in total i bought 4 boxes & flipped them all (keeping the black box) for a pretty good profit.

That's awesome man! This is my 4th snap on. I have bought a couple that I at least got my money back on when I sold them as the tool inventory has grown. I have never made any $$ on one though. Mine is so full I have stuff laying everywhere and two other cabinets full too. I have actually been trolling Craigs list looking for another mint black one like the one I have now. I have found a couple of nice ones but they were the wrong color.

I have a strategy when buying the boxes....have a friend out a low offer (cash today)...and then go dark after a few days of enthusiastic emails....and then swoop in w/ a lower/cash only immediate offer. Most are desperate to sell them.

I've now learned that many lost their jobs, stopped making payments, took their toolboxes and RAN. Ive never paid more than about 30% list. the 2600 cranberry side cab was a contest prize & never had a tool in it...i got it for 600 bucks including shipping !

Great strategy. Where are you picking up your leads?

with the exception of the cranberry side cabinet (which i got off of ebay when an auction ended with a "no sale") we bought all of them off of craigslist....but i went all over for them (dallas, san antonio, tyler & houston).


i made at least 1k on each box & even had one re-sold before i got it home

Very nice rig. We stayed up the road from you at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores. We road over Peridido. It looked cool.
