Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I list equipment?
A: To post a new ad to ForestryEquipmentSales.com, you must first be a registered user. Registration is very easy, just click on the "Login to My Account" link in the left Menu. Then click "Don't Have an Account? Click Here" and input all the information the form asks for. Although your e-mail address is required to post an ad, it is not revealed to anyone unless you reply to an inquiry on your equipment. Be sure that you use a working e-mail address. If you provide a bad e-mail address you will not be able to receive replies from interested parties. Also, make sure to test your ad by sending a reply to yourself after placing your ad. This will ensure that emails from our site are not blocked by your spam filter. After you complete the registration form you will be prompted to login. After you login click on the "New Classified" link in the top left menu called Listing Cart. You will then select a category to list your machinery in. Next, you will fill out the details about your equipment. Next you will be prompted to make payment for your ad. Payment is currently accepted via credit or debit card.
Q: Can I Include Photos in My Ad?
A: You can include up to 10 photos of your equipment at no extra charge. (.jpg is the preferred format for pictures) Photo ads have a much higher view rate than ads without photos, so please try to provide at least one picture of your equipment.
Q: How do I upload a photo after I have already placed a listing?
A: Click on “My Account" in the top menu, then click "My Active Listings" in the My Account Menu. Find the ad you want to add images to by clicking "Manage This Listing" beneath the ad. You will then be presented with the ability to edit all aspects of the ad, including which images you want to use/ad.
Q: How Much Does An Ad Cost?
A: Ads start at $39.95 (29.95 renewal) for 30 days. 90, 180, & 365 day options are also available, see our rates here. All ads include posting of up to 10 photographs of your equipment and all ads will stay listed for 30 days from posting date, until sold, or until you remove the ad. If you are an equipment dealer, you may be interested in our Dealer Program which offers savings on multiple equipment ads. There are no hidden costs or commissions to be paid after selling your equipment.
Q: How Long Will My Ad Run?
A: All ads will run for either 30, 90, 180, or 365 days from the date of posting, depending on which package you sign up for. Please remove your ad after your equipment has been sold, as it will help keep this site up to date, and reduce unnecessary phone calls to you.

Q: How Will Potential Buyers Contact Me?

ForestryEquipmentSales.com uses a private mail feature which protects your e-mail address. Instead of displaying your e-mail address in the ad, a "Reply to Ad" link is displayed. The person replying to the ad then sees a form and clicks on a submit button to send their reply to you.
Q: What Do I Do When My Equipment Sells?
A: After your equipment is sold, you can delete your ad by logging in and going to "My Active listings" and then clicking "Manage this Listing". The delete icon is the red "X". You may also contact us with your ad number and we will remove it for you.

Q: How do I reply to an ad?
A: ForestryEquipmentSales.com uses a blind email reply system for people who are replying to your ad. This is done through the “Mail Seller” link. ForestryEquipmentSales.com does not release any registered user's e-mail address. The owner of the ad has the option of including a phone number and email directly in the ad if they choose.
