When you’re shopping for a stairlift, you’ll be presented with the choice between a brand new stairlift or a reconditioned stair lift. Allowing more flexibility with your budget, a second hand reconditioned stairlift may be an appealing option. But before you take the plunge, you might have some reservations such as ‘are reconditioned stairlifts reliable?’ and ‘are reconditioned stairlifts safe?’
Here we take a closer look at preloved stairlifts, answering all your frequently asked reconditioned stairlift questions. Halton Stairlifts highlight the benefits that used stairlifts offer, so you can decide for yourself whether they’re the right choice for you.
What is a reconditioned stairlift?
A reconditioned stair lift is a used stairlift that has been fully serviced and returned to an excellent condition ready for re-sale.
Fully refurbished stairlifts are available for straight and curved staircases. Take a look at the great range of reconditioned Acorn straight stairlifts, reconditioned Brook slimline stairlifts, and reconditioned Stannah stairlifts or our reconditioned curved stairlifts from Halton Stairlifts.
Are reconditioned stairlifts reliable?
Reconditioned stairlifts are reliable and safe.
All UK stairlifts are manufactured to exacting safety standards outlined by the British Safety Institution, and are typically built to last at least ten years with the right care and maintenance. So even though a reconditioned stairlift has been owned or used by someone else before, there is still plenty of life left in it yet.
At Halton Stairlifts, our highly trained, fully qualified, and experienced stairlift engineers carry out any repairs, upgrades, and maintenance on all preloved stairlifts. From replacing worn parts to installing new rollers and cables, every used stairlift is carefully restored to meet the highest safety and quality standards.
Once you’ve found the best stairlift to meet your requirements, our engineers will install your reconditioned stairlift. Proper installation by an experienced fitter will help to identify and fix any problems with the used stairlift system before it’s fully operational.
With this in mind, there should be no difference in the reliability and safety of a reconditioned stairlift compared to a brand new model.
