How Much Does a Ceiling Hoist Cost?

Ceiling hoists are an essential piece of handling equipment that can be used to transfer and support users safely from room to room or within an area, requiring minimal aid from carers. Read to find out more about how much a ceiling hoist costs.

The price of ceiling hoists generally differ depending on a number of factors but can cost between £1,800 and £3,500.

Most hoists are extremely versatile products and can be installed to meet patients’ very specific requirements. With GoLift hoists, you can either install a portable ceiling hoist or a standard hoist which can support varied weight capacities.

Factors which can impact the cost of a ceiling hoist:

Type of track system

This is perhaps the largest factor when it comes to influencing costing. While some patients require a standard straight-track system, those with more complex requirements may need an XY frame ceiling track (also known as a H-Frame track system).

XY hoist systems are designed and installed to cover a larger surface area, which therefore requires the installation of multiple tracks. The resulting cost of this can be approximately £2,400 - £3,500, while a standard straight track system can cost from £1,800 to £3,000.

Weight capacity

The GoLift ceiling hoist comes in three versions which can be installed to accommodate patients of various weights. This includes the GoLift 400 (up to 28st/178kg), GoLift 700 (up to 50st/318kg) or GoLift B1000 (up to 72st/457kg). Depending on which you choose, the price can increase considering the additional components needed to ensure that the system can support the patient’s weight safely.

Time taken to install

With more complex systems, the time taken for installation can be unavoidably longer than for simpler setups. if you decide to install an inset ceiling hoist, this may increase the time taken as well as the pricing. This also applies if you wish to extend your existing hoist systems to match up with a new system, which will require careful design work and specialist equipment.

The patient’s needs

Ceiling hoists are very personal systems, and are designed and installed through careful consideration of a patient’s requirements. For example, a person who is completely unable to travel without the aid of a hoist might require the installation of a complex track system that allows them to move between various rooms. A person with a temporary, or less immobilising illness or injury may require a smaller scale and therefore less expensive ceiling hoist.
