Got a DC01 Absolute+ to do next, but want a new cleaner head and hepa filter for it before I start...

I think we have some of those cleaner heads.  ;D

Im gonna ask you when I can afford to buy one! Mine has a blank head on it,  and it just doesnt look right without the logo and absolute+ bit on!

Could send you back a mint (on the face of it anyway)  non faded head with no writing on if you wanted?

Oooh,  you tapping up non dyson reps now too? Almost tempted to say hold onto a few,  if any 1970s/80s Hoover (or lux)  stationary came along on ebay it would go for a bit...

See if they have any heritage machines they want gone,  ill road trip up and help you offload them!

We get tapped up by reps from all brands and various would-be suppliers. Most get kicked out unless bearing gifts.  :chuckle:

The Dyson reps are more elusive. They only approach us by proxy through our existing suppliers to see if we have changed our mind about being Dyson agents. The answer is always the same: After we have moved premises, and have more space, and if your deals improve, and we are exempt from the after-market restrictions that most "agents" are saddled with, we'll look at it. If it works for us.

Meanwhile, we have some Hoover pens and Electrolux desk pads.  ;D

If any Dyson reps are reading, can we have some rubber backed Dyson branded floor mats please? And some general point of sale material?

Desk pads are great, I have one on my desk, use it regularly!

I wish Dyson would stop wasting so much money on failed advertising campaigns! My place does (to cimplify it) leaflet distributions. Dyson are a client of ours, and will book something in, confirm it, then move the date, paying loads of cancellation charges, then the cost for rebooking it... then to cancel it again and push it back etc.

Gets annoying after a while, and must waste loads of money! Seems to be for the DC35 Digital Slim, maybe they have had issues... They wont let me speak to the client, possibly afraid I'll mention my hobby, and bad mouth modern ones which I occasionally do (colleague was dead chuffed when she bought a DC24 a few years ago, and hated me reeling off ways it could and would break. Was all polite when she asked me how to reset the brushbar last year though... I swapped her a pre motor filter too I think before
