Versus Finding a Cheap Scooter from a Garage Sale or Non-Specialized Store
What exactly is specialization, and why is it important when making big purchases? Larger companies such as Canadian Tire or Wal-Mart sell just about everything, including the kitchen sink. When such a vast array of products is being sold in one location, it is difficult to find experts in any one particular product.
However, when you reach out to a company that specializes in a specific type of product or service, you interact with employees who are experts in their field. Their career is focused on collecting and building a knowledge base in their specialized area. Their expertise is narrow but deep, which is why you want someone like them on your side when you’re searching for an expensive or long-use product. A scooter is a big commitment, and we want to make sure you’re committing to the right one!
Don’t Go Just Anywhere
Let’s say you find a scooter or wheelchair at a garage sale, or at a non-specialized store or warehouse. It may seem like a really great deal until you take it home. When something breaks or stops working, you’ll have to search long and hard to find the correct replacement parts (not to mention needing someone to replace them for you). Especially if you’re buying it from a garage sale. That’s it. There are no warranties in a private sale.
When you buy from a business that does not deal in medical equipment, you risk them not having the correct parts. There is no follow-through. You buy it, and you’re left to figure the rest out on your own.
Besides worrying about parts, repairs and fittings, when you go to a non-specialized store you’re being shown a very small selection. Not only do they not know what you need, but now you can’t even see all the choices available to you.
