What is DIY Marketplace?

DIY Marketplace is the go-to home improvement marketplace for the DIY community. At one point whether we rent or own a home we find ourselves doing some sort of DIY work. Whether it is painting a wall, patching up holes, handing up pictures or shelves, we find ourselves doing work around our homes. To help save money and from buying an abundance of home improvement supplies, we created DIY Marketplace so that you can buy supplies from your neighbors. Doing so will save you money, time, space and it also helps the environment by reducing waste.

DIYers Love Us

Living in an HOA community, I had to paint my front door a specific color. My neighbor painted their front door a few weeks prior and had almost a full-quart left, so I bought the paint from them. It saved me money because I didn't have to pay the full retail price for the amount of paint I needed, and I still have paint left to paint another door, so I'll sell what I have leftover to someone else in my community.

We had so much good paint and spackle leftover after repairing blemishes and painting the walls in our kids' room that it was taking up too much space in our garage. My husband and I didn't want to dump it and didn't know what to do until we came across DIY Marketplace. As a DIYer on the side, it was great being able to help another DIYer by selling our leftover supplies. We also use DIY Marketplace now to find inspiration from other DIYers out there. If you live in a house, apartment, condo, tiny home, big doesn't matter if you rent or own; if you're not using DIY Marketplace you're missing out!

I'm a tattoo artist by trade and an interior design enthusiast. Having a platform like DIY Marketplace helps me because I can buy supplies that someone might have dumped. Also, renting tools from others in my area has helped me because I'm able to save money by not buying more tools, and I can rent some of the tools that I have to others and can also make money. DIY Marketplace is the best app out there for home improvement.

Alex WhitmanTattoo Artist

As a contractor, my team often has leftover 5-gallon buckets of paint, flooring, screws, and other materials that we no longer need. When I learned about DIY Marketplace I was excited because our supplies can now go to someone else who needs it. Also, when doing texturing we had to rent sprayers from Home Depot. Now, we are renting power tools from other companies and even locals who may have the power tools that we need, cheaper than what we were renting them before. If you're a DIYer or professional and you're not using DIY Marketplace, you are missing out on a lot of opportunities.

Keith BrewerGeneral Contractor

I absolutely love DIY Marketplace! When we do home repair work around our home, we used to go to Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace, but since we learned about DIY Marketplace, we don't use any other marketplace. DIY Marketplace puts us DIYers first and that is really cool. We are all about buying used when we can, and knowing that DIY Marketplace is helping the environment is awesome.
