Reconditioned Stairlifts – a few myths explained….


Reconditioned Stairlifts

Firstly, most stairlift companies offer a working guarantee against reconditioned stairlifts, usually 12 months. Any concerns you might have can be offset the reconditioned stairlift guarantee.

Of course, there is a reason the stairlift is reconditioned, it may be second hand or have a minor spurious fault from the manufacturing plant. The flaw on the reconditioned stairlift you may not even notice and reflects the discount you should receive.

With many reconditioned stairlifts, the chair and the motor are second hand. However, the stairlift rail, in many circumstances, needs to be brand new and customised for a specific stair.

Most credible stairlift companies provide a 42 point check on reconditioned stairlifts, so make sure you ask that question. This checklist should provide you with a good level of assurance and should also comply with Irish Health and Safety standards.

And yes, reconditioned stairlifts are for the reason above somewhat cheaper than a fully approved stairlift. Straight reconditioned stairlifts can be purchased from 900 euro and curved reconditioned stairlifts can be purchased from 3000 euro. There are a number of factors to consider, such as labour, customisation, extra features, etc. The figures above should provide you with a rough idea of price.
