Should you buy a used stair lift in lieu of buying a new one? That’s a good question. And it’s one that’ll depend upon your budget and what’s available to fit your particular situation.
For starters, you want to take into consideration whether you’ll always need that stair lift or if you’ll temporarily need one and if so, for how long. Now ideally, if you’re going to always need a stair lift, or will need one for many years, it’s probably best to purchase a brand new stair lift. The investment should be more than worth it.
It’s also important to keep in mind, that if there are issues such as large height and weight to take into consideration, a new stair lift may be best.
Taking a look at used stair lifts, there are many ways to get one. You can simply do a search on http://www.google.com for “used stair lifts”. You can go to http://www.Ebay.com to search for them there too. Also, local newspaper classified ads and of course, actual companies that supply stair lifts are ideal to talk to.
If you’ve chosen to go the used stair lift route, you want to talk with a person that’s knowledgable on the topic about what exactly you need. If you can find a dealer offering used stair lifts and get their advice in matching you with a stair lift for your appropriate situation, that might be ideal. In some cases, local dealers may not have used stair lifts available. In those situations, it would be a good idea to talk with dealers about what make and model they think you should get, and then go the route of picking a stair lift from your Google, Ebay or classified searches.
The most important thing of course to keep in mind is the condition and consequently the level of safety inherent in the used stair lift.
