FREE TO A GOOD HOME - STANNAH STAIRLIFT

Can be seen working. My mother passed away so it needs to be removed from the house. It is not new, but has had a full maintenance contract on it so it has been regularly maintained and in good working order. Currently mounted on the left hand side of the stairs. Will need to be electrically disconnected by a spark and the electrics made safe (as the power still needs to be on in the property). In the CH42 area of Tranmere, near to the Sportsmans Pub. Ring Neil on 07845 702 293 and I can arrange a viewing. grin

My mum badly needs a stairlift and we are waiting for social services to sort one out which could take months. Can this be installed on any staircase?

Thanks Zelda.

I have been round to view the stairlift today and providing we can get someone to move it, we would like it.

Any help gratefully received with this item, people. I would like it to go to someone who will use it. I haven't the heart to disconnect it and weigh it in with a scrappy ...... mum would never forgive me grin

Charities have become a bit picky over the years as to what they can and cannot sell on .... No furniture without the fire-resistant labels on them, stairlifts over a certain age they wouldn't entertain. I tried the 2 that advertise that they buy them in in the Wirral News/Globe and they say that its over a certain age ... doesn't matter that it had a maintenance contract on it and was regularly maintained...... cry

am i seeing right is this item free and any idea of the cost of disconnecting it and reconnection, is it made for bendy stairs as well as straight set of stairs?
Posted By: bandit

Re: FREE TO A GOOD HOME - WORKING STANNAH STAIRLIFT - 31st Jul 2012 2:49pm

Yes you ARE seeing it right, it is FREE. It is for a straight run of stairs (12 or 13 stairs). It would need someone to disconnect it/reconnect it. I have no idea how much it would cost

Re: FREE TO A GOOD HOME - WORKING STANNAH STAIRLIFT - 3rd Aug 2012 4:15pm

Thank you to all who have offered to help on this one but we still need an electrician to come forward and give an estimate.

I spoke with two last week and the first one won't touch it and the second quoted me 300, thats if it can be done.

I have submited an application to the social services for one to be fitted free, yes I know it may take sometime but there we go.

If anyone else can take advantage of this very kind offer from Neil, please feel free to jump in.

Many thanks.

Hi Dave
If you would like to see it and possibly remove it (safely), give me a ring on 639 8520 and we can arrange a day/time.
Much obliged mate.

Well, nobody got in touch so I disconnected the bloody thing myself. A doddle, really. So many people trying to rip other people off (by charging 300 to disconnect it ... However, being on my own doing it, I couldnt remove it in 1 piece so I smashed it to bits and binned it. I left the thick aluminium track in the driveway against the wall and some thieving scrap collector who had been up and down the roads asking for scrap must have taken it and weighed it in ........... so all in all, everybody's loss and a scumbag's gain .....
