Massage chairs can be very expensive and to do away with the hefty price tag, you can always go for the pre-loved items. Choosing the right massage chair is already hard enough and if you go for the used products, it gets even harder because there are only limited selections.
But if you are diligent and you do your own research, you can really enjoy Big Savings!
Tip: Make sure that you purchase second hand massage chairs only at reputable stores or people you actually know so you won’t end up paying for more than you should.
There are only 2 online sources that we recommend:
Before you go shopping anywhere else, you should take time to look at Brookstone. They are one of the leaders when it comes to massage chairs and other hard to find items. They have very limited number of used products but it is almost like they are brand new at all. Look for the “Certified Pre-owned” label to make sure that you will be getting a high quality product.
Each of their pre-owned models go through an intensive quality inspection and testing by their in-house specialists. They take care of the necessary repairs and replace parts and upholstery if there is a need to do so. And what I really like about it is that they clean and sanitize the furniture first before putting it up for sale.
You can return your purchase if you are not satisfied within 2 months. Even if it is refurbished, it still comes with limited warranty.
What all these means is that you get to enjoy it almost like brand-new but with big savings.
With around 300 million customer accounts, there is no doubt that Amazon is one of the most trusted and complete online store. When people shop for products, they usually go to this e-commerce site because they have almost everything and they offer the lowest prices on the internet.
Amazon sells brand new and used massage chairs and their prices vary depending on the condition. They also have an amazing return and replacement policies so you don’t have to worry about your purchase.
Note that even if you are in their website, the item may be sold by a different seller and it is written right below the product name.
Buying Direct from a Person
Unless you completely know the seller, you should be extra cautious when purchasing directly from someone. Remember that what you are buying is a big ticket item and not a 5 Dollar dress. You might end up spending more as some of the parts are very expensive and might even be outdated. This is why we do not actually recommend this.
Aside from doing a little background check of the seller (just a quick look at his or her Facebook profile) and meticulously checking the chair, you should also be prepared with the basic questions like:
- Why are you selling it?
- Are there any defects?
- How was your experience with it?
- Is it still covered with the original warranty? Or can I return it if there are problems?
- How long did you have it?
You might not get all the answers that you need but at least you will have an idea of the product, the owner, and how it was handled.
Note: Not all robotic chairs are expensive. In fact, the HT iJoy Active 2.0, which is one of the latest models to come out, only costs less than $500.
