A non-ergonomic office chair lasts an average of six to eight years. A good ergonomic office chair usually has a longer lifespan. Sometimes your office chair might not yet be a complete write-off, but it does need repairing. If the gas spring is broken, for example, or the upholstery is worn. In that case, getting your chair repaired is a good, sustainable choice.
If you have been using your office chair intensively for more than 8 years, it is important to get it thoroughly checked out for all possible defects. If the cost of repairing the chair turns out to be higher than the chair’s residual value, we advise you to opt for a new or refurbished chair.
