Kirby sales worth?
« on: July 29, 2018, 10:37:54 PM »
Hello all my friends!
So about a year ago now I aquired two Kirbys, a G7 and a G5. Im reconditioning and keeping my G5 plus my shampoo doo-dars, but the G7 will however be sold on.
Now what im trying to work out is how much, and how best to sell it.
Its in need of a fair few bits which is why I ask, bag, gearbox, belts and the main handle rear to name a few. Its becoming the point where im wondering, will it ever be worth spending all the money, time and effort in refurbishing it to sell on, or am I just better breaking it for parts and selling them rather than the whole machine. The latter im thinking is best profit wise and easier.


***A few mins passes while I scan eBay and total up***
Okay so having done a bit of research, its a no brainer to break for spares! Coming to a grand total of a whooping 112.08 just to get it running again, I think I shall pass on that.

With that in mind keep an eye out on the member sell area of the forum for a post up about it incase you need any bits and bobs for your kirby.

Cheers folks!

Last few Kirbys we have had have done very small amounts on eBay.

Ive got a G4 in excellent order going cheap if anyone wants it.

Yeah as I say, its going to cost more to get it in working order then it will make, since been stripped down for parts ready to list on ebay once I have some time.
