Product Buyers Guide: Renting vs. Buying a Stairlift

Oct 5, 2022 | Buyers Guide

Stairlifts, or chair lifts, don’t have to be a permanent fixture in the home. There are other options if purchasing a lift for your stairs for long term use isn’t right for your unique case. Renting a stair lift may be the way to go, but don’t forget – there are other factors to consider such as whether you need a curved or straight rail, a folding rail, or if there are more personal contributors including the reason for the lift, or how long you may need it.

Renting A Stairlift

If you’re aware of how long you will need the lift and know it is a temporary tool to help you heal from an injury or surgery, a rental may be a great solution to help you travel up and down your stairs. We suggest using our Dealer Locator to find a dealer near you who offers a rental program, as rental programs, prices, and selections vary.

Buying A Stairlift

Whether you choose to purchase a brand new stairlift or a used model, this solution would be best for those who plan to age in place or have a more permanent diagnosis which would make climbing the stairs dangerous or impossible. It’s important to understand which type of stair lift you may need to best fit your lifestyle and your home, so we recommend using our Dealer Locator to find a local dealer who can best assist you in your stairlift search.
