Price of a stairlift

How much does a stairlift cost?

The price depends on the stairlift that meets your needs. Each stairlift is different, because each home is different. No two staircases are the same, nor are the people who want to use them. We make a stairlift that is perfectly matched to your needs and your house.

The price of your stairlift depends on:

  • How long the rail needs to be
  • If your stairs are straight or curved
  • How many turns your staircase has
  • If your stairs are outdoors or indoors
  • How many steps are in the flight of stairs
  • Which chair is best for you and your needs
  • If you want to go up more than one flight of stairs
  • If you want any additional features like a powered swivel
  • If there are any doors where the stairlift would need to go

Some of these factors are your choice, others depend on your house and your stairs. Either way, our specialist advisers are happy to walk you through all your options and tell you the price of the perfect stairlift for you. What’s the best fit for your house? What suits your specific needs? What’s the perfect lift to give you back the independence you thought you’d lost?

Find out about the perfect stairlift for you by booking a stair survey. That’s when our advisers can give you all the information you’re looking for.

Government help

There are many aids available that could help you fund your stairlift.

If you live in Ireland:

  • You can get a VAT refund on your stairlift up to 4 years after purchasing it
  • The Mobility Aids Grant Scheme could get you up to €6,000, if your annual income doesn’t exceed €30,000
  • The Housing Adaptation Grant for People with a Disability is also means tested, but could get you more than €6,000 if you qualify

If you live in Northern Ireland:

  • The Disabled Facilities Grant is means tested, but you could get up to £25,000, depending on the work you want to get done
  • You may be exempt from paying VAT if you suffer from a chronic illness or have a disability, but if not you may still be eligible to get 5% VAT relief

What is the price of installing a stairlift?

Nothing.

We think making your stairlift is only half the job. You only get your independence back when it’s safely installed on your stairs by our highly trained technicians. That’s why installation is included in your free quote. We don’t do our job by halves.

By installing it ourselves, we also guarantee that your stairlift is as safe as can be. We make sure the quality checks we run in our factory are carried on right into your home.

That’s not all. When you get your free quote, it includes:

  • The price of the perfect stairlift for you

Second hand stairlift

We don’t recommend you buy a second hand stairlift from anyone other than a stairlift company. Our Stannah reconditioned stairlifts might be just the option you’re looking for. Cheaper than a new stairlift, our reconditioned options still come with a Stannah guarantee, keeping you safe in your home, for that much cheaper.
