We all like new things, but sometimes it’s not always the best idea to go for the shiny and latest style.
This can ring true for stairlifts, and we at Superglide are here to give you a few tips and pointers to the benefits of buying reconditioned.
From the financial, to longevity advantages, you may be surprised at the number of benefits opting for used instead of new may bring.
It’s pretty simple, but used products (unless we’re talking vintage cars or watches) will demand a lower fee than if you were to buy it straight out of the factory.
Although every little attention to detail may not be customisable, you’ll be able to scour the market and companies portfolios to find the stairlift that most suits your needs, and should you stumble across the perfect reconditioned model, you’ll save yourself a fortune compared to new.
Your budget may be able to stretch to an upgraded model too, whereas only the budget option may have been affordable from new.
Like anything else, the minute your new purchase becomes used, you’ll wipe a fair chunk of the value off it, so it makes sense to buy a reconditioned effort which has already beared the brunt of the depreciation.
People’s interpretations of reconditioned can be that the product is old, well used and likely to stop working sooner rather than later.
A sheer myth in the industry, and one that many rogue traders may have you believing in order to purchase the brand new model, making themselves a bigger bonus in the process.
Pre-owned stairlifts are factory refurbished, restoring them to their former glory and tested in the same rigorous ways as any other.
You’ll also find that many stairlift suppliers insist the tracks are completely replaced when installed, so you’ll have the very same level of quality.
Aftersales may be better than you think
Warranties don’t just come with new stairlifts, here at Superglide Stairlifts we provide an 18 month guarantee for your peace of mind.
It’s also our way of showing that we have faith in our products, and should anything go wrong, we’ll be happy to fix, repair or even replace within the extra warranty period.
The above isn’t always industry standard though, so do check before you commit, as you may be left with a sub-standard model with zero cover.
