If you know what models you want them for, I can get them in next day gen or non gen.

belts are a buck a piece here, the one belt fits all models. i have a shed full of kirby parts for sale. sick of the damned things. :'(
only keep the cords, switches, motors, bags and tech drive units. rest goes to the scrap man.

I never touched a Kirby till like 2 months ago and I'm already sick of them! They work well but that's about it
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.

I have a kirby man coming to do the work and supply belts and change the motor bushes for an offer price of 29.50 each instead of 49.50 and that includes the machines being polished up to new.
 But they said that the price of three belts are 15.00 and six bags were 39.99 so not all that interested in doing them as a norm but as a one off then its nice to see something abit different.

You are completely nuts.
Changing a belt is like wiping your arse, Would you pay somebody to do that? Saying that I'd have to charge more than that to wipe somebody's arse... Blimey!

I never touched a Kirby till like 2 months ago and I'm already sick of them! They work well but that's about it

And you are just addicted to plastic like most Japanese are.

Nope. I like Dysons because they are plastic AND metal ;) I think the DC41 needs a metal rod in the chassis

Mental note never let a kirby rep in your home or shop as they get the hump when you say no i dont need or want the new 2995.95 machine can you please do the job your here to do.Then they said well this needs replacing its only 175.00 and so does this one.
 The words well thats not happening so leave  >:( came out of my mouth to which they said well we will see what we can do then within two minutes the parts fixed. so no need for the 175.00 part just needed reconnecting together.
 If this is the world kirby live in then no wonder they are few and far between in my area.

NEVER let any kirby person through your door.
Had to do a stripdown and rebuild of a friends non working machine that had just come back from their "rebuild" plan. It was atrocious.

I told you it was a bad idea, if you want something doing do it yourself. That's my philosophy.
