    Aluminum Window Prices
    I recently purchased the inventory of an Aluminum Window Manufacturer Co. along with the five trailers they came in. They are various sizes and types. How do determine what the windows are worth? From what I can tell, there are single panes, double panes, arch tops, horizontal sliders, jalousie, single hung, clear glass, smoke glass, etc.. I'm sure you get the picture- Is there a general rule of thumb for pricing? I read somewhere W x H X 1.35 for Viynl, but that was retail. I want to sell these below manufacturer pricing- Thanks

    first I have to wonder what you are doing buying things you don't have an idea of their value.

    but a good idea is to think wholesale is about 1/2 of retail. And manufactor cost would be about 3/4 of the 1/2.

    Not a set rule, but a rough idea.

    To answer your question, for what I paid for this (according to the formula you provided), I'll make my money back just off one trailer load. Now I have to find the capable buyers-
