Prices for Stairlifts

The prices for stairlifts can not be set in stone because of several factors.  These factors include the length of the stairway, the width of the stairway, how many steps there are in your stairway, whether or not the stairway is curved or angled, how much weight the stairlift will carry each day, etc.

All of these help determine price because it will tell the manufacturer whether or not you need the most basic stairlift or whether you need a more customized unit.  Contact the various stairlift companies in your area and ask for a free price quote.  Once measurements are taken and the type of stairlift you need is determined, you should then receive a quote to see if owning a stairlift is feasible for you.

Why Should a Person Consider Buying a Reconditioned Stairlift?

Reconditioned stairlifts are frequently a much better buy, in straight dollars, than are new stairlifts.  You can purchase a straight reconditioned stairlift for up to $400.00 to 600.00 less than new and a curved or angled reconditioned stairlift for up to $2,000.00 to 3,000.00 less than new price.

The time it takes to install a reconditioned lift is less than with new lifts.  Amazingly, this is also the case with curved lifts.

Used and reconditioned stairlifts don’t need quite as long to “settle” into the new house and therefore should run rather smoothly from the time it is installed.

Are There any Drawbacks to Purchasing a Reconditioned Stairlift?

Because these units are older, it may get more difficult to find replacement parts for the reconditioned lift.  Also, because they are reconditioned or used, they come with what they come with.  You don’t get the option of choosing extras for the lift.  You will definitely need to purchase a yearly maintenance contract because they will begin a little sooner to need more frequent maintenance.  While used lifts bought through established stairlift suppliers will be thoroughly checked out, your warranty may cover less time than a warranty on a new lift.
