Features That Could Affect the Price of Your Stair Lift Rental
To determine if this option is right for you, consider the following questions to help guide you regarding features that could affect the price of your stair lift rental:
- Stair type: What type of stairs do you have? Everything from the style, the width and the length of your staircase will influence the final cost of the stair lift.
- Dimensions: What are the dimensions of the landings both at the bottom and top of the stairs in question? This is critical for the type of lift you can acquire, particularly as it regards to the user getting seated comfortably and safely on the lift.
- Obstacles: Are there any obvious obstacles that might inhibit a smooth operation of the chair lift? Such problems may include protruding windowsills, door swings, etc.
- Special features: Do you want or need special features such as higher weight capacity? When you rent a stair lift in Atlanta, such things also need to be factored in. What is the ability of the primary user? Can he or she operate a swivel lever or would a powered swivel be more suitable?
- Seat size: What size seat would the principal user most comfortably fit? It is important to make sure that the weight limit, which varies in stair lifts, is appropriate to the need.
- User abilities: What is the ability of the primary user, can he or she transition to a stair lift or do they need a vertical platform lift to carry the wheelchair or scooter, too?
Typical Stair Lift Rental Costs:
The customer is often required to pay up-front costs such as the stair lift installation cost which varies up to $600, the uninstall fee which varies up to $500, a 3 month rental term fee which varies up to $300 and a refundable deposit which varies based on the stair lift rental and home ownership circumstances. These costs can run as high as $1600 (not including the refundable deposit) which may seem high but is actually half the approximate cost of $3200 to install a new straight stair lift, including the state certification.
What’s the total cost to rent a stair lift in Atlanta? Priced on a monthly basis with an initial installation charge, the cost is very reasonable although contingent on different factors.
