The Difference between New and Used Stairlifts

At Stairlift Solutions, we understand that purchasing a stairlift is a major commitment and we strive to provide customers with advice about whether to choose a new or refurbished (or reconditioned) stairlift model. Please take a look at the points below to help you make your decision, and contact our team in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, today for more information, help, and advice.

Benefits of New Stairlifts

  • Usually Delivered Direct from the Manufacturer
  • Stairlift Parts Stocked if Required
  • Customisable to the User’s Needs
  • “Clean and Tidy” (Cosmetically Intact)
  • Variety of Finishes Available
  • More Powered Options Available, including Footrest and Swivel
  • Manufacturer’s Warranty
  • Complete Peace of Mind

Other Points to Remember

  • Quality of reconditioned stairlifts will vary tremendously.
  • Unfortunately, some companies are not as thorough with their reconditioned stairlifts.
  • You cannot mix and match different makes of stairlifts to different tracks.
  • It is easy to cut a track down to suit your straight staircase.
  • Some reconditioned straight stairlifts can be ‘re-handed’.
  • It would be easier to adapt a curved stairlift to suit a straight staircase than to adapt a straight stairlift for a curved staircase.
  • A straight stairlift with a platform installation could be a cheaper alternative to a curved stairlift installation – but not always the safest.
