Used Stair Glide

One of the hardest things for people who have lost the mobility they need to access every area in their home is losing the ability to walk up the stairs. Having the ability to use a stair glide can make life easier for them – but there are many people who do not have the money to purchase one for their home.

While they may not be able to purchase a stair glide brand new there is always the option of purchase a used glide. People can save hundreds if not thousands of dollars is they can find a used glide that is straight. Curved glides are virtually impossible to find used because they are custom fitted and do not have the ability to be relocated to another home.

There are two methods in which you can purchase a used glide; through a private sale via a newspaper ad or the internet and through a stair glide manufacturer. People have often found that they are able to purchase a used glide that is in excellent condition and is able to be used in their home with little to no problems. It is almost as if they were brand new.

The only negative to this form of purchase is the warranty that comes with the stair glide. In some cases when you purchase the stair glide through an advertisement there is no warranty at all. This means that if you needed a new part or needed to have it serviced you would have to pay the full cost.

In other cases when you purchase a used glide from manufacturers you might be given a warranty – but it will be used for less years than what would come with a brand new model. This makes people question whether or not buying used is really worth it.

Mot people would agree that the money they save on a used model is well worth it. Just make sure that you purchase a stair glide model that is still being used. This will make it easier for you to repair any part of it and to purchase anything for it should you need to. Also try to purchase from a manufacturer first before considering a private sale.
