    You're talking about a consignment arrangement aren't you.
    You need to have a figure agreed to as to the minimum you will accept.
    Likewise, the seller should expect a minimum for his efforts, that amount added to your minimum should be the lowest selling point.
    Don't put your mower in there with a 'Get what you can' sell order, too many factors effect price that way.
