Hello,

I am starting a new venture. My buddy can fix broken xboxs, so we want to buy broken ones and fix them up and resell them on eBay. Anyone see any red flags right off the bat? My friend is studying electrical engineering and has fixed many xboxs so far, so we're set in that department. What do you guys think?

-Alex

Yep, it's a winner if you can source at the right price and fix them cost effectively. You might want to PM raiderjake, he was doing much the same with PS2 units at one time.

Not sure if he was just selling parts or rebuilding, nut I'm sure he'll have some good advice he can share.

Do you know any suppliers other than liquidation.com?

Used to be able to source them by the pallet, but no longer have the contract unfortunately, so I have no source ideas apart from liquidation.com at the moment.

hi, i sent you a pm tho i dont know how much help i can be when it comes to finding a supplier, its a tough business that i had to get out. the price of ps3s went down $100 but broken 1s on ebay seemed to go up a little b/c there is still a huge demand, a lot of people are trying to do the same thing.

i dont know much about fixing xboxs tho fixing ps3s is rather similar, ur friend should be able to do that too. any questions on ps3s feel free message me anytime

Hi, you may want to check the same source you plan to sell them on.. ebay under wholesale lots .I regularly see alot of salvage items in different categories.
