        I'd stick to the original offer or maybe $350. You can try to explain the cost to get it going, it might help persuade the kid out of it. As others have said, it could be a complete wreck inside and this setback could be fate pulling your tail out of a potential fire.

In order to bring a lathe home I need to line up a trailer, have the lathe loaded. When home I need to call a tow truck to have the lathe lifted off the trailer. These things are best done on week days.

          The best option, IMO, for a trailer is a hydraulic drop deck that can be found a Sunbelt Rentals for under $100 per day.

            Yep.. that's what I use (except it's 4 wheels and I borrow it from a neighbor). I've moved several BP's, my 3500lb lathe, a 4000lb (?) Nardini and many other machines on one. All with pallet jacks under "custom and heavy" pallets bolted to the machines. For a lathe I use two pallet jacks, on under each end.

            In addition to ratchet straps, I use chain binders to lock the machine down to the trailer.
