Do I Need a New Stairlift?

Deciding whether to purchase a new stairlift involves considering your specific needs and circumstances. Buying a new stairlift offers numerous benefits, including the latest technology, full manufacturer warranties, and the assurance that the stairlift meets the current safety standards. New stairlifts can be customised to fit the exact specifications of your staircase and personal mobility requirements, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal comfort.

However, it’s essential to recognise that a new stairlift is one of many options. Many customers find great value in purchasing used or reconditioned stairlifts, which can be a cost-effective alternative. Buying from an approved and reputable dealer is crucial when opting for a used stairlift. Approved dealers have access to genuine spare parts and possess the expertise to refurbish stairlifts to meet high safety and operational standards. This ensures that the stairlift is reliable and performs well over time.

In conclusion, while new stairlifts benefit from the latest features and full customisation, a used stairlift from a reputable dealer can also be a safe and effective solution. Before deciding, consider your budget, the intended duration of use, and specific features you might need. Always ensure that any used stairlift purchase is made through a dealer that offers certified reconditioning and genuine parts to maintain high standards of safety and functionality.

What Type of Stairlift is Right For Me?

Choosing the right stairlift for your home can be complex, given the variety of options available. The best stairlift for you depends on several factors, each tailored to your specific needs and home layout. The architecture of your staircase is the primary determinant of the type of stairlift you will need. 

Type of Staircase
Type of Staircase

The architecture of your staircase is the primary determinant of the type of stairlift you will need. For straight staircases without any turns or landings, a straight stairlift is typically suitable. It tends to be more straightforward to install and cost-effective. If your staircase has bends, curves, or multiple levels, a curved stairlift will be necessary to navigate these complexities.

Customisation
Customisation

Depending on your personal preferences and the aesthetics of your home, you may want to customise your stairlift. Some stairlifts offer a range of colours, styles, and finishes that can be chosen to complement your home decor.

Personal Mobility Requirements
Personal Mobility Requirements

Your physical needs are also crucial. Features such as adjustable seats, swivel functions, or ergonomic controls can significantly enhance comfort and usability, especially if you have specific mobility challenges.

Stairlift Rentals vs. Buying

If you only need a stairlift for a short period or find the upfront cost daunting, renting might be right for you. It offers flexibility without the long term investment. Stairlift rental programs are a great short-term solution for making your home accessible. Whether you’re recovering from an injury or need temporary support, Stannah’s rental program offers various options to meet your needs. Renting allows you to “try before you buy” and provides the flexibility to rent a stairlift for as long as necessary.
