1. Do your research
Reliable Source? Money-back-Gurantee? US Customer Service? Repair Service?
Make sure you are purchasing from a reliable source. How long has the company been in business? If the person you are purchasing from is a reseller, do they have a solid relationship with the importer or manufacturer of the unit they are selling? Do they work for a multi-level-marketing company? Do they have any medical or professional clinical training, or consult with someone who does?
These are important questions to ask before you buy. There is nothing wrong with purchasing from a reseller, but you should make sure they are experienced, and can take care of your needs down the road—preferably addressing not only your PEMF needs, but considering your other health needs, too. Most companies require you to stick with you dealer for the long-term, meaning that if you need assistance with protocols, repairs, or warranty issues, the reseller will be your point of contact. Resellers do not necessarily need a medical background, but it can be a great help to deal with one who does have medical training, especially when it comes to proper protocols.
Service should be one of the most important factors in your purchasing decision. Make sure you purchase from someone accessible – especially after the money-back guarantee or warranty runs out.
In our experience, the most reputable products come with money-back guarantees. In addition, the factory warranty on these systems is important. PEMF units are electrical devices, and can have problems just like any other electrical equipment. Find out where you will send the unit if you do have a problem, and ask about expected turnaround times for repairs, as some systems have to be shipped back to the manufacturer overseas, meaning it could take months for your unit to be returned. Find out if the party you’re buying from has a repair service in the US.
