In most cases, the average modern stairlift lasts for around ten years, so it’s a worthwhile investment to have in your home. However, after a few years of use, you may decide you want to upgrade your stairlift to a newer model. Read on to find out more about stairlift upgrades.
How to tell if your stairlift needs an upgrade
Regular servicing and general stairlift maintenance will ensure that your stairlift lasts as long as possible. However, after years of everyday use, there are many reasons you may be considering upgrading or updating your current stairlift model. Reasons for a stairlift upgrade can include things like:
- You’re updating your décor and want your stairlift to match, rather than stand out
- Your mobility needs have changed and you require a stairlift with different features
- Your living situation has changed, so you want to upgrade to a more modern-looking model
- You originally purchased a second-hand stairlift and would like to upgrade to a brand-new model
In some cases, general wear and tear may leave your stairlift looking a little worn. While this won’t affect the functionality of your lift (as stairlifts are built to last), it may cause you to want to upgrade your current stairlift to a newer model.
