Should I buy a concentrator from sites like Craigslist or eBay?

No. Purchasing an oxygen concentrators from websites like Craigslist or eBay provide no guarantees and, in some cases no warranties or product returns. Any individual can post an ad on these sites and, there is no way to guarantee that the seller is legitimate, or the machine is in proper working condition.

Buying oxygen concentrators from an individual selling on eBay is very risky because these are medical devices and should be dealt with seriously. You may find oxygen concentrators online for less than a few hundred dollars, but it’s possible that these don’t meet any medical standards and may have not even been properly refurbished. It is also important to be wary of purchasing any oxygen concentrator that does not include a warranty.

We recommend that you do your research before purchasing a used or refurbished oxygen concentrator. When you purchase from an Accredited and Authorized oxygen supply company, your concentrator will be covered by the manufacturer warranty. While under warranty, you'll have confidence that your unit will be fixed if any if there is any malfunctions or issues.

With the importance of using an oxygen concentrator on your overall health, it’s worth investing in a high-quality, reliable device with a company that you can trust.
