How to figure a fair price?

I am going to sell off all of my 9 Vision reptile cages and I'm at a loss as to what to ask for them. They are older, and several are drilled so that I could attach accessories because they were used to house lories. I don't think it is OK to ask the going price for used cages if they have been altered in this manner.

I want to arrive at a fair price so that whoever gets them will be happy, yet of course I want to get a fair amount. Any ideas?

Well I've always been of the opinion that market determines value. Start high and work your way down. When someone sees a price they're willing to pay then they'll grab it. One time I had a couple adult male boas that I no longer needeed. I started with a slightly high price and dropped it $5.00 every couple days. Eventually someone saw a price they were willing to pay and grabbed them up.

They were shipped to me, the seller just smacked a label on the cages. They are actually very lightweight for their size although sturdy. The shipping of the glass separately was more involved though and 2 panes had damage.
Of course, since petroleum prices are up I'm pretty aure that delivery costs have risen also.

Scott, if i can get my kid to slow down for more than a second (after helping me all day, he is out with friends, what an awesome kid if I do say so myself)maybe he can take some pix.

I think I'll have him do that and then do an ad and I will be more than happy to talk there, this original post was to get some advice on pricing since I was just completely uncertain where to start; (I love to shop but I don't sell stuff very often).
