If your stairlift is no longer needed, it can be hard to know what to do with unwanted stairlifts. You might need to arrange stairlift removal if you’ve experienced a bereavement, are moving home, or you simply want to replace an old or faulty stairlift. Arrange for the safe removal of your stairlift with a professional stairlift removal service.
What to Do with Unwanted Stairlifts
When the time comes to remove your stairlift, there are a couple of options available to you. From re-selling to recycling, choose the best solution for your situation. Here we’ll point you in the right direction. Find out where to begin with making arrangements to have your used stairlift taken away:
Who will buy used stairlifts?
If your stairlift is nearly new and in good condition, you may qualify for a ‘buy-back’ service. Most UK stairlift suppliers or independent stairlift companies will offer a buy-back option. Contact your original supplier or a local stairlift company to see if this is something they offer. This option usually has the advantage of free professional removal, as well as getting some money back on the price you paid for your stairlift. Even if you’ve only had it a few months, the unit will have been subject to some wear and tear and fitted to suit the specifications of your home. It’s worth noting, you may find that the value of your stairlift has decreased significantly.
Kinder to the environment, choosing a buy-back option also means that your stairlift won’t go to waste. Newer models can often be re-conditioned for re-sale with a stairlift company.
Companies that recycle stairlifts
If your stairlift is old, in poor condition, or faulty and beyond repair, check with your local stairlift company to see if they can arrange for the correct disposal of the unit. This should include recycling components and disposing of non-recyclable parts, including the stairlift battery.
If you choose this process of removal, you’re likely to encounter a charge for the service. This charge will cover the cost of the removal engineer and waste management fees. Giving you extra peace of mind, recycling your stairlift will mean your stairlift isn’t discarded illegally. Plus, you won’t have the hassle of dismantling and transporting the stairlift yourself.
