Stair Lift Prices – How much does a Stair lift cost?

When it comes to buying a stairlift, the first thing that people want to know is how much will it cost? The answer to this question is not as clear cut as you may think. There are many aspects to a stairlift that will affect the final price.  Our guide to stair lift prices will provide you with the information you need.

BM Stairlifts offer a free no obligation on-site survey and quote to all of our customers.  We are extremely competitive on price and most importantly this is achieved without ever compromising on the quality of our stairlifts.

Straight or Curved Stairlift?

The biggest aspect that will define price differentiation, is if your stair case is straight or curved. Once this is determined the cost of your stairlift can vary depending on what specifications you require from your stairlift.


Below is a list of specifications in relation to stairlifts. These are often outlined in an Occupational Therapist Report.

If you don’t have an Occupational Report, our stairlift surveyors can help you make the best decision for your personal needs.

  • Do you require a powered assisted swivel seat? A powered swivel seat will automatically turn you round to face the landing.
  • Do you require a powered footrest? A powered footrest link will fold up with the stairlift seat, removing the requirement to bend down.
  • Is there enough space to park the stairlift at the bottom of the stairs?  If not, don’t despair!  A powered folding hinge can solve this issue.
  • Do you require a step alteration or perhaps a radiator needs to be removed to make room for the stairlift? On a separate note, don’t worry about your carpets during installation as they are completely unaffected. However, if you are considering getting new carpets down, it would be a good opportunity to get them down before installation to avoid disruption in future.
  • Would you like a customised seat cover to compliment a colour scheme in your home?  Most stairlifts come with a beige/cream seat chair cover as standard so regardless of colour schemes it will always blend in.  However, we can supply a stairlift in different colour and fabric options, including an easy to clean leather effect cover.
  • Has your stairs multiple bends in it?  Additional curves to a staircase adds to the overall price. Therefore, we would always be reluctant to give a price without coming out to do a free quotation. If you would like to arrange a free, no obligation quotation, click on this link


What kind of stairlift will I choose?

Once you establish the kind of lift you require you will have different makes and models to choose from.

At BM Stairlifts we only use reliable and reputable stairlifts from respected manufacturers. Our suppliers are leading in the industry and they include Otolift, Acorn, Meditek, and Thyssen.
It is also important to note that the prices do not vary when you choose different makes or models. All our lifts are of the highest standard and none are considered superior. The only thing that varies is the different specifications you require and this in turn is what affects price. Our stairlifts are fitted with many safety features as standard for peace of mind.

Stair Lift Prices

As a general guide, a straight stair lift price starts from €1800 + VAT and a curved stair lift price starts at €5000 + VAT, fully fitted with a two year warranty (extended warranty options are also available). As you can see the price variation between straight and curved is considerable.  Often this can come as a shock to people, especially if they had considered their stairlift to be straight when in fact it is deemed curved, for example; due to two steps at the bottom.

As mentioned above, there are other factors that affect price too, so prices quoted above are ONLY GUIDELINE PRICES which is why we recommend arranging for our friendly surveyor to call out to your house to discuss your options and provide you with a free personalised quotation.

Competitive Stair lift Prices

BM Stairlifts are extremely competitive on price and most importantly this is achieved without ever compromising on the quality of our stairlifts.

On an occasion where you have received a few quotes from various companies and one has quoted considerably lower it is always advisable to look at the small print. Many times, on closer inspection, the said company has not included required specification like a powered swivel seat, which often or not is outlined as required in an Occupational Therapist Report.

Stair Lift Price Promise

If you have been quoted less by another company for the same stairlift, BM Stairlifts promise to offer you a better deal.  (Terms and conditions apply.)
