Buying Used Acorn Stairlifts

Acorn stair lifts are one of the most popular on the market. These are well known for the modern lifts that they design and the technology used to make them. Every model that they make infuses the most innovative technology and safety is their number one concern. Unfortunately many of the things that they offer are still too expensive for some of us to even consider.

If you are having problems paying for one and your health insurance or Medicaid does not cover it than you should consider purchasing something that is used. It is important to know how to find the right one for your home and who not to buy from. Please remember that curved lifts cannot be purchased used because they are custom made for a home.

Refurbished Units

The best way to purchase a used stair lift is to get it directly from the source. Acorn and other stair lift manufacturers will buy back old models or repair ones that were sent back broken. They will refurbish them and than resell them to customers looking to save. The great thing about being these is that they are going to be some of the safest of all the used units.

Online Auctions

You might be able to go to online auction sites like eBay or Craigslist. This will help you to get a great deal. The one downside is that you don’t know how trustworthy the seller is. In cases like this make sure that you look at the lift in person and test it. This should also be done if you are purchasing from someone that is local. When in doubt bring along a mechanic to look at the inside of it all and to see what condition it is in.
