A stairlift hauled up and down stairs with a cable or rope is noisy and the ride will be rough and jarring. What’s more, the movement will leave black oily sludge marks on your stairs.
We recommend purchasing a stairlift from an authorized dealer who is locally based. While the perception of buying one online may appear to be cheaper up-front, it could end up costing you much more in the long run if no local service agents are available to assist with malfunctions or normal preventative maintenance.
Typically, stairlifts come with a basic warranty. Extended warranties may be available, but they usually only cover motors and gearboxes, since these parts last longer. Service warranties are also usually available through the local stairlift company.
Stairlift warranties vary, but we have all of that information for each stairlift manufacturer we sell and we’re happy to review those details with you.
