Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a stair lift cost?

  • A stair lift should cost between $3000 and $4000 including installation. This price describes the cost of having a new, straight stair lift installed. When considering an outdoor or curved stair lift, the cost can increase significantly. However, the cost of a stair lift can vary greatly from home to home. Check out our blog post about Stair Lift Prices, or give us a call to set up a free consultation where we will provide you with an accurate quote in writing.

Will a stair lift work if the power goes out?

  • Yes, every stair lift that we install is powered through the use of two 12 volt batteries. When the stair lift is installed, we plug the battery charger into a standard wall socket, meaning no additional wiring is necessary in the majority of homes. When the stair lift is parked, it charges the batteries so it will be ready for the next use. Some units can make up to 60 trips on a single charge. The Handicare 1100 stair lift has a continuous charge strip, allowing the lift to charge at any point on the rail.

Can a stair lift be installed outside?

  • Yes, outdoor stair lifts are available from Options HME Stair Lifts. Not every stair lift can be installed in the outdoors though. A regular stair lift can not be installed outside. Outdoor stair lifts are specifically designed to handle the wet/dry and hot/cold conditions of the outdoors. They are an excellent option for the stairs leading to your front porch or back deck.

Is there enough room for other people to still use the stairs with a stairlift installed?

  • In most cases, yes. Options HME Stair Lifts carries one of the narrowest stair lifts on the market, the Harmar Pinnacle SL600. It only sits 11.5 inches from the wall when folded up. In the majority of homes, this leaves plenty of room for other people climbing the stairs to easily get past the stair lift. There are a few cases with very narrow stair cases where it can be a challenge, but we will discuss this with you prior to the installation.
