A stairlift can help to transport a person up, who has difficulty with climbing the stairs themselves, up and down staircases. This may be a senior citizen, someone recovering from injury, an arthritis sufferer or someone living with a disability. Stairlifts can help these people to get around the house more safely and comfortably and maintain a sense of independence.

What is a stairlift

A stairlift, or staircase lift, can be fixed onto a straight or curved domestic staircase. The chair is usually fixed onto a rail that runs alongside the flight of stairs. There are various types of stairlifts and varying prices. A stairlift could be a simple platform for a wheelchair or a full chair with a range of features. Features may include adjustable seat height, a folding step and speed control. There are also stairlifts for outdoor stairs.

How much is a stairlift in the UK?

The average price for a new stairlift in the UK was £3,284 according to a 2020 survey by Which. Though this can go up to as much as £7000 in cases where there is a need for additional features, or you have a curved staircase or a very long flight of stairs.
So, when considering how much a stairlift will cost there are a few key factors that will affect the price.

First is the type of stairlift in question. A curved staircase will be priced differently than a straight stairlift. Another factor is the design of your staircase. Stairs can be narrow, long, short, curved or straight. For example, a stairlift for a spiral staircase will be more expensive. Finally, the needs of the user or users are an important consideration. For instance, if the user has any special needs such as unique physical or health conditions, or other height and weight requirements.

Straight stairlift

Straight stairlifts typically cost less than curved stairlifts. This is because they are simple and easier to install, and they often come with a readymade track. A straight stairlift will cost between £1,900 and £2,000 on average.

Curved stairlift

Curved stairlifts require a custom-made track that must be designed especially for your staircase to fit around the corners. This means a curved stairlift involves considerably more time and effort, and they are therefore more expensive. The average price of a curved stairlift in the UK is £6,000, though some can go as high as £9,000. However, you can get a curved stairlift for around £4000.

Outdoor stairlift

You may also want to consider an outdoor stairlift. A stairlift for an outdoor staircase will need to be able to withstand different weather conditions, and again the staircase length and type need to be taken into consideration. On average the price of an outdoor stairlift, which is durable for all weather conditions, is £5000. The more additional features and personalisation you add, the more you can expect to pay.
