MORE than ever these days, we are looking for options to stay in our own homes longer.
If you live in a home that has outdoor or indoor stairs but are starting to struggle to manage them, try installing a stairlift to assist you.
This will mean you can stay in that home much longer and maybe you will never need to move again.
Stairlifts are designed to fit virtually any stair situation.
There are indoor and outdoor straight stairlifts, as well as indoor and outdoor curved stairlifts.
A straight stairlift that is a standard installation can be purchased and installed in Tasmania for up to $5000.
When you consider this to the cost of selling your home and buying again – which will incur real estate agent commission, advertising fees, lawyers and conveyancing fees and removalists fees totally $20,000 to $30,000 – you can see that it could also be financially practical to consider staying and installing a stairlift.
Curved stairlifts are custom designed, so the price is greater than straight stairlifts, but are usually still less expensive than selling and buying.
Stairlift installation is not as complex as people might think.
The stairlift rail is attached to the stair treads by small feet and a straight stairlift will be fitted in two to three-hours, with a curved one taking slightly longer.
Installers are experienced professionals who will fit your lift with minimal disruption and after installation, the fitter will demonstrate all the features of the stairlift and ensure you are comfortable using it before they leave.
Stairlifts are also great to help send bags of groceries or suitcases up and down stairs with the remote control option.
