Default 5 gal. Ball lock kegs for $28.99 + shipping

Theres an ad on Ebay for used ball lock soda kegs for $28.99 + the shipping if anyone's interested. Seemeed like a decent price. The ad says they've been cleaned out and pressure tested. I just ordered three and haven't gotten them yet so I can't speak for the quality yet. The shipping for me was 24 dollars from across the state. Heres the link.

Shipping see way too much. How much did you pay for shipping?

Hmmm...shipping would add about $10 per keg to me up in North Chicago area...still seems like quite the deal at $39.07 each after shipping is factored in...still on the fence but might end up going with this...

Well i played with the qty and there is some break points that make it interesting:

1 keg = $40.32 shipping
7 kegs = $49.70 shipping ($7.10 each)
8 kegs = $67.75 shipping ($8.46 each)

Total for 7 to me would come out like $252.63 ($36.09)...hmmmm....

Another thread said to call direct for cheaper shipping with this guy as eBay shipping is sometimes exaggerated.

^ +1...

I sent them an e-mail and see what it comes out to...even at e-bay quote it would still be $9 less per keg the local (and still would have to add gasket kit to either one)...

Monitor Craigslist. I live in WA state and this guy runs this posting all year long.
