Used toolbox value

Does anyone know of a good way to approximate a value on used toolboxes?

Theres a guy in my shop retiring aoon and he has a macsimizer 3 bay top and bottom box, mb1900 set i believe.
Brand new from Mac tools is around 20,000

Thanks,
Ben

Your best bet would be to ask your Mac dealer. They sell used boxes all the time that they get on trade in.

Get on Ebay and see what they're asking, take off 20%

I have a MB1900 bottom that was $14000 off the truck, I paid about $7500 brand new. Truck prices are retarded.

I have talked to the mac guy, and he said if i can get the set for 10 or less its a deal, however he told the guy thays retiring to ask 15.

Theres a similar set on ebay for 8500 obo right now.
Showed the guy retiring and he wasnt too pleased, i guess ill see how it goes when the time is closer.

pass on it. The guy is dreaming at that price. It's a buyers market right now and boxes aren't in high demand. Go post this over at the garage journal, and you will get the most accurate number. But that box in this market is 3200 to 3700 if mint.

Also, I would find a used Lista or stanley vidmar modular box before buying mac or snap on. Remember the red tool stations paul jr of OCC had in this shop, that's all lista. This guy has good deals as well
