Stairlift prices vary greatly and many factors play a role, such as the type of staircase, the desired model, location and the number of floors and curves.
With a stairlift you not only have to count on the one-time purchase costs that you see above, but you also have to pay an annual service fee to be able to ensure that the stairlift is serviced regularly and that you can get help in the event of an emergency or repair issue.
The service fee is usually 200 - 300 Pounds per year.

One of the great advantages of the AssiStep is the fact that it gives you security and support, without overcompensating. This means that you can stay active for as long as possible, with the great health benefits that comes with that.
Thanks to the patented locking mechanism, the risk of falling is significantly reduced and no care personell is required to provide additional support.
The AssiStep stair climbing aid is also a space-saver compared to stair lifts, since the railing system extends less than 4 inches out from your wall and can be installed in stairs as narrow as 23 inches.
