Looking to Sell?


The outgoing materials from your property renovation or tear-down are valuable! You could have it all hauled to the landfill. But that’s not good for the environment, and it leaves money on the table—yours!

We have the right experience, the best buyer network, and a proven approach to help you resell your used building materials, fixtures, appliances, cabinets, and landscaping—with minimum hassle and for maximum profit.

It’s easy for you.

Holding an exclusive Pre-Demolition Sale for your property is the most efficient and effective way to resell your building materials. It’s also easy for you, because we do all the work!

  • Contact us 4-6 weeks in advance of your scheduled demolition.
  • We’ll pair you with one of our demo-sale advisors, and you’ll meet to make a plan for your sale event.
  • Once the plan is finalized, our team will organize, promote and manage your sale event. You don’t have to do anything!

It’s smart to work with us.

With our years of experience, we’ve perfected the sale process. The advantages of working with Before U Demo are many:

  • We know what will sell, and how to price materials.
  • We have built a vast network of potential buyers from all over the Chicagoland area and beyond.
  • We use an effective combination of online marketing of your inventory and on-the-ground marketing of your sale to reach the right potential buyers.
  • We handle the logistics of removing sold items.
  • We even have interesting options for items that don’t sell.

When your sale has concluded, you receive a generous share of the proceeds. You can feel great knowing that you have offset the cost of your construction project, returned the outgoing materials to use, and helped minimize environmental impact by reducing landfill waste.


Remodeling projects in condo buildings, or high-value, one-off items like an entire kitchen, may call for a By-Appointment-Only sale. Here’s how it works:

  • Call us to describe your project, the materials, and the situation. We’ll assess the opportunity and the right approach to resale.
  • If it’s a go, we’ll agree to the specifics of how and when we arrange appointments. In any case, we’ll leverage our vast network of DIYers, rental property owners and contractors.
    • Many of our repeat buyers keep us informed about what they need or will need in the future—so we may have a buyer already waiting for you.
    • If we don’t have an immediate buyer, we will expertly market your property, screening all potential buyers and arranging showings for qualified prospects as agreed.
  • We’ll broker the final transaction and facilitate materials removal.
  • Once we’re done, you get paid your share of the proceeds.
