Stannah Contract & Plan Details

Contract and Plan Details - 6 / 10

Stannah works in two different ways- in its UK headquarters, the company functions as a direct dealer, selling and servicing its products itself. In the rest of the world, Stannah provides stairlifts through its extensive dealer network. Warranty and contract information therefore, varies according to geographical location, but customers are sure to find new, certified refurbished, and rental options available. Though Stannah itself doesn't have a financing arrangement with a financial institution, the company's webpage does list a number of helpful resources for users on a budget. Since straight lifts range between $2,500-$5,000, (curved ones are approximately $8,500+), financing is probably a good idea. Stannah recommends that users who expect to need lifts for less than 18 months will probably find that a stairlift rental contract is a more cost-efficient solution.

Certified Refurbished

Warranty Fine Print

Every new stairlift comes with a 2 year comprehensive warranty and the first 2 services are free. We regret this offer is not available on products purchased through third party dealers or companies, or products purchased with the aid of a grant and is only applicable to residents of England, Scotland and Wales. Each stairlift purchased as reconditioned comes with a 12 month warranty and one free service. Rented stairlifts come with servicing and call-outs for the duration of the rental agreement.

Really, what is the harm or foul in providing the manufacturer warranty and/or any Stannah (price involved) additional options? It would benefit the comparison process without the (often) painful process of obtaining the information via a "phone call". Shame on you Stannah!
