I remember seeing the UI selling german made hard flooring casters for $80.

Btw u can claim warranty foc why u buy the $50 castors though??

Just wondering actually if really shopee buy one pai liao can take picture send to usa herman Miller ask for replacement item and ship back ? Worldwide warranty isit??
I was using the carpet castor and I would like to try out the hard floor castors. Hence bought oem castors from Amazon.

XTRA do not allow change from carpet to hard floor castors for warranty claims.

herman miller hard flooring caster is $50
From XTRA? Or HM themselves?

If it is the latter, it is in USD and have to factor in shipping cost if they ship worldwide.

I am not following HM chairs closely but you mentioned made in China. Does it state on the warranty sticker?

U also buy from shopee ma tio bo. Hahaha
I mean if Xtra is priced like shopee, so then we can compare PRC AD vs USA PI.

Or if Xtra is made in USA. Then the price diff is AD vs PI.

For now i think no fight.
Didn't know now Xtra water so deep....

I informed them the foam have worn-out and send them the photo. Xtra is quite responsive on warranty claims.
I'm claiming my back mesh. Mine is around 11 years old too. I'll try to see if can add order a not.

I beg to differ...

I bought my classic aeron chair for 11 years at 1.6K fully-loaded from Xtra. During these 11 years, I have changed my castors in the 7 year, change my seat foam in the 9 year and 2 weeks ago file another replacement for the posture fit.

All no questions asked if you have valid warranty.

It is worth it to get such an expensive chair from the reliable source especially for 12 yr of warranty.
Do they come down change for u? Good service
