Where to Sell Wheelchairs (New and Used)
If you’re selling wheelchair equipment, you could try selling to a local medical equipment and supply store. Nevertheless, you could always count on the online websites and resources listed here to help you make a sale.
Amazon is the largest online shopping platform in the world; you’re most likely to get a sale on Amazon whether you’re selling a brand new or used wheelchair.
Putting a wheelchair up for sale on Amazon is very easy; the hard part is selling it. There are thousands of sellers on this store with insanely competitive prices displaying their wares. Learn how the site works before putting your wheelchair up for sale.
The Mobility Market USA
The Mobility Market USA is a platform dedicated to buyers and sellers of pre-owned mobility aid equipment.
The selling process on this website is quite different. If your wheelchair has a sale value of less than $100, you can post an ad for free (i.e without paying any advertising fees). However, if you’re selling a wheelchair worth more than $100, you will be charged between $20 and $80 for the item.
While the fee might be a little high compared with other websites, I still consider this to be a great platform for those looking to sell their wheelchairs very fast. The site is dedicated to only buyers and sellers of pre-owned mobility aid equipment. This means that you’re more likely to make a sale in the shortest time possible.
Oakham Mobility & Healthcare
Oakham Mobility & Healthcare is another platform that allows you to exchange your old electric wheelchair for some cash. To sell your wheelchair on this site, you have to first meet their requirements.
eBay is a leading e-commerce platform that facilitates consumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer sales. This means that brands and consumers alike get to sell products to other consumers through the website.
eBay allows you to sell your new and used item to consumers all around the globe. The site has a dedicated mobility/walking equipment category where you can post your item up for sale. To sell your wheelchair, you have to create an auction for it. You’ll also be required to include a detailed description, add photos, and payment and shipping options. It is important that you take good photos and fill the description area with useful information as this increases the chances of making a sale.

Used Wheelchairs USA
This site is another good option to try out, however, you might receive less profit compared with what you would get from a private sale. Also, this site only focuses on pre-owned electric wheelchairs.
Furthermore, you can only sell your pre-owned electric wheelchair if it’s in good working condition. The website provides strict requirements concerning the quality and types of wheelchairs that can be sold.
The difference between this website and all other e-commerce platforms is that the company will be the buyer purchasing your wheelchair, so you can sell your wheelchair very quickly if it meets all their requirements.
Buy Sell Wheelchairs
Buy Sell Wheelchairs is another classified advertisement site where you can sell your wheelchairs quickly, that’s if you’re selling an electric wheelchair.
Like many other classified ads sites, you will be charged a posting fee to sell on this site. The posting fee varies; the higher it is the more options you get to sell the item.
When creating your ad, you will be given 3 options for creating a listing. The first option – a $5 listing – only allows for one picture. The other listings allow you to post multiple pictures and have your listing displayed on multiple pages. This could help you to make more sales in a short time, but you will earn less profit.
Craiglist is a classified advertisements website with sections devoted to a variety of topics including wheelchairs. If you’re going to sell on Craiglist, you might incur some costs. This is because the platform charges you a fee for selling certain products on it. Creating an ad and making a sale is very similar to other e-commerce platforms listed here. You will have to select the right price, write a compelling description, and do a bang-up marketing job to get your product to sell.
If you have a high-quality used wheelchair that is still in great working condition and you want to sell it off pretty fast, then you can do so on Mobility Buyers.
The company will access your wheelchair to confirm that it meets their requirements. If it does, they will offer you a price for the wheelchair. And if you accept the price, you’d be contacted to prepare the wheelchair for collection at a certain date and time. At the point of collection, you get paid in cash for the price of the wheelchair.
Just like selling any other item, you have to be a great salesman to make a sale on any of these online platforms. Take great pictures of the wheelchair, write a good product description, and attach an affordable price that will not only set you apart from other sellers but also get you enough profit.
To get your item to sell faster, you could advertise it for a fee. But this would take a huge cut from your profits.
