What is the Best Way to Sell My CPAP?

If you already own a CPAP machine, there will come a time when you either don't need it anymore or want to upgrade to a new device. CPAP equipment is valuable, so you can help finance your next one by selling your current one.

In this post, we'll help you sell your CPAP gear by telling you some of the common myths about selling CPAP machines. Don't get discouraged about the second-hand CPAP market, keep reading and we'll help you learn how to sell your equipment.


1. You Can Only Sell a Newer CPAP Machine

There's a misconception out there that you can only sell a used CPAP machine if it's under 5 or so years. The fact of the matter is that older CPAP technology is still extremely valuable, even with the advancements we've made over the years.

If you find the right buyer, there's no reason that they won't be able to make use of your old CPAP machine or refurbish it so it's like new. At 1800CPAP.com, selling refurbished CPAP machines is our bread and butter. Contact us today to sell us your equipment and we'll professionally service and restore it for resale.


2. Used CPAP Accessories Are Worthless

CPAP machines come with accessories, like tubes, masks, and filters. Often, people will buy these separately to upgrade from the factory equipment or to customize their CPAP setup.

These accessories aren't worthless after you get your use out of them. You can easily find buyers that are looking to replace broken equipment or deal them to a certified refurbisher to fix up and sell.


3. It's Difficult to Find Buyers

You may be looking at your old CPAP machine and think that there just aren't enough interested buyers out there. As we mentioned at the top, millions of people suffer from moderate to severe sleep apnea.

1 in 7 people has OSA worldwide. Not only is it easy to find buyers for your used CPAP equipment, but there are companies like ours that will take it off your hands and fix it up to sell again.
