The decision to install a stair lift is often taken to allow for complete independent access to the stairs and when shopping online, you will likely find many options. You might consider purchasing a used stair lift in order to save money. If you do decide to purchase a used stair lift, then it is important to follow some simple guidelines. Find a Reputable Dealer of Used Stair Lifts: There are many online auction and classified sites that can put you in contact with a private person trying to sell their used stair lift. You never really know what you are getting when you purchase one this way though. You could be inheriting a stair lift that is broken, been misused, or is in otherwise poor or unsafe condition. Instead if you purchase from a reputable dealer, you can still save money on your used lift, but you will get a product that has been completely refurbished to factory standards and in the same condition it was when it left the factory. You will also get a warranty on your lift. These are things that a private individual won’t ever be able to guarantee you.

You should also look at as many makes of stair lifts and talk to at least 3 different dealerships. Talking to a dealer is important; don’t buy from a dealer on the internet if they don’t also have a phone number - if you have any problems later, chances are you won’t get any answers back by email.

How does it work? The adjustable stair brackets are positioned on two 2x6’s -using a reusable spacing tool. The spacer is set using a chart which will give the exact setting for the rise and tread required for your project. Two screws are set in each bracket, attaching to the two 2x6’s. This forms a fully adjustable stringer which is then adjusted exactly to your stair requirements. Fixing screws are then inserted to lock the brackets in position. Two to three cuts total, top and bottom completes the stringer. Compared this to the dozens of cuts required for traditional construction. With this system, stairs can be built up to nine feet wide, using only the two outside stringers....no interior stringers required.
