Eiffel 101: 3 Reasons to Sell Your Used INDOT Barriers

INDOT barrier walls are a specification of precast barrier made of poured concrete reinforced with embedded steel rebar and are used to direct traffic, reduce speeds within construction zones, and shield motorists, pedestrians, and workers from potential dangers. The term "INDOT barrier walls" includes all types of precast concrete construction barriers that have been approved by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) for highway, bridge, and roadway projects.

Because barrier walls can be uninstalled and resold after a project is finished, there’s an active market of interested buyers looking for used INDOT barriers. If you have INDOT barriers left over from a previous project, there are many good reasons to sell them: you can make money to put toward your next project, save storage space, and help other contractors who are looking to purchase used barriers.

Why You Should Sell Your Used INDOT Barriers

1. You Can Make Money Selling Your Used INDOT Barriers

INDOT barriers are designed to withstand the rigors of heavy outdoor use and harsh conditions on highways, making them durable and long lasting. As a result, they don’t depreciate like many other materials and can be resold once they're no longer needed, as long as their condition is still “roadworthy”. By selling your used precast INDOT barriers, you’ll free up storage space, which can save you money on storage fees. Additionally, selling your barriers can earn you funds for future projects, investments, or other business-related expenses.

As new potential buyers enter the market every day, listing your INDOT barriers for sale with Eiffel Trading provides an opportunity to connect with these parties. Selling your barriers doesn’t have to be time consuming; Eiffel Trading makes the selling process easy and straightforward, enabling you to quickly earn money for your INDOT barriers in a few simple steps.

2. You Can Save Storage Space Selling Your Used INDOT Barriers

Storing large equipment such as INDOT barriers can be expensive and inconvenient, especially if you store the barriers at an offsite storage facility. Furthermore, transporting the barriers to and from their storage location or reorganizing the barriers when you run out of space can add additional costs and hassle.

Selling your used INDOT barriers is a great way to reduce your necessary storage space. When you find a buyer for your barriers, you'll no longer have to keep them on your property or pay for storage elsewhere. Additionally, reducing the amount of storage space you need creates more room for other equipment or materials and can help streamline your operation. Sometimes, this even allows you to clear out an extra yard and quit paying for an unneeded lease!

3. You Can Help Other Contractors by Selling Your INDOT Barriers

INDOT barriers can be expensive when purchased new, particularly if a buyer needs a large amount of barrier wall for a big project. This can make it difficult for contractors or project managers to obtain the necessary materials to move forward with their plans.

If you have used INDOT barriers that you no longer need, listing them for sale is a great way to take advantage of the market while also helping out a contractor who may be relying on the purchase. This is especially true for smaller contractors or those working on projects with tight budgets. By purchasing your used barriers, they can save money without sacrificing quality or durability. They can use the money saved on barrier costs for other aspects of their project or to invest in future projects, and meanwhile, you can recoup some of your original investment and save on many of the associated costs of storing unneeded INDOT barriers.

Tips for Selling Your Used INDOT Barriers

Once you’ve decided to list your used INDOT barrier wall on Eiffel Trading’s online marketplace for contractors, there are a few steps you can take to make your listing attractive to potential buyers. Here are our tips to help you make the most of your used INDOT barrier listing.

1. Price Your INDOT Barriers Based on Their Condition and Location

When choosing a price for your used INDOT barriers, consider their age, visual signs of wear, and damage. The condition of your barriers is the most important factor when determining the price, and barriers in better condition can be sold for closer to the original cost. If any patching needs to be done, this puts more burden on the contractor purchasing the barrier wall. Once you’ve evaluated the condition of your INDOT barrier wall, you can also consider the location of the barriers. Are they currently near a central hub, or are they in a more remote location? Buyers often consider transportation costs for faraway materials, and this may further impact the value of the barriers.

2. Take Photos of Your INDOT Barriers in Good Light

Aim to take multiple photos from different angles to ensure you’re showcasing your INDOT barriers in their entirety. When buyers can clearly see what you’re selling, they’re more likely to act. This is especially true if the buyer will not see the barrier wall in person before making a purchase. You don’t need expensive camera equipment to take high quality photos—bright daylight and a clean phone lens work just as well. Even better, take a few videos!

3. Be Upfront About Defects

Buyers may cancel a sale if they weren’t aware of defects beforehand, so it can save time and hassle to be upfront about any defects in your INDOT barriers, including patches and cracks.
