At Which Stairlift we have built up a long trusted relationship with many leading stairlift suppliers many of whom stock reconditioned models.

"An excellent design with a very clean and unobtrusive appearance. It functions well and has proved to be very helpful in our reduced circumstances.

The stairlift was installed quickly and cleanly. The service was kind and positive throughout."


J. Millington

While a New Stairlift offers many benefits and options a reconditioned stairlift has the main benefit when it comes to price and buying one of these can offer some savings. All reconditioned stairlifts from our recommended suppliers have undergone a vigorous refurbishment in order to meet strict health and safety standards and are supplied with at least 12 months warranty. If you are not sure which is the right option for you then please contact us and let our independent experts help you.

There are a number of things to consider when buying a reconditioned stairlift. You can find more information and details about the options that are available to you by completing the reconditioned stairlift form.

Positives of Buying New Stairlifts


The Negatives of Buying New Stairlifts


  • New stairlifts tend to be quite expensive
  • There may be still some ‘teething’ problems
  • Buyback value tends to be the same as an already refurbished stairlift

The Negatives of Buying Reconditioned Stairlifts


  • Some reconditioned stairlifts may have a limited warranty
  • It may be difficult to source a stairlift that is suitable for your stairs
  • Ongoing maintenance maybe an issue if the stair lift is no longer in production
  • If the stairlift is no longer in production, it could be difficult to find replacement parts
  • Unlike a new a stairlift, it would be difficult to tailor reconditioned stairlifts to the users needs
  • You may find that you will have to buy a second stairlift in the future should the first be beyond repair

The Positives of Buying a Reconditioned Stairlift


  • Cheaper than the new stairlift option
  • There should be no ‘teething’ problems as the stairlift has been used prior elsewhere
  • Installation maybe faster if you opt for a curved stairlift

Other Points to Remember


  • Quality of reconditioned stairlifts will vary tremendously
  • Unfortunately, some companies are not as thorough with their reconditioned stairlifts
  • You cannot mix and match different makes of stairlifts to different tracks
  • It is easy to cut a track down to suit your straight staircase
  • Some reconditioned straight stairlifts can be ‘re-handed’
  • It would be easier to adapt a curved stairlift to suit a straight staircase than to adapt a straight stairlift for a curved staircase
  • A straight stairlift with a platform installation could be a cheaper alternative to a curved stairlift installation – but not always the safest

"I found the whole process of the provision of a chair stairlift, from start to finish, to be very satisfactory, with efficient, friendly and prompt professional installation."
