Good Afternoon

Thank you for choosing Just Answer

 

These file cabinets are currently selling in the range for from 3500.00 up to as much as 4900.00. Depending on where they are for sale at, typically Antique Shops get higher prices. Since you are wanting to sell yours, I would try listing in on Craigslist, it is free, the interested party contacts you , they purchase and there would be no shipping. If not that then I would check with a local Antique Shop, they may want to purchase this or sell it for you on consignment.

 

If I can be of any further help, please feel free contacting me. And if you would like to use me on any further questions, feel free putting my name in your question line then I will be sure to get it. Look forward to working with you again.

That seems high. Can you tell me why?
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 5 years ago.

That is the prices they are being sold for at auctions and at antique shops, in the style and condition you stated yours is. I saw some smaller then yours sell for less, around 1200 to 2000, but, on average these cabinets are bringing pretty good money. It appears these cabinets are very much sought after.

Thanks
