Purchasing a home stairlift can be a liberating investment, restoring your freedom and offering you a safe way to move freely around your home. If you are struggling with mobility problems, a stairlift can enable you to live comfortably within your own home. In this guide, we’ll give you some of our top insider tips on buying your own home stairlift.
How Much Does It Cost to Install a Home Stairlift?
To offer a realistic estimation of how much a stairlift will cost you, there are several factors that need to be taken into account. These include the actual price of your chosen stairlift, whether the model is brand-new or reconditioned, the quality of the model and the duration of the warranty, alongside the maintenance contract. Basic stairlift prices will often only cover the basic costs. It’s important to look into the additional costs. This will give you a true picture of the total price for a home stairlift.
Choosing the Right Home Stairlift Model
When it comes to choosing the right stairlift model, you usually have two main options. The first model is designed for straight staircases and the second is designed for curved staircases. Fitting a stairlift to a curved staircase will always cost more money. This is mainly because they take longer to make and install.
Regardless of your staircase design, all models will vary in price when it comes to the different features you opt to buy. Some stairlift models may initially appear to be cheaper, however, they may not be suitable for your personal needs. For example, added features like remote calling controls are necessary if there is more than one person using the home stairlift to move up and down the stairs. Also, if you suffer from vertigo, you can always choose a model with a harness seat-belt. This will offer an added level of reassurance.
