New adition to collection
« on: February 07, 2016, 03:59:40 PM »

Never seen one before, junior compact  25 got that look from Mrs Madrat  :underchair:.  Its in Buckley at the moment, just need to arrange the courier with the seller, don't suppose anyone lives in Buckley and fancies pick up and post?

Yes I get "That look" when I buy a new Radio or car, not so much Vacuum's because I usually make money selling them on lol.

That one looks old dude!

Plenty of bubblewrap, a nice thick box and next day delivery. Please no crisp boxes!

Never, never, never use yodel! A bunch of lying crooks. They lost me close to 600 and am now taking them to court.

APC are pretty good. Reliable for collecting and for me, their local depot is 4 miles away and they will let me drop off. Delivery is nearly always next working day.

DPD are ok too. I like the way you can track the driver on his round. Usually my slot is 4.30 to 5.30. Glyn is on his way home then.

I sent a car to Jersey with APC and it was collected at 11:30 and it was on the buyers doorstep at 07:00 the next day. Cost 81 mind you but the service is top notch!  :thumbsup:

Sorry for the late reply, but that's an epic Hoover! Very cool looking, never seen one of the hard bag ones before, looks very interesting and rare :O
Congrats mate! ;D Would love to see lots of pics when you get it :thumbsup:
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.
