So you’ve decided on reconditioned, or perhaps you’re still undecided, but whatever you decide you need to make sure you get the right machine for you and your property.
They come in all shapes and sizes, specs and price levels, so it may seem like a daunting experience trying to pick your favourite, but it isn’t difficult!
Here are some of the ways you can choose the right reconditioned stairlift.
Why choose reconditioned in the first place?
There are plenty of benefits to buying reconditioned, including;
It’s like anything you buy, if it isn’t brand new off the factory floor then you can expect a hefty saving. Reconditioned stairlifts are exactly that, with a hefty saving off the RRP on all of the models we have in stock.
2. They can be like new
People’s imagination of reconditioned is old and worn out, but it is far from the case. From TVs to laptops, sometimes they’ve merely been taken out of the box, deemed not suitable and returned.
The keyword is ‘reconditioned’ with the suppliers restoring them to their original glory, with many of the components having to be replaced with brand new items.
Should anything go wrong, you’ll be covered by a guarantee, usually of around 18 months. There are extra options after this too, like insurance that can remove all the need to worry and ensure peace of mind.
Would a company provide such a lengthy warranty if they didn’t have faith in the products they were selling? It would just be a hassle having to constantly replace the product if they did.
A potential curveball, straight or not?
Before you even start hunting, you need to check whether your staircase is straight, curved or have a transfer platform (where stairs are split by a landing).
These will decide what model you need and may add to the cost depending on the complexity of the job at hand.
Narrow stairs can be a problem, as can outdoor builds, as certain materials may not be suitable for outdoor use.
What reason do you need the stairlift for?
The reason you need your stairlift can determine what make and model you may need.
Whether it’s trouble with your joints, sitting upright, rising after sitting or even arthritis, then you may need a specially-built machine or a reconditioned model with various extras.
