Second hand hives on e-bay.

This seems good.
Any problems with buying secondhand?

Only that you don't know what the previous inhabitants died off. Blowtorch them and they should be fine.

I Agree with Chez.
The seller also has some commercial brood boxes for sale that might be worth having as well.

I wouldn't be buying Commercial boxes as well - unless you buy the lot and use the Commercial brood boxes and the Nat supers on top and sell on the Nat broods....saves possibly faffing about with brood and a half. Can you spot bias here Very Happy?

However, the roofs will need the blocks lowering as there's something odd going on there....too low on the top supers. Not a big job.
