Used Coal Gun Pricing?

Used Coal Gun Pricing?

PostBy: TimW On: Thu Mar 10, 2016 11:10 am

I'm sure any mfr wants to sell a new coal boiler or stove, but is there any measure by which a used boiler price can be set or estimated?

I'm appreciative of any guidance you can offer in this regard. Thanks.

There is inevitably some cannibalizing of new sales due to the availability of used units, but we think it is very minor. New units offer a certain degree of risk reduction with the manufacturer's warranty being in place. There is no warranty coverage for secondary owners. A used Coal Gun that is properly installed as a pressurized boiler, and not sitting in a damp or wet basement during the off season, likely has a long, long lifespan still remaining. 30+ years is not out of the question. Just as a guideline, you might start with a deduction of $2,000 for used, then deduct for years in service (maybe 5% per year), deduct for needed repairs, then for cosmetic demerits, then labor to remove (if you the buyer are responsible for this).
