Cheap Stair Lifts

Stair lifts are an incredibly important addition to the home of anybody who has reduced mobility, be it due to age or illness.  By installing a stair lift in the home of a person with reduced mobility, it enables the user to remain in the home in which they are comfortable as well as within the community that they know.  Due to equality and diversity laws, stair lifts are also required to be installed in public buildings that do not contain elevators.

The Different Types of Chair Lifts

There are two main types of chair lifts available.  These are:

  • Straight stair lifts
  • Curved stair lifts
Straight stair lifts are generally the cheaper variety of stair lifts and cost around £1,500 new.  One of the reasons why the cost of these types of stair lifts is so low is because they are very easy to install, with installation generally taking no more than a few hours. 

Curved stair lifts are more expensive.  They generally cost between £3,500 and £4,000 and there is little price difference between a new curved stair lift and a reconditioned curved stair lift.  Curved stair lifts are custom made to fit a specific set of stairs, which is why they are so expensive.

How to Find Cheap Stair Lifts

When looking at cheap stair lifts, you first need to determine which type you need – straight or curved.  Secondly, you will want to determine whether you want a seated, standing or perched stair lift.  In order to keep costs down, you may want to look into reconditioning and installing a stair lift yourself, although you may want to enlist the help of an expert to check that it is safe.

Of course, cheap stair lifts are also available for purchase from installation companies.  There are many dealers in the United Kingdom that you could turn to, with many offering a range of cheap stair lifts from the best known manufacturers, such as:
