It is necessary to determine the type of stairs at home. If a your stairs are in a straight line, then you will have a straight stair lift. This is the most economical choice. Stairlift prices for this type of lift start as little as £695.
If your stairs has curves, turns or landings in the middle, you will probably need a curved stair lift. Usually stairlifts with curves have to be custom made and therefore are more expensive. Curved stairlifts for sale start at around £2300.
If the ladder has two straight sections with a landing in the middle, you may opt for two straight stair lifts which may cost less than curved stair lift.
If you have a small curve at the top of your landing One Stop Mobility can usually build a custom made platform which will also be less expensive than a curved lift.
The users condition is also a factor. Is it is permanent or temporary? If the injury is temporary, which could last about a year, it may be practical to rent a stairlift. If disability is permanent it is probaly practical to buy a stairlift.
For more savings you could choose a used or reconditioned stair lift. A reconditioned stairlift from One Stop Mobility comes with the same guarantees as a brand new stairlift.
