Frequently Asked Questions - Click Here for Stairlift FAQ
  1. What’s the price of a stairlift?
That depends!  Stairlift elevator cost is going to be determined by things such as the stairway, budget, and person’s mobility. A free in-home estimate will do a formal survey of the stairs to check the clearances and a good conversation with the potential users about their needs. Part of our service is to offer a no obligation appointment to talk with you about these factors and recommend the best stairlift to suit your needs. When you schedule a free in-home visit, our promised to you is to be thorough, considerate and leave you an itemized quote for what you need. We will not push any specific solution; you’re the boss!  Call us now to schedule your visit and find out the price of the stairlifts that would fit you and your home.
  1. Can I rent a Stannah stairlift? 
Yes. Stannah stairlifts are sold and rented in the Washington, D.C. metro area by Bedco Mobility, Inc.  Rental stair lifts are a good option if there is only a short term need or uncertain circumstances.  These straight stairlifts are always brand-new units so that they can be converted from rental to purchase and kept if circumstances change.  Give us a call to find out about our rental program.
  1. How much does installation cost?
It’s free!  Installation is part of a quoted estimate on a stairlift.  Stairlifts are moving pieces of equipment and should be installed by skilled technicians to ensure their operation and safety.  Bedco Mobility is a licensed Elevator Contractor in Washington, D.C. and Maryland, and an Accessibility Contractor (ASC) in Virginia with in-house technicians who are also licensed, fully insured, with years of experience.  Nothing is subbed out.   Installations come with full demonstrations and training on your new stairlift.  Give us a call now to find out what else we offer as part of our service and hear about our state of the art digital scheduling and ticketing service program.
  1. Are there narrow stairlifts?
Bedco Mobility has been installing and servicing stairlifts in the DC Metro Area for over 60 years.  We’ve seen technology advance and lifts be able to fit on narrower and narrower stairs. There’s almost no stairway that is too narrow for one of our stairlifts. If you’re still not sure, give us a call. A free in-home estimate will allow us to survey the stair clearances and see which narrow stairlift works best for you. Our time is for you: information and advice with no strings attached is part of our service – take advantage of it!
  1. Can Stannah stairlifts go around turns in the stairs?
Yes, no problem!  Even if your stairs have landings, bends, or even a spiral, we can handle it.  If you need a continuous ride from floor to floor and have landings, a curved stairlift would be a good solution for you.  These stairlifts ride on rails bent per stairway to perfectly match the bends in the layout so that you can safely get from bottom to top without transferring or trying to do stairs.  These chairlifts also come with a drawing for approval so you can double check the layout before anything is manufactured.  They are measured with a digital photo measuring system, to the millimeter, so they are guaranteed to fit.  Feasibility drawings are free of charge, if you want to see a formal layout of your curved stairlift with your quote, just ask!  Call us today for a free survey.
  1. Are Used Stairlifts a viable solution?
Yes, if your budget is limited, there are plenty of good options that are gently used.  Bedco Mobility has the largest inventory of used stairlifts in the Mid-Atlantic.  These lifts are well kept and meticulously prepped prior to install, and still come with a parts and labor guarantee.  Amazingly you can also do used curved stairlifts by pairing a used chair with new rails made for your stairs.  Again that’s a great way of gaining independence while taking care of your budget.  Our free in-home estimates will always mention potential used stairlift options during the visit.
  1. Everyone says they’re the best – what should I look for in a stairlift?
So true.  The internet is a great tool for research but also leads to information overload and a lot of exaggerated claims.   When considering a stairlift there are two major factors – the equipment & the local company.  Equipment should be made by established manufacturers who offer multiple models and standard safety features.  The local company should have length experience in the area, with proven results.  Start ups or solo operations can be risky.  Be sure that your local provider has multiple technicians dedicated to stairlifts so that your stairlift will be properly maintained in the future.  Our experience is second to none, we have thousands of customers in this area – including commercial work at Georgetown University, University of MD, Children’s Hospital, Walter Reed, DC Public Schools, Seneca Valley HS, Mater Dei, Holton Arms, Gonzaga, on and on!  Customers have a voice online – read the reviews!
