Our StairLift Review Process

Purchasing a stair lift is an important decision as well as a significant investment. You will want to make sure that the model you choose not only falls into your budget but is also designed to fit your needs and meets your criteria for certain safety features. Here are several factors we used above to distinguish various stair lift models:


Cost is one of the first things that consumers look at when they are in the market for a stairlift. While products tend to fluctuate in price depending on the economy and the demand for that particular product, for the past few years, costs of stairlifts have remained stable. Prices can range from $1,500 for a basic straight stairlift to $3,000 for an econmy model. Heavy-duty units, outdoor stairlifts, and custom curved lifts will increase the price and may peak at $10,000 or more.


Many stairlift manufacturers will not honor the warranty on a stairlift unless the product is installed by one of the company’s trained and licensed technicians. While some people may choose to install the stairlift themselves, you will need to make sure that there is a manufacturer warranty in place for the model you are considering. For this reason, it is often recommended that a certified installer complete the job for you to ensure that you are covered should the unit malfunction.


It is important to keep in mind the various features on the product in terms of how well the stairlift can accommodate the user. This is particularly important if more than one resident will be using the stairlift, so consider purchasing a model that has adjustable seats or one that can accommodate varying weights or needs.


Some stairlifts are designed to look like another piece of furniture in your home. While this may not be important if you are living with a temporary injury and do not plan to keep the stairlift, are renting a stairlift, of if you are planning a move in the near future, those who are considering purchasing a stairlift for the long-term may desire a product that meshes into the current décor of the residence.
