How Much Does an Outdoor Wheelchair Lift Cost?

Outdoor Wheelchair Lift Cost

Outdoor wheelchair lifts can liberate you in your daily activities indoors but can also give you complete autonomy on the grounds of your home. If you are a wheelchair user or a person living with impaired mobility who wants full access outside, you can benefit from our vertical platform lifts by installing a high-quality outdoor step lift.

But how much do outdoor wheelchair lifts cost? As leading designers and installers, we can tell you that the following factors will come into play:

  • Type of lift: Many vertical step lifts can be quite large, whereas incline stair lifts that are suitable for outdoor use are usually comparatively small. The material costs, the complexity of the lifting mechanism and installation costs are higher on bigger lifts.
  • Platform size: Step lifts and stair lifts have a few different platform sizes to choose from, which can easily affect the cost. Wheelchair users with large electronic bariatric wheelchairs may need a bigger platform, which will influence the price of the lift.
  • Curved vs straight stair lifts: Curved stairlifts, such as for access to a rockery or up any other winding paths, require more work to fabricate, install and maintain. As a result, straight stair lifts are always simpler and have a significantly lower cost to install.
  • Complexity lift work: Being outdoors can mean a little more site preparation is often necessary and it is never easy to tell just how much landscaping or other design work is required beforehand. Awkward and cumbersome installations can cost a lot more.
  • Distance of travel: Whether you are using a step lift or a stair lift, the further the distance you go after you wheel onto the platform – the higher the costs involved. More materials, such as metal tracks or lifting mechanisms, often raises the cost.
  • Finishing requirements: A step lift or stair lift will come with several colours and finishes, as well as optional extras such as lights or additional safety features. Finishes not only cost more but may add to the overall project timeframe.

However, we can install a lift at a cost-effective rate by using our expert lift engineers, clever designs and ultra-low-energy use lifts. You can rely on our team to deliver efficient results.
