With inflation continuing to rise, purchasing new furniture, appliances, electronics, or an outdoor grill, can be overly taxing on the wallet. This is why the idea of buying open box items, also known as used, pre-owned, or refurbished items, has become more popular over the last few years.
Some may say that buying an open box product diminishes its value or doesn’t have the same emotional resonance as buying new. The feel of the pristine texture, the look of unblemished pieces of craftsmanship, and the smell of raw materials combine to provide a viscerally exciting moment.
Although there’s nothing like using a brand-new item for the first time straight out of the box, purchasing open box has plenty of its own worthwhile benefits.
First and foremost, purchasing an open box item saves you money right off the top. Because the item has been used (and possibly refurbished) or because it no longer has its original packaging, retailers will always sell these products at discounted rates. Most also come with extended warranties so if the product fails to live up to like-new standards, you’re not out hundreds or thousands of dollars with nothing to show for it but a overly-priced paperweight.
Purchase items not currently on the open market
A lot of times you will be able to find that rare item that is no longer on the market. Perhaps you have something you love, but a piece needs replacing. Searching for open box items can open the door to finding what you need—and even that rare find of something you’ve always wanted but could never find.
DIY BBQ offers many open box items to provide a wonderful outdoor grilling experience. These items have generally been used for photos or display purposes, or the packaging was damaged or open upon delivery. These items have been quality-checked to guarantee they have been inspected and tested to ensure like-new condition. Any damage will be disclosed in pictures and prior to sale. We also offer a full warranty on all open box items.
