.Stair Chair lift

Stairlifts, also called a stair chair, are valuable additions to any residential or commercial building. In fact, they can be a cost-effective alternative to an elevator, which would require the installation of shafts, cable systems, cabins, and so on. The operation of a stairlift is simple – it takes the user up and down a stairway at just the press of a button. The actual cost of a stairlift depends on various factors which are discussed below.

Stair Chair Lifts – Factors determining Costs

The main factors on which the cost of a stairlift depends:

Stairway configuration – The type of stairway – curved, spiral or straight – is one of the main factors that influence cost. Installing curved stair lifts would involve a greater expense than setting up straight stairlifts.

Battery-operated – Battery-operated models or DC models are more expensive than electrically-operated or AC stairlifts. DC models have the advantage that they can be operated even during power outages as they are battery-supported.

Additional features – If you customize a stair lift, it would raise the price. For instance, you can have a lift that includes a wheelchair platform. You can also have it fitted with arms. These adjustments would result in a higher cost. In any case, features such as swivel seat, non-skid adjustable foot rest, safety braking system, obstruction sensors and seat belts are standard in almost all models.

Brands – Going in for a good brand is would mean paying a higher price, but ensure good value for money. The technology and features incorporated raise the cost of stair chair lifts. Some of the quality stairlifts available from leading manufacturers include Electra-Ride Elite Outdoor, Electra-Ride III, Electra-Ride Elite, Step Saver, B.07, Flow II, Stair-Glide, and so on.

Installation – The cost is also influenced by installation expenses. To get a clear idea about the expenses of the stairlift system, your buildings should be well-assessed by installation experts. If your stairlift can be installed without much structural modification, it would cost considerably less.

Pre-owned – Reconditioned or pre-owned stairlifts would cost less that new. Going in for a reconditioned model is a good option when you are concerned about your budget. Many dealers buy used lifts and revamp them to work like new before they are offered for sale. Make sure you look at the warranty options when you buy this lift.

Buy your Chair Lift from a Reliable Dealer

When you buy a stair chair lift, it is important to consider the service charges, maintenance and repair costs, and the warranty that comes with it. You should take care to buy the device from a reliable dealer. Established suppliers have a wide inventory of leading models of stairlifts and would offer professional advice on the right one for your building and the costs involved.

Thank you for the information, Bo Kauffmann! A chair lift can be installed on most staircases in our homes. However, the ultimate stairlift cost will vary based on the type of chair, railing, and stairlift installation required. However, before deciding, consider the available safety features. Among the features are a seat belt, emergency stop, continuous pressure controls, obstruction switch, safety edges, and seat swivel. Also, look into the lift’s warranty and maintenance.

Thanks for sharing this great information with our elderly parents. A stair lift provides a great way to maintain our elderly parent’s freedom and independence. When it comes to care giving any extra help is a bonus. I love that there is so much more available now than ever before. Thanks for sharing this. have a good day

Lifts are made for a variety of situations and circumstances and can be situated on outdoor steps, small level rises, or stairs in a home to offer greater access and accessibility to the wheelchair-bound.
