CPAP online purchase
Hi, A question for us Aussies here, have you purchased a Cpap/Bipap etc machine online through the places listed here in the supplier list? If so did it go smoothly were there any problems?

The reason I ask is I'm thinking of purchasing a new machine and buying one here in Australia is rather expensive. Was thinking of getting one from America and getting shipped over.

Thanks in advance

Zonk is the one to ask, I bought mine from here the first time, 3 years ago, next time I'll go down the internet track now that I know what I'm doing.

Suppliers #2 and #10 ship to Australia, others do not ship ResMed and Respironcis outside US

RE: CPAP online purchase
HI,
I purchased mine around 3 months ago from 1800Cpap, via their web page,they are based in the US, got the Resmed Airsense 10 Auto with heated hose, all in all, cost me including postage, AU$990, great guarentee, super fast delivery, no problems. Would have cost me around AU$2000 to $2500 in Australia, paid via Credit Card, no problems, no worries. Would definately use them again
Regards
Bob

I purchased a "gently used" Resmed S9 Autoset from Supplier #2 for A$660 delivered to my doorstep in country Victoria several months ago, found them so easy to deal with and can't speak highly enough of their superb service. Machine works great.

Thanks to all that replied Its been helpfull and its cheaper than buying here too

Did look at hiring one but the cheapest I could find was $49 Aust a month with prices going up for better machines. At those prices it wouldn't take long before it would be cheaper to buy!

My hire was $160 a month!! Luckily my purchased machine showed up before I ticked over into the next month.

My hire was $100 a month for mask and CPAP, but I could change them as much as I wanted. It is good for newbies trying to get used to a mask and not having to buy them and not being able to return them. I bought mine after 3 months renting.
