Default What to sell this item for? (parents, see inside)

Everyone, we have a playset in our backyard that was here whenever we moved into the house we purchased.

Thing is, we don't have kids. I also want the space, because it's beside my shop and I want to expand it with an awning for storage.

Ironically, a lady and her child from the neighborhood stopped by our home today- said they have been eyeing it since the house was up for sale and wants to purchase it.

Thing is...what is it worth? I can't tell how old it is...I am guessing 5-7 years? Wood seems to be in pretty shape although I am sure there is some moisture damage along the bottom braces that can be replaced.

What do you think I should sell it for?

We paid about600 for my daughters. It's a little bigger than that and was new. I'd say 250 but they need to move it.

As for a specific value, I can't really say, as I have no idea what a used set like that is worth. In any event, I'd err on the side of not charging too much if you're going to ask them to do the demo and hauling off of your property.

What if one of them got hurt on your property while taking it apart or hauling it away? That'd be a lot more of a headache than figuring out what to charge for the thing.

That was the first number in my head if they move it.

Where can I find these online?

$200 if they do all the labor, think we paid 400 for one brand new in the box about 5 years ago, ours had 3 swings (ok two swings and a seesaw/swing thing) and a tarp type top

I'd give it to them with the understanding they remove it completely in one day. You don't need the hassle of selling a used wooden play set to a neighbor just for a couple hundred $. As is.

To be honest man, it doesn't look like much...no swings, slides or anything else a kid would play on. So I would say $200 but you may end up giving it away.

The problem with those things is once you build them, they're tough to move unless you take them apart. And then someone has to put it back together.

Hard to see in the photo, but it does have a slide on the far left of picture. Also, that section to the ride is for swings to be added...hooks are there for chains. It's also made of thick wood- not cheap stuff.

Again, I don't want to make a killing of this thing because I really want it gone...but at the same time, I think it is worth *something* maybe?

Who knows, maybe give it away especially if it's to a neighbor I will see often.

Default Re: What to sell this item for? (parents, see inside)

I would give it away...it is for kids and you don't want it. Not saying you are being greedy, but if you don't want it, why not just make someone's day? It will come back to you many fold...

Regardless of what you do, I would make whoever takes it sign some kind of waiver freeing you of any potential liability for taking it apart as well as liability once it is re-assembled at its future site. If you charge for the structure, you may have some implied liability (not a lawyer but worth checking into). You could also have one hell of a bonfire?!

In that case, put it on Craigslist for $250 and see if you get any takers. Can always lower your price later.

Good idea with the liability waiver.


As for the price, I was thinking in the $200-$300 range.

Had the exact same situation when I bought my last house. I just gave mine away to anyone that was willing to move it because I wanted it gone. I wouldn't ask over 100 for it personally, but that's just me.
