Determining the price of a stairlift depends primarily on the stairway configuration and length. The lift capacity, styling preferences, power options or other upgrades are also factored into the cost.
Factors that determine the price of a stair lift:
- Is a straight or curved stairlift needed?
- What is the length of the staircase?
- Is a heavy-duty lifting capacity needed?
- Do you have a stair lift styling preference?
- Are there landings at the top or bottom of the staircase?
- Would you want power options or other upgrades?
- Does the state require a stair lift permit?
- (Yes! Oregon requires all stair lifts to have a permit.)
Price of Straight Stair Lifts
Straight staircases are the most common, and least expensive, stair lift. Prices for Bruno straight stair lifts start at approximately $5000 for the Elan model. This includes installation and Bruno’s industry-leading limited Lifetime Warranty on major components, the rail, motor, and the gearbox. Bruno’s premium-quality straight chairlift, the Elite model, is a step-up in pricing and features a 400-lb lift capacity and luxury comfort seat.
Personalized customization of a stair lift such as adding a manual or power folding rail, larger seat or footrest, power swivel seat, power folding seat, or different fabrics and colors will also increase cost.
Price of Curved Stair Lifts
Staircases with curves or landings require a curved stair lift. To ensure a perfect fit for an exceptionally smooth ride, Bruno custom designs and fabricates its curved stairlift rails to precisely fit each unique home. Because Bruno curved stair lift rails are hand-crafted, prices typically start at approximately $9500 plus installation and increase depending on the length and complexity of the staircase.
While a custom-crafted stair lift rail can be more expensive than a “modular” design used by many manufacturers, it delivers a consistently smooth, quiet, stable ride that is second to none. This renowned quality has resulted in Bruno being the top-selling curved stair lift in North America for over 20 years.
Alternatives to Stair Lifts
Stair lifts are a simple, cost-effective solution to solve the challenge of climbing stairs compared to moving or remodeling. Moving to a different home results in thousands of dollars in realtor fees, closing and general moving expenses. In addition, remodeling to accommodate a bedroom and shower on the first floor is often impractical and cost-prohibitive.
The cost of a stair lift is even more economical in contrast to an assisted living or nursing facility. In addition to the monetary cost of moving, stairlifts reduce the financial and emotional costs of having to move from the family home.
The Cost of a Stair Lift is Worth the Peace of Mind
Another benefit that comes with the price of a Bruno stair lift, is the confidence you and your family gain knowing you can effortlessly and safely go up and down your home’s steps as long as you choose to live in the home.
