:O You're selling the vacuum that always gets half a bin full every day!
Lol jk, hope it sells though ;)

It looks great! Ours is only 7 months old and looks well used (we use it as  our main vacuum- the DC41 Mk2). When did you purchase it? It's probably about 6 months older than the date of purchase
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.

Fair enough lol, it may not be as old if bought from Dyson directly, we got ours in February 2016 and I have no idea whether or not it's from 2015 or 2016

Nah my DC41 Mk2's better lol (longer cable etc) but I really want a brand new DC75 big ball and a new iPhone...

Tell you what.. Polish the bin (either spray hairspray evenly in the bin and let it dry, or just WD40 is lightly and then hand buff with a microfibre cloth and the bin will look newish.

As for the rest of the vacuum just use whatever polish makes the plastic shiny and  put the tools in front of the vacuu to show the customer the extras they will receive and make the title like "Dyson DC40 Multi Floor + Tools+ X year guarantee - VERY clean" and make sure you take a lot of pics, including underneath as customers like to see how worn the bristles are if it's a used vacuum and how clean everything is basically. I take my pics outside for the best lighting and that's how I make the pics eye catching ;)

Which is what I do on eBay  :icon_nod:

22 insured and tracked postage.

 :o

parcel2go.com is your friend. Use a proper courier like DPD or UPS via them and forget the insurance. :tiphat:

I don't use Parcel2Go anymore after the collections kept failing. I use MyParcelDelivery now and all seems well!

Also, I get insurance mainly for me because I kept getting people saying the items hadn't been delivered but then the courier company says they had been... But then the buyer files a report with PayPal and they take my money. Most of the time the courier does provide evidence and I got my money back, but 2 or 3 times I haven't. So I like to have the insurance just in case when it's a large amount.

Having said that, if I was selling to somebody with a well known presents on here I'd be happy to send it without.

Haha, this guy was funny he couldn't pick it up fast enough... His other Dyson probably died and his house was probably fully of dust so he thought he'd get another one quick!

I told him to buy a Sebo, or better still a Kirby but he just threw cash at me and ran off...
