FOR SALE - Garrett Ace 250

Post by philm1981 » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:01 pm

Hi All

I'm looking to sell my Ace 250. Love the hobby but with two small children and long work hours I'm just not finding the time to get out and about.

What's a reasonable price to ask? It's been used but still looks brand new all cleaned up and still have the box. I don't want to use eBay due to bad experiences in the past. It's a great bit of kit and I've found some real good coins at depths up to 12 inches. Seen they are retailing around £200 so would asking £100 sound reasonable?

Cheers in advance.

Phil.

Things are worth what people are willing to pay

Strange thing is I have seen new £215 free postage

And second hand go for £180 plus £12 postage

I normally expect none premium items second hand to be around half price

Obviously if its mint or warranty left to run I would pay more.

I would have thought £150 would be fair

Hi Phil

I agree with Koala - if it's in mint condition I would imagine there are many would-be newbies who'd be more than happy to pay £150 rather than risk £200+ on a hobby they might not take to.

Hi

I think I satisfy the criteria. I will post in the correct section tomorrow with pictures. It won't be posted on eBay as I don't like that site.

Hi All.
There is nothing wrong with machine at all. Just no longer have the time to get out with work and a young family. I'm looking for as close to £175 for the machine which comes with its original box. Sadly the headset is missing. I'm based in Bradford on Avon Wiltshire.
