Stiltz Home Lifts cost guide

If you have difficulties getting up and down the stairs, installing a home lift can make moving around your home a whole lot easier. Here's how much it'll cost to get a Stiltz Home Lift installed.

Many people decide to get a home lift with an eye on the future; to make sure they don’t have to move house if they experience mobility issues in later life.

There are several different types of home lift available. Hydraulic, traction, vacuum as well as electrically-powered models.

One of the most popular home lift brands in the UK is Stiltz. These lifts use an innovative motor drive system that is compact and operates quietly.

The Stiltz Home Lift will plug into a dedicated, standard domestic socket, making Stiltz a viable alternative to stairlifts and other types of lifts.

What else affects the Stiltz Home Lift price?

The total cost of installation can vary depending on where the lift is to be installed, the layout of your home and whether any extra building work is needed to accommodate the lift.

When weighing up the costs of getting a Stiltz Home Lift installed, consider the following issues that may affect the total price:

  • Installation and building work – if any key fixtures or fittings such as pipework or wiring are in the way of the lift, this may require additional work and costs to re-route
  • The number of floors in your home and how many floors you would like the lift to travel
  • Access issues for the installation team
  • Customisation – you can add extra features to your Stiltz Home Lift if required

Another key factor is the configuration of the 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, and the importance of Stiltz being able to see where the lift is to be installed, it’s vital to arrange a site visit from which a customised quote can be produced for your lift installation.
