dc01 collection worth
« on: October 09, 2017, 11:14:51 PM »
Just interested on estimate - how much my DC01 collection is worth, Contains:

1998 Standard
Number 32,950 Antartica Solo
And will be picking up soon a DC01 De Stijl which handily was around the corner from me (Its that one on Instagram Tayyab if your reading - turns out he goes to my school too lol!) Said to be in great condition and fully working,

Should note my antartica solo is completely undamaged apart from a small crack near where the handle locks in - both wheel guards etc

It's worth whatever someone will pay sadly/or happily

All depends on who wants it at the time. I have the full set of DC01, but when I sell them, the standard, blue and ab+ will just sell as normal dc01's probably, the de stijl and da001 for whatever their worth and hopefully my arctic solo will go for a bit more because of what it is/has all paperwork etc. But it could not sell at 99p start...

Sadly I don't think you should use DC01's as investment portfolio's, their just too common still. Look at how many NIB ones have come out of the woodwork this year!

Ikr, there's a hell of a lot of DC01s still in use, they are pretty much tanks people love them
Even more so DC04s, my driving instructor has one!
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

I just picked out of the Dysons I have collected so far the DC01s since they are the ones I have the most of. Just intrested in how much they could be worth all together. Not planning on selling any of them for a good long while!

To be worth good money they have to be pretty much perfect.

It's impossible to say as scruffy ones are worth a fiver and pretty much perfect ones more like 100+.

Antartica solo has a bit of fading, slight crack in the wand and a small chunk missing on the chassis.
Standard has very very little fading with both wheel guards missing, DC07 wheels and again - a chunck missing from the chassis next to the wand (The worst one)
And the De Stijl has no fading, all complete minus the tools.
