Maybe just put it on ebay with a minimum price that you wouldn't want to get less than for and see how it goes. If it doesn't sell the first time then try it again for a bit less? I'd put it on for a week listing to make sure as many people see it as poss.
Well i bought one from a car boot for £8 but i've no idea how old it was...Recently a seller on eBay was selling brand new ones for £69 and £59 depending on the model, there were 3 models overall...Think they were being sold for around 60% of the original value...I think if i was buying second hand now i'd not want to pay much more than £25-30...They appear to be a good little workhorse that seem to last for many years but then i guess it depends how much they've been used...I love them as i still have my two, the original one and the brand new one i bought for £69 as i prefered the blue color.
Ask her if she'll take an offer...If it's been for sale a while she might...£40 is a lot unless it's barely been used...If it has lots of accesories such as footmuffs and rain cover it might be more worth £40 as Citisports don't come with raincovers as standard...You do have to buy seperately.
Is it this one? Then maybe £40 isn't so over the top if it has the raincover and was harldy used.
I'd say ask if you can go and have a look, then make your decision. It might be near perfect and you're happy to pay £40, or it might be a bit worn and you could offer £25 or £30. If you do that go with 20's, 10's and 5's so you can pay the right money. You wouldn't want to agree on £25 and then find she has no change for a tenner!
