We’re sharing some top pointers on what to look for when buying used office chairs to help you choose the right chair for you, but also to protect you from purchasing shoddy equipment or fake brands.
Top 3 things you should check before buying a used office chair
1. Is it a genuine brand?
While there are plenty of apps and platforms that sell second hand office furniture, with LOF you can rest assured that all the products you’re buying are genuine. We are official resellers of all the brands we sell, including Humanscale, Orangebox and Steelcase.
We carefully select all our used office chairs and refurbish them to the highest standard to ensure that you can enjoy equipment that looks and functions just like new, but for a fraction of the cost.
2. Is it built for purpose?
When selecting a used office chair you will want to consider what you are using it for and how often. For instance, if you power through at a desk for longer than a usual 7 - 8 hour period then you may want to consider getting a chair that offers more ergonomic features and extra padding to ensure your body is protected and comfortable. On the other hand, if you’re only planning to use your chair for a couple of hours a week, to check emails at home for instance, then you probably won’t need the highest-spec operator chair.
We sell office chairs to suit a variety of purposes and settings, including chairs for break-out and meeting rooms, reception areas, canteens, and of course the full-spec operator chairs for ultimate comfort and support while you work at your computer desk.
3. Does it come with a warranty or after-sales support?
If you’re a business who is kitting out an entire office with second-hand chairs, you may want to consider choosing a seller who can offer a sufficient warranty and after-sales support to ensure that your equipment lasts and remains fit for purpose.
At LOF we offer a 3 months parts warranty on many of our used office chairs and an exceptional after-sales customer service should you need some assistance or advice with your product. We also have options to deliver and install your chair at a time to suit you.
So, there you have our round-up of what you should look out for when buying a used office chair. We hope this will help you choose the perfect chair for your needs and should you decide to shop with us, we are always happy to help!
