It can be tempting to buy used restaurant chairs when opening a new restaurant. Some people consider it a great way to save money, especially if they’re operating on a limited budget. Used restaurant chairs are not always cheaper and there are many disadvantages and drawbacks to this option and it even may end up costing more. This article will discuss the complications regarding used commercial restaurant chairs.
 
New restaurant chairs are easily replacable
 
Buying used restaurant chares for sale has its downsides. For example, in some cases, there are restaurant chairs which are beyond reparation. Restaurant chairs and restaurant table tops which aren’t solid wood can’t be refinished. Therefore, the only option remaining is to attempt to replace the chairs. However, if you’ve purchased a set of 30 or 40 restaurant chairs and only a few need replacing it may be very difficult to locate the original supplier. Therefore, you’re left contemplating how to find a solution. Trying to find one or two chairs which match your décor is a hard task, considering you’ve bought them from a third-party seller.  While if you buy new commercial restaurant chairs it will be very easy to replace, because you’ll have direct contact with the supplier or even the manufacturer and can easily order the necessary number of chairs. Missing a few restaurant chairs from a set can be irritating as matching restaurant furniture contributes to the overall ambiance of your venue.
 
USED RESTAURANT Chairs may lack QUALITY
 
The used restaurant chairs you are purchasing may not be designed for commercial use, so it may be up to the high standard of the restaurant industry. Used chairs have another disadvantage in the fact that purchasing them automatically voids any warranty they may have. There is also, absolutely no guarantee that the used commercial chairs have been certified or tested for quality control. Purchasing chairs which haven’t been tested and haven’t been through safety procedures represents a risk for your clients. It may collapse under enough weight pressure and consequentially injure your customers. The same risk applies to commercial chairs which haven’t been maintained properly. If the used restaurant chairs you purchased are for outdoor use, you may discover they rust after getting wet. The outdoor chairs may not be UV resistant which would make them fade or degrade quickly after being in the sunlight for longer periods.

USED FURNITURE IS CHEAPER
Used restaurant chairs may be the cheaper alternative, however under certain circumstances you can receive a discount on new restaurant chairs if you buy them in bulk. Usually, the prices for used restaurant chairs and new restaurant chairs do not differ by a lot. Another factor to consider is longevity. While used restaurant chairs might be less expensive, you may end up replacing them sooner than predicted. Moreover, if you’re planning long-term it might be better to purchase new commercial restaurant chairs.  Finally, buying second-hand means you’re limiting yourself to the options available on the market, thus you’ll have to decorate your venue based on the furniture rather than create your dream ambiance.
