It has come to the point when you need to toss out your old chair and replace it with something new. The padding is worn down, the adjustments are not as functional as they used to be, your base is scratched, or maybe your chair is even flat-out broken. Owning an office chair is essential for any individual that spends time working at a desk during the day, whether it be at your business or at home. No matter what your reasoning is for needing a new chair, it is a problem that needs to be addressed as soon as possible and with everything else in life that becomes outdated, you will have to spend some money to get the latest and greatest. If breaking the bank is not a possibility for you right now and you need a more affordable alternative, consider purchasing a used office chair. There are many benefits to buying used office chairs including lower pricing, functionality, and upkeep. There are also a few things to look out for when purchasing used furniture.
Unknown to some people, bad chairs is a likely reason why most office workers suffer from back pains and even poor circulation. This is because a bad office chair will not make you feel comfortable and will also not provide you ample support for your body. Sitting on long hours block your circulation but sitting on long hours on a bad chair can make it worse.
To be sure, when you are shopping for office chairs, it is much better to buy them in department stores and see the chairs for yourself rather than ordering them online. If you can see them up close, you can inspect every little component of the chair and see if they will be comfortable to use. In fact, if you ask help from the salesperson, you can even get to try the chair.
Look at the Manufacturer Warranty - Almost every office chair comes with a manufacturer warranty, and if they do not it is probably not worth your investment. It is crucial to read each manufacturer’s warranty to determine if the chair of interest will be a worthwhile purchase. Find out what parts are warranted and for how long each component of the chair is warranted for. You can tell a lot by a manufacturer’s warranty; if their parts are warranted for 10 years or have a lifetime warranty, this shows they are that confident in their product and construction of their chair that they are willing to take the risk of extending the warranty for multiple years. Remember when a part breaks on your office chair, that comes out of the manufacturer’s funds to have to replace it which is why some warranties are very limited. It is important to keep in mind that all manufacturer’s will warrant their seat fabrics for less time than their components, which is standard with everyone because this is the first part of all chairs to fade with time due to how often it gets rubbed/used. If you want to make certain that the fabric on your chair will not fade over time, try looking for a chair that has a higher grade fabric as an option or opt for a vinyl/leather chair that tolerate a bit more use and abuse than fabric chairs.
If what you need are some sturdy chairs that will last a lifetime, wooden chairs can be a great solution. In school halls you will find chairs that date back many eras and decades. Wood is tough and strong, and as long as it is only ever used indoors, the lifespan is extremely long. Wood however is not the cheapest material for your chairs, and these days there are many more economical alternatives available.
