whats the fork lift worth?

Well, the short answer is, whatever you're willing to pay - its an auction. I've had the lift for 10 years, and it was old when I bought it. I've kept it well maintained, and it will lift a full skid quite high quite fast. Its like an old Toyota Landcruiser - not real pretty, but you can't kill it.

Barefoot James - The business assets I am having auctioned off are from my company that I just sold - Child's Play Organic Lawns. Something else that I am selling is 6 totes of CMS, which was the base for my liquid organic based fertilizer, Liquid Gold. It's not compost tea, but is a mix of many high nutrient concentration ingredients. I'd be happy to talk to you about this product - you may want to consider buying this at the auction - it willl probably go pretty cheap. Reply back if you have questions. Hope to see you there.

Don't have a fork lift! That why I asked how much is the lift worth - obviously at an auction someone will offer and you accept or decline - I was just asking what is it worth? How about the Molasses? What is it sold for and what do you think you will sell for? I guess the answer is - "whatever someone will pay" Sorry I asked.

Forklift - probably $1k - $2k
Mollases - I paid about $100/ton when I bought it, plus the cost of the 265 gal totes.

Why are you selling the business, if I may ask?

I moved my family to the Kansas City area from the South Bend area for personal reasons. Business was doing fine, but we needed to move.

Thanks for asking...

You're welcome.

Good luck in KC! Will you be starting a new business there, or do you have something else in mind?
