Top Tips for Buying Stairlifts at the Best Price
Do Your Research
It’s worthwhile looking into a range of stairlift suppliers and companies. Take a look at the range of stairlifts and services on offer and think about how they can meet your needs. Some companies offer better value for money than others. Take a look at customer testimonials and feedback on sites like Checkatrade or Feefo to help you decide if they’re worth buying from.
Different Types of Stairlift
Different types of stairlift come in different price ranges. Basic straight stairlifts will be less expensive than bespoke curved stairlifts with a hinged rail. Make sure you have a realistic budget in mind for the type of stairlift you’re likely to need. A reconditioned straight stairlift, like the reconditioned Stannah Saxon stairlift, or reconditioned curved stairlifts like the HALTON-CURVE-TW, will usually be cheaper than a brand new stairlift. It’s worth exploring used stairlift options if you’re looking to get the lowest possible price and don’t mind owning a used model.
Get a few quotes and compare prices on similar makes and models of stairlifts. Some stairlift companies may charge extra for things like delivery, installation, or warranty packages, so make sure you check the break down of your quote to see what it covers exactly. Or ask to compare different budget options, if you’ve arranged a home assessment with a qualified stairlift surveyor.
