Where do I Sell Precast F-Shape Barriers?
Precast F-shape barrier walls are a style of concrete crash barrier used to separate lanes of traffic in order to guide traffic and protect drivers, workers and pedestrians while construction is underway. Because F-shape barrier walls have excellent longevity and come in standard, widely used sizing, they retain their value and can be uninstalled and resold once a project is complete.
There are six main options for selling precast F-shape barriers: on a global trading platform, at auction, through an online materials seller, on a local listing site, through a broker, or on Eiffel Trading’s Online Marketplace. Here, we outline the pros and cons of each.
Option 1: Sell your precast F-shape barriers on a global goods trading platform.
Though global goods marketplaces serve a large market, they often charge sellers a fee to list their products for sale, which cuts into profits. Additionally, most global goods marketplaces take days to push listings live, especially if the seller doesn’t pay extra for a membership through their platform.
Pros: High traffic to global goods websites means more potential buyer, which can make it easier to sell your barriers.
Cons: It often costs a fee to list materials, and some sites can take days to push listings live unless you pay extra for a membership.
Option 2: Sell your precast F-shape barriers to an online materials seller.
Online materials sellers differ from global goods marketplaces in that they cater to local operations and individual contractors. When you work with a materials seller online, they’ll start by giving you a quote for your barriers. Usually, online sellers offer under market value for precast F-shape barriers since they’ll need to turn around and resell the barriers for a profit.
Pros: Often local, caters to individual sellers.
Cons: Will often pay less than market value for precast F-shape barriers.
Option 3: List your F-shape barriers on a listing website like Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, Offer Up or eBay.
Local listing websites like Craigslist, eBay, Facebook Marketplace and Offer Up can connect you with buyers in your area who are looking for precast F-shape barriers, which offers the convenience of working with a local buyer. The downside is that you’ll be responsible for handling the sale start to finish, and there are no methods for dispute if the sale falls through or if there is an unexpected disagreement between you and the buyer.
Pros: Local listing sites put an emphasis on local sales.
Cons: You’ll be responsible for the entire sale start to finish, including the associated risks.
Option 4: Sell your precast F-shape barriers at auction.
When you sell through an auction house, they handle the logistics of their sales and act as an intermediary between you and potential buyers. Selling your F-shape barriers at auction is an easy way to hand off the materials with minimal work.
The problem with selling your F-shape barriers at auction is that you don’t get to name your price or keep your selling rights, you’ll have to pay a selling fee, and you won’t have the benefit of selling your barriers to the most interested buyer who needs it for their project. Rather, your barriers will likely be sold to an auction attendee looking to get a good deal, who may later flip the barriers for a profit themselves. This means you’ll make a smaller profit for your precast F-shape barriers,.
Pros: Auction houses handle the logistics.
Cons: You won’t be able to name your price when you sell your barriers at
Option 5: Work with a broker to sell your F-shape barriers.
When you work with a broker, they handle the logistics and provide a network of interested buyers, which they’ve worked to curate. However, some brokers have smaller selling networks when compared to online platforms.
Pros: You can take advantage of a broker’s network.
Cons: Brokers tend to have smaller selling networks compared to online platforms.
