I have 3 glass demijohns for sale or trade... 15 gallon capacity.. with basket and bung included.
I don't know what it would cost to ship them, but I live in Duluth Minnesota... zip. 55811
Someone please make me an offer.
They are too heavy for me to lift alone, so I am not using them anymore.

If they'd ship to TN without breaking I'd be interested...if the shipping isn't too high. My zip is 38456. If you could weigh them and see what shpg would be, I'd make you an offer.

I am trying to get a quote via UPS.... but it is very difficult because they are not square boxes. I think it would be safe to ship them as they are in the basket... that way the handlers would know they are glass. If they are boxed up, you have to add that weight, plus they will get tossed around just like any other "fragile" marked box.

I would like to get rid of all three... Plus its a lot cheaper shipping 3 at a time.
The units are about 20 inches wide and 26 inches tall... weight is about ~15lb each.

Total cost shipping via UPS with me dropping them off would be about $32 to Arcadia, Wisconsin ... and about $36 to zip code 38456.

They tanks are in my way and too big for my operation... make me an offer, I have no clue what they are worth.

I'm interested in them, but I have no idea, what they are worth. So I don't know either what to offer you, if you could give me some idea whats on your mind, we might be able to come to some kind of terms.

Thanks,
Andrew

I think I paid around $50 each, plus tax and a plus a few bucks for each bung... and a ton on shipping. Buying them from me also saves you a few bucks in sales tax also. I think it was about $200 for all three.

Shipping them from nothern MN to Tennesee is about $36, via UPS if they allow me to just stamp the shipping lable onto the basket. Either way, they are insured up to $200 included in the shipping price. I'd hate to "give" them away for nothing, but I'd also like to be able to replace htem with a few new carboys.

I checked ebay... there are only a few of this size, most with wicker baskets that are already broken and prone to rotting and collecting mold.

Sounds like a few of you might be interested, make me an offer!

SOLD!, Sorry for not updating, figured this post was dead.
Sold them locally to a guy for about #120 for three... enough money to buy a few carboys that are easier to handle for me.
