How to choose a stair lift in Sioux City

Sioux City Skyline

When looking for a stair lift in Sioux City, consider your staircase, your budget and how long you expect to need it.

The most common types of stair lifts in Sioux City include:

  • Straight stair lifts that fit regular, straight staircases. They are usually the cheapest option and do not require customization.
  • Curved stair lifts that go around turns, up multiple levels or across landings. These must be custom-designed and profesionally installed, making them more expensive than straight stair chairs.
  • Outdoor stair lifts that function the same as indoor straight and curved lifts but are made of more durable materials that resist the weather.
  • Perch stair lifts or standing stair lifts that are best for those with who have trouble moving from a standing to sitting position. These lifts have a platform that riders stand on to be transported up or down the stairs.

Buyers can customize their stair lifts with safety belts, adjustable arms, colored upholstery and even automated accessories, like swivel seats or footrests.

What’s the cost of stairway chair lifts in Sioux City?

Expect to pay between $2,500 and $4,000 for the purchase and installation of a straight stair lift in Sioux City. If you need a custom model due to a curved stairway or multiple landings, the price of your stair lift can be over $12,000.

Most Sioux City stair lift companies give free consultations and quotes. The quote typically includes the cost of the product, installation and warranty.

If you’re worried about the expense of a stair lift, ask your Sioux City installer about discounts, specials and financing offers. Used stair lifts are a great option for anyone with a small budget, too. If you only need a stair lift for a short time, consider a rental.

Yes, some Sioux City companies offer rental options for a few months. Typically, rentals are only available for straight stair chair lifts, though.
