Our Most Frequently Asked Questions
At We Buy Any Stairlift our passion is to recycle and repurpose as many used stairlifts as possible. We love to see used stairlifts getting a new lease of life, helping the environment and avoiding wastage. However there are occasions when it is not possible to buyback your stairlift, listed below.
We are currently not able to buyback:
- Stairlifts over 10 years old
- Stairlift makes/models which are no longer being manufactured
- Stairlift makes/models which we are overstocked with
- Stairlifts that are not working/require significant repairs
- Stairlifts with significant cosmetic damage i.e. stains, cracks, broken pieces, excessive smoke damage
- Some stairlifts that have been removed, if they have not been removed in the correct way (photograph required to quote)
If we are unable to purchase your stairlift, we may be able to offer a free professional removal service, if the stairlift model can be recycled for spare parts. If we are not able to recycle the stairlift at all, we can provide a quote for the removal and disposal of the stairlift at a charge. There is no obligation to proceed after a quote has been received. We Buy Any Stairlift reserve the right to refuse to purchase your stairlift.
As our levels of stock are constantly changing it is difficult to provide an extensive up to date list of makes and models and requirements for a buyback. However, models that we are interested in are:
- Acorn 130 (straight)
- Acorn 180 (curved)
- Stannah 600 (straight)
- Stannah 260 (curved)
- Thyssenkrupp Flow 2 (curved)
- Thyssenkrupp Flow 2a (curved)
- Handicare 950/950+ (straight)
- Handicare 2000 (curved)
This list is subject to stock level and can change. We cannot guarantee we are able to make an offer on the above models, as it is dependent on stock level, age, condition, and any further modifications or upgrades the lift may have had.
Unfortunately we do not buyback the following stairlift makes:
We do not buyback these makes of stairlifts for a variety of reasons. It may be that the company is no longer trading or manufacturing, the products are manufactured outside of the UK, or because there is little to no demand for reconditioning of these types to be recycled.
Sometimes the stairlift will not clearly state the make and model or serial number on the equipment, and if paperwork cannot be located it can be difficult to tell what type you have. This can be the case if you are arranging on behalf of someone else, or if you have moved into a property with an existing stairlift.
We offer a free service to identify the make and model, and approximate age of stairlift online. To do this we require a photograph (or several) of the stairlift, and as much information as you can give us. We will then get back to you to let you know if we can offer a buyback for the stairlift, and if not what the cost of removal would be.
