I was wondering if you could supply me with any information with regards to selling a wheelchair? ~Glenn Answer:
If you want to sell a used wheelchair call your local MDA office. Many local MDA offices often inform clients about available wheelchairs through newsletters, notices or word of mouth.
You might also be able to place "for sale" ads on the bulletin boards, Web sites and newsletters of rehabilitation hospitals, independent living centers, your state Rehabilitation Department or other local disability organizations. Ads sometimes appear in the classified pages of the daily newspapers or local "shoppers," or even on supermarket bulletin boards. Pawn shops and second-hand stores will sometimes accept walkers, wheelchairs, etc.
An Internet search for "buy and sell wheelchairs" reveals a number of Web sites that list second-hand mobility equipment. One such site is www.medmarketplace.com
- Medmarketplace.com allows private sellers to list products. Another cross-country source for used durable equipment is Disabled Dealer - www.disableddealer.com
- a magazine with regional editions in over 20 states.
