If its from a buy/sell shop, that should give a little more piece of mind I think, but regardless of what happens, OP if you pull the trigger on a box (or more) - keep us updated, I am curious!

This covers me too, if it is rainy or especially dusty, I throw in a small bottle of chain lube and a rag so that I don't have to listen to chain squeak after 30-40 miles :)
