If you are looking for an alternative website to Craigslist for selling your old tools or offering other construction related services, check out DiggersList. It is a newer start-up website, so the traffic they receive is nowhere near the amount of traffic Cragslist generates.
However, you can post as many ads as you want (posting too many ads on Craigslist can get your ads flagged and deleted) and you can offer other services. You can cross-post your ad to different cities, too (something Craigslist doesn’t allow).
Bonus: I have posted many items on Diggers List and I have never received a spam email message!
This is a quote from the About DiggersList page (I hope they don’t mind)..
“With a presence in 17 markets across the United States and growing rapidly, DiggersList.com is a unique fusion of free classifieds and community features that allows contractors, property owners, suppliers and DIY enthusiasts to buy, sell and trade thousands of excess construction materials as well as place competitive bids for jobs and services.”
I couldn’t have said it any better myself.
Looking for a Job?
Also, if you are looking for work, Diggers List may be a great resource to find a construction or contracting type job in your area.
So, check it out and get a feel for the site. It is a newer website, so don’t expect your phone to ring off the hook or find 100 emails asking about the item you are selling.
But if you are having a hard time selling that air compressor or your old forklift using Craigslist, it might be a good idea to give Diggers List a shot since they market to that specific demographic.
