Offering to buy 2nd hand furniture
So some friends are moving aboard for good and their have sold their house with the buyer wanting to buy some of the furniture. I asked what they are going to do with the rest, they said, they would just throw them away becausse they are on a tight schedule to move in the next few weeks. Thus, won't have time to deal with many euquiries, people chanign their minds etc... so easiest just to throw them.
Now, when I asked that quesiton, it didn't click that I could offer to buy the rest (if suitable) from them, as we are completing on our first home just before they leave. Would it be an odd thing to ask? If not, I have a feeling they would just say take whatever for free, but I can't allow that because some of their stuff is actually quite nice. So what would be a reasonable price to offer % wise? 50%? 60%? More? Less? I would also be find out how much to transport them because we are about 3.5 hours drive away from each other, but it looks like we could fill a Ocado size van for about £400.
