Stairlifts FAQs & Pricing

Do I have to pay for a quotation?

No. We offer free stairlift quotes with no obligation.

Will someone have to visit my home for me to get a stairlift quote?

Not necessarily. We have a ‘Virtual Stairlift Survey’ that allows you to input the measurements of your staircase, followed by an estimate sent to your inbox within 24 hours. You could also opt for a video call with one of our advisors, where you will receive a quote via video with no measurements needed. Please note that all quotes will be approximate and may be subject to change until an engineer has taken exact measurements.

How much does a stairlift cost?

Prices of our stairlifts vary due to the types of stairlifts and bespoke solutions we offer.

Stairlift costs depend on the measurements of your staircase and the kind of stairlift you need. Straight stairlifts can be as affordable as £1,649 with curved stairlifts made to bespoke measurements start at £4,500 depending on the number of curves in your staircase.
