Stairlift Prices: How Much Does a Stairlift Cost?

An Introduction to Stairlifts and Stairlift Pricing

Stannah explains stairlift prices


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.


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 are 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 stairs?


The biggest determining factor in pricing a stairlift is whether or not your stairs take a turn. For straight run staircases, we use a standardized rail, cut to the appropriate length. Stairs that turn require a custom designed curved rail to fit the different bends and shapes of these staircases.

Straight Stairlift Prices

When budgeting for a straight stairlift, one can expect to spend anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000. Many customers choose an option in the $3,500-$4,500 range, while others opt for a refurbished model or take advantage of Stannah’s short term rental program. Other pricing factors include potentially important features, such as a fold-up retractable rail for stairs with a door at the bottom or a powered swivel seat to make it easier to get off at the top landing.

While pricing for a straight stairlift is fairly standard, stairs that turn can be a bit more complicated. Each lift must be custom designed for the unique staircase it will be installed on. By customizing our curved rails, we ensure that your lift hugs each turn, making for a smoother and more comfortable ride. You can expect a curved lift to start around $8,500.

What You Should Demand from a Stairlift and a Stairlift Provider

The right stairlift gives you access to a world of independence. But how do you know which one is the right one? Follow these tips!

  • Get advice from other stairlift owners and users. Find out about their experiences. Feel free to read our customer testimonies or visit a friend or family member who has already taken the step and installed a stairlift.
  • Ask the questions you want to know the answers to. Don’t rush into anything just because someone is looking for a quick sale. Find out about the experience of the salesperson and the technicians. How long have they been doing this? Do they fill you with uplifting confidence or a horrible sinking feeling?
  • Demand a stairlift suited to you, your home and your tastes – It’s not just about your staircase. It’s about your own needs. And your tastes and expectations. Your stairlift consultant has to take you and your preferences into account. How else will you find the stairlift that is right for you? For example, at Stannah this always begins with a no-obligation consultation with one of our friendly advisors. It’s where we assess how we can meet your needs while also letting you know exactly what will fit your unique situation.
  • Most importantly: Make sure it is safe – Only allow an accredited stairlift technician to work on your installation. All their products must meet the strictest safety standards. If you are unsure about this, ask the supplier about safety features or contact us for further advice.
