Should I Sell My Overhang Brackets?

Bridge overhang brackets are a type of concrete formwork employed to construct bridge deck overhangs. Along with timber joists and plywood sheathing, overhang brackets play a pivotal role in producing precise and secure overhangs. These formwork components are usually made of steel or aluminum. Steel brackets, however, are a bit more common than aluminum. Because they are made of durable metal, bridge overhang brackets can be installed, get their job done, be uninstalled, be used again and again, and be sold for a profit once a contractor is finished with them for a particular project.

Overhang brackets simplify and aid in the construction of bridge deck overhangs quite significantly. They are secure and enhance project safety. Installation of overhang brackets is simple and quick, whether they are installed individually or using a gang assembly, depending on their specifications. They are also compatible for installation on precast concrete beams, concrete box beams, or structural steel beams. And, in addition to being used to construct bridge deck overhangs, overhang brackets are sometimes used in perimeter work platform construction and water treatment trough wall construction.

Button to Sell Concrete Formwork

If you’ve decided to sell your overhang brackets, which is an excellent option, make sure you clean them off after use and store them in a protected area that keeps them safe from damage due to excessive heat, rain, or other inclement weather. When you’re storing and transporting them, it may be a good idea to disassemble them. For shipping purposes, this allows them to fit easily into shipping containers or boxes, which may also have the added benefit of lowering shipping costs. In addition, it is typically helpful to take clear, quality photos of the overhang brackets that you intend to sell. This allows a prospective buyer to adequately see the condition of the brackets before purchasing.


On the other hand, if you’re a buyer looking to purchase bridge overhang brackets, rest assured that buying used doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality.
