Companies such as Antique Appliances and Jowers Appliances buy and sell antique refrigerators, as well as stoves and other appliances. As of 2015, these companies sell antique refrigerators starting at about $2,500 and can go over $6,000 in addition to shipping and handling costs.
Customers are attracted to the refrigerator's distinctive appearance, which was a regular feature of the antique appliances before the 1960s. The work that goes into restoring these items back to operational order is considerable. People who have one of these items to sell should expect to receive less than full price, however, as companies seek to make a profit after refurbishing the unit and preparing it for sale.
