When you’re shopping for a stairlift, you may be left with a choice between buying a brand new stairlift or a reconditioned stair lift.

First, weigh up the pros and cons of new stairlifts vs reconditioned stairlifts. Then, take a closer look at preloved stairlifts and their benefits. Answering all your frequently asked reconditioned stairlift questions, we highlight all the advantages of buying a used stairlift. This way you’ll feel more confident deciding whether a reconditioned stairlift is the right choice for you and your home.
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, reconditioned stairlifts are a fantastic option for many stairlift users.
Fully refurbished stairlifts are available for both straight and curved staircases. So no matter the layout of your home, you’re sure to find a great match. If you need a reconditioned straight stairlift, start browsing and take a look at our great range of reconditioned Acorn straight stairlifts, reconditioned Brook slimline stairlifts, and reconditioned Stannah stairlifts. Or if you’re looking for a used curved stairlift, take your pick from the reconditioned curved stairlifts collection by 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 each stairlift is built to last at least ten years. So you can expect them to last a long time. As long as it is cared for and maintained properly, the user is unlikely to encounter any technical problems. So even if 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. This can include anything 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 which meets your requirements, our fitters will install it. Correct installation by an experienced fitter helps with identifying and troubleshooting any potential problems before they arise. Because we can respond in a timely manner, the fitting should go smoothly and your stairlift will be fully operational in no time at all.
With all of this in mind, there’s no difference in the reliability and safety of a reconditioned stairlift compared to a brand new model.
