Refurbished Robot Vacuum Cleaners

By Edited Apr 13, 2014 0 1

Buying a refurbished robot vacuum cleaner is a great way to get hold of a quality cleaner at a bargain price.

The trouble however, is knowing where the best places are to buy them.

You are lucky.

As here I am going to share with you some of the very best places online to maximise your chances of getting hold of a re-manufactured robot vacuum cleaner, as well as some factors you might want to think about before you buy.

I like to think of robotic vacuum cleaners as the new washing machine or dishwasher they don't require human assistance, they work via a computer system that's programmed to realise its own spacial awareness and move around the room, without the need for manual control, to clean the floor.

Saving you the hassle and more importantly time.

Where to Buy Refurbished Robot Cleaners Online?

There are hundreds of websites online selling reconditioned robotic vacuum cleaners, just hit google and check it out, but the provided list below is where you are more likely to hit some luck than others.


The mega online retail site has great pricing on even new models of robotic vacuum cleaners (as well as refurbished models). You will find independent sellers will also list on Amazon, so it's worth it to keep checking them out I just found a deal on the iRobot Roomba 560 Refrubished at a price of $249.99  with warranty compared to its price on amazon new at $339.99. 

The Vacuum Cleaner Factory

This is an awesome website (www.vacuumcleanerfactory.com) that lists hundreds of different types of vacuum cleaners, and a perfect place where you will be likely to find refurbished robotic vacuum cleaner models at a cheap price.

As they sell many varying types of vacuum cleaners like handheld, stick, upright, make sure you simply enter search terms into their search bar at the top such as 'refurbished robotic vacuum cleaners' which then provides you with a long list of different re-made robot vacuuming models.

Just after a quick browse I found the iRoomba 530 Vacuuming Robot model to be more than $100 cheaper on the vacuum cleaner factory than a new model listed on Amazon.

Check the Manufacturer's Website

If you have a particular model in mind for example the Neato XV-11 All Floor Robotic Vacuum System, it might be worth checking out the brands own site 'Neato Robotics' and see if they are selling any refurbished models directly. 


As we all know well eBay sells almost everything imaginable, so make sure you keep checking out eBay for some amazingly cheap deals. Be sure to also check the site 'fatfingers.com' to see if anyone has misspelt words, which results in no one being able to find their product and hence ending up with no bids, until you come along.

Consider This When Buying a Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Below are some things you should consider before you purchase a remodelled robot vacuum cleaner.

Special Features

Do you want remote manual control? The ability to schedule? Self empty?

Consider what you are actually want from the robot cleaner, if all you want it to do is moderately clean the floor, then that's cool but if you want it to be able to also deoderize etc. then it could be worth doing a bit of homework into exactly what you want and don't want.

Power and Performance

How long can it last on a single charge? How powerful is it? Quality and the type of the sensors?

Thinking about the practicalites of the cleaner is important for example you don't really want a cleaner that drives off the edge of a stair way, or requires an 8 hour charge per room.

The Robot Cleaner

The size (width, height, weight)? Does it have the looks? How loud is it?

I just wanted to point out maintenance issues such as whether it requires batteries, or is it self charging? As well as the issue of storage capacity and mobility, it maybe all well having a professional roomba, but if it's too big to store in a cupboard and too heavy to carry down and up stairs, you are probably better off getting a less powerful smaller cleaner.

Above are just a few of the things you should keep in mind, but for a more comprehensive guide check out 'A Beginner's Guide to Buying a Robotic Vacuum Cleaner' for when it comes to buying a refurbished robot vacuum cleaner.
