Traditionally, we avoid buying used items because we think about the problems they may have. After all, why are they being sold. Still, at CryoChambers.com wt believe you should be thinking positively about a used cryotherapy chambers – odds are, it’s a good deal now.
Machines Depreciate Faster Than Cars!
To help put chamber depreciation into perspective, consider what happens as soon as you finish signing the paper on that $60,000 cryo sauna you’ve been eyeing.
Within three years, a cryotherapy machine loses as much as 50% of its value:
- Before the ink dries, your cryo chamber has lost 5% to 10% of its value, so it is now worth about $54,000. It hasn’t even been used yet.
- One year later, it has gone down 15%, regardless of how little you use it. Frequent use of your chamber over that first year can reduce the value by as much as 20%. That means one year later, it could be worth as little as $48,000.
- Three years after you purchased it, it is worth as less as a half of its original value, no matter how little you used it.
By purchasing a 1 to 3 year-old machine, the original buyer has already “suffered” the worst of the depreciation. Moreover, you can expect it to depreciate by $5,000 over the next three years.
