Reconditioned stairlifts

Investing in a new stairlift can be a significant expense, that’s why some people choose a reconditioned stairlift.
Reconditioned stairlifts have gone through a rigorous refurbishment and inspection process, ensuring that each previously owned stairlift meets safety and performance standards before being resold. This way, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re getting a reliable and safe option at a more affordable price.

What is a reconditioned stairlift?

A reconditioned stairlift is a mobility device that has been previously owned and used but has undergone a refurbishment and reconditioning process to bring it back to a functional and safe condition.

To prepare a used stairlift for resale as a reconditioned unit, it undergoes a comprehensive refurbishment process. This process typically includes cleaning, repairing, and replacing worn or damaged components to ensure the stairlift is safe and functional. A reconditioned stairlift can also be a cost-effective solution if you anticipate needing it for a relatively short period, such as during post-surgery recovery.

Reconditioned stairlifts are often readily available because they are sourced from existing units. This can be especially advantageous if you need a stairlift promptly and don’t want to wait for a new one to be manufactured.


Reconditioned stairlifts are subjected to rigorous testing and inspection procedures to verify that all components and systems are in proper working order. This is done to ensure the safety and reliability of the unit.

Cost savings

One of the primary advantages of purchasing a reconditioned stairlift is the cost savings compared to buying a new one. Refurbished units are typically more affordable, making them a more budget-friendly option.

Buying a reconditioned stairlift

We understand that finding a stairlift that is affordable while meeting safety and quality standards can be challenging. That’s why we recommend reaching out to an Access partner to install a reconditioned lift. This option provides peace of mind, as the lift undergoes thorough testing before it’s installed in your home.

We strongly advise against purchasing a used stairlift from a private seller. It’s difficult to be certain that the installation will be done correctly and safely. If you experience any issues with your stairlift after installation, it’s important to know who to contact for repairs. Additionally, if you require a curved stairlift, keep in mind that the rail may not be appropriate for your specific staircase.

New vs used

When buying a stairlift, you have a few options to consider. New models offer benefits like a warranty, custom fit, the latest safety features and a longer lifespan. On the other hand, used models are more affordable and sustainable. But, they may come with some risks, such as a lack of warranty, the need for modifications or outdated technology. It’s important to weigh the pros and cons and choose what’s best for you and your unique situation.
