My big tip is ebay. We got our silver cross pram there for £65 and it's perfect. It's spotlessly clean and just as if we had bought it new- except that we got extras from the people who sold it like pram-sheets, a parasol, mosquito/cat net, etc. that they just gave us along with the pram. The downside is going to pick it up, but then you can always hire a man and van combo to do that... it's much cheaper than buying new still!
