If someone has passed away, moved house or getting a property ready for resale, when a stairlift is no longer needed, we can remove it and take it away for you. We make sure that everything left behind is made tidy and safe. We understand that often when a lift is removed, perhaps because of a bereavement, your call needs to be treated in a sensitive manner and we’ll do all we can to accommodate your needs in an empathetic way.
Depending on the model and age of the unwanted stairlift and our current stock holding, we may:
· charge to remove the lift, or
· remove it for free and take it away or
· offer to buy your stairlift and pay you for it. We may also buy back a lift even if we haven’t installed it originally depending on the model, age and quality of the installation.
All stairlifts are disposed of correctly in accordance with applicable environmental regulations, so if we do need to charge you, disposal will be incorporated along with the labour costs..
Selling a Stairlift and Buybacks
We do refurbish nearly new used models to resell as reconditioned stairlifts and rental stairlifts. When we resell these lifts they go through a very rigorous process of reconditioning, testing and safety-checking which is quite labour intensive. The price that we may offer for your lift will be reflected in the on-cost resale value which is likely to be a lot lower than you originally paid for it when it was brand new.
We can usually give you an indication of what your stairlift is worth over the phone, this will not only depend on the model, but also it’s condition and how well it was originally installed. If you’re interested in selling one, just give us a call to find out more.
Stairlift Removal and Refit:
Having a new stair carpet or decorating your hallway? Need to take the stairlift off the staircase? We can remove it and reinstall it quickly (sometimes doing both the removal and refitting on the same day).
Please be aware that we have come across instances where family members or carpet fitters have carried out the removal and put the lift back in in a dangerous and unsafe condition – your safety is our priority so please don’t compromise and make sure you have a qualified professional doing this job for you.
Moving House and Refitting your Lift there
We can often do a stairlift removal and refit it in another property. This will depend on the particular model of lift and the measurements of the old and new staircase. We may need a new rail or other parts to make it safely fit your new home. Sometimes the new stairs aren’t suitable due to curves and corners in the staircase, or the width and available space. If so, we can sometimes Part-Exchange your lift depending on it’s age and condition and give you a discount on a new one.
