Buying a reconditioned stairlift is daunting for many reasons. How long will I be able to use the stairlift? How much will it cost? What do I need to know before I make a stairlift purchase? These are all questions that you may have about buying a stairlift. When purchasing a reconditioned stairlift, it’s important to choose a reliable stairlift, which is good quality and will last for many years. Reconditioned stairlifts come in various models and prices, so it can be difficult to know what you want. Here, we’ll tell you what you need to know before buying a reconditioned stairlift from Prime Stairlifts.

What Is A Reconditioned Stairlift?

Once someone no longer needs a stairlift, they have the option of selling or donating their stairlift, so it becomes a reconditioned stairlift. A reconditioned stairlift is a stairlift that has been used and owned previously for 3 years or less. Reconditioned stairlifts work the same way as brand-new ones. Any parts that need replacing, such as the seat or motor, will be repaired or replaced to ensure the stairlift runs as new. All reconditioned stairlifts go through the same rigorous testing we put all our brand new stairlifts through, and we don’t sell stairlifts until they are guaranteed to be entry safe.

What To Look For In A Reconditioned Stairlift?

When buying a reconditioned stairlift, you’ll want to make sure that the company you buy the stairlift from is reputable. At Prime Stairlifts, we prepare and test all models thoroughly before leaving us for their new homes to ensure they are in complete working order. Any worn or broken parts on our refurbished stairlifts will be replaced with genuine manufacturer parts. We only ever offer products that perform exceptionally and reliably and are comfortable. A stairlift will only receive the reconditioned seal of approval when it meets our rigorous quality and safety standards.

* While parts undergo replacement, it’s important to note that the upholstery on a reconditioned stairlift may show signs of use. 

Why Buy A Reconditioned Stairlift? 

Many people buy used stairlifts because they are affordable, provide excellent value, and are helpful, especially if you need something quickly. The most significant benefit of buying a reconditioned stairlift is that you’ll be able to get the same quality as many new models without having to pay full price. When you buy a reconditioned stairlift, you’ll be able to get the same quality assurance as a brand-new one, but for much cheaper.

These devices not only provide a convenient way to get up and down the stairs, but they can also help prevent falls by providing a way for people to maintain their balance. In addition to being helpful from a safety perspective, you’ll also save money on purchasing a reconditioned stairlift.

What Is The Cost Of A Reconditioned Stairlift?

One of the first things you’ll want to know when buying a stairlift is how much it will cost. Reconditioned stairlifts are available in various price ranges, so it’s important to decide which one works with your budget. As the cost of a stairlift goes up, the quality usually does as well. At Prime Stairlifts, our reconditioned stairlifts cost between £995-£1500.

What Type Of Warranty Does A Reconditioned Stairlift Offer?

A reconditioned stairlift will typically come with a 12-month warranty. This may be shorter than what you would find for an un-reconditioned stairlift. However, Prime Stairlift’s offer extended warranties that range from one year to three years. This is good to know if you’re on the fence about purchasing a new or used stairlift.
