Stairlift prices are not fixed, as the cost will depend on several different factors, and can range anywhere from £2,000 to £6,000. This is why getting a free no obligation survey done is essential. The surveyor will be able to take measurements of your stairs and assess the layout in order to determine which model would be best, and how much work will be involved in the installation. Straight stairlifts are cheaper than curved ones, as curved stairlifts need a custom built track to fit the specific configuration of a staircase, whereas it is easier to fit a track to a straight staircase.
According to a Which survey conducted in November 2014, the average price customers paid for a stairlift was £2,084. This figure includes secondhand and reconditioned stairlifts, which cost less at on average £1,490. The average price for a brand new stairlift was £2,371.
24 percent of respondents reported being able to negotiate a lower price than their original quote, and this was more likely with Acorn. Of the different brands, Acorn was slightly cheaper, with an average stairlift price of £2,307. The average price for a Stannah stairlift was £2,424 and for Handicare (sold by Companion), £2,545.
31 percent of people paid extra for an extended warranty or servicing contract. The average price for an extended warranty was £89, which usually covers call out fees and repairs after the one year manufacturer’s warranty expires. The average cost for a servicing contract was £99.
While a low price is an important consideration when purchasing a stairlift, you should also take into account the after sales service and support offered by the supplier, and ongoing maintenance and service costs.
