    Possible sale of a mobility scooter??

    A lady i work with is having to clear her parents house and has a mobility scooter she needs to sell. Is it the kind of thing that anybody on here would be interested in if i/she listed in the for sale forum, or does anybody know of anywhere that might give her a decent price for it. She's considering listing it on ebay but has no idea regarding doing so, so would prefer ebay as a last resort.
    It's a Strider MD4 plus mobility scooter with a range of 21 miles and a max speed of 8MPH. Unfortunately it's only been used for less than a week so is pretty much as new and cost £2550. She was looking at £1000 ono?? Photos etc can be taken a supplied if anyone is intrested and moved to the appropriate forum. It'd be collection only from the Staffordshire/Cheshire (Kidsgrove/Alsager) area i believe

    I don't know the cost of them.

    It wouldn't hurt to put it on here,make sure you take cash on collection only too.

    try advertising it in the local papers you mite get some luck there

    My mom paid just over £2000 for hers, just over 12 months ago.

    Seem to fetch around the £200 mark on ebay for that one.

    Think it was the best super dooper one at the time she bought it which is why it cost so much :? I've told her i don't mind helping listing it here or elsewhere but i don't want to waste her time, she's got an awful lot going on
    She tried the local paper but got messed around by a couple of people and i think it put her off a bit :oops:

    i know some of them are mega expensive, it's not one of these cheapo versions that seem plentyful atm. I couldn't see that one on ebay. I could see strider ones, but not that model?

    I've just looked and you can buy them new on-line for £1390. Most people are selling them in Freeads for about £600.

    My moms is a Celebrity Pride X and you can buy them new from £890 now. BUT I wouldn't recommend one, its had more repairs in the last 12 months than I've had hot dinners!

    new price is only £950 i should know i have worn out 5

    Thanks guys. At least i can tell her now that she shouldn't expect to get as much for it so she can offer it at a more realistic price.
    Has anybody that's found them online cheaper please post a link to it so i can show her where they can be gotten and how much for. I had a look earlier but was struggling to find that model listed anywhere :thumbsup:

    Thats the thing with these things.... the recommended retail price is always way off what you can buy them for. And the secondhand value plummets rapidly. Saying its only been used for a week is actually a negative (unless its a week old of course!) as the battery needs to be charged daily and deteriorates if its not.
