Used Equipment Classifieds

    A:  First off, you have to register for a guest/limited/free account if you haven't done so already.

    One or two listings can be purchased ala carte at $75 each. Any more than that would dictate joining as a member to reduce cost per listing.

    Decide how many for sale listings you will want active at any one time. Each membership class has a limit on that (10, 50,100 or unlimited) and select a membership category accordingly.

    Proceed through the purchase process and your account will be active immediately. Once you have done that, you'll see a blue "Post an Ad" button at the top center of the used equipment page. Good quality photos are encouraged.

    You can manage your listings by clicking the Account tab on the menubar and select My Used Equipment Listings. There, you can edit, renew, and close/delete your listings.

    NOTE: You must click the arrow to the left of Used For Sale or Used Wanted to expand the list of categories.

    The rest is fairly intuitive. Contact us with questions.

    A:  You can edit your classified ads, move them to a different category, and close them when sold.  Closing keeps the ad in the system for 90 days until it gets auto deleted. These show up in pink (only to you and admins) when you are logged in.

    Expired ads (pink) have an hourglass icon. Closed ads have an X icon.
     
    Ads can be accessed by clicking Account on the menu bar and then My Used Equipment Listings. This brings up a chronological listings of all ads you have posted. Expired/closed will be in pink. All can be managed by clicking the individual listing.
     
    You can also go to your Profile (top right) then click the My Activity button on the right, then under All Activity on the left select Classified Ads
     
    Coming in the next update will be better sorting, user delete (in addition to close) and bulk delete.

    A:  All membership categories have always had a (theoretical) limit on used equipment listings active at any one time. The limit has always been in the category description but we didn't enforce it until recently, when some dealers have accumulated several hundred listings.

    Membership categories at the $195 level (gc supt, sales rep, allied affiliate, etc) have a limit of 10. Dealer/Distributor members ($495) have a limit of 25. The Used Equipment Mega Dealer ($2,495) has no limit and also gets banner ads on the site and in our Friday e-newsletter.

    If you have reached your limit, we encourage you to go through and close any listings that have been sold. You can also upgrade to another membership category to increase your limit.
