This is the question we get asked the most! What determines the cost of a stairlift?
Every family is looking to balance the benefits (value) of installing a stairlift to prevent a fall of a loved one on the stairs (and the ramification of such a fall), verses the investment (cost) required to purchase the equipment.
For families, the value of a stairlift is priceless. They are investing in their peace of mind, because a fall on the stairs can be extremely devastating.
Research from The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) brings home the real value of a stairlift.
* The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)
FACT *: 60% of accident-related deaths amongst the elderly are due to falls involving stairs or steps.
Assistive technology such as stairlifts, meet the highest European standards of safety. Stairlifts are designed with 6 safety edges, and multiple redundancies to ensure they pass European safety norms (EN81-40).
Stairlifts are an electronic marvel, that work flawlessly at the touch of a button. They are MUCH more than just a rail, motor and a chair.
A stairlift is the preferred alternative when you need a fast solution for your staircase. It bolts onto the actual steps, and requires no additional adaptations to your staircase.
Stairlifts are a cheaper solution than a cabin lift, easier to maintain, and consume much less power (less than a lightbulb). They are installed in less than a day.
So back to the real question.
How much do i need to invest (cost) to enjoy the invaluable benefits (value) of a stairlift?
Asking us how much does a stairlift cost would be similar to asking a taxi driver how much does a car ride cost, before telling him where you want to go.
Or buying a new computer without checking out its specifications.
It is the same for stairlifts! Giving a price is not the difficult part- I just need to checkout your staircase information first.
And here is Why!
You need to know 3 important things about stairlifts:
- A stair lift is sophisticated a mechanical device for lifting people up and down stairs. A rail is mounted to the steps of the stairs. A chair is attached to the rail. A person gets onto the chair and is lifted up or down the stairs by the chair which moves along the rail.
- Stairlifts are CUSTOM made to your stairs.
- NO two staircases are exactly the same.
There are 5 key considerations in formulating the correct the price, when a stairlift solution is being designed for you.
#1-The shape of the stairs will determine the type stairlift best suited to your staircase. SO, is your staircase straight or curved? Even then, you need to know what qualifies as a straight or curved staircase. For example, a straight staircase has no intermediate landing, all steps are of the same height (yes! incredibly enough, often you will find that there is 1 or 2 weird step heights, and these are a main cause for falls on the stairs.)
#2-The location of the stairs makes a big difference, as outdoor stairlifts need to be weatherproofed, to ensure that they work effectively in rain, snow or sleet- or sand storm! The factory warranty on outdoor stairlifts means you do not need to worry. SO, is your staircase inside or outdoor? Indoor means inside a structure, and completely protected from ALL the elements.
#3-The length of the staircase tells us how muck track will be needed to get you to the floor you want. The tracks are made to the EXACT measurements of your staircase. It will not fit anywhere else! They are shaped to follow smooth curves, with tight bends around corners, so as to take up as little as possible of your staircase width. They are also molded to precise angles making the ride smooth and confortable, without violent changes in direction. – So, how many floors does your staircase cover?
#4-The number of turns and landings in the staircases will tell us that the factory needs to take extra special care on these critical parts of the rail, and use special equipment to mold the bends to the stairs in an eye pleasing manner. Yes! esthetics matters too. Stairlifts are not just functional, they pieces of art, designed to match your home décor. SO, how many bends does your stair case have?
#5-What additional options will be required by the user to facilitate the use of the stairlift? This thing you want to buy needs to be a complete, safe, solution to overcome the difficulty of climbing the stairs. The user’s ability to control the lift (toggle types), how to get on and off safely (seat type), where the lift starts and ends (yes, you can choose that too!),… There are many options available to you, although you may need nothing more than the basics. SO, what additional options will you need?
