Stroller For Sale

Before we moved, we had a number of people asking us to bring them double strollers on our lift (they paid for the space) because they said they are really expensive here in Israel. We went a little crazy and ended up buying one for when our new baby was to be born - thinking Sammy and Kayla will only be 21 months apart so we will still need a double. We also bought a double stroller to replace our double Jeep stroller to use for then - the bigger kids. That was a mistake for sure - I really miss our small double jeep stroller!!
Anyway, Sammy loves to walk and hardly even uses his stroller anymore to get to daycare. So I'm thinking, I really don't still need 2 double strollers! And sadly, we don't even have a normal single stroller. Just the Snap N Go and an umbrella stroller.
Soooooooooooooooo, I want to sell the unused double stroller. But need some advice, how much should I sell it for in Israel? I haven't shopped around for doubles here and don't think they even sell this model here.

It is a Kolcraft Contours Options Tandem stroller. Brand new in box (box is a little broken.

So, how much should I sell it for? And where should I advertise it? And does anyone reading this want to buy it??

In addition, does anyone know anything or have experience with a Zooper stroller? They seem really small and easy to push. Where is the best place to buy?

If it's brand new, you should sell for as much as you paid for it or maybe a small percentage less if you're not getting any takers. I'm sure people will be ecstatic about it since it would probably cost almost double that if someone wanted to buy it here.

I checked out the Zooper when shopping for our stroller. We went with a different stroller instead, but the Zooper was lightweight and simple. You can get it at Shilav or Ravkat. Personally, I like Shilav better. Ravkat has a big selection of American brands, though. Shilav really only sells European brands.

There's Janglo and the Petach Tikvah Yahoo group you can advertise on.

Just to give you an idea, here's a site:

At the bottom, they have a City Elite Double, priced at 4500NIS. If you Google it, the highest asking price is $650... roughly 2600NIS.

If you Google the Kolcraft you have, it's listed anywhere between $200 and $300. I think you can ask for 2000NIS and easily get people offering 1500NIS.

I think this stroller is closest to the Gemello MiaModa listed at the top for 1835 NIS. Closer than it is to the jogger.

I was thinking between 1500 - 2000 NIS (and perhaps a discount for friends).

I mentioned it to show the mark-up in price :)
