I would try EBay or sometimes there is a local Buy and Sell site.

Good Luck

Depending on how used it is, you can also contact Supplier #2 in the supplier's list.

Just keep in mind that selling or buying a CPAP machine without a prescription is against US laws.

Forgot about that US Law...Sorry

Just checked Canadian laws and the same thing applies.

They are sold on Craigslist and local papers all the time. They are assuming the feds have better things to do than hunt down illegal CPAP sales and exchanges.

Don't try EBay as they will remove listing and give you a warning.

Yes, I have seen CPAP/BiPaps, etc on Craigslist also. Correctly noted..don't try eBay.
Yesterday is history; Tomorrow is a mystery; Today is a gift; Thats why its called "The Present".

On a related note: Is there anywhere you can donate an old CPAP/BiPAP?
#9
Supplier #2 and the national sleep organization. Never can remember their name. Both take donations of equipment to give to folks.

Another place is your local sleep apnea group. They may know of someone who needs one.

Many sleep labs will also take donated CPAPs to give out to low income patients.

Just an additional thought, however.... It might be prudent for you to keep at least one working old CPAP machine to use if/when your current machine has problems. Going a few nights without CPAP while waiting for repairs or a new purchase can be rough. Always good to keep a spare on hand, if needed.
