Got extra flooring? Selling flooring on Craigslist is free and easy! If you aren't familiar with
Craigslist.org, let me
Craigslist is an online community that allows users to post classified ads which, in most cases, are free to post. There
are a variety of different categories which one can post under, including everything from job ads to items for sale. In the
"materials for sale" section, it is not uncommon for both flooring professionals and consumers to sell floor covering
materials and services.
If you are a homeowner that has a large amount of flooring materials leftover from an installation, whether it is carpet,
tile, hardwood, laminate, stone, vinyl, or just about any other floor, you may be able to find someone that is willing to buy
them in your home area. Additionally, if you are in the flooring industry, you can sell flooring related products and
services to consumers in your local area. It is common to see classified ads posted on Craigslist by flooring professionals
who offer both the cost of materials needed for your floor and the installation fee at one set price.
Post your Flooring on Craigslist
It's simple. First you logon to Craigslist.org and click "post to classifieds". Next, you select the type of posting you
would like to submit, in this case "for sale". The next step is to choose what category your flooring materials or services
will be placed under. In most cases "materials for sale" is the best place to post flooring ads.
When it comes to actually entering your post information on Craigslist, it's simple. You need to select a title for your
post. This is what those browsing the classified ads will see first. Think of this as your "teaser" and try to make it
something that will catch your target audience's eye while giving them a brief description of what you are selling. Next,
set your price. This could be a dollar amount per square foot or the price for the entire purchase. Here are a few examples
of good titles for Craigslist classified ads:
Great Deal on Armstrong Red Oak Engineered Hardwood Floor – Brand New!
New Mohawk Laminate at Half the Price I Paid – Beautiful Hardwood Look – 10 Boxes
Dal Tile Ceramic Tile – Installation Included for an Unbeatable Price!
Next, simply enter how you want to be contacted and then enter your posting description. The posting description is
where you want to be very thorough in describing what your posting offers. Provide detailed information as to what is
included in the ad and what is not, as well as the condition of the flooring and whether it is new or used. Additionally,
you can upload pictures, if available, which will make it easier for those searching the classifieds to determine if you are
selling what they need.
Overall, Craigslist.com is free and simple to use if you need to sell flooring online and many people have been getting an
excellent response in doing so. Make sure you read the posting terms and conditions to ensure that your post will not get
flagged and deleted. Multiple postings of the same listing are probably the most common cause for deletion. Why not try it
out and see if you can sell your flooring on Craigslist today. You've got nothing to lose.
