Rent or Buy a Stairlift

Here at Alfix, we realise that this is a highly personal choice that needs to be considered carefully. Here we share our very short guide to making the right decision, with some of the most important factors to consider.

Temporary or permanent installation

In some scenarios, you might just need a stairlift for a couple of months or weeks at a time. Nevertheless, in others, you might require a stairlift for the foreseeable future, and in this case, a permanent installation may be the answer.

Stairlift rental may also be beneficial to you if you have an elderly family member or a loved one with limited mobility coming to stay for a while. While you might not want or need a stairlift installed in your property for years to come, making sure you’ve considered the accessibility of your home temporarily is sure to be handy and appreciated by anyone coming to stay.

Nevertheless, if you do require a stairlift for the foreseeable future, then it’s recommended to buy rather than rent. When you buy a stairlift, it will be yours until you decide to replace or upgrade it, in which case you won’t have to worry about staying in touch with your rental company or dealing with monthly payments. Due to this, buying a stairlift is often the best option for people who use wheelchairs, walking aids, or for the elderly.
