Throughout the UK there are many stairlift companies offering lots of different models of stairlifts. Add to that the seemingly endless list of options and extras and the choice can become quite baffling.
At Handicare, we are proud of the fact that our partners will give you an honest price based on your exact needs and circumstances. They will not try to sell you something that you do not want or need and will leave give you all the information you need to make an informed decision in your own time.
Are all stairlifts the same?
Unfortunately not. Although there are two broad types of stairlifts, those being straight and curved, there are literally dozens of different manufacturers and suppliers all offering different models and features.
To make sure you are looking at a quality product from a reputable supplier, you can look for to organisations such as the British Health Care Trades Association (BHTA) or UK Government’s Trust Mark Scheme for independent guidance on what to look for.
How much does a stairlift cost?
The price of a stairlift depends on a number of things, such as the type of staircase you have (straight, curved, indoor, outdoor), the angle of your stairs and the space available at both the top and bottom of the stairs. Other considerations can include the height of the bulkhead on the stairs, the available width and also whether or not there are any handrails or obstructions that need to be removed.
It is not just the location that will dictate the specification of a stairlift: in some cases power assisted features can be added to make using the lift even easier.
