State puts 'used' giant morgue refrigerator up for sale on eBay

The ad is creepy and funny at the same time, the highest bidder is only $202 right now, anyone from NYC
city-data forum is interested? You don't have to worry about running out of beer ever if there is any new
city-data meet-up party, since it could fit nearly 2,000 cans of beer.

The buyer is also responsible for cleaning the morgue refrigerator, but it's in good condition with few
scrapes and bangs according to the article. *lol* A new morgue refrigerator that size must've costs over
$10,000 plus. Can you guys think of a practical use for this type of refrigerator for private owner?

I could see a bar owner interested in this. A private buyer would have to be pretty eccentric to want this.

I guess the scrapes and bangs were from a few misplaced individuals trying to get out.

I wonder if the Dept of Health would re-certify it to hold a side of beef for a restaurant to use? Or for the personal use who hunt Deer. Kill it, bring it home, stick it in a drawer and deal with it on your own time. In reality, the most likely bidder will be for the scrap metal (its mostly steel).

Holy hell. It is $1475 now.

How much does it cost to setup a new one like this? 20K?

I will pass. Would not want to put meat or beverages in there for a BBQ and cause a Trioxin outbreak to happen again.

Be careful of the bottom left compartment there is some scratching and a few letters that look like N.S.ER.TU.


Has anyone checked whether it is self defrosting?

It's now up to $1,925 with 2 days left. I don't think these bidders spending $2000 for scrap
metal, maybe they are furneal homes wanted to expand their business for the summer.
