I’m thinking of buying some 2nd hand equipment, what’s everyone’s experiences with doing this?

Depends on where the 2nd hand equipment is coming from… some parents take really great care of their child’s equipment, others not so much so.  I try to only purchase from parents that I either know or that I feel confident with the condition of the equipment via pictures - it’s also challenging too if you don’t know if it will fit, so you hate to invest in something that may or may not fit.  I also try to find equipment that I can clean or that has upholstery that I can remove to disinfect.  I have a medically fragile child so germs are always a concern ...
