Hi all, not posted in a while but am considering selling my R58 mk2. 

 

I can't seem to post in the valuations section for some reason,  so apologies for this being in the wrong place. 

I can take pics soon but assume good condition (it is), run on volvic since I've owned it and third wave espresso sachets more recently

Only issue is I have lost the detachable pid for it. It wasn't working anyway but for clarity I want to mention it. A replacement can be bought for around £100 so I'm factoring that in to the potential sale price. 

 

Any thoughts on what it might be worth? 

 

Many thanks

You are not able to post in valuations because of an "active" rule. The forum owner made that area available to active members, those who have posted 5 or more times in 29 days.

Without the above, difficult to know.....anything from £300, rising to possibly £500 depending on age, usage, service history and condition. This takes into account the controller and cable are missing.

I've owned it for 3 years I think and bought it from a member on here whi had it from new. 

 

He had it serviced just before I bought it and I had it done about 18 months ago (have both invoices so can check details if needed). 

I've only used volvic water in it and more recently zero water and third wave espresso sachets.

It's been used for 2-4 coffees a day since I've had it. 

Some age related marks as you'd expect but no damage other than the bottom foot of the R on the steam dial is chipped. I can photograph this if needed.

@GingerBen My Engineering Review of the Rocket R58 was Sep 2011, can't find the full review at the moment, but it Launched a few months after the engineering review. On that basis, the assumption has to be made that the machine is circa Nov 2011, or 9.5 years old. Unless the condition is exceptional for year...probably around £400, assuming everything else works perfectly....apart from the PID being lost.

Thanks, that feels low tbh. I'm at work currently but will get the details out and see if I can get the MY and other details. Cheers

You can always advertise at a higher price with offers....I could well be wrong.

For a machine off that age, you are looking at the £600 mark for something in mint condition. 

£500 seems about right, but I’d expect the PID control box to come with it.
