Things You Should Never Buy Used

March 13, 2012 by staff 

Things You Should Never Buy Used, Last month we looked at some of the products you should always buy used—items like books, plates and video games, all of which cost a lot less on the secondhand market without any significant reduction in quality. But not every product is a good deal when purchased used.

Some secondhand goods carry significant safety hazards, some wear down in quality after repeated use, and some are just plain gross.

Here are a few to avoid.
In New York City, a used mattress might as well be a smallpox blanket. Fear of bedbugs means that there’s virtually no secondhand mattress market to speak of, and you’re a lot more likely to see an old mattress in the back of a garbage truck than on Craigslist. While that means you can get one for super cheap, we still say it’s not worth the risk in urban areas where bedbugs are a concern.But even in the absence of the little critters, buying a used mattress is still a bad proposition.
