When you take high quality photos of your HDPE pipes, potential buyers will get a better sense of what you’re offering and will therefore be more likely to act.

Furthermore, you should aim to take multiple photos from different angles to ensure you’re showcasing your HDPE pipe in its entirety.

2. Take Photos of HDPE Pipe After Uninstalling

Buyers want to see exactly what they’re purchasing, and they might hesitate to go through will a sale if they can’t view the entire HDPE pipe. To help make your HDPE pipe more marketable, take photos of the HDPE pipe after uninstalling.

Keep in mind that pipes can be priced differently depending on location, meaning that your region will affect your price.

4. Be Upfront About Defects

5. Include All Relevant Details

It’s also helpful to include the pipe’s previous applications, especially if the pipe was used to transfer a liquid.
