Getting a stairlift is cheaper than moving house

A common concern people have when buying a stairlift is the price; but many forget to consider the true value of a stairlift when compared to the cost of some of the alternatives.

If you can no longer get up and down your stairs, you might consider moving to a ranch or single-story home. It might even seem like the easiest option.

When was the last time you moved house? Do you remember what that involved? Sorting through years’ worth of cherished items…and lots and lots of stuff. Stuff you don’t even remember owning. Packing everything into boxes. Hiring a delivery truck. All the heavy lifting and carrying and moving and worrying. That’s before even mentioning the hassle of trying to sell your own house or finding a new one within your price range.

It’s not just that moving house costs a huge amount more than buying a stairlift; it’s also about the emotional toll it takes on you. It’s exhausting. And it’s sad. Leaving behind all the memories you’ve built up over the years.

That’s why a stairlift is such a great option. You get to stay in the home you love, surrounded by your own things, your neighbours, your community. Staying at home makes you more active, because you’re in familiar surroundings. You have your routine and you know what you’re doing. Your stairlift can help you keep that intact. It can help you keep your home and get around all of it, safely and comfortably.

A stairlift: the most effective way to get the better of your stairs

Choosing to buy a Stannah stairlift over moving house is a cost-effective decision that will help you stay in the home you love. It will give you your house back. Give you your independence back. Even give you your energy back.

Getting a stairlift doesn’t mean exercising less. It means you have the energy to do things that actually matter. How much joy does climbing the stairs bring you? Compare that to having the energy to go out for a coffee, come home and know that you can glide up the stairs with no effort. Maybe the things that bring you joy are more active. Gardening? Yoga? Swimming? Dancing? Will your newfound energy mean you start a whole new hobby? Or will you simply have more energy to spend with the people you care about? No matter what you decide, the answer will certainly be more interesting than climbing the stairs, and probably much safer!
