Thank you so much MVacs, how can I write you privately in order to arrange shipping? I told my Hoover the good news and he's really happy :)
Yes, we'll make sure its serviceable first, see how much work Beko has to do to it, and if so I'll send you a PM when we've worked out the price, shipping, etc.
Also yes, it won't cost much extra to put any other bits in the same box to Italy. We use DPD to there.
