Need opinions for offer on cage...
« on: June 17, 2008, 06:33:24 PM »
So I'm trying to sell my first Rat Manor...still in near perfect condition..i have the box and instructions....i made an ad on craigslist asking $60 OBO...I paid in store about $85 with tax...I got an offer from someone for $40...this cage is like new though..nothing wrong with it at all...I dont know if I should take it or hold out..this money was going to go towards my FN


*bangs head* nevermind..the guy just emailed me back saying hed only give me $40 and it was for his two grown ferrets...I told him he needed a larger cage than this and I wouldnt feel right selling it to him to use for ferrets

I have the same cage and would have a really hard time taking $40 for it.  I would also list it for $60 and take $50 at the lowest.  I really like my Rat Manor though.  I'm sticking with it until the Critter Nation comes out. ;)

the only reason im going to the FN is because with my girls (i have 4) i dont like having them all in that cage so I have to use the 2 cages and I hate having two cages...double cleaning is ewwww..so I have no other choice.

I know.  I have 3 in my manor and I have Cutie and her babies in another cage.  I haven't had any luck introducing Cutie in with my bunch yet.  Hopefully by the time the Critter Nation comes out I can get them together.  I am going to keep 1 or 2 of Cutie's babies with her so she is not alone while I am introducing.  I totally agree about having to clean 2 cages.  My other cage is a marchioro rat 62Q.  It is pretty cool and bigger than the rat manor but more to clean LOL.

Same here  ;D!


I was selling a wire hamster cage on Criagslist once and I had a person ask me if it was large enough for Ferrets...Uhhh...noooo! Then they asked me if it could fit a guinea pig instead  :doh:.

Frankly, I'd have a hard time paying more than half retail price for any used cage, no matter how new it was.  Used is used.

Good for you!  I like mine for now.  I will sell it when the CN comes out though!
