We will keep this nice and quick and easy.If you are looking to find good quality used office chairs, such as Steelcase Gestures or Herman Miller Aeron, and you don’t want to be fleeced, you have to take into account a number of factors including such things as:

Can you physically check out the chair?

With Covid, most people’s movements are restricted and a lot of furniture showrooms and warehouses are shut as a result of restrictions that have been put in place. This means that if you want to buy a used office chair you may have to buy online ‘sight unseen’. Are you happy to take this risk?

What Warranties is the seller offering?

There are warranties and then there are warranties, some are not worth the paper they are written on and have more get out clauses than a popular political contest. Again, this comes down to do you trust the seller?

What do the seller’s online reviews say about them?

Lets face it, online reviews can be fixed, for the better or the worse, but what do they generally say about the seller, are they generally good or bad? What have other peoples experiences been with them?, do they deliver on time? is what they are selling live up to what they claim?

What about returns?

So, you have put down the cash, your used office chair could be a Herman Miller, could be a smaller brand, has arrived. However you are unhappy with it and need to send it back? Do you have to pay again to send it back, will you get a replacement, can you get a refund easily or will you have to settle for a credit note, or raise a dispute with Paypal or your credit card company.

Our recommendation on how to get a good deal on used office chairs

Our recommendation on how best to protect yourself online when you are buying a used office chair, and get a good deal as well, is to check out what is on offer as part of the Amazon Renewed Program.
