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? 
There are many aspects to a stairlift that will affect the final price; each person’s needs are different and most staircases are also different. We hope our stair lift price guide gives you an insight into the cost of a stairlift and the options available.

BM Stairlifts offer a FREE NO-OBLIGATION ON-SITE SURVEY AND QUOTE. We are extremely competitive on price, without ever compromising on the quality of our stairlifts or aftercare service. Phone our office on 018020405 or contact us through our website to arrange an appointment.


Types of Stairlifts Available: Straight and Curved


The biggest aspect that will define the price is if your staircase is straight, very narrow, or has any turns. A straight stairlift will cost substantially less than a curved stairlift, mainly due to the fact that the rail on a curved stairlift has to be custom-made.

Stairlift Brands


BM Stairlifts only use reliable stairlifts of the highest standard from reputable and respected manufacturers who are leading in the industry, including Otolift, Bruno, ThyssenKrupp, and Acorn.


Our stairlifts are fitted with many safety features as standard for extra peace of mind.

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 or aftercare service. We supply, fit and service stairlifts throughout all of Ireland.

As a general guide, a straight stair lift price starts from €1,800 + VAT and a curved stair lift price starts at €5,000 + VAT, fully fitted with a 2 year parts and labour warranty and a 10 year motor warranty (extended warranty options are available).

The VAT is fully refundable from Revenue after installation – VAT rate @ 13.5%. BM Stairlifts can help you with any forms that need to be completed and can send them away for you, ensuring you get the refund back as fast as possible.

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.)

Reconditioned Stair Lift Prices


Reconditioned stairlift prices start at €1200 + VAT for a fully fitted straight stairlift. You can expect a curved stairlift to be approximately €1000 less than a new curved stairlift.

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.

After-care Service – We Don’t Just Install Your Stairlift, We Stay With It For Life


A very important thing to keep in mind when comparing stairlift prices is the aftercare service provided. We pride ourselves on offering a 24hr breakdown service, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

Paying for your Stairlift


There are also many different payment plan options and grants available for people considering buying a stairlift. Contact the office for further details.

Stairlift Grants


Many people do not realise that they may be eligible for a grant to cover all or part of the cost of fitting a stairlift. We deal with grant applications on a daily basis and are more than happy to guide you through the process. There are grants available to help with the cost of stairlift installations, bathroom adaptations, ramps and rails, all of which BM Stairlifts can help with. You cannot apply for a grant to cover the cost of a reconditioned stairlift.

If you are considering buying a second hand stairlift privately on done deal or similar, there are huge disadvantages to contemplate. Follow this link to read more on buying a stairlift privately:

Stairlift Running Costs


Our stairlifts run on batteries which are charged from the mains when parked in the charge position. You will be pleased to know that the a stairlift cost very little to run in terms of electricity.

Have you Received a Quote Far Cheaper than any Other?


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.



Additional Points to Consider when Getting Prices for a Stairlift


  • Do you require a powered swivel seat?
  • All of our standard stairlifts are fitted with a slimline assisted (manual) swivel seat, i.e., you turn the seat with your body in the same way you would turn on an office chair). A powered swivel seat will automatically turn the chair so that it is facing the landing, a recommended feature for anyone with upper body impairment.  

  • 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 or are there any obstructions, e.g. a door, in the way?
  • If not, don’t despair!  A powered folding hinge rail can solve this issue. A powered folding hinge rail is also suitable if there is a doorway at the bottom of the stairs. 

  • Do you require a step alteration or perhaps a radiator needs to be removed to make room for the stairlift?
  • We can do this work for you but would need to know in advance.

  • 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

  • Does your carpet need replacing?
  • Don’t worry about your carpets during installation. The screws used to securely fit the stairlift rail to the threads of your stairs are small enough to go through carpet without creating large holes. However, if you are thinking of getting new carpets fitted, we would strongly advise to do so before getting the stairlift installed as to avoid disruption and extra costs in the future.


Extended Warranty Options Available


We offer various service contract plans to extend the warranty on your stairlift once it has expired. This covers includes one annual, scheduled service visit, priority attention, 365 days a year, in case of breakdown, attendance, call out, parts and labour are included. Prices start from as little as €285.00 per year, with greater discounts for longer plans.
