Online sources for buying & selling equipment for the disability community

When you’re looking to buy or sell a wheelchair, adapted vehicle, lifts, ramps or any piece of equipment that has been adapted or modified for a person with a disability, there are a couple of sources that we wanted to share with you.

Arguably, the best free site is on Facebook and is called the Disability Trading Zone. With nearly 14,000 members, it is a free service and tends to attract mostly from the spinal cord injury community. You can buy, sell or trade all kinds of stuff on there and has a keyword search to find things easier.

If you want to consider the paid advertising route, there is the Disabled Dealer Magazine. This is an online publication charging $19 for a text ad or $29 for an ad with a photo. There are about 15 categories housing the various items with some not containing a lot of goods.

If you come across any other sites, let us know at info@norcalsci.org
