but for an exact quote, you’ll need to make an appointment for a no-obligation, free estimate from one of our stairlift advisors.

What determines the cost of a stairlift?

The price of a stairlift can depend on several factors, such as:

  • Are your stairs straight or curved?
  • How wide is your stairwell?
  • If there is a low ceiling, how much headroom is there?
  • How far will your stairlift travel?
  • Are there landings at the top and bottom of your stairs?

The biggest determining factor in pricing a stairlift is whether or not your stairs take a turn. For straight staircases, we use a standardized rail, cut to the appropriate length. Stairs that make a turn require a custom designed curved rail to ensure the best fit and appearance for these staircases.
