    Lightly Used Wheelchair Pricing Help

    Hello all,

    So I got really lucky and it looks like I'm not going to need the wheelchair my insurance company got me and I'm looking to sell it.

    Thing is, I'm having a hard time figuring out what a fair price is for it and where the best place to sell it would be. So I was wandering if you guys could help me out.

    Here's the setup, I'll try to get more details later - the receipt for it and I are in different countries at the moment.

    - The Natural Fit Rims
    - Thick ROHO pad (It's entirely inflatable)
    - acta-back
    - The wheelchair is made by the comfort company, it's collapsible and it's super simple and light (compared to my first wheelchair it has a lot less support, only the back and a curved metal band that goes down to support the wheels and the foot place.)

    Everything new was around 4200 if I remember correctly, and it has only been used for a few thousand feet in an airport and occasionally as an office chair. So it's practically brand new.

    I'll entertain offers for it, though, I need to battle the insurance company and see if they will let me keep the Natural fit wheels. Apparently they don't cover such "sporty" items.

    The market for used chairs is very soft. Tilite itself can't sell its demo chairs on ebay for more than a few hundred dollars. If it's not 100% customized for the person using it the value drops significantly. If you have a desireable and/or common seat size you might get lucky, though.

    I'd start at under $1000 and see what happens.

    Yep wheelchairs are worse than vehicles when it comes to retaining their price. Unless you can find some one that has your exact measurements and was about to pay cash for that same chair then don't expect a big payday, but since you aren't out anything then it's all profit.
    Most everything I say is

    If it didn't cost you anything, consider donating it to a charity that provides wheelchairs for the underprivileged. I would imagine you could deduct a fair amount from taxes.
