Lifts for Curved Stairways

Stairlifts That Go Around Corners

Curved staircases make a striking architectural statement when designed and installed in the home, but a problem occurs when the owner, through old age, illness or a disability finds those same stairs difficult to climb up or down. Grab rails are no longer enough.

Curved Lifts Prices

The same is true for a curved lift in that it cannot be installed direct from stock, but has to be custom measured and designed to suit the exact stairs that it will be going on.

Currently, there are quite a few manufacturers and suppliers in the UK who offer curved units, with each having a wide range of designs of these products to appeal to different needs.

An approximate cost for this kind of model ranges approximately from £2500 to £6000 which is a reconditioned cost at the lower end, up to a top end new lift with more than one turn and with the addition of extra powered options. Before you contact a good supplier or manufacturer, it is important that you take time to do your research, which we can help you with.

Choosing The Best Supplier For Your Stair Lift

The best supplier to get your model from is one with a good reputation. A good reputation is established through the provision of quality products and services that meet the specific needs of different customers over the years, with many different conditions, and with varied layouts of staircase.

Many manufacturers and suppliers of stair lifts have websites which they relay information on regarding the different models and you might have learnt a few of the basics by visiting them, but if you wish to avoid being pestered by call centre sales staff we can send you out some brochures for you to consider in your own time at home without any pressure or hassle.

Lift Rental

There are now a number of curved brand manufacturers offering rental schemes for their lifts.  If someone will only require a lift for a very short while then it might be cheaper for them to choose to hire one, however the installation costs are usually a minimum of £300 with monthly rental charges on top.

When the lift is no longer required the family would be charged a professional removal fee, often of a similar amount to the installation.  So think carefully about the length of time required as it may end up being cheaper overall to buy a reconditioned lift that will suit a staircase with turns, than rent one longer term.  For our advice on the best suppliers for rentals please fill out the contact form on this page.
