New vs Reconditioned Stairlift Installations

Here at Alfix, we install both new and reconditioned staircases for our clients in Leamington Spa. If you’ve been wondering whether to install a new or reconditioned staircase, we’ve created a comparative guide to help.

Reconditioned Stairlift Benefits


The clear benefit of choosing a reconditioned stairlift, as opposed to a new one, is the financial savings you can expect to see. Reconditioned stairlifts are a high-quality stairlift solution at a much lower cost.


As well as being more cost-effective, reconditioned stairlifts are also a sustainable option for those concerned with the environment. By reusing existing stairlifts, reconditioners have less of an impact on the environment than manufacturers do during the production process.

Great Short-Term Solution

If you only require a stairlift for a short term, choosing a reconditioned stairlift may be the best option due to the savings you will make.

New Stairlift Installation Benefits

Longer Lifespan

A brand new stairlift is likely to have a longer lifespan than a reconditioned stairlift. If you plan to keep the same stairlift for many years to come, it may be wiser to choose a new model that will stand up to the test of time.

Greater Reliability

As well as lasting longer, new stairlift installations are likely to be more reliable than a reconditioned one. Although these options are more expensive, they should work more efficiently and effectively for longer if the correct maintenance schedule is followed.


If you live in a home with a more unusual staircase, you will likely require a custom-built stairlift. It’s unlikely that you will find a reconditioned stairlift that fits your staircase precisely. In these situations, having a customised staircase built from scratch is often the better option.
