Stairlift prices

How much does a stairlift cost?

How much does a stairlift really cost? The price of a stairlift depends on 3 factors: the type of stairlift (straight or with curves), the options and whether the stairlift is new or second-hand.

But, one thing is sure: whether you choose a new or used stairlift at Summit, you will always be offered the very best price!

The price of a stairlift

Three factors determine the price of a stairlift:


  • the type of stairlift
  • the condition of the stairlift – new or used
  • the options


Allow us to explain further.

Types of stairlifts

There are 3 types of stairlifts: straight stairlifts, stairlifts with one curve, and stairlifts with several curves. The general rule is: the more curves, the more expensive the stairlift. The price of a stairlift will go up if the stairlift needs to span more than one floor.


The most expensive part of the stairlift is the rail on which the seat is attached. The rail must follow the incline and the curves precisely. This means that straight stairlifts are the easiest to make – and to reuse. That is also why straight stairlifts are less expensive.


In practice, most people need a stairlift with one or more curves. This has to do with the shape of the staircase, but also with the amount of space required at the top of the landing for parking the seat.

New or second-hand stairlifts

By choosing a used stairlift instead of a new model, you will easily save thousands of dollars. Because Summit Stairlifts offers three different brands in its assortment, with both new and used models, we will almost always have the right stairlift for your budget.


As far as our stairlift prices are concerned, you can be sure that we will not raise our stairlift prices – only to offer a discount again later. We know how much stairlifts cost to purchase, how these need to be modified and what the margin is to keep our company running. That is exactly what we base our prices on. You are immediately offered our very best price, no nonsense.

The options

Automatic swivel seat, specially painted rail or specially upholstered seat. Extra options will increase the price of the stairlift. The more options you choose, the higher the price of the stairlift. All of the safety options are, of course, already included in the price as standard.


You also have several options when it comes to choosing the rail. The simpler the rail, the lower the cost. For example, by choosing not have a parking curve made, but to have the rail stop at the base of the stairs, you will lower the cost. The seat will then be parked at the bottom of the stairs. A rail along the outside is also cheaper because the it doesn’t have to be as steep when placed along the outside wall. For safety reasons, running the rail along the outside isn’t always desirable – the staircase must be wide enough for it.
