Should cancellation be made in the 2 week period prior to the proposed installation date the full order value, less £400 installation charges, will be made.

Buy Back Values

It should be noted curved track stairlifts are individually made to measure, they therefore will have a very minimal buy back value. Please bear in mind prior to purchase. You will not be able to sell this equipment privately, and will struggle to sell to the trade. We will however always remove the equipment without cost to you.
