Refurbished Fantom Fury Offer

fantomtechguy's profile picture
Hello,

My name is FantomTechGuy. I am a professional Fantom Vacuum Refurbisher. If you want me to, I can put you down on my waiting list. I get Fantom's all of the time and I get a lot of Fury's. I can let you know if I get one. I charge $150+ for Fantom Vacuums that have been refurbished. And they also get packaged really well to ensure perfect transportation. If you would like to be on my waiting list, let me know. In the meantime, here's a list of my refurbishing process. Thank you.

1. Test Unit

2. Determine what needs fixed/cleaned

3. Strip it down to the motor

4. check for any blockages/broken parts

5. deep clean all parts

6. preform tests on the motor for performance and or troubleshooting (If need be, re-coil the motor with appropriate gauge wire)

7. deep clean the motor/re-oil/test

8. reassemble/test

(fix anything if need be)

Yeah

I will think about it, the shipping is what will cost the most. I will still go through my full refurbishing process and make it look mint.

I did have a few Furys

But somebody had just told me that they were interested. What FantomTechGuy is trying to say is that shipping is always going to be expensive for pretty much any vacuum. It is hard to ship large boxes cheap. Usually costs me like $40 to ship a vacuum via FedEx.

Good luck finding one then at the price you want to pay! You would be better off scouting the thrift stores on a weekly basis , Craigslist or even the new Facebook marketplace. Fantoms have a pretty good resale on eBay and for the price you want to pay that most likely wouldn't cover shipping. As nicktechtalk just stated it usually will normally run about $40 a machine. I just shipped out a sanitaire and that was $44 and a Regina housekeeper will be roughly $60 due to box size and weight, not that a housekeeper weighs much but then again consider the packing too which adds weight.

I agree.

Mike is right, check thrift stores on a regular basis. I rarely find vacuums in my area, but on one of my daily salvation army visits, I found a MINT condition Thunder for $10! Anything is possible with the right dedication!

I just bought this, early 90s, Dyson DC01. This, along with postage cost me 59, not bad for a very early cersion of the DC01 as well!
