If you're looking for a cheap or a high specification treadmill
for a great price then you might want to consider buying a reconditioned
treadmill - that is, one which has been previously used but
'made good' for sale.
Commercial gyms, businesses and other organisations will often lease
treadmills and when the lease has expired the equipment will be returned
to the supplier, stripped down, cleaned, have its worn parts (e.g. motor
and belt) completely replaced and then tested before being sold on with
a discount that reflects its status.
This can prove to be a great way for individuals, smaller gyms or
business to get hold of some decent kit without spending too much.
Things to remember when buying a reconditioned treadmill
It is possible to find some superb bargains but do be sure to
check a few things out first so you can be confident you aren't
simply buying a used, non-reconditioned treamill.
- Find out about more about your seller: what is their reputation
like and where do they get the equipment from
- Ask if they know if treadmill was in full working order
before being reconditioned
- Ask what parts are usually replaced during reconditioning and whether
this happened with the treadmill you are enquiring about
- Check who refurbished the treadmill: the manufacturer, an
approved repairer or the seller
- Get the seller to tell you their testing process and confirm
the treadmill you are interested in was inspected
- See if a warranty/guarantee is supplied with the treadmill - it's
not uncommon to get a 3 months parts and warranty - and ask if
there are any extended warranty options available
Also make sure you know what a
refurbished treadmill is as they are different from each other.
