What to know about buying a curved stair lift & common questions answered.
A good quality curved stairlift will cost $12,000 to $14,000 for a standard installation. The exact price will depend on the number of turns, bends, length of stairs and overall complexity of the design and installation. Outdoor lifts are a bit more expensive with the additional processes and materials to make them withstand the elements. The normal lead time for delivery and installation is 6-8 weeks. While this might be slightly longer than a few other models on the market it’s well worth the wait, especially if your accustomed to quality. The lifts are custom built in large sections tailored to your stairs to achieve the best possible fit. The larger sections also provide for a smoother ride and better operation than smaller rail pieces that are bolted together every few inches.

Curved Stair Lift Rail Designs
When deciding to purchase this type of lift it is important to note the difference between double rail lifts and single rail lifts. Shown in this picture is a double rail lift. This type of lift is very reliable using less electronics and does not require stabilizing motors to maintain the lift in a level position. Also the rails are constructed in large sections with less seams and pieces making for some of the tightest turns and bends possible.
Buying Tip: Before deciding on any lift we always recommend checking sites like Consumer Affairs and researching the manufactures information. Since this type of lift is such an investment in time and money you’ll only want to do it once and a few minutes of research can make for a much better result.
