How much do our domestic lifts cost?

A home lift is an investment that can have a huge impact on the quality of a person’s life. A home (or domestic) lift is more versatile and elegant than a stairlift and will suit a house with any type of staircase. More and more people in the UK and overseas are now choosing to have a residential lift installed.

How much does it cost to have an home elevator, or through-floor lift installed in a typical house? Domestic home lift prices are dependent on a multitude of factors, and this is why Terry Lifts offers a FREE survey of your home to give you a fairly accurate price quotation.

Factors affecting the cost of your home lift:

  • The lift model you choose (Click here to see our home lifts range)
  • The specifications of the lift (Optional features and finishes)
  • Number of stops required
  • The degree of preparation work required
  • Where you are located

The price of a lift will depend on the type and model you require. Steplifts start from £4,500 excluding VAT. Homelifts start from as low as £9,000 excluding VAT.  These prices are for the budget models and include supply, installation and warranty.  The cost of building work, i.e creating a platform for a step lift or an aperture for a through-floor lift, would be in addition.  Call and book a Terry Lifts no obligation survey for an accurate price, on 0800 247 1228.

When considering a home lift, you should weigh it against the inconvenience and disruption that having to move house can have on your life. Depending on your staircase, a home lift may not cost you significantly more than a stairlift, and it can add value to your property which a stairlift generally won’t do!
