Okay, so maybe you aren’t ever actually tempted to buy the chairs, you just want to sit in it for a few minutes. We underst& (& we’re likely sitting right next to you, dreaming about how much better our chronically ill body would feel if this chair was in our living room & wondering if we could write it off on our taxes.) But before you plunk down a credit card, here are some things you should know. Here is an article we wanted to pass along to keep you informed!
5 Things You Need To Know Before You Buy A Massage Chair at the Fair
One great venue to actually try massage chairs our various events. You can find home shows, county fairs & other types of shows where massage chairs will be displayed. This is a great opportunity to try out some of the latest massage chairs. Although, this is a great venue, you do need to be careful of some vendors. Based on our customers who have purchased at shows & our own first h& look, We offer the following 5 tips on how to avoid key problem areas to find the best massage chair for you.
1. Massage Chair Motors are Vital
You want to find out 2 things. Find out where the motors are made. The best motors come from Japan. They are precision made & long lasting. The motors need sufficient torque to power through the massage, since all your weight is put on them. You also want to ask how many motors they have. It is far better to have fewer high quality motors then many. You want to avoid getting low quality motors or you will have many service calls in the future.
2. Look for These Warranty Points
You want to get adequate warranty protection when buying a massage chair at a home show or county fair. You can sometimes even negotiate longer terms, since many times you are dealing directly with the manufacturer. You should at least get 3 years parts, 3 years labor & make sure they have in home technician service. You want at least 90 days as part of your deal. Check to see if it is nationally available. If its only available where you are buying the chair, then they obviously do the service from one location.
3. We Get Our Massage Chair From Panasonic’s Factory
One of our favorite sales claims is where the massage chair comes from or where it is made. Some of our customers told us that salespeople would claim to get their massage chair from Panasonic’s factory. This is a weird claim & we see it as a tactic to get you to believe somehow their quality is the same, but of course at a substantial discount to the Panasonic chair. Now, how could this be? It must be the same as the Panasonic, be careful!
4. Import Warehouse at Your Service
We saw a few small time massage chair operators. Ones that import one chair & sell them at home shows or county fairs. We are not saying to not buy from them. Every entrepreneur started somewhere! It is just you need to be careful, that you are buying for the long term & they may be selling for the short term. They usually have an arsenal of electronic gadgets & a massage chair. Basically, whatever you can stick in a container! They will offer you a low price & lots of features, but you need to be careful of how long the chair will work & if they will be around to fix it later!
5. This is The Deal of The Century
We all know the saying: If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is! This is certainly true when looking for a massage chair. The major manufacturers offer show specials, so you truly can get a good deal. Where you must be careful, are the small time vendors. They bring in a cheap chair loaded with features & sell it at ridiculously low prices. Avoid the temptation of short term gain for long term pain. You may be buying a long string of breakdowns, long waits for parts (if ever) & expensive technician service calls. Be careful of the deal of the century!
You can really get good deals & find some of the major massage chair br&s & top models at home shows & county fairs. We just want you to go with your eyes open, so you find the right massage chair for your requirements. It should last you years & provide you countless hours of soothing relaxation. Head our tips & you will be rewarded with the perfect massage chair. Happy shopping!
