acceptable and reasonable

I realize that we usually talk of reasonable and unreasonable costs/prices. However, can we use "acceptable" in the following context:
Seller: I don't mind selling you the desk, but the delivery would cost you more than the desk itself.
Buyer: (thinking to himself) It's an old desk which costs $60. The delivery will cost me $80. I think this is quite acceptable. Buying a new desk would cost me much more than that.

Is it not appropriate to use "acceptable" here?

Thank you
