How much does it cost to buy a Stiltz Home Lift?
The average cost of a home lift in the UK can vary anywhere between £15,000 and £20,000, depending on the model you choose.
The model you choose will play the biggest part in determining the overall cost of your domestic lift investment. There are several models available in the Stiltz range and each brings its design and functionality benefits to the table. Here at Multicare Mobility, we stock 4 different Stiltz homelifts; The Duo Classic, The Duo+, The Trio Classic and The Trio+. Taking the time to find the right model for your needs is essential.
Once you’ve decided on the best home lift for you, there are other optional extras that may raise the initial price of your home lift. These include bespoke colours and finishes, or added safety features such as an in-car rail or seat which will increase the safety and security of the user as necessary.
How much does it cost to install a Home Lift?
Domestic Lift installation costs can vary depending on a wide range of factors such as homelift location, how many levels the home lift will be required to travel through and structural changes to the property.
Stiltz Home Lifts are provided with tracks which are designed to support the lift which remove the need for load-bearing walls. This not only means added flexibility with where you can place your home lift, it can lessen the amount of building work needed to install it. Some properties may still require minor structural changes such as moving pipes and wiring. At Multicare, we can offer a free home assessment to discuss your available options for placement, after which, we can provide you with a fixed quote for installation.
How much does it cost to run a Home Lift?
Once a Stiltz home lift has been installed there are next to no running costs. The Stiltz Lift has been designed to be energy efficient to keep the essential everyday use of the lift affordable and cost efficient. All of the models we stock run from a standard 13 amp socket, which is the same used by many small household appliances like a kettle. The durable nature of Stiltz products also means it’s very unlikely for there to be any breakdowns with your lift, this being said, regular servicing is recommended to help stay on top of any wear and tear and prevent any potentially costly emergency repairs.
