Home lift prices Homelifts
If you asked a selection of people with mobility difficulties about what they most value, the majority would probably answer that they value their personal independence. Staying independent if you suffer from arthritis, sciatica or you’re afflicted by a mobility problem enhances your mental health as well as your physical well-being.
A large part of people’s independence comes from how well they can move around their own house, and one of the most difficult parts of a house for people with mobility issues is getting up and down the stairs.
It can seem like a daunting and tiring exertion getting up and down the stairs numerous times a day. To cope with this issue, many people are forced to set up permanent living quarters downstairs or even more drastically, to move out of their homes and into bungalows or residential care. Obviously, when the only way to increase your freedom of movement is to leave your home, this can be devastating.
However, having a lift in your home gives you independence, freedom and flexibility. Not only is it a stylish option for people with mobility problems, it can also have a huge impact on your quality of life.
Unlike stairlifts, home lifts are incredibly versatile. There are models which can easily accommodate wheelchairs, and many users with painful joints find it much easier to remain standing rather than bending their knees to sit in a stairlift, especially if their staircase is narrow.
How much will a home lift cost?
People are often worried about home lift prices and unsure if there are shops or stores to visit in order to try before buying online from a supplier.
However, it’s worth doing some brief research and reading some online reviews beforehand as this will put you in a better position to choose what’s right for you.
Domestic lift prices can vary depending on the lift company and the specific type of home lift you choose to buy.
For example, you might receive a quote from a company for a “through floor lift” showing the price of the standalone lift unit, but this may exclude the cost of site preparation or installation work. You should always expect to receive a fully itemised quotation for your home lift cost including building work, based on any site survey undertaken.
For the most basic models of home lifts, prices start at about £10,000 but for more advanced home lifts with advanced settings and increased specifications, prices can range between £30,000 and £40,000.
Although these prices may seem high, it’s impossible for some people to put a price on the comfort of being able to stay in their own home. What’s more, as more and more people look into installing home lifts, they’re generally becoming more affordable and no longer just an accessory for the extremely affluent.
