Used stair lifts are a great option for many people who are no longer able to safely navigate the stairs in their own homes. Instead of having to leave the home they love, installing a used stair chair can keep your loved one in their own home and increase their independence. Below, you will find five advantages to buying used stair lifts rather than new ones.
You Can Save A Lot Of Money
Stair lifts can be a significant investment. A brand new stair chair, including installation, can cost anywhere from $2,500 to $6,000, with the average price being somewhere between $3,000 and $4,500. Therefore, looking for high-quality used stairlifts can easily save you more than a thousand dollars and potentially save you a few thousand dollars. Be careful that you purchase a used stair lift from a company like DME Elevators & Lifts that can provide highly skilled installation services, ongoing service, and provide any parts that may need to be replaced. Unfortunately, there are many "too good to be true" scams on the internet for this type of equipment.
Get a Higher End Used Stair Chair For Your Money
If you have your eye on a higher-end stair lift but only have the funds to afford a lower-end chair, you should consider shopping for used stair lifts. However, before you buy a used stair chair, you should make sure you are getting a reconditioned stair lift that has been thoroughly inspected to ensure it is perfectly safe and in great shape. In some cases, used parts are worn enough that they should be replaced before being resold. If you buy from DME Elevators & Lifts the used stair lifts we offer will have almost as much life left in them as a brand new one of the same or similar model. It's always nice to get more bang for your buck!
Used Stair Lifts Can Still Be Under Warranty
Some people are wary to purchase a used chair lift for stairs because they worry it won't be under warranty. The good news is that you can buy used stair lifts that are still under warranty if you come to us. This gives you peace of mind should a problem develop and you need to have your stair chair (or track) fixed. This is another good reason to buy your used stair chair from a reputable dealer like DME Elevators & Lifts. Call us to discuss the options we have available and we can tell you about the warranties we offer on used chairs as well.
An Excuse To Not Put It Off Any Longer
As our loved ones age, it is sometimes difficult for them to admit to themselves and to others that they need a little help. As a result, they sometimes try to push themselves to do physical tasks that are no longer safe for them to do. Finding a good price on used stair lifts can provide the perfect "excuse" for getting your loved one to agree to have one installed before it's too late and they have an unfortunate accident.
Used Stair Lifts Can Be Like New
A good stairlift company will specify the manufacturer, the model, and the year the used stair lift was manufactured. At DME Elevators & Lifts, most of our stair lifts are less than three years used, often less than two years, and in no case will we offer stairlifts older than seven years. All of our used stair lifts come with warranties for labor and parts with newer lifts having multi-year warranties for the motor and gearbox. If a salesperson from any company cannot provide you with detailed information be cautious.
