    You'll be lucky. Everywhere is out of stock.

    Join powerlifting kit for sale UK on Facebook. People selling bits in there at fair prices.

    Ebay is full of chancers trying to sell at rediculous prices.

    People trying to sell plates for £4-5 per kg, which used to fetch £1-1.50. Madness

    Facebook market place has the odd decent human selling at standard prices but it's just a case of being lucky and finding it at the right time

    No chance finding anything at a decent price. Was watching a couple of Spinlock DB’s the other day as they were just round the corner and had 80kg of thin 5kg pro plates so you could make a up to a couple of 40’s. Usually you’d be lucky to get £100 for them but people bid them up to £300.

    Ended up spending £100 odd on various bands instead

    I'm wanting to sell a 5' barbell, and 3 pairs of rubber coated plates - 25kg, 20kg, 15kg.

    As others have said to be honest with hopefully a few more weeks before things are starting to lift you may as well do band and body weight and ride it out. Loads of kit will be available in 3-4 months.

    There's reasonably priced stuff out there brand new but you got to keep an eye out.
    I've got my setup all brand new and I haven't paid above and beyond, just bought from companies that haven't price hiked.
    It's cheaper to get new plates than second hand ones, but the stock goes fast.
    Tbh I'd wait till Thursday now and see what gets said.
