Talk To Our Stairlift Professionals

You should keep in mind that there is never a complete set price when you have a stairlift installed due to several factors needing to be considered.

These can include:

With the list of factors stated above, it is obvious to note that it would be extremely difficult to pin point exact stairlift prices.

To give our customers an average stairlift cost, we have listed some purchase price guides below.

Our list of average prices labelled are for those stairlift models that have no additional extras included, therefore, this would be a usual base price.

Some additional payments that you should consider would be stairlift check ups.

Most stairlift companies, alike ours, would always recommend safety checks should be completed by a certified professional engineer at least once a year to ensure that everything is up to scratch!

VAT Exemption

We want to make it incredibly clear to all of our customers that you should NEVER be charged VAT on any stairlifts is you are an individual.

The times where VAT might be applicable is only when you are a council purchasing or a care home, but without this, according to the Notice 701/7 VAT reliefs for disabled people (Aug 2002) VAT should not be charged.

Many stairlift manufacturers and companies will use statements and slogans to pronounce them knocking off VAT, however, this is primarily to close the sale with customers.

Warranty will always be included. Even when you have bought a reconditioned stairlift. There has been very limited reports of any stairlift breakages within our company, however, warranty is always advised just in case!

Warranty Period

Warranty is an additional cost, however, it will cover any breakdown issues and replacement of any broken parts within the time frame arranged.

We always believe that warranty is a great point to add when discussing prices due to giving every customer some form of reassurance they might need.

You might be wondering, does it matter if my stairlift is on the right or left hand side of the staircase? The price will not differ at all when you are looking at the side of the staircase, however, we will always assess the surrounding to ensure you get the best fit.
