Do Your Research Before Purchasing a Stairlift
There are so many stairlift companies out there that it can be daunting to try to find the right one for you at an affordable price. However, there is no need to worry, as we are here to help. Here at Halton Stairlifts, we offer high-quality stairlifts at an affordable price across the UK.
Whether you are after a stairlift to fit seamlessly onto your curved staircase, a straight staircase, or a reconditioned one, we have everything you need in one place. Our new and curved stairlifts are slightly more expensive compared to our reconditioned stairlifts, as well as our straight ones.
This is because our curved stairlifts are made-to-measure to ensure they fit your staircase and come with a bespoke design suited to your home. However, straight stairlifts can be fitted to any straight staircase.
So, what exactly makes a reconditioned stairlift cheaper than a new one? Read on to find out!
Why Are Reconditioned Stairlifts Cheaper Than New Ones?
A pre-owned stairlift is a lift that has been pre-loved by someone else before you and resold back onto the market. Only some stairlifts that have been used are re-sold because they have to meet our health and safety standards first.
Although reconditioned stairlifts are not brand new, the quality is not compromised in any way, shape, or form. In fact, when you purchase this stairlift, you are not only getting it for a cheaper price, but you are also helping the environment.
Our used stairlifts are designed to be extremely durable and are refurbished to ensure they are in excellent condition. So, the only difference between new and reconditioned stairlifts is the price and the fact that they have previously been pre-owned.
Due to this, refurbished stairlifts are relatively cheaper compared to new ones, making them a great alternative for those interested in purchasing a stairlift at a more affordable price.
Why Are Straight Stairlifts Cheaper Than Curved?
Now that you have an understanding of what makes reconditioned stairlifts cheaper than new ones, we will explore why straight lifts are cheaper than curved ones.
As briefly discussed before, curved stairlifts have a made-to-measure track to ensure that they fit seamlessly onto your stairs, whereas straight lifts do not need as much customisation. The manufacturing cost for a curved rail is slightly higher compared to a straight one.
This is because a curved rail is made specifically to meet your home’s requirements to ensure that it fits seamlessly into the contours and edges of your staircase. The main reasons why curved stairlifts are more expensive come down to multiple factors:
- Installation costs
- Manufacturing costs
- The number of curves in the rail
So, if you own a straight staircase, you will be able to purchase a straight stairlift. However, if you own a curved stairlift but don’t want to spend a lot, you can take a look at our range of reconditioned stairlifts.
