1. Consider the condition of your used CDOT barriers.

In order to accurately price your used CDOT barriers, you can start by considering the barriers’ condition. Look at factors such as age, visual signs of wear, and any damage the barriers may have sustained while in use. Buyers are willing to pay more for barriers that exhibit minimal wear and tear, have a longer expected lifespan, and maintain their functionality and aesthetics. Taking steps to preserve and maintain your barriers, accurately assessing their condition, and setting a competitive price based on market trends will increase your chances of earning a higher price for your used CDOT barriers.

2. Consider the location of your used CDOT barriers.

Shipping heavy and oversized items like CDOT barriers can be costly, especially if the barriers must travel long distances. For this reason, contractors are often looking for barriers nearby and are willing to pay more if the materials are in their area.

If your barriers are located near a central construction hub or major urban area, you may be able to charge more, since contractors will be factoring the shipping savings into their budget. Conversely, barriers located in remote areas will require higher transportation expenses, reducing the willingness of buyers to pay a premium price.

Given these factors, you can consider the local demand and potential transportation hurdles when crafting your used CDOT barrier listing and pricing your material.

3. Consider including the CDOT barriers’ specs in the listing.

As you’re drafting your CDOT barrier listing, help potential buyers narrow their search and filter out unnecessary inquiries by listing your barriers’ exact specifications, including dimensions, age, prior uses, etc. You can help buyers narrow their search even further by listing the barriers’ location, as many buyers don’t want to pay high freight fees and are looking to purchase CDOT barrier locally.

4. Consider taking high quality photos of your CDOT barrier listing.

To make your used CDOT barrier walls more marketable, take high quality photos that showcase the barriers from different angles. You can take photos in good daylight to help provide a clear and accurate view of the barriers' condition, as well as any visual signs of wear or damage. Buyers like to know exactly what they're purchasing, and they may pass over a barrier wall if quality pictures aren’t included. It's a good idea to take photos from all sides, including the front and back. It's also important that the barriers are clean and free of any debris that could obscure the picture. If you really want to go the extra mile, take a clear video showcasing the barrier on hand!
