What To Do With Unwanted Stairlifts?

If the unwanted stairlift is still in your loved one’s home, it can make it difficult to renovate and resell the house if you choose to.
Stairlifts have to be installed by professionals to make sure that they are safe and secure for use. because of this a professional will have to uninstall and remove the stairlift and it probably isn’t something you can do yourself.
