    How much are used wooden pallets worth?

    I have a stack of 50 nearly new wooden pallets. Not the super heavy duty (blue) ones, but regular 48" by 40" or whatever pallets. I have a guy coming in today at 4.30 to look at them... how much should I expect per pallet? I think $2 each is fair.

    Not for sale individually.

    yup free fire wood usually, OR craigslist might take a few away. My Dad's garage was originally built in 1941 with shipping crates from Bolens in Port lol.

    Never thought anyone would actually pay for them. I've only seen the "free pallets" signs.

    I can easily get 50 pallets a week for free from my work.. We usually pay someone to take them.. I'm sure they'd be more than willing to let me sell them...

    At my last job, we were constantly running out of skids, they are expensive to buy new, so they would buy used whenever possible. They were $7-8 each new IIRC
