What's the difference between 'used' and 'refurbished' pedicure nail spa chairs? 

Buying used or refurbished pedicure nail spa chairs could save a lot of money, especially when you're just starting your own salon business.  The difference could be in the thousands of dollars - but big saving comes with higher risk, and to avoid headaches of equipment malfunction you need to do intensive research. 

Used pedicure nail spa chairs could be found on major local listings like Craigslist (, Facebook Marketplace, eBay, Google shopping, etc.  Price ranging from $150 to $2000 depending on condition, brand, and seller's situation.  Most of used pedicure chairs sold are 'sold as is' and if you're lucky, everything runs smoothly, if not, it'll be a disaster. Due to the complexity of pedicure nail chair, repairing is costly, time consuming, and OEM parts are not always available.  Therefore, you may end up spending much more than expected.  

Refurbished pedicure nail spa chairs are usually sold by a company who has experience in repairing and renewing spa chairs.  They may cost few hundred dollars more than used pedicure chairs 'sold as is' by owners, but most of the time they are under warranty (at least 6 months @  So you can have a peace of mine, more time to focus on your clients and less time worrying about nail chair malfunctioning.
