New Stairlifts Vs Reconditioned Stairlifts

Reconditioned stairlifts may be an option worth considering. They are are usually straight stairlifts that have been removed from one location and can be installed in another. There are savings to be had and can be considerably cheaper than buying new. Curved or made-to-measure stairlifts are not normally available second-hand because of the bespoke work required. Many suppliers will still provide a warranty for peace of mind.
