Hi everyone,

I found a promising source of Kirby Parts on the web today.
An ex-Kirby Service Centre, in Manchester, UK.

They sell complete refurbished machines, have a workshop, engineers, deal with all makes/models, spares store full of parts; Cloth Outer Bags for Tradition, Omega, Classic..., kirby Motors, Tools..., even come out to service and polish your machine.

Too good to be true?

They cannot understand why their Website comes up in searches "down south".
Don't want to deal with anyone outside Manchester.
Won't post anything.
Can't tell you whether they have an item or not.
They suggest you go to ELI Distribution for everything.
And cannot get you off the phone fast enough.

I thought these 'business-as-a-hobby' kind of places disappeared years ago. How on earth do they still make money? I guess they sell a new Dyson Turbo Vortex Deluxe to housewives who pop in just to buy a pack of vacuum bags.

Oh well.

They seem like an actual place. Likely they don't want any over the phone business, in person only. Can't say I really blame them, but that's no excuse for being rude. They could literally just say 'sorry we deal in person only.' Not that difficult.
