How much discount for second hand
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?

If I can only get a £50 discount I would just buy new and then sell it on afterwards.
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!

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’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.

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.

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.

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