How much discount for second hand
6

headstone · 06/06/2018 18:55

I’m looking for a second pushchair for my soon to be born. I want something mainly for walking in the woods next summer. So something like the nipper 360 or similar. As it will be a second pushchair for a baby who will be 6 months I’m not bothered about it being new and would prefer to save the coppers as I’ve already bought a cheap travel system.
However all the second hand nippers seem really pricey.I saw one advertised near me for almost £200 when I could buy a new one from amazon for £240.
What kind of discount would you accept for. good quality second hand pushchair?

I'd expect at least 50% discount... But maybe that's just me!

Aw 1234 I was expecting a similar discount otherwise I would just buy new and avoid the hassle! Everyone seems to pick up these amazing second hand bargains though. I don’t know where I’m going wrong.

Nippers hold their price well. There is an Out N About Facebook group where you might find one, but your best bet is to trawl local sites where people don't realise the value of what they're selling.

I’m really surprised how much people are prepared to pay for a secondhand one. If I can only get a £50 discount I would just buy new and then sell it on afterwards.

Have you looked at something similar to the nipper but not as expensive ? I noticed Hauck have brought out a 3 wheel runner recently and the Mothercare Extreme is still on selling sites second hand sometimes

I agree 20% isn’t much discount for second hand, but buying second hand and selling on as second hand afterwards can sometimes end up making you a profit!
