Stair Lifts - Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a stair lift cost?

The cost of a straight stair lift, including installation, is typically in the $2500 to $5500 range. However stair lift prices can vary depending on the layout of your staircase, weight of the user, which model you choose, and any options you choose to add to your lift. Curved stair lift prices typically start around $12,000.

Does Options HME install stair lifts near me?

Do you service stair lifts?

Yes, we will service any stair lift purchased from Options HME for as long as you own the lift, even long after the 1 year warranty on labor we provide.

What stair lift warranty do you offer?

We provide a 1 year labor warranty on every stair lift we install. The parts warranty ranges from 1 year up to lifetime coverage, depending on which model you choose. 

How much space do they take up in the stairs?

We carry the narrowest stair lift on the market, which can fold up to as little as 10.5″ from the wall. This means others have more space to use the stairs when the lift is not in use.

Does insurance cover stair lifts?

Unfortunately, insurance does not cover stair lifts in most cases. Medicare does not pay for stair lifts, but Medicaid may in some limited circumstances. We do offer stair lift financing for those who are interested.

Where are your stair lifts made?

We work primarily with three manufacturers. Our Harmar stair lifts are Made in USA at Lake Winnebago, MO. Handicare manufacturers lifts in St. Louis, MO and Sweden. The UP Stairlifts we offer are built in the Netherlands.

Will my 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. They will power the lift during a power outage. Some models, like the Harmar Pinnacle SL600 can make up to 60 trips on a single charge. When we install your stair lift, 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.

Does a stair lift attach to the wall?

Nope! Our stair lifts do not attach to the wall or require any home modification. They attach directly to the treads of the steps & can be removed later with little evidence that a stair lift was ever installed.
