Reconditioned Stair Lifts

Many families struggle with the decision of what to do when they or a loved one become disabled and needs extra care. Most families prefer to have them stay at home for as long as possible adding to the comfort of their loved one. If the disabled person resides in a two floor home, this can add an extra struggle to their plans. The best decision to help families overcome this obstacle is to have a stair lift installed in their home. This will enable them to easily use both floors of the home.

This can be a costly plan and leave many families thinking that they just cannot afford this option but there is a way to reduce the costs and make installing a chairlift more affordable. This can be done by purchasing one of the reconditioned stair lifts, which sell for only a fraction of the cost of new stair lifts. As long as you make sure you buy a working and compatible stair lift, you can receive the same benefits as a new one.

What to Know Before You Buy a Reconditioned Stair Lift

Purchasing a reconditioned stair lift can save you money but you have to know what you are looking for before you buy. Your best bet is to purchase a stair lift from a manufacturer who deals with reconditioned stair lifts. They will only sell products that have been safety checked and that meet their standards. They may even offer a limited guarantee which will be a great help if something goes wrong with the reconditioned stair lift. You can purchase a stair lift from a private seller but you will want to be sure that it works properly. You can have it assessed by a professional who works with stair lifts.

A straight stair lift can be easily installed at a new location and can be placed on either side of the stairway with very little reconstruction work done. However, curved stairways are not easily relocated to a new stairway and you should be very wary about anyone telling you that this kind of installation can be done. If you have a curved stairway, you may be able to use the chair and the motor from a reconditioned stair lift which will also save you money. You would just need to install the tracks. You also need to be sure that you accurately measure the size of you stairway and purchase a reconditioned stair lift that matches you needs. It cannot be too short or it will not fit or work properly.

After you have purchased and installed you reconditioned stair lift it is important that you set up a maintenance plan with a professional servicing company who specialises in stair lifts. Stair lifts whether they are bought new or reconditioned need to be regularly serviced to ensure that they are in proper working order. You should find a company for your service contract that offers 24/7 coverage so that you know that you will be able to help you no matter what time of day it is. Your stair lift should be inspected about every six months and can be completely serviced once a year.
