What is the Cost of a Rental Stairlift?

One of the main advantages of stairlift rentals is their cost-effectiveness, giving you and your budget more flexibility without reducing your options for better mobility. Our stairlift rental scheme is an efficient and straightforward choice, as we will always be clear about any rental charge – with Senior Stairlifts, you’ll never be surprised by hidden costs or fees. 

We strive to give you ultimate value for money, which means we charge an upfront cost that covers the price of installing and removing your temporary stairlift, plus the first six monthly payments.

After this, there is a small weekly charge for the duration you have the stairlift. 

This fee can change depending on models of stairlift – such as if it is a straight or curved track stairlift – or if you need optional powered extras for a higher level of care. These extra maintenance costs will always be outlined to you by our team, and if there is anything you don’t understand or would like to have prices broken down, we’ll always be on hand to help.

Want to find out more and chat with one of our expert engineers directly? Call us today and we’ll find the best rental plan for your stairlift.

Looking For Other Affordable Stairlifts? Buy Reconditioned

If you decide you are enjoying using your mobility device but are still worried about the expense of maintenance or the outright purchase cost, a reconditioned stairlift is a great next step.

The price of reconditioned stairlifts is a much more affordable alternative to the average cost of a brand-new stairlift, and Senior Stairlifts offer them in a wide range of leading brands and models. 

A reconditioned stairlift is a stairlift that has already been used before, but the previous owner has decided to return it to us. Every single one of our reconditioned units are often no older than 12 months, and our expert engineers replace any parts that may need addressing, such as hygiene components including seats and rails, so you get a clean and comfortable stairlift every time.

To ensure your family maximum safety and security, we put every one of our reconditioned stairlifts through a rigorous testing process – and will never sell you a product that you don’t feel completely safe with.

But in the unlikely event that something does happen, we offer a 24-month parts and labour warranty with every reconditioned lift, which can be extended for guaranteed peace of mind.

If you’re still curious or would like to explore even more mobility options with us at Senior Stairlifts? Drop us a message today and our dedicated team can talk you through a solution suited for every budget.

Although we can’t always guarantee this, in some situations we can even have your fitting completed on the same day. 

One of the best aspects of stairlift rental is that you are free to use it for as long as you need following your installation, without the worry of upfront expense. Should you no longer need your stairlift and decide to end your rental period, just give us a call and we’ll remove it. Our careful and considerate engineers will leave your staircase exactly as we found it.

Is it better to rent or buy a stairlift?

One of the main questions that we’ve been asked over the years is whether it’s better to rent or buy a stairlift – especially when people are seriously considering their budget during a cost of living crisis.

At Senior Stairlifts, we understand that anyone thinking of acquiring a new mobility solution will have their own unique and individual circumstances. That’s why we can help you make the best decision for you, taking into account your own bespoke requirements, so your stairlift gives you complete peace of mind.

When it comes to purchasing a mobility solution if you’re planning on using your stairlift for many years, then investing in a stairlift of your own is likely the best choice.

Although this may seem like an extra expense at first glance, at the end of its use you will end up spending less – having saved money that would have otherwise gone to an extended rental period with the alternative.

This is also a great option for customers who do not own a straight staircase. This is because rentals, in most cases, are almost exclusively designed for a free running flight of stairs – which excludes spiral staircases or those with unique layouts. Whenever there are curves in a staircase, it means that it has to be custom-built and installed, instead of rented.

However, for those looking to use a stairlift for a limited period of time, renting is a much more cost-effective choice. All you need to pay is the first six months rental payment, an upfront fee to cover the cost of our speedy installation and removal – then a small monthly rental charge for however long it is required.

Stairlifts are rented for a variety of reasons. A stairlift is a great way to test out a stairlift if you aren’t sure whether you want one, so for a few months, you can try living with a stairlift and see how it affects you – without having to worry about making a significant investment.

It may be that you never use the stairlift, or that the stairlift has become an essential part of your life and you can’t live without it. No matter what you decide, our team is always available to help you.

Whatever your reason, one of the main benefits of stairlift rental is this straightforward costing, which makes budgeting a breeze, as well as a choice from several leading makes.

To find out more about rental stairlift prices or to discuss your needs, our Stairlift professionals will be more than happy to chat and answer any questions you may have.

At Senior Stairlifts, our rental solutions boast many of the leading makes and models of stairlifts available on the market.

After all, just because you are renting a stairlift, it shouldn’t mean that you should compromise on the quality you can expect from us if you were buying outright.

As such, have an array of rental stairlifts in stock, boasting names such as:

  • Acorn
  • Brooks
  • Handicare
  • Platinum
  • Stannah
  • ThyssenKrupp
  • Bespoke

Please keep in mind that fee can change depending on the model of stairlift that’s best suited to your home – curved track stairlift – or if you need optional powered extras such as swivel seating.

As always, these extra maintenance costs will always be outlined to you by our team, and if there is anything you don’t understand or would like to have prices broken down, we’d be more than happy to do so.

The best way to find out which solution will suit you is to get in touch with us for a tailor-made, person-first service. We’re always keen to hear from customers old and new!

We know that choosing stairlift technology can be expensive. But as a proudly independent stairlift company, we feel that our customers should never have to sacrifice their freedom, happiness, and mobility for financial reasons.

Our dedicated stairlift rental services make these fantastic pieces of technology a truly affordable mobility option for any budget – with a keen focus on helping those who can’t face the overall cost of a permanent solution for temporary assistance.

One of the main advantages of stairlift rentals is that their functionality and aesthetic are no different than any other stairlift we sell here at Senior Stairlifts. They still function exactly the same and have the same sleek innovative designs that we use for our other stairlifts, each designed to provide a smooth and seamless trip up and down a flight of stairs.

At Senior Stairlifts, we will always offer you a cost-effective and dependable solution that will suit you and your family.

Our team of experienced engineers loves nothing more than getting their teeth into a new challenge, with years of fitting stairlifts on tight, straight and unique staircases up and down the country.

So no matter what your budget is, we’ll always endeavor to try and get you moving from 24 hours after your initial query is raised with our team.

If you or a member of your family are considering a temporary stairlift – but are concerned about the potential costs – then we can help.
