    Exclamation For Sale, Wanted, Trade, Employment Opportunities

    Welcome to the PPFA Corner Classifieds.

    This is a forum for members and NON members to advertise their industry related items.

    When posting an item in this area, we ask that you include some basic information:

    • The location of the item
    • Contact Information
    • Picked up only, delivery area, or shipped? If shipped, who is paying and packaging the item?
    • The condition and age of the item, including photos if possible


    Best regards and welcome!

    Helpful Hints for Selling

    This is a good place to advertise framing tools, but they are often large, difficult to package adequately, and they are often heavy.

    Maybe that is why so many sellers specify "pick up only", but that phrase elminates a lot of potential buyers who are beyond easy driving distance. For that, you could do as well with an ad in the local newspaper.

    It would be better for sellers to instead specify, "Packing and shipping at buyer's expense", and offer to arrange it. The logistics would require the buyer to make only a few phone calls to a local packing/shipping company, who could pick up the equipment, pack it, and ship it.

    That way, potential buyers could come from around the country, instead of just from around the area.

    Re: For Sale, Wanted, Trade, Employment Opportunities

    This Classified Corner is open to all. Meaning PPFA non-members as well as members can read posts, place posts, and respond. Is there some way to know if/when an item has sold or a position has been filled? If an item or listing is posted here many (many) months ago, is it reasonable to conclude it is no longer available?

    No, not necessarily.
    Items advertised months ago can still be available, if the price is too high, lack of interest, or few noticed. If you are after an item, that was advertised months ago, then you can always ask the seller. It doesn't hurt.

    It's also great when someone comes back and posts again that the item has been sold, or the position filled. This often happens if they keep getting inquiries for a sold item.
