If you have mobility difficulties, installing a home lift can make getting around your home a whole lot easier. Many people also decide to get a home lift with an eye on the future, to ensure they don’t have to move house if they experience mobility issues in later life.
Home lifts come in a few different varieties. For example, there are lifts that operate through hydraulic and non-hydraulic systems, as well as traction lifts.
One of the most popular home lift brands is Stiltz. These lifts use an innovative motor drive system which is compact and operates quietly, which makes Stiltz a good alternative to stairlifts and hydraulic lifts.
In this guide, we’ll look at the average Stiltz lift cost, including the factors to consider when budgeting for installation.
How much does a Stiltz home lift cost?
Prices for a Stiltz lift typically start from £15,000. The cost will depend on a number of different factors, starting with the type of lift you choose.
|Home lift type||Price||Average|
|Stiltz Duo||£15,000 - £18,000||£16,500|
|Stiltz Trio||£15,000 - £18,000||£16,500|
What else affects the Stiltz lift price?
Prices vary according to where you’d like the lift to be installed, the layout of your home and whether you require any extra building work to accommodate the lift.
Stiltz lift cost
When weighing up the costs of getting a Stiltz lift installed, consider the following issues that may affect the total price:
- Installation and building work – if any key fixtures or fittings are in the way of the lift, this may require additional work and costs
- The number of floors in your home
- Access issues for the installation team
- Customisation – you can add extra features to your Stiltz lift if required.
Another key factor is the configuration of lift you choose. Stiltz offers several different types, including lifts for stairwell voids/landings, sloping/vaulted ceilings, garages, cupboard-to-cupboard and more.
With so many different things to think about, it’s important to arrange a site visit and a custom quote to get a final figure for your lift installation.
