What's the cost of a chairlift (or stairlift as someone calls it)?

Hi, I'm looking for some information about the possibility of installing a stairlift chair in my house since my dad is coming to live with me. Because of his poor health conditions this aid is indispensable to him. Now, I'm looking for a good quality stairlift even if I don't know what exactly to consider to buy the right product. Can you suggest me any reliable companies operating in this field? And what are average stairlift prices?

Well, I know that Golden Technology is one of the best producer of chair lifts for stairs and mobility products in general. I got to know it when I was looking for a stair ramp. Consider that there are different types of stair lifts according to the stairs' shape: straight, curved and L-shaped lifts. Obviously, straight lifts are cheaper. Youc an find new stair lift from about £ 1,600.

If you want to keep costs down, consider that you can get a recondition straight stair lift for £ 1,300 and a curved one for £ 3,000. I bought it for my mum and I can ensure that reconditioned models are almost as good as new ones since they are bought by the same manufacturers and fixed up in case of problems. As to the manufacturer, I can suggest you Bruno stair lifts but if your dad is taying with you just for a period, you might also decide to rent a stair lift. That would be definitely more convenient!

The type of stair lift you need depends also on the degree of illness of your dad. If he is just old a stair lift is enough but consider that there are also disabled stair lifts for those people who move on a wheelchair. As to the shape, consider that a curve stair lift can be perfectly substituted by two staright stair lifts. Maybe this will make earn some money. Also take into account that disabled can get a reduced rate of 5% VAT for the purchase and installation of the stair lift.
