Frequently Asked Questions

1) How sturdy are these lifts to install?

More than a few companies assert the most durable in the industry is the model that offers the most substantial weight capacity at 400 lbs.. Heavier duty versions require larger batteries and more durable courses. Heavy duty versions cost more so make sure you get the model that matches the person who will use the stairlift. Always check whether the manufacturer has an established reputation for strong, safe and well-made products.

2) Does it increase or decrease the value of my home?

The complete value of your home won't depreciate. If you plan on selling your San Francisco dwelling, realtors used to urge that a stairlift be removed prior to placing your house on the California market, yet given increased life expectancy, this is no longer the case. You go or may also totally remove the stairlift with no signs of installment when you desire or no longer want it. Realtors can list that the stairlift is a high utility value for physically disabled people and the dwelling is appropriate for living that is reachable independent and when a purchaser needs it removed, then that chance is offered by them.

3) Can you build one of these yourselves?

It certainly depends upon your practical know how. It is a very daunting procedure. Because their stairs are too narrow to utilize the ones available on the market, some people decide to make a stairlift that is home made or they are trying to work on a tight budget. You can locate used stairlifts and save yourself from the built-in hassle and possible dangers of building one yourself. Some layouts are available on the Internet, nevertheless, minus the correct tools, materials and welding knowledge, this approach may take quite a long time to build as well as lots of annoyances. Also, when you compare common design plans for a stairlift to buying a tried-and-true tested model that is, a homemade version and commercial models can not compete as far as appearance and compactness. Itis a hardy method to go. Additionally, remember safety is really a dilemma for anybody who's going to rely on the raise, so it's crucial for you to do thorough testing and frequent checking of your handiwork.

4) How much do stair lifts costs?

According to Consumer Affairs, the top nine stairlift brand names starting with the finest-rated contain: Reachable Construction, Acorn Stairlifts, Rise Stairlifts, Silver Cross, Bruno, AmeriGlide, Country Home Elevator, 101 Mobility and Stannah. Specialists rate these based on many different features, factors, and suitability because of conditions. Since every stairs is different, their prices are not publicized by many of these companies. Often, they are going to beat any competitive quote. The price can vary from $1,200 to over $10,000, averaging around $3,500 for a straight stairway. Used stairlifts can cost under $2,000. Help and rental systems are available. While others don't contain setup in the price, some products are sold as complete packages including setup and also a warranty. The shape of the stairwell, the span of the track, the seat style, labor, as well as the features you desire determine the cost.

5) Are there any good options for used or recycled lifts in my area?

Yes. Reconditioned and recycled stairlifts are an option and are available. Custom designed curved stairlifts are less easy to resell, as the angles around the curves really should be an extremely close match. A recycled stairlift offers lots of edges and isn't fundamentally bad just because it is used. Many California stairlifts are bought back by stairlift companies and resell them used. A used stairlift may have been removed and resold, because the person who depended on the lift improved in their condition, they went, or the need for it was temporary. They cost considerably less than new versions. Be sure to ask some questions when buying a lift that is secondhand. Inquire about their weight as well as the prior owner /height demands. We recommend that you don't buy one that is 10 years old, because that model is close to retirement. Ask questions that are mechanical regarding the condition of the battery, the working status of the lift, the tracks, and its own motor. You can shorten the span of tracks if necessary as stated before. Nevertheless, be sure to stick to a very measured strategy for cutting tracks, because a mistake will cost you.

6) Why are they so expensive to install?

Most importantly, they help you each step of the way and comprise routine maintenance. Professional installation is considerably more economical in the long-run in terms of service, warranty and long-term care because they experienced at setup and are trained to follow safety measures. The installer is getting paid to correctly install your unit so that you don't face serious risks that do result when the manual for the first time opens and installs a stairlift. A San Francisco professional also knows just how to ensure that the stairlift follows fire exit demands, how to make sure that assure that all the proper operating features are empowered, and the charger connections are operating properly to prevent serious accidents. The price you pay to truly have a trustworthy and trained technician ensures the longevity of your purchase and your safety. Additionally, setup includes lifting a fair amount of weight. Many setups could be completed in a few hours by a professional.

7) Can you rent a stair lift for an extended period of time?

Because of individual situation you could be facing, you may need to lease a stairlift instead of purchase one. Some makers offer this option understanding that there are particular occasions when a customer may only need it for a short period of time. Maybe you are going to have company for a length period of time that may reap the benefits of its use, perhaps you lease your house, or someone in your family has had an injury or surgery and needs it temporarily. Occasionally, depending on the medical condition, you simply can not be sure how long you'll want the stairlift and renting seems like the best option on a month-to-month basis. Rental programs frequently provide a minimum of 3 months and normally comprise the setup and de-installation in the rental package. Some California companies even offer rent to own programs. Nonetheless, it is important to take into account the expense of installation and de-installation before picking this alternative instead of purchasing a stairlift that is secondhand.

8) Can the track be shortened?

Yes. The tracks could be fixed as well as the span may be reduced. Nevertheless, using the correct personal protective equipment is highly recommended. Some manufacturers of supply that is stairlifts do-it-yourself cutting instructions. Hereis the catch though. The track determines how well the stairlift will run. Ensuring you get the length of the staircase to correspond with the course length is extremely critical. Without appropriate measurements, you may discover the installation leads to more difficulties rather than relying on professional installers with experience. You might have trouble returning them depending on the yield policy should the tracks cut wrong. Most producers will merely accept returns if the track has not yet been cut, because the cut of the track is custom. We highly advise that you don't install your own stairlift or cut the course yourself. It is not very safe. Some sellers will not sell you the stairlift if you plan on installing it yourself. An incorrect shortening of the course or the wrong length of track can prove to be terribly dangerous, especially when the course is not too long. In case the individual who wants the stairlift steps off of the chair short of the ground floor or on top of the stairway, they can injure themselves. It is essential that the tracks along with the seat work just. Licensed installers will save you from lots of head aches and stress and harms that are dreadful are prevented by potential.

9) How are they powered?

You can save energy by turning it off with the remote also, when you're not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) models. One concern is whether you reside in an area that experiences a lot of power outages, since you do not want to be stranded mid-lift during a storm. (Nevertheless, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system that should be contained in your version.) Additionally, consider the price of replacing the life of the battery as well as the battery. Generally, determined by the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some favor electrical versions for reasons which range from battery life to some apparatus difficulties unique to battery versions, others prefer battery powered stairlifts, because they are able to lead to lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered negligible by the majority of manufacturers. You don't need to plug after every use in a battery charger, because the battery model has a wall plug to maintain the battery charged. Another thing to think about is the way inclined the user is, cables have to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the brand new battery and because casing and the seat on some versions have to be removed. Request instructions and see if it's something that youwill want to replace yourself. We'd be pleased to help you out. Make sure there's a spark plug within a couple of feet of the elevator, in the event you choose an electrical version. No particular outlets are essential.

10) How much do electric stair lifts cost in San Francisco?

Used electric-powered stairlifts can start at about $1,299.00, while battery-powered stairlifts can begin at about $1,399.00 in California. Both versions are comparably priced when you buy them new. The cost difference is minimal initially. In the long run, electrical-powered stairlifts may cost you if you factor in the price of maintenance and replacement batteries. Often, although there are batteries that are reasonably easy to install determined by the model it's recommended to have the battery rather than attempt to replace it yourself.

11) How much do they weigh?

The units are hefty, which is among the reasons we don't recommend trying to install them yourself. The lightest units on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (seat and track). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Seat collections and courses come in different sizes and shapes and are created of several types of stuff determined by its finest characteristics and the model.

12) Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. Since stairlifts don't attach to the wall, there are not any adjustments that are essential. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The one thing that we do advocate is that if you are intending to change the flooring or carpeting on your own stairs in the following five years, you may want to plan to do it before you install your stairlift to prevent future removal and re installation costs.
