Where to Sell Electric Wheelchairs

You have a used electric wheelchair that you no longer need, but now what? Whether you’re using a newer motorized wheelchair or the person who used the older one has passed on, it can be a good idea to sell the electric wheelchair if it is still in good working condition.

Selling Electric Wheelchairs to a Dealer

Our first recommendation is to see if a local dealer is interested in a trade-in or buying a used power wheelchair at a reduced cost. Sometimes they buy a motorized wheelchair for its parts. The amount they pay you varies on a case-by-case basis. Some factors include the age of the electric wheelchair, wear and tear, and if the model is still being manufactured or not. Use our dealer locator to find an authorized Pride® provider near you.

Selling Electric Wheelchairs in a Yard Sale

If selling your wheelchair to a dealer doesn’t work out but you’d rather not sell online, you can always do it the old-school way. Word of mouth and yard sales are alternate ways to sell your wheelchair that have been tried and true. It always seems that someone knows someone who knows someone that needs exactly what you’ve got. However, there are some precautions to take when selling your power wheelchair. This includes:

  • Making sure you receive payment first
  • If being paid in cash, studying the cash for signs of counterfeit notes
  • If receiving money through PayPal or other online payment services, log into your account to confirm payment by typing the address directly into your browser, rather than relying on an email confirmation that you have received funds

Selling Electric Wheelchairs Online

From Facebook Marketplace to eBay and Amazon, the options are endless when it comes to selling your used wheelchair online. There are even websites specifically for selling electric wheelchairs, like buysellwheelchairs.com. Each website has their own procedures and best practices for selling your electric wheelchair online.

Just like when selling a wheelchair locally, there are some safety precautions you want to take to make sure that you don’t get scammed:

  • If mailing or shipping an item to a buyer, make sure to pay for insurance and require a signature at arrival to have proof that the item was received by the buyer. Also ask for a photocopy of buyers ID and ensure that the recipient matches the name on the ID.
  • If you are receiving money through PayPal, ensure you meet the requirements of their seller protection scheme. This includes retaining proof of delivery that can be tracked online.

We recommend checking out the specific website that you want to use for resources on creating listings for the power wheelchair that you want to sell.

Donating an Electric Wheelchair

If you find that you’d rather pay it forward than sell, there are many organizations around the country and across the globe that would graciously accept a used electric wheelchair. We compiled a list of groups that would be more than happy to take and rehome a used motorized wheelchair. Check out our article on donating an electric wheelchair to learn more.

Information to Include When Selling an Electric Wheelchair

Whether selling or donating a power wheelchair, it is helpful to include the owner’s manual, which also contains your power wheelchair’s serial number. If you no longer have a hard copy of the owner’s manual that came with your electric wheelchair, you may find a digital copy online. Click here to view Pride Mobility Products® owner’s manuals.

It is also important to let the new owner of the wheelchair know its serial number so that it can be referenced if they need to call Pride or a dealer with questions about servicing or parts.

Finally, it is important to know that warranties don’t transfer when you sell or donate your used electric wheelchair. If you bought a warranty for your product and it is in your name, then it can’t be used by anyone else, even if the chair is no longer yours. The warranty automatically becomes void.
