Unfortunately, due to us starting to outgrow our current premises, we need every bit of space we can get, so our museum is being removed in its current form to make space for a bigger packing area.

Some machines have been sold already, many are going to be bagged up and sent to our storage facility.

The rarest like the G-Force and the DC06 will still be here. And our favourite vintage Hoovers will stay too (and two are in a cabinet in our entrance).

But the museum in its current form with public access will not be a thing as of next week.

That's sad yet good at the same time I guess!

Youve got tall ceilings haven't you? Put some shelves up really high and perimeter the shop with them!
Wouldn't want to dust them mind

The DC03 Clear is staying.

I might sell the US Dyson DC17 and DC28. There's a new DC05 I'm thinking of selling and I'm toying with selling the DC11, DC12, DC15 and DC02s. Also a refurbed blue DC01 in its box.

We've no time at all to do much this last year or so its been so busy. So priorities need to change as we rationalise and refocus what we do in order not to have to move again too soon.

That 262 will be staying when it one day lands back.  :whist11:

Everything in the museum is in excellent refurbished condition, indeed. Here it is:


Do you have a 220-240 > 110-120v converter box?

The DC28 has gone already, and a couple of people are sniffing on the DC17 and the DC12.

Just unboxed this absolute beast canít believe how well it looks. Iím even more impressed with it in person it just looks like a dc14 thatís Been improved in every way. All Iíve got to do now Is buy a step-down transformer (canít decide whether to go for the 3kw one for the sake of a tenner) also has the machine had a new hose on it looks brand new?

Thanks for this I canít wait to try it this brushroll looks beastly, I only have Dyson cleaners as well so I reckon itíll pick up some rubbish.

It will have been washed when our chaps went over it.

I'd get the transformer with the correct outlets on. For a tenner more, you're future-proofing yourself to be able to use any other machine you may buy later on.

Glad you like it.

The dc17 is an amazing machine, I've got one too! I'd rate it above my Kirby Sentria 2 for deep down aggressive cleaning! Took it round to my mums new bungalow (with the 110v transformer) and filled the bin 3 times throughout, and it's only a small one! Carpet was transformed! Hope you enjoy it.
