Options HME Stair Lift Expertise
Options HME carries a variety of stair lift models, providing you the options necessary to choose a stairlift that fits your needs and your budget. Every stair lift we install is backed by a 1 year labor warranty. Additionally, after the 1 year warranty, we are still available to provide you stair lift service, with the option of purchasing another 1 year labor warranty or paying by hour.
The stairlifts we install also come with some of the best stair lift warranties on the market, including some models with a lifetime warranty on the motor, gears, and rail.
You can count on a professional stair lift installation from a local, family owned company who has been installing stairlifts in St. Louis and Southern Illinois since 2007.
Frequently Asked Questions
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. Not every stair lift can be installed in the outdoors though. A regular stair lift can not be installed outside. That is why some stair lifts (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.
How much does a stair lift cost?
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 price quote.
Is there enough room for other people to still use the stairs with a stairlift installed?
In most cases, yes. Options HME carries one of the narrowest stair lifts on the market, that only takes up 11.5 inches when folded up. In the majority of homes, this leaves plenty of room for other people climbing the stairs to get past the stair lift easily. 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.
