3 Benefits of Listing Concrete Formwork Online
If you’ve finished a project and have used concrete formwork sitting in the yard or in storage, you have a few different options for getting rid of it and making money in the process. One option is to sell the formwork through a traditional broker. This can be a somewhat slow process. You send pictures and information to the broker, and then they advertise your equipment after approving and modifying what you’ve sent. Another option is to list your formwork on an auction site. This can also be a relatively fast way to get rid of it, but it’s not the most profitable. Many online auctions are unreserved, which means you don’t get to name the price, and the buyer could walk away with your formwork for much less than you expected.
Another viable alternative is listing your formwork on a site dedicated to finding formwork buyers in the construction industry. Here are four of the benefits of choosing this option:
1. You’ll likely make a higher profit from the sale.You get to choose the price of your formwork. You don’t have to agree to whatever the broker recommends you price it at, and you don’t have to accept whatever the highest bidder offers. This means you could end up with a higher profit.
2. All you have to do is list your formwork and leave the work to someone else.You just have to upload some images and a description, and your formwork will be on display to all of the site’s users. It’s quick and easy, and you don’t have to spend waiting for the broker to start advertising your equipment. You also don’t have to spend time watching an auction to see what bidders are offering.
3. Your formwork will go to someone who really needs it.It won’t go to someone who’s just looking to get a good deal at an auction. It’ll go to someone who was searching for a specific type of formwork and found that yours fit their needs. You’ll be fulfilling a need in the industry, and your formwork will be put to good use. If sustainability is important to your organization, this can be a major benefit.
