Prices for a Wheelchair Stair Lift

indy lux stair liftPrices for a wheelchair stair lift range from $1,000 to $4,200, with higher costs for curved stair cases, with prices starting at $5,950.

The price of a wheelchair stair lift depends on many factors – is it a straight or curved stair way? Is the stair lift battery operated or A/C powered? Is it a plain, basic chair lift with standard features or does it have high end upgrades, including custom upholstery and automatic folding options?


The difference between straight and curved staircases represents the biggest factor in price. Stair lifts are easily installed on straight staircases, with the rail cut to match the length of the staircase. Curved stair lifts require a custom-built rail to match the contour of the staircase, so they can maneuver through 90- and 180-degree turns.

 New or Used

If a new wheelchair stair lift doesn’t fit into your budget, you can buy a used lift that can cost half the original price. If you are going to buy a used lift, make sure you give it a thorough check up, and if you buy it from a private party, ask a medical equipment vendor to check it out. Ask the vendor if they will repair it and check with a professional who can measure the equipment to be sure it fits you.
