Home Stair Lifts
Choosing a Stair Lift
When choosing a home stair lift, you will want to consider different factors, such as:
- How much does it cost?
- Will it fit my staircase?
- Do I need to climb multiple flights?
- Which is the best brand for me?
- Will I need to have it serviced?
- Does it come with a warranty?
If you have the opportunity to see a stair lift at a friend’s house, or maybe a demo in our showroom, it is a good idea to give it a try. Sitting in the seat, using the controls, and imaging the equipment in your own home will help you with the decision.
Costs for installed stair lifts range from $2,800 to $6,000. This range is for straight stairlifts, meaning it does not have any curves or extra features at the bottom or top of the stairway. Straight stairlifts are the most common, because they can be installed in most homes. If you call Charron Medical Equipment, we can survey your home and let you know if a straight stairlift (and sometimes two straights) will meet your needs.
We install several models from the Handicare Stairlift line. In fact, Charron Medical installs more Handicare stair lifts than any other distributor in New Hampshire. Our service technicians are experienced and trained directly by Handicare. And as your local medical equipment supplier, we respond quickly to service calls.
Our showroom features the Handicare Simplicity 950. We encourage you to come by the store on 222 Main Street, Nashua (across from city hall) and try it out. Call ahead if you’d like, and we will be prepared for your visit. 603-889-7220.
Features and Options
When considering a stair lift, you might be concerned with how it will look and blend into your home décor. Stair lifts can be special ordered with a variety of custom colors or features. Please be sure to ask us about available options, such as:aHandHanHa
- Custom seat color
- Power seat swivel
- Folding footrests
- Retracting rails
- Custom curved rail lifts
A custom curved lift might be the best fit for a multi-level stair way, or landings, where a transfer between chairs is not safe or convenient. You want to stay in your home, so choosing the stair lift that best fits your needs is very important.
The process for a custom curved rail stair lift is different than a straight stair lift. The custom curve requires special measurements with a laser and digital camera. The curved rail is then manufactured for your custom installation. The result is a beautiful, permanent, custom stair lift. The cost for custom curve stair lifts starts around $10-12,000. We can provide the best estimate after measuring your stair way; custom curved rails do not require additional construction or home remodeling.
Choosing a home stair lift can be overwhelming, but if you visit our showroom and ask questions of our knowledgeable staff, you will be able to make an informed choice. Charron Medical Equipment will provide you an in-home quote, at no charge. We also offer rental stair lifts, if your need is temporary.
