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 "My Account" on the left menu and click "Create Account". 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.

After you complete the registration form you will be prompted to login. After you login click on the "Add Listing" link in the top menu. You will then select a category to list your machinery in and hit Continue. Next, you will fill out the details about your equipment. Required fields will be bolded. Next you will be prompted to make payment for your ad. Payment is currently accepted via Visa & MasterCard.

A: You can include up to 6 photos of your equipment at no extra charge. The image must be in the .jpg or .gif format (.jpg is the preferred format for pictures), and have a file size no larger than 1 MB (1000 KB).
