Search for second hand wood burning stoves
Recently I decided to make some home improvements to my flat and one of my key wants was a stove, I started searching for second hand wood burning stoves on the internet. I have wanted one for ages my parents have always had wood burners and when I bought the place I always had it in my mind to get one for myself although with everything else that needed doing and the furniture I needed to buy it was down the list of priorities due to budget.
A friend suggested looking at second hand wood burning stoves
I would have probably waited a bit but then a friend of mine who I mentioned wood burners to suggested instead of buying new had I thought about second hand wood burning stoves. I have to admit I had not and the more he mentioned the more appealing the idea was to me. My parents had a woodburner that was over twenty years old and although they have replaced a few worn out bits the thing is still working as well as the day they bought it so I was not worried that a used one may break or anything.
Having been around them for years I can also do the minor repairs like glass and rope myself and so if the second hand wood burning stoves I looked at were a little damaged that was not a major problem for me as long as the price reflected it.
What I was sure about is to go for a good one as it was going to have to last and I know from experience if you buy cheap wood burners then thats exactly what you get.
Going online for second hand wood burning stoves
My search started online and I looked at some specialist websites but in the end I found eBay to be the best for choice and price. I wanted a contemporary one and ideally a Scandinavian brand as my logic tells me the colder the country the better the wood burners. If you are subject to super cold weather then a top quality woodburner is probably very high on your list of must haves for the winter months.
It did not take long to find numerous second hand wood burning stoves on eBay and I had to narrow my search to specifics to trawl through them. I needed an 8kw stove and I didn’t want a multi fuel one so thats what I started to search on. It took a few weeks to find the one for me and once I had found it I bid and won it within a few days.
I have booked in an appointment for someone to come and price up fitting it. I was going to do this myself but it will cost nearly as much to get it signed off if I do anyway so will leave it to a specialist. I would recommend looking at second hand wood burning stoves if you are win the market as there are plenty of bargains out there.
