When it comes time to purchase continuous positive airway pressure equipment, sleep apnea therapy patients have plenty of places where they can find the CPAP machines, masks, and supplies that they need. There are several online retailers that carry a vast selection of products, and for patients living in proximity to even a mid-sized city, a local outlet will usually be able to offer equipment as well. As many patients will attest, there are advantages to both shopping locally and browsing equipment online. For CPAP patients in Seattle, however, RespShop can offer the convenience of both, which is surely the best deal of all.
There are a number of reasons why many CPAP therapy patients prefer to purchase their supplies locally and in person. Local stores offer sizing guides that can help patients pick the right sized mask for them and they can also get a better feel for machines and accessory equipment – like the hose lift, for example – than they might if they’re new buyers purchasing over the internet. Many patients also like talking to CPAP specialists and technicians about their CPAP products in person.
There are also plenty of advantages to shopping for equipment and supplies online. Online retailers, including RespShop, have larger selections of CPAP masks and machines – and accompanying items like filters, headgears, chinstraps, etc. – than you’ll find anywhere in the world, and many online retailers boast a wider range of products than you’ll be able to find in sleep centers or other local carriers of CPAP equipment. We’re also able to offer lower prices than you’ll find if you shop in person.
For sleep apnea therapy patients living in the greater Seattle area, why not experience the best of both worlds?
Located in Redmond, Washington, RespShop has been the Pacific Northwest’s trusted online CPAP retailer for more than five years now. Over that time, we’ve helped tens of thousands of patients find the equipment they need to properly treat their sleep apnea therapy. Our knowledgeable sales and information team has reliably answered patients’ questions, and can help you set up your ramp, find the quietest CPAP machine, or pick the right mask for you and your budget. We’ve helped plenty of customers find what they were looking for when they dropped by, and we are also able to help with something else: saving money.
The primary advantage online retailers have over local outlets is that we’re able to offer the best prices on CPAP equipment. We have contracts with all of the major CPAP manufacturers – including ResMed, Phillips Respironics, DeVilbiss, Fisher & Paykel, APEX, Somnetics, and more – and because we buy in bulk, we get the best deals from manufacturers. These savings are then passed on to our customers! If you want the lowest prices from the best manufacturers, there’s no better place to buy in person than RespShop.
Of course, if you’re near Seattle, you can still get all of the in person help you’ll ever need without having to pay more for your equipment. Our office staff is trained to help customers find what they need at our office location in Redmond, and they enjoy actively helping patients treat their sleep apnea. From what we’ve noticed, our customers enjoy it too.
Take Fred as an example. Fred is a longtime CPAP user, and one day, he found one of our online listings and drove over to Redmond to buy a new CPAP mask. In the past, Fred had had some trouble getting the most out of his sleep apnea therapy. While using a CPAP had helped him feel more alert, he still thought that he wasn’t quite getting the results he needed.
When Fred came in, our sales team noticed that he sported a thick mustache. They asked what kind of mask Fred used, and he said nasal. Knowing that nasal masks are often ineffective for patients with mustaches – thick facial hair disrupts the seal above the upper lip, which significantly reduces air pressure – our team recommended a nasal pillow mask instead. The pillows rest on the nares and they are not impacted by facial hair. Following the advice of the service team, Fred purchased the AirFit P10 Nasal Pillows mask. The team helped him try it on, showed him how to optimally place it, and got him the right size. An appreciative Fred left happily and later sent us an email thanking the team for their assistance. Given how well our first interaction went, we’re confident that Fred will feel comfortable letting us help him with everything CPAP going forward.
We hope that we can have similarly positive interactions with a number of other local customers. We know that CPAP therapy can be intimidating, especially at first. We have experience talking to new patients, who are not only worried about finding the right product, but also finding the best option for their budget. We can help you work through any initial fears, and we’ll never push a customer to buy anything.
With all of that in mind, we hope to see you in our office! We’re located at 17251 NE 67th Court in Redmond, WA, near the Whole Foods just off of Redmond Way.
