Do you have tips for sellers?

Oct 19, 2021
Yes! We’ve got a page of pro-tips to help you maximize your listing on our site. Check it out below!

It’s simple math: our advertisements that include photos get 5x times as many ad views and sell 3x times as fast. Most people these days have a smartphone with a camera. If not, borrow your friend or coworker’s smart phone for a couple quick snaps, he or she can email you the photos. People want to see what they are buying!

EXTRA POINTS: Add a YouTube™ video to your listing to further engage potential buyers. It’s a well-known fact videos attract more attention on the internet and a fantastic way to show buyers what you got!


Make sure the title you use for your advertisement is descriptive. For example, a title such as “Selling Everything Cheap!” is not as useful to potential buyers as “Used 2002 Prochem Legend truck mount for sale”.

Also remember to include frequently-searched-for words in your ad description, such as “used truckmount for sale” or “used carpet cleaning van for sale“, and other similar text. This helps potential buyers searching the internet to find your ad! Do not under-estimate the importance of this; it can be the difference between 25 ad views in a week or a thousand.

Do not post your ad title (or description) in ALL CAPS or use excessive punctuation to draw attention to your ad: the site moderators will change it at their discretion.


This is the best way to get more exposure for your used carpet cleaning van or used truckmount and sell faster. We offer the following upgrades:

  • Featured ads upgrade - maximum exposure on frontpage + on top of category pages + 10 photos allowed
  • Highlight upgrade - listing title is highlighted and colored - stand out from the crowd!
  • Bump upgrade - push your listing to the TOP above all other listings!


Another feature we’ve snuck in for our members is the ability to print a copy of their listing suitable for bulletin boards, telephone poles, etc.. Bonus: we generate a QR code for each listing that smartphone users can point their phone at, and be sent directly to your ad page on in their mobile web browser. Sweet action there!


This is a great feature if you have other inventory or a reseller of used equipment and vehicles. Enable the Storefront feature in your account and you will have your own business page, with custom URL containing your own listings! Enter your contact info, add pages, add your logo... design it how you like. Plus your listings will contain your logo!

To use the Storefront feature, go to your My Account page and click the Storefront Control Panel link. Here you can turn your store on or off, preview your Storefront, and customize your storefront.
