Identifying and Avoiding ScamsInternet-based fraud is endemic, having spread to stair lifts and targeting potentially vulnerable people. The AEMA is an independent non-profit organization formed in 1990 to meet the needs of the accessibility equipment manufacturers, distributors and end users. The AEMA has monitored sales practices in the industry to identify scams and unsafe practices which act to confound end users and, worse yet, place end users at risk without their knowledge. The AEMA has issued warnings regarding internet-based scams which are available as a link here. Still yet there are select few providers who like DME are reputable and deliver quality products and services. Below are a few tips drawn from the experience of AEMA, DME and a number of our trusted affiliate partners. These may help you to avoid untrustworthy businesses.
Low-ball price on new Stair LiftsA good straight stair lift costs several thousand dollars. However, some bargains offered today are truly too good to be true. Inevitably, these businesses cut corners which have the potential to cause real harm. First, many of these are for ‘do-it-yourself’ installation, representing the process as ‘easy.’ The fact is that installing a track involves technical expertise of the chair’s internal systems as well as precise measurement, wiring and stair construction. Getting installation wrong exposes you to unacceptable risk of harm. Secondly, internet companies lacking installers will use a local handyman who’s neither trained nor successfully installed stair lifts previously. The risks here are the same as self installation. Once more, the local handyman is not qualified to maintain or service, nor will have access to parts to complete repairs.
Unbelievable deals on used Stair LiftsCertain stair lifts can be viable as used stair lifts. These include lifts from high-grade manufacturers and models which are not excessively aged. When buying a used lift you need to have the confidence it will last and provide a suitable level of safety. Only a professional dealer can discern which lifts are appropriate as used stair lifts and have the capacity to recondition and service consistently. Operators who offer only used stair lifts, or mostly used lifts, as if these are bargain automobiles are best to be avoided.
Fly-by-night operatorsThe internet allows individuals to present themselves as large organizations, particularly when located out of state or outside your community. Many of these operators, in fact, do not have full service facilities, may lack proper training and oftentimes do not carry requisite insurance to be installing and servicing stair lifts in the home. It’s important to establish the validity and scope of the business.
