      • Photos from underneath the unit.

If your video is on YouTube, you can include the link in your listing. Otherwise, please send your video file to listing@bidonequipment.comreferencing your Item# in the email.

  • Any available information from the manufacturer should be included. Specification sheets and the manual can be added to your listing by sending the files to referencing your Item# in the email.
  • If available, please provide the shipping information as soon as possible. This will allow us to provide shipping quotes for Buyers more quickly so they can place their offers.


  • Information in your description is best viewed if written in bullet points or short sentences. Large blocks of text can be difficult for the Buyer to find the information needed. 


  • Review your opening offer. Buyers will be unable to submit offers below that amount. Bid on Equipment recommends pricing your Item to allow for offers that stimulate negotiation. You are not obligated to accept any offer below your asking price and you will have the opportunity to present counter offers for the Buyer’s consideration. We highly recommend that you regularly review your asking price and opening offer, they can be changed at any time (unless there is a current valid offer on your Item).


  • Items you have multiples of that are the exact same can be listed in the same listing specifying how many units you have available. Items you have multiples of but are different in any way should be listed in separate listings (unless being sold as a lot).


  • Please advise us if you have listed units in separate listings but were used together as we can link the listings. For example: if you have a line of equipment but have listed the pieces separately, we can reference the other Items in each listing.


  • If you have a large quantity of items to list, please contact us for a bulk upload form to assist you in making the process easier. 


  • Changes in description, price and title can be submitted through your MyBidon portal at any time. Additional photos, videos or files can also be added at any time by sending them to referencing your Item# in the email.
