The difference can be in the way the controls are made, the maximum weight capacity, whether they are made for outdoor stairs or indoor stairs, straight stairs, or even spiral type stairs. You can find the different ones if you look online. In terms of chair lifts for stairs prices, these things will typically run you at least $1,000. Most of them will run in the $3,000 range. The seat of the chair lift can come in different variations of comfort as well.
