Question Need advice on price for used equipment

I'm going to meet with someone today about an offer on some of his equipment. What is a reasonable price per pound for used bumper plates (solid v. metal) and regular olympic plates? Also, what is a reasonable price for a used weight tree, dumbells, olympic bar? Thanks in advance for the advice. I was able to buy a power rack, bar, bench, 300 lbs of weight for $200 a few weeks ago and just need a little more gear to complete the garage.

Re: Need advice on price for used equipment

All the used iron I've picked up at about $0.29-$0.35/lb. I think Play it Again is up to $0.40 used and $0.60 or $0.70 new. New weight I have seen as low as $0.57. Bumpers just a thought but less than $1 would be great, don't be surprized if it's more like $1.50-$1.75 used, full set of bumpers shipped is about $500-550 new. Same deal for the dumbells. I have paid $30 for a cheap oly bar, and $100 for a nice one. Try to get the tree thrown in the deal, what's anybody going to do with a left over tree, believe me, I have one.

Re: Need advice on price for used equipment

If you don't find a good deal on used bumpers, hit up Jason Hughes at Wright Rubber 1(800)239-5194. He quoted me a set of 45s, 35s, 25s, and 10s, shipped to the Chicago area for $355. That works out to $1.55/lb., which is the cheapest I've found, and I've been looking for a long time. I'm buying a set ater Christmas. Might be a little more for you in California, but probably still the best you'll do for new bumpers. Hope this helps.
