When can hiring a stairlift save you money?

Under certain circumstances hiring a stairlift can be a more cost-effective option than buying one outright.

There are certain circumstances that warrant hiring a stairlift opposed to buying one. All these different circumstances have one major factor in common, time. If a stairlift is only going to be required for a short period of time, stairlift hire is a fantastic option.

When you choose to hire a stairlift you will have all the benefits of a new or reconditioned stairlift, while paying for it one month at a time. You generally don’t have to worry about any additional servicing costs or removal costs as these are built into the rental price.

What is the right situation for stairlift hire?

As we said, we’d only recommend hiring when a stairlift is needed for a short period of time. Typical situations we come across are:

  • When recovering from treatment or a short-term illness
  • You have a visitor staying for a short period of time who requires stair assistance
  • A temporary solution before moving to more suitable accommodation
  • You just want to budget with a set monthly charge
