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?" The answer really depends on your staircase. 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.
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 featuers 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.

I was considering a total of four companies that sell stair lifts. The Stannah salesperson was second in line. I received presentations from all four companies. The Stannah salesperson had the best presentation but the price wasn't the lowest, it was about 5% more than the lowest. With Stannah's reputation, their products (I did visit their showroom) and their guarantee (rental and break-down policy) I felt Stannah to be the best. I rented the chair to be sure it was a good fit for the house and after a week I have no question that I will be purchasing fully (the full price on the rental goes toward the purchase). I did my homework on these chairs and so far, Stannah was a great pick and I have no buyer's remorse.”

It might be glaringly obvious to you: a family member or friend would benefit enormously from a Stannah stairlift. But the idea might not be quite so easy for them to accept – even if you’re prepared to buy the stairlift for them.
It’s important to discuss the benefits and advantages with them. If they are finding the stairs a struggle, if you are constantly worrying, if the potential risks are just too great to bear, a Stannah stairlift is able to improve life in ways you may not even realize.
