Stairlift Prices - How Much Does A Stairlift Cost?
A stairlift is something that you’re likely to only buy once in your life, so chances are you won’t know what they cost or what options are available to you.
It is the ideal solution if you are encountering difficulty walking up and down the stairs.
Buying a stairlift can give you back your independence, significantly reducing the risk of serious injury on the stairs. It is also a more cost-effective alternative to moving house.
Our guide outlines the many aspects that can affect the overall price of a stairlift, providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision.
The price alone should not be the deciding factor when buying a stairlift, and you will understand why after reading this guide.
We can provide guide prices over the phone, but to give you an accurate quote, we would need to arrange a free home visit to assess your stairs, ensuring you get the best price possible and the perfect stairlift for your needs.

The most significant aspect that determines the price of a stairlift is the type of stairs you have. We have stairlifts to suit straight, curved and outdoor stairs.
A curved stairlift is a bespoke product and can cost substantially more than a straight stairlift. This is mainly due to the fact that the rail on a curved stairlift needs to be custom-built to fit your stairs. It also features more complex technology compared to a straight stairlift to ensure that it can navigate turns on the stairs safely and smoothly. Additional curves on a staircase add to the overall price, another reason why we need to visit your home.
Our team has over 15 years’ experience working with stairlifts, so you can rest assured that we will only provide you with one of the most reliable stairlifts on the market, equipped with the latest technology and safety features, ensuring you get the perfect stairlift.
Our stairlifts come with many features as standard including a safety seatbelt, easy to use controls, folding seat, armrests and footrests, soft stop and start motion, safety sensors, battery back-up, adjustable seat height, and a key switch to prevent unauthorised use.
Additional features that can influence the price:
Powered swivel seat: A manual swivel seat is fitted as standard. It operates like an office chair; you turn the seat by slightly twisting your upper body to face the landing before stepping off. A powered swivel seat has the added benefit of turning the chair automatically for you, a recommended feature if you have any upper body impairment.
Powered footrest: A powered footrest will fold up automatically when the stairlift seat is lifted, removing the need to bend down.
Powered folding hinge rail: Is there a doorway close to the bottom of your stairs? A powered folding hinge rail will automatically fold away, eliminating any obstruction or trip hazard.
Increased weight capacity: We can provide lifts that can carry up to 190kg/30st.
How Much Does a Stairlift Cost to Run?
A stairlift is very economical to run. Stairlifts are designed to be connected to an electrical source at all times. While the stairlift is battery driven, these batteries require electricity to remain fully charged. The stairlift rail is fitted with charging points at the bottom and top of the stairs so that the batteries charge when the lift is parked and not in use. Extra charging points are available at other locations on the rail if required.
Keeping your lift charged will ensure that it continues to work in the event of a power failure (on full charge expect your stairlift to run for 10 -15 journeys before it stops). Leaving your stairlift off charge will also result in the batteries depleting, which will incur a call-out charge to replace (not covered under the 2-year warranty).
We recommend servicing your stairlift annually after the initial two-year warranty period has expired; this ensures that your lift remains in full working order for many years to come.
Value Added Tax Rates for Stairlifts
The standard VAT rate for a stairlift in Spain is 21%. If the stairlift is for a person with a disability, a reduced VAT rate of 10% applies. Some people may be eligible for a super reduced rate of 4%, depending on their disability. Visit https://www.agenciatributaria.es for further information.
