Used pallets typically sell for between $1 and $10 each

The price of used pallets depends on many factors such as their size, condition, volume and whether the material is plastic or wood.

A pallet that is still in usable condition is worth more than a pallet that needs to be refurbished. Someone who is buying pallets to make furniture might be more interested in aesthetics but will likely still pay more for pallets that aren't badly damaged.
