Should I Buy a New or Used Electric Fireplace?

Apr 1, 2008
Everyone likes a good deal that the whole world can agree upon. One of the best ways to secure a deal is to purchase items used. Or is it? Ok, it is almost a sacred cow these days to knock venues that sell used items. After all, multi-million dollar publicly traded companies have emerged from the strength of selling used items. In all honesty, there are a number of great benefits for purchasing certain items. A $30 hardcover book that has only been read once and then sold on Ebay for $4 is a great deal. But some items are far better purchases as brand new items as opposed to second hand variations.

When it comes to purchasing items such as fireplace electric items it is a far wiser idea to purchase such a device brand new. There are a number of reasons for this and when these reasons are explored the concept of purchasing new as opposed to used becomes transparently obvious. Of course, the main reason that you want to purchase new is not to see your purchase turn out to be a loss.

For example, if you purchase an item new and it is a defective item, returning the item for an exchange is fairly easy. (Why would a fireplace electric seller not want to replace a defective item?) When you purchase such an item used, well, you can't really exchange the item because the seller only had one and he sold it to you! Of course, you could ask for a refund and you may receive one, with the operative word being "may". And by the way, are there any warranties available for those who purchase used? The answer is no. Private sellers can not offer manufacturer warranties after the initial expiration date of any warranties. Yes, there are some deals that can be acquired when purchasing used but there are also a number of risks inherent with such a purchase.

Now, this is not to knock buying items used as there are always great benefits to buying many rare and unique collectibles or even common household items. But when the item in question is an expensive electronics item, then it may be a smart move to stick with buying items brand new. This will make life a lot easier for the purchaser as the multitude of worries of buying a electric fireplace item used are eliminated and that is a worthwhile move!
