What price to sell used equipment?
« on: April 18, 2015, 03:46:18 pm »
A local beek is interested in purchasing some of my used mediums and frames.  I have no idea how to price them.  I'd be grateful for any suggestions or to point me somewhere I can find out for myself.  Thanks.

It would be helpful to know the condition of the boxes and comb.

I sell NEW boxes painted and ready to use for $15.00   and used boxes in good shape for $10.00 each..
   Frames?   1.00 each without foundation. $2.00 ea WITH new foundation..(Wax or plastic) Drawn comb on/in those frames?  Twice their weight in gold.   Bottom board 15 dollars. Inner cover ten dollars, tele cover without metal 15 dollars. With metal 20 dollars...
    I have been yelled at for selling too cheap, but I feel that the price is fair..    FRAMES not withstanding.. they take a LOT of time, and may well be worth buying commercially.

$5-$8 for a deep frame with wax on it in my area.
