About Our Used & Refurbished Anchors
We have a selection of anchors in all conditions.
See below images for examples:
Excellent Condition
Anchors are sanded, dipped in acid bath to remove all rust, then hot dipped galvanized for "LIKE NEW" finish

Insignificant or no surface rust, pitting or damage

Excellent anchors require no refurbishing, but we can have it done for you if you like for an extra charge

Good Condition
Fair Condition

Anchors in good condition may have minor surface rust or electrolysis, otherwise NO significant pitting or bending.

When REFURBISHED, these anchors are in excellent condition, or "LIKE NEW"

Anchors in fair condition may have some surface rust, and/or some bending.

Poor Condition
Anchors in poor condition show significant rust, and/or some bending.
> Before refurbishing
> After refurbishing
Many anchors can be refurbished. This is a fair-to-good condition anchor before refurbishing....

...This is the same anchor after hot dip galvanizing. It is now ("like new").


Most of our anchors are refurbished before they are listed for sale. If we find an anchor in our invenotory that has not been refurbished, we can have it hot dip galvanized for an extra fee.
