|Should you choose a
New or Reconditioned / Used Stairlift?
There are several points you should consider when deciding
whether to purchase a new stairlift or a reconditioned / used
stairlift. Below are a few factors that could help you make up
Advantages of New Stairlift
Manufacturer warranty provided with each stairlift.
Parts readily available, as the stairlift is still current.
After-care - ie, support provided by the stairlift vendor.
New stairlifts can be built tp specification, adapting to the
users specific needs.
Disadvantages of New Stairlift
More expensive than used stairlifts - often substantially.
A curved stairlift could take 3-10 weeks depending on the level
of customization required.
Curved lifts tend to require more service over time due to their
Advantages of Reconditioned / Used Stairlift
Used stairlifts are usually much less expensive than an
equivalent new stairlift.
Advantages of Reconditioned
reconditioned stairlift will not devalue over time to the same
extent as a new stairlift, so reconditioned stairlifts as a
temporary fixture may be a better investment than an equivalent
Disadvantages of Reconditioned / Used Stair lifts
Used stair lifts have less warranty than new stairlifts -
sometimes none, depending on the reseller.
You will require a used stairlift to "match" the shape of your
stairs, which can make it harder to find a suitable lift.
Used and reconditioned stairlifts are more likely to need a
service, depending on the model and the reconditioned - at Stair
Rider, we resell only the most reliable brands, making it less
likely you will encounter problems.
Spare parts may be harder to come by if the model is no longer
made - local dealers may be unable to support the stairlift
long-term for this reason.
A used lift will require a match with your specific needs..
- side of the stairs
- length of track
- users physical size and capabilities
