Where can I buy used kitchen counters?

I've seen on "Renovation Nation" (TV show) that people are buying things from houses that are going to be torn down or forclosed and selling everything in it. It's a great GREEN idea and I would like to know if there are anyone doing this in the N. Baltimore area? Hopfully in Harford County area would be fabulous. I would like to get into this business as well, think it is the best way to recycle and go "green" as well as saving consumers a lot of money!

As somebody stated before, the loading dock and second chance are good places to look at but WINKS building supply is the cheapest but don't expect much help from their staff.

Why do not you try Theusedkitchencompany to buy cheap kitchens online. They are best in second hand kitchen sellers. I have tried their service and I am very satisfied from their quality service and products. Not only you can purchase second hand kitchens from there, but you can also sell your kitchen if you want which is only a service provided by them. Hope this would help you.

There are several places you can go. One of them is www.Communityforklift.com it's in DC. The other one in Springfield it's www.rebuilt.com and habbitat for humanity. Community forklift might have a better selection and prices. You can also check Ikea department as is.

Craigslist...go to wanted and list what you want.  Also look in the materials for sale area.  There are always people remodeling, some just throw the stuff away...I have had good luck with Craigslist.

Best of luck

ReStores are very good, but you can also find local salvage yards. These are great places to find items, and many specialize in certain types of items. For example, some yards will deal with historic homes only.

Craig's list works well, try it. Habitat for Humanity is a good resource as well.

Advertise your desire on craigslist.  Once you have a reputation and business, you will have builders/home renovators lining up to sell you things that they normally disgarded.  Good luck.

As Mike mentioned I would give a shot at the local Habitat store They have one out in Alexandria VA also. I recent met a contractor he fixed a fixer upper home and bought all the supplies from the Habitat store...one thing about the store if you see something buy it you can not buy in chunks..next week it may not be there.

In the Southeast, I frequently see classified ads reporting a house is going to be demo'd, so come strip it (at low prices) before it is gone.  Watch the ads to find out if this is true in your location. 

Find and visit local Demo companies - see how they work and what they recommend.

ReStores are awesome sources of lots of unexpected items, if you set up a schedule and visit them frequently.

I love the ReStore here in Kansas City. Here's one that might be close to you: http://www.baltimorerestore.org/
The trick to shopping at a ReStore is to go frequently as new supplies come in daily. You might even talk to one of the employees or volunteers who work there to see if any would be willing to call you if something that might interest you comes in.

I was also going to suggest the Habitat for Humanity REStores.  There are several throughout the US.  All proceeds from purchases benefits the building of future Habitat homes.  They have a wide selection of items that have been donated from:  overstocks, store close-outs, builder donations, and slightly used items from renovators.  Prices are well below retail and you will always find great things.  Sign up for their newsletter and they will email you when they have new arrivals.  Good luck.

Habitat For Humanity is either affiliated with or operates reuse stores called ReStore. Follow the link to stores in Maryland.

habitat.org

Otherwise try lumber yards that specialize in building salvage.

Maybe google it ?
Or google demolition companies in your area.

When my demolition company demo's houses for me, they always save stuff for their own homes.
