Used, Reconditioned... What's the Difference?
To put it simply, while a reconditioned stairlift isn't "new" by ordinary standards, that doesn't mean it's used either. A used product directly implies a former owner but this isn't always the case with a reconditioned stairlift. It may be that the stairlift simply never got sold and suffered from basic neglect laying around waiting in a warehouse somewhere. Reconditioning is simply the process of taking an older product that has fallen to a less-than-perfect state and restoring it to like new. Often reconditioned merchandise sells for huge discounts just to clear out excess stock that cannot be sold as new. Therefore, when you buy a reconditioned stairlift it may well be that it is practically new for all intents and purposes.
Reconditioned Stairlift Suppliers
There are many companies throughout the UK that can provide reconditioned stairlifts cheaply. It is often possible to save anywhere up to £2,000 on the cost of a new chair lift by purchasing reconditioned instead so it pays to shop around and find the best supplier. Stairlift Suppliers UK is one example of a website that can aid in the search for a reconditioned stairlift by recommending various approved reconditioned chair lift dealers. Companies such as Freedom Stairlifts offer a range of cheap options for stairlifts both new and reconditioned, sometimes knocking up to 50% off the regular selling price. This makes them a great place to start for those who need a stair lift and simply don't have the world's biggest budget.
What are the Drawbacks to Buying Reconditioned?
Of course, buying a reconditioned stair lift isn't completely risk free. There are several things that may or may not be important to you but that should at least be considered before you buy reconditioned. For example, just the fact that you are buying a product that may not be sold new any more can sometimes cause problems due to parts not being readily available for repair should something go wrong with your reconditioned stairlift. Add to this the fact that an older stairlift is more likely to come with a shorter warranty and is also more likely to need repair in the first place than a new one and this may be a compelling enough reason for you to buy new. Another drawback to buying a reconditioned stairlift is that they generally come without the same range of options available when buying new. You may end up having to settle if you can't find the perfect reconditioned stairlift where you would have other options if you purchased new.
