Default Purchase a used ferret nation cage?

Thank you for the advice about the C&C versus Ferret Nation cages.

We have decided to go with the Ferret Nation cage, but are shocked with the cost of shipping that is added on to the price. I have made a bazillion calls to pet stores in about a 40 mile radius around our house, and none of them carry the cage in their store. We have found a used one on Craig's list that has housed chinchillas and male rats, but I am concerned about our hedgie being upset by potential smells that might linger. Has anyone ever bought a used one? Can we just bleach it to get the possible smells out?

If it is in good shape go ahead and buy it. We had our ferrets in our FN prior to the hedgehogs getting it and with a good cleaning, it is fine. You do need to totally dismantle the cage because urine gets in between the parts of the cage. We use a dish soap and bleach solution and a scrub brush, then rinsed well with hot water and a final rinse of vinegar and water. Ferrets are far worse in smell than rats or chins and they leave an oily residue on everything but the hedgehogs didn't notice a thing once we'ed cleaned the cage.
