Look I know we've gone off topic here, and I'll probably get told off again
Kirby are based in Liverpool, but have offices all over, the machine at the moment, the newest one is, the sentria, and you can do so much with these, and they dont weigh too much eother, so theyre not to bad. they break down to a hand held unit for cleaning beds etc, and they allso blow inflatables up for you. so yes it does the car!
Here's the link for the uk:http://www.kirby.com/Portals/UK/units.html
WARNING: they only do home visits, there isn't a shop you go to to buy them, and they do come with a bit of "hard Sell".
DO NOT CALL THEM unless you are seripously cinsidering it!!!
They are expensive
, but you do get deals from them, as part of their sell. the newest one i am paying Â£1100 for, so I do mean expensive. but that's with a part ex included
I got my first one in 1990, and haven't looked back since, I just upgrade every 7 or 8 yrs, and part ex my old one back in to them, though they let you keep it. This year I finnally managed to persuade them to take the original away
that one was too heavy for me to use, but the sentria is really light, and a dream to use.
DO ask around and see if anyone has an old Heritage or you may be lucky and some one will give you an Ultimate, if you get an ultimate, then dont think too much about part exing it, unless your shoulders sublux, as there not much difference in weight, but the drive on the sentria is better. just call them up and go on the service plan,@Â£5 a month, I am on another deal for that.
You also get as basic, a rotating brush for the tube, whic is really powerfull like a tornado, and the carpet cleaner, and a thing to do paint spraying with, but I have never used that. and loads of other attachments, half of which I never use. Including one for wood floors.
Extra, but worthit, is the massage unit, which also doubles as a sander.
JUST BE AWARE OF THE EXPENSE OF THIS PLEASE. DO NOT CALL FOR A HOME VISIT, UNLESS YOU ARE SERIOUS AS THEY DO HARD SELL
Hope that helps
