About buildBITS

  App is now available!

Most of us are sick and tired of the costs associated with getting rid of excess building materials and products, either new or second hand. It’s such a waste, particularly when the products are in good condition and can be reused or recycled and worth a bit of money.

Our passion is building and bringing the industry together to create profitability, increase efficiency, productivity and to help the environment.

buildbits.com.au is an easy to use online marketplace dedicated to the building industry where you can buy and sell used, new, recycled and surplus building materials and products for free saving you time and making you money.

The website and mobile app were developed by Award Winning Sydney builder Neil Turrell and his wife Leisa who were tired of seeing wastage, environmental damage and costs incurred from having to get rid of excess building materials and products from their building projects.

Neil and Leisa developed buildbits.com.au and the free mobile app to allow builders, tradies, suppliers, DIYers and home renovators to buy and sell excess or unwanted materials for FREE.

On the App, simply take a photo of the items you want to sell, add a description and price, then upload straight to the site. There’s no cost to list or to sell your products/ materials. If you’re looking to buy, we even have a GPS distance based system in the listings to show you what’s nearby, making buying really convenient.
