Office Chairs: A good ergonomic office chair will typically fall within the price range of $250 to $1,000 depending upon how adjustable you want the chair to be. Having a chair with multiple adjustments is essential, particularly if you will be sharing the chair with other people, to ensure it fits to your body. A chair that is too big or too small for its user can lead to serious health issues including chronic back and neck pain. Owning a chair that fits the user correctly is especially crucial if you or your employees spend multiple consecutive hours a day sitting on an office chair. Most chairs within this price range, especially those on the higher end, will last 5 years or more dependent on how well you take care of the chair. Manufacturers of quality product will also warrant their chairs to last up to a lifetime, meaning if any part on your chair breaks, (mechanism, casters, adjustment levers, etc.) they will replace it free of cost up to the time specified in their warranty. A warranty usually says a lot about a manufacturer, so if you find one with a longer warranty this is a good guarantee that your chair investment will be worthwhile, as it shows the manufacturer is that confident with their product.
Fleshing this out further, let's say a company advertises free shipping on their church chairs once a certain quantity of chairs are purchased to select geographical regions of the country. One of their chairs they sell for essentially $33.00 each, once there are a minimum of 100 chairs, purchased as a part of the order and also include "free shipping" for those chairs to about 20 different states. In this case they may purchase those chairs from a Chinese factory for about $13.00 a chair. They bring them to this country, warehouse them, sell them, and then deliver them. Their costs for all of these items is perhaps another $13.00 or so per chair. They then sell them for $33.00 a chair and all of their costs are covered and they make a nice profit. All through the process though they continue to state they are offering "free shipping".
The more practical factors that one should consider include features like lumbar adjustment, height adjustment, and the spring tension at which the chair can recline. Good chairs should also come with a latch that prevents the chair from reclining at all. The top quality chairs will provide adjustable armrests. The armrests should be able to be adjusted in and out from the center of the chair, as well as up and down, and even the length of the armrests should be adjustable.
