How much does an Acorn Stairlift cost?

12:00am | & Tips and Advice
A Stairlift Survey Taking Measurements for Costs To Install
To estimate a cost would be deceptive.

All stairs vary in their shape size and length. When you order a stairlift from Acorn it will be made to your very own requirements in our factory. This means that the price of particular stairlifts varies.

We custom build the stairlift to your requested specifications. These may include personal features for your particular needs. We design the stairlift to suit you and your home.

Due to this to estimate a cost on our Internet site would be deceptive.

What are the running costs?

All Acorn Stairlifts have very low electricity consumption due to the rechargeable battery thats installed.

This means the lift uses electricity on an on demand basis as the battery tops itself up when required.

mA stands for milliamps this unit of measure is used to determine how much an appliance uses. It takes from 90mA (trickle charge) to 420mA (full charge) to charge the stairlifts batteries in comparison a 12w Eco bulb uses 50mA. Our stairlift on average uses as much as two eco light bulbs on trickle charge keeping the onboard battery topped up.
