“How much does a stairlift cost?” The costs of stairlifts vary and are dependent upon many different factors, some of which include; style, make, model, where you purchase the unit from, etc.
There is no (one-size-fits-all) solution when it comes to stairlift equipment, which is why it is essential to understand what type of stairlift you need to gather the most accurate pricing estimates.
To begin your stairlift research, determine what type of chair lift is necessary to meet your mobility and installment needs at the same time…
Will you need your stair chair lift to travel in a straight line, or will you need a unit capable of changing directions and maneuvering around corners/opticals?
Once you have an idea of what you need, it will be easier to compare stairlift prices and make the best decision.
There are two main types of stairlifts you must decide between first, a straight lift, or a curved one.
Straight stairlifts are the most common. They come with a standardized straight rail, designed to fit most straight staircases and travel in one direction- up or down the track in a straight path.
Curved stairlifts come with a custom railing system designed to safely navigate curves, turns, and intermediate landings when traveling up or down a curved staircase.
NOTE – Straight stairlifts that do not require custom modifications or curved tracks, generally cost less than custom curved stairlifts. Also, both types of chair lifts come with indoor and outdoor options.
Stair climber costs can vary depending on several factors, some of which include:
Stairlift costs for a straight staircase typically range between $2,200 – $5,000, depending on whether the unit is pre-owned or brand new.
The final price for a straight stairlift will depend on the dealer you use, the model you’ve selected, and any additional features you’ve chosen, such as a folding rail or power swivel seat.

If you need a lift for a curved staircase or a (straight staircase with a landing), usually a custom track will have to be made to fit the staircase, which will, of course, cost you more.
Costs for a curved stairlift generally start at around $9,000 – $9,500 and rise from there depending on upgrade options and staircase configuration.
Outdoor stairlifts are great for patio steps, decks, and docks that are difficult or even dangerous to navigate without secure assistance.
Much like indoor lifts, outdoor stair climbers also come with options for straight or curved staircases.
Outdoor stairlifts are specially designed to withstand the natural elements (heat, cold, rain, etc.) and maintain optimal functionality outdoors.
Straight outdoor chair lifts generally cost between $3,000 and $7,000, Whereas curved outdoor chair lifts start around $12,000 and increase from there depending on the length/complexity of the outdoor staircase.
