Disadvantages of Renting

  1. After a number of months, if you continue to need your stairlift, it’s will prove to be more expensive than purchasing it.
  2. Cork Stairlifts have a range of top quality stairlifts that will serve you faithfully for 10 years or more, so if you need a long-term mobility solution, renting is not the best option.
  3. You don’t own your stairlift when you rent it. You only lease it temporarily.
  4. Purchasing a good quality reconditioned stairlift is a cheaper and better option than renting in most instances.
  5. People’s mobility needs change. Over time our mobility deteriorates so purchasing is a safer long-term solution to address our changing mobility needs.
  6. Stairlifts that are used for renting are often older models. When you purchase a new stairlift you will be getting the latest most up to date model.  For more information on renting stairlifts phone our office (021) 432 0052 or visit our website on
