Fair price for a used nursing chair

(10 Posts)

I have just received an offer of £55 for my nursing chair. I have no idea if this is fair. Should I accept it? I could really do with the money, but then again I always would love to have some more. But if this is the going rate, I'd just accept it and make another mum happy.

Here is the listing: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120739830650&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT#ht_500wt_1156

Up to you to be honest - you could always counter offer £65 and see if they come back at £60?

Have you looked at other completed items for sold prices

We bought ours for £40ish off ebay and sold for the same about 4 years later.

I did say £65, but she said she wouldn't go any higher. I have three watchers if this helps. Just wondering if I should just wait a little longer. But then again, are five quid or so worth it?

Oooh, and I have never seen the completed listings feature. Awesome!

I bought a second hand Dutalier chair with footstool for about £80 3 years ago and thought that was a pretty good price.

Yours looks lovely, what make is it? I only really wanted a Dutalier for the build quality as had read some dodgy reviews of others.

Ok, looking at the completed listing they are selling for around £70, so I will hold out a little longer. Thanks x

It's the one that sells for over £300 at mothercare, but I got it as a bargain for £120 at kiddicare. The thing is, I don't really want to sell it as I loved it, but I haven't got space anymore so I am hoping for a little more so I can spoil my son with the extra.

I think if the brake is broken you should expect a lower offer.

Mine doesnt even have a brake! But if there's a broken part people will want to haggle, generally.

I have just continued scrolling down and some go for much less. I think I will just accept. Just spoken to DH about it and I suppose we have to accept less. Not worth it for a few quid, is it? Just need the money now.
