    Looking for gear to outfit a trailer. Found a guy that has 10 - 3/8x20 chains and binders, 3 piece lumber tarp with 6' drops, and a pile of 4" straps, coil racks, dunnage, edge protectors, tarp straps, etc. Asking $1500. I think it's a little high, as I looked up new price and it was around $2k. I'm thinking in the $900 range. What is a used outfit worth these days?

    If the chains are g70 and still got some gold anodizing, the binders are 5400# ratchet or better and the tarps are in good shape then 13 to 1500 is close.
    900 is good if the chains have the anodizing worn/weathered off, the binders are lever type and the tarps need minor repairs. The 4" straps are worth 5 to 7 bucks in good shape (new are 10 to 15 in bulk). The corners, tarp straps,coil bunks and other assorted stuff can be about 100 to 150 used depending in amounts.

    Just remember when making an offer its tough to lower it, easy to raise it. But would really have to see it before going him a firm price. Could be great deal, or could be not worth going after.
    blairandgretchen Thanks this.
