You should avoid this problem at the source. Purchase high-quality products from the right factories. Focus your efforts on controlling the quality of your products. It will help you reduce the probability of getting complaints from your customers.

In this article, I’ve shared a guideline about tackling such problems. Stick to the end if you want to get rid of customer complaints.

Why does a massage chair break down badly?

Massage chairs are a few pieces of home furniture that have become more than just a status symbol or an item to add to the house. They have become a therapeutic necessity for many people, especially those who suffer from back problems.

The three main reasons this happens are:

The customer does not use the massage chair correctly, failing (probability is minor)

We have observed that many customers do not use the chair correctly.

It could happen this way: The customer uses the chair for 20 minutes to half an hour per day. However, when they stop using the chair for two weeks, they get back pain.

To avoid such issues, you should be familiar with using a massage chair properly (

Massage chair in the process of transport collision resulting in core injury (probability is also minimal)

Transport collisions can also break down massage chairs. This prevents them from functioning correctly.

For example:

Once, a man moved his massage chair from his old apartment to his new one when involved in a collision. The massage chair was being transported by hand, and during transport, it collided with the back of a truck.

The back of the truck ripped off the massage chair’s control panel, and its battery pack came loose. It crushed these components beneath the weight of the massage chair and its heavy cast-iron base, resulting in an electrical short. This short ignited the massage chair’s belt, covered in flammable oil.

Massage chair in the production of quality problems already exist (a high probability)

Even though massage chairs are supposed to be comfortable and therapeutic, they often break down in less than a year. The main reason massage chairs break down so quickly is that they’re not made using proper materials. The major problem is in their production. This means that they aren’t produced in how they should be.

You heard it right once I listened to my customer complain that the defective rate of massage chairs he purchased from other factories was even as high as 70%!

How do you avoid buying a massage chair with quality problems in the beginning?

The market for massage chairs is booming. There are many brands and models to choose from. The most crucial factor to consider is the quality of materials. By materials, I mean the ones used to manufacture massage chairs.

Research shows that low-quality massage chairs may harm your health. Massage chairs with a substandard build cannot reach the desired temperature or pressure to provide a relaxing massage. This can cause your body to overheat. It will then lead to heatstroke or even death.

Here’s how you can avoid buying the wrong type of massage chairs:

Choose a mainstream brand recognized by the market and become a distributor.

Many people wonder how they can get into the massage chairs selling game.

The most straightforward way to become a distributor for a company you like and trust. While many companies allow you to become a distributor, choosing a market leader is essential. Leading manufacturer dominates its space and has been around for years. This approach is your best chance of success in the long run.

Many factories claim to manufacture goods for you, but not all of them will be ready to produce your goods accurately and on time. What is even worse is that they can also cause damage to your brand’s reputation.
