How Do I Earn More Money Selling Used FDOT Barriers Through Eiffel Trading?

FDOT barrier walls include all barriers approved by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for highway, bridge, and roadway projects. In Florida, the FDOT uses two types of precast concrete barrier— K-rail (or type K) and low profile barriers—and as such, FDOT barrier walls are synonymous with each of these for the purpose of this blog.

Due to the durability of FDOT barriers, they retain their value and can be resold after a project is complete. However, the marketplace where you choose to sell your FDOT barriers can impact the amount of money you earn for them. Here, we cover how you can earn more by selling your FDOT barriers through Eiffel Trading as opposed to auctions, global marketplaces and other online venues.

1. Eiffel Trading’s online platform attracts more potential buyers for used FDOT barriers.

If you choose to sell your barriers using an online marketplace, the quality of the platform can affect the visibility and success of your listing. Many websites are outdated, making it tough for buyers to navigate the listings and find what they’re looking for. Clunky websites are particularly detrimental when selling products like FDOT barriers, since potential buyers often have specific requirements they need to meet, which are dictated by the state of Florida. If your listing is buried in a confusing website, it may not get the visibility it deserves, and you could struggle to find interested buyers.

A user-friendly and streamlined platform like Eiffel Trading's online marketplace makes it easy for potential buyers to engage with your listing. With our simple and intuitive design, Eiffel Trading's platform makes it easy to browse listings, filter by specific criteria, and communicate with buyers. This ease of use can translate into faster sales and greater profits.

2. Eiffel Trading will earn you more money for used FDOT barriers than an auction house.

If you choose to put your FDOT barriers up for auction, you may be limiting your potential reach and therefore reducing your chances of finding a buyer willing to pay a fair price for your barriers. This is because only the members who attend an auction will have a chance to bid on your barriers, rather than the much larger audience that would have access to your barriers on an online marketplace. As a result, you may ultimately be forced to take an unfair auction offer instead of retaining your selling rights by listing your barriers for sale directly to the consumer.

When you list your FDOT barriers on Eiffel Trading’s platform, you’ll have the opportunity to target contractors located nearby who are looking for barriers just like yours. Our enhanced search tools ensure every listing gets the attention it deserves, which drives up the value for your materials. Furthermore, Eiffel Trading's online marketplace sets no deadline, allowing you to sell your FDOT barriers at your desired price.

3. Eiffel Trading offers higher quality supplies and equipment.

Most online marketplaces don’t implement quality restrictions. Unfortunately, when a website’s average inventory is low, it drives down the price of goods for everyone using the marketplace, since sellers must reduce their prices to remain competitive. Furthermore, many global goods marketplaces charge sellers to list their products for sale, and the marketplaces can take days to push listings live unless you pay extra for a membership through their platform. Each of these restrictions cut into your profits.

Eiffel Trading never charges sellers a fee to list their products for sale. Additionally, because the average quality of products sold on Eiffel Trading is higher than that of those on a global goods marketplace, you can expect to earn a fair price for your materials.

4. Eiffel Trading can help you price your used FDOT barriers most effectively.

Pricing your FDOT barriers correctly is a crucial step in the selling process. If you price them too low, you risk leaving money on the table and not earning the full value for your equipment, but if you price them too high, potential buyers may be deterred.

Pricing is a balancing act that involves factors such as the current market demand, the condition and age of your barriers, and your location. Choosing the right listing price can be difficult, particularly if you don’t wish to spend time researching the current market or are new to selling barriers. That’s why Eiffel Trading is here to help you navigate the listing process and ensure that you price your barriers correctly. We have a team of experts who are knowledgeable about the market and can provide you with up-to-date pricing information based on your specific details. By taking advantage of Eiffel Trading's expertise, you can ensure that you are pricing your FDOT barriers competitively, maximizing your profits, and selling your equipment quickly.
