How much does a stairlift cost?
In order to determine the cost of a stairlift, a staircase survey must be carried out. This is because, although we would love to be able to give you a price over the phone, a trained surveyor must measure the stairs in person and assess their suitability to install a stairlift. Safety considerations and customer care are our utmost priority.
Our stairlifts are exempt from VAT if the user is exempt from VAT. Our surveyors are trained to assess the users mobility and in most cases, will fill out a VAT exemption form for the user if appropriate.
There are numerous factors which affect the installation of a stairlift and in turn, affect the price. For example, the stair width, obstructions at the top and bottom of the staircase, the angle of the staircase and the amount of steps on the staircase. The complexity of the stairlift is reflected in the price. Our stairlifts are precise, complex and well-made machines, made to some of the most rigorous safety levels in manufacturing.
We supply 3 different models of stairlifts:
Abercorn 130 Indoor Straight.
Abercorn 180 Indoor Curve.
Abercorn 130 Outdoor Straight.
The rule of thumb with regards to stairlift prices is that straight stairlifts are cheaper than curved stairlifts.
As mentioned above, an accurate price can only be given once a survey of the staircase has taken place.
