What does everyone class are refurbish item for sale? I'm getting my tin hat ready but who ever thinks that cleaning = refurbishing they need some help,
personally cleaning = servicing for me
electrical items should be offered with 6-12 months warranty, unless you can guaranty that the motors will work that time then you might is well replace them,
filters replaced, any damage parts replaced now all this comes at cost so you should be asking top price for the item you want to sell but then you asking someone to pay high price for technically used item and getting sale will be difficult.
I was looking on ebay for a while now and some definition/meaning in there terms are absolutely shocking,
From ebay listing item as refurbished On cylinder models the cable recoil mechanism will in most cases be the original and will be checked to be working. As with all used recoil mechanisms the cable will almost certainly require a helping hand as it is taken in to the machine. This is down to a combination of the spring mechanism slightly losing its effectiveness and the cable adopting over time its own "shape" which slows the mechanism down.
I had this once, some local gobmouth bought a £5 dc04 from a table top sale, then decided to comment on one I had up for £60. (I moaned about it here at the time). Luckily, my reputation (and friends and family...) came to my aid and justified why my £55 04 was worth it over a £5 04. The lady declined my offer of a free service, dont know why... (would have done it just to prove a point)
