Second Hand vs Reconditioned Stairlifts

It is very important to make the distinction between second hand stairlifts and reconditioned stairlifts. In simple terms a second hand stairlift is a pre-owned stairlift (just like a second hand car), whereas a reconditioned stair lift is one in which the stairlift and the stairlift track (rail) have been fully re-furbished to the point at which they are nearly as good as new.

Most reputable stairlift companies that sell reconditioned models will replace 90% of the stairlift with brand new materials. Typically you would receive a brand new seat (carriage), a brand new rail and a fully serviced/ reconditioned engine. The stairlift engines are often in excellent condition even after several years usage and once they are fully serviced they should give you many years of good service. A reconditioned stairlift should save you around 25-30% of the cost a new machine.


Here at Stair Lift suppliers we highly recommend that you ensure you purchase a reconditioned stairlift rather than non-refurbished second hand stairlifts. In addition, you should always check with your supplier to ensure the age of their reconditioned stair lifts is no more than 12-18 months old. This will ensure that your stairlift will be in the best possible working order and should come with a comprehensive 12 month warranty. Always be wary of purchasing second hand stairlifts from non-approved suppliers.
