A few hints and tips to help make your sale go without a hitch...
PREPARING YOUR ITEM READY FOR SALE
The last thing that your prospective buyers want to see is a dirty pram that's coated in baby food. As usual, presentation is imperative so please make sure that you give your pram a good clean before the day of the event. Hand wash removable fabrics, clean any dirty marks with soapy water and vacuum the pram, paying attention to inner corners.
If your pram has inflatable tyres, make sure that they are fully inflated.
Refer to the manufacturers instructions for the correct PSI tyre pressure, this tells you how much you need to inflate your tyres. Be careful that you do not over-inflate and pop the inner tube and please don't use a service statiton pump my partner did this to ours! We recommend using bicycle pumps or foot controlled airbed pumps!
Whilst cleaning your pram, if you notice that there is something missing or damaged contact the manufacturer. Most spare parts are reasonably priced and restoring the pram to it's original state will help with the sale.
It will help with the sale if you can present the manufacturers instructions for your pram. If you have misplaced them you should be able to download a copy from the manufacturers website.
If your pram/pushchair came with accessories such as rain and wind covers, footmuffs, parasols, ride-on-boards, seat liners, or changing/travel bags etc. try to locate these items before the day of the sale.
Selling your item face-to-face provides the ideal opportunity for you to demonstrate your product in full working order including how the accessories fit and how it folds/unfolds. If you are rusty, practice doing this before the day of the event.
