How Much Does a Stair Lift Cost?
The stair lift cost may range from $2500 to $15,000 depending on the type of stair lift. A straight stair lift (no bends) up to 13 steps cost about $2500 to $5000 depending on the city and state.

Some dealers offer to rent stair lifts. It is really a coin toss as to best option. Rental offers a lower initial cost but if you plan on using it for any length of time, the cost start to overcome the benefit of renting it.
There are a number of manufacturers of stair lifts. Harmar, Acorn and Bruno are two that are well know. One of the main considerations in choosing a brand of stair lift is does it have local support should anything go wrong. In this day and age of changing landscapes, the durable medical equipment business is in a state of flux. Many individuals have an stair lift installed and never have to call the installer until the batteries need replacing only to find they have closed. Use a long standing dealer and a national company when selecting a stair lift.
