To accurately calculate stairlift cost, you need to first take a few measurements. After you’ve done so, you can simply input them into our calculator, and we will compute the cost of your stairlift, including delivery and installation.

You will need paper, a pen, and a tape measure, or if you prefer, you can print out this page and use it to help you through the process. However, it’s really easy as long as you make sure that your measurements are accurate. You’ll have your total stairlift price in just a few minutes.

In order to properly install your stairlift, you must make sure that you have at least 30 inches of clearance at the bottom of your staircase. If you find that there are openings such as doorways or other obstructions like radiators in the way, you may need a specific type of installation.

  • Remember to use inches for all measurements.

    1. First, you will need to figure out on which side of the staircase your stairlift will be installed: the left or the right.

  • 2. Then, determine the overall length of your staircase by extending your measuring tape from the top of the staircase to the bottom until it reaches the floor. You may need to have a friend or family member help you by holding the tape measure at the top of the steps, or place it under a heavy object so that it stays in place.

    Mark down the measurement on the same side on which your stairlift will be located. It’s important that this measurement be accurate, so avoid rushing and ask for a second opinion if you are unsure.

  • 3. Next, you must measure the width of your staircase, but keep in mind that you will need to obtain a measurement in several places along the staircase since many staircases will vary. If you find that you have different measurements, use the smallest or narrowest point in the calculator.

    Again, always remember to take measurements from the side on which your stairlift will be located.

  • 4. The fourth step is to make note of the number of steps the staircase has from the bottom to the top. No measurements are needed; simply count the steps.

  • 5. Finally, you need to make sure that there is enough clearance from obstructions at both the bottom and the top of the staircase. Make sure that there are no obstacles such as a wall or a door within 16 inches of the top step and within 30 inches from the bottom step.
