Thinking of buying a brand-new stairlift? Think again. Whilst it may seem like the only option, stairlifts, both in straight and curved specifications, can actually be purchased second-hand without compromising on quality or safety. In this helpful guide, we provide a breakdown of the key reasons why choosing a reconditioned stairlift might be the ideal solution for your home.
A proven method of accessing high-quality branded stairlifts at a manageable cost, without sacrificing the quality of the product itself, choosing a reconditioned stairlift has many significant advantages. Let’s take a closer look at the key benefits of reconditioned stairlifts.
As with the majority of second-hand or refurbished products, purchasing a reconditioned stairlift will be far cheaper to purchase outright compared with a brand new one. A reconditioned stairlift is estimated to be around half the price of a new one, yet offering similar levels of quality and comfort. Purchasing a reconditioned stairlift for your home to improve your mobility is far cheaper than a new purchase, or of course, the costs of relocating to a new property, such as a bungalow.
A used stairlift is an ideal compromise for those looking to cut initial costs whilst also ensuring the product is of a proven quality; reconditioned stairlifts cost less to purchase outright as they won’t require virgin materials or need to be built from scratch, instead, they can be easily refurbished which works out far more cost-effective.
It can be easy to convince yourself that a reconditioned stairlift will result in a downturn in performance, efficiency and safety standards, but this is far from the case. In fact, reconditioned stairlifts are factory refurbished to ensure they are restored to their highest standard without compromise and often come with the exact same parts and labour warranty offered with brand new stairlifts. A refurbished and completely reconditioned stairlift will produce excellent results at a much lower cost, practically guaranteeing a low-cost product that rivals the most expensive.
Recycling, reusing or repurposing existing products to perform a new function is a significant market in today’s society, with an increased emphasis on the need to be conscious of our material and energy use, and how this may impact our collective environment. Purchasing a reconditioned stairlift, as an example, eliminates the need for fresh materials to be sourced and prevents unnecessary waste reaching landfill. Not only this, but fossil fuel burning will no longer be an issue, with little to no energy consumed in the production of reconditioned stairlifts making it an ideal solution for those looking to reduce their own impact on the environment.
Choosing a reconditioned stairlift will provide access to the top brands at an affordable price. Instead of purchasing a new stairlift from an unknown or potentially risky brand to save money, you could instead find a reconditioned stairlift from a proven brand at a similar price.
