To sell old barn lumber, know how to organize the lumber, where to sell it and how to prepare it for sale. Knowing what information to give to the buyer is also useful.
Reclaimed lumber is generally organized by type of wood and dimension prior to sale. Planks of wood are bundled together to make them easier to transport.
Reclaimed lumber stores are an excellent place to sell old barn lumber. Each store accepts specific types of wood, so contact the buyer directly to inquire about any guidelines. Generally the seller is responsible for removing any nails or other foreign objects from the wood prior to selling.
When contacting a potential buyer, give him detailed information about the wood, such as type, condition, dimensions and the age of the wood to be sold. Sending pictures of the wood can also be useful.
