Many people ask us this question. Please read the information below to get a better understanding of how the prices are determined.
Stairlift is tailor-made
First of all, it is important to know that a stairlift is a tailor-made product. The prices are based on your type of staircase and the additional wishes and needs. In order to receive a quote, it is necessary for a stairlift supplier to professionally measure your stairs.
Types of staircases
Generally speaking, there are 3 types of staircases: a straight staircase, a curved staircase and a spiral staircase. The price of a stairlift is highly dependent on the type of staircase in your home.
Do you have a straight staircase? In that case, the costs for installing a stairlift are relatively lower, because a straight staircase usually requires less tailoring. Which makes it easier to install for the mechanic, hence the lower costs.
Based on this information, stairlifts for straight staircases are available from $2.500.
Do you have a curved staircase? In that case, the costs for installing a stairlift are somewhat higher, because the stairlift must be tailored specifically to your staircase. Which results in more work for the mechanic, hence the higher costs.
Based on this information, stairlifts for curved staircases range from $4.500 to $8.500 canadian dollars.
Do you have a spiral staircase? These types of staircases tend to be most expensive in general. Why? Because it requires much tailoring to both produce and install the stairlift.
Based on this information, stairlifts for spiral staircases start from $5.500 canadian dollars.
