Usually what a vacuum store,A ACTAUL vacuum store, would do is you would bring in your old machine,And they would take some cash off of your new one.Example:
At my local oreck store,A person brings in there old vacuum,And they get 100$ off there new oreck.The trade in then either is repaired,Dumped,Or i pick it up :)

DTD vacuum dealers such as Kirby,Rainbow,filter Queen,TriStar,and others would take trade ins,too-and again knock a few dollars off the price of the new machine-and if the old machine is the same brand as the new one-often the new vacuum was sold to you at half price!Nowadays many vacuum stores and DTD dealers are no longer taking trade ins-they don't want to bother cleaning them up,fixing them,and trying to resell the old machines.Get freindly with your local vac dealers-walk in store or DTD--they will let you go thru their trade in piles!Esp if you tell them what machines you are looking for.Got many of my specimens that way.

In D2D sales

getting the trade in out of the house significantly lowers the cancellation rate. Since D2D sales are subject to the three day recision, removing the "old" cleaner that "didn't work" eliminates the likelihood of the buyer going back to their "old" cleaner and cancelling the purchase. It also helps to justify any price reduction to the buyer. When I worked for a D2D company, we used to trade in all sorts of crazy stuff, and I still have some of it today. Cars, boats, lawnmowers, vacuums, art, guns, season game tickets, crafts, atvs, and labor are just some of the things we would get folks to trade in. It was very unlikely for a buyer to cancel the sale if they traded something significant in. The tradein game can be a lot of fun for the salesman and the buyer too.

'Kill'(and remove) the old vac

Above is very true as I know a former Kirby dealer from the Tradtion years.They learned to trade in all vacs in a house or when the new Kirby user found the belt change or hose connection to difficult they would go back to the old familiar vac and stop making payments on the Kiby!
