Second hand stairlifts
Should you buy one?
You’ve decided you want to buy a stairlift. You’ve researched different companies, models and features. There’s a problem though, the price is a bit high. A curved stairlift would be the perfect fit for your home, but you feel like it could be out of your price range.
There are lots of options – some you may not have thought about. Have a look at what we could offer you, and be one step closer to getting your independence back.
Privately buying a second hand stairlift
A second hand stairlift seems like a good idea. You get the perks of the independence a stairlift brings, but at a lower cost. Then you ask yourself – is it a good idea?
There are lots of factors to think about if you’re buying a second hand stairlift privately. Here are some of the main ones:
- How will you install it?
- How will you know if it’s safe?
- What if something goes wrong during the installation or afterwards?
- How will you know if it’s in good condition? It might be right at the end of its working life.
- If it’s curved, it wasn’t made for your house. This might mean it takes up more room on your stairs, doesn’t fit together as well or doesn’t fit your stairs at all.
Privately buying a second hand stairlift can work out, but there is a lot more room for error. You may well end up paying more in the long run, because just about anything could go wrong – the lift could need replacement parts and it could even be installed unsafely. Who do you call if something goes wrong?
