What do I need to place an ad?
  • Your vehicle information. Enter as much information about your vehicle as you can, such as make, model, year. Having accurate information makes it easier for buyers to find your equipment. Include the information you would want to know if you were looking to buy this equipment. Use the best features of your equipment in the Ad Title, such as "Low Hours", "One of a Kind", "Original Owner".
  • Your contact information, including email address. You must have an email address so that buyers and Terahub can contact you. Terahub's Privacy Email feature keeps your email address private. Potential buyers enter their message on our message page, and we send the email to your address. You respond directly to the potential buyer if you are interested. This way, you have control over who sees your email address. You may also list a phone number or mailing address if you prefer to be contacted by potential buyers through those means.
  • A digital photo. Photos sell your equipment faster. Several of the types of ads that we offer allow you to include multiple photos of your equipment. You can add or delete photos to your listing at any time. Photos must be either JPEG or GIF format, and should be 640 x 480 pixels, and have a file size of 100K or less. See the Photo How To for more information.
  • MasterCard or Visa. You can enter your ad information at any time, however, the ad will not be available for buyers to see until payment is made. Terahub only accepts MasterCard and Visa, and all payments must be in U.S. Dollars.

Can I add a photo later?

How do I receive and use your special offers?
Special offers are automatically recorded on your account when you make a qualifying purchase. They are also automatically applied to your bill when you check out with a purchase that can use a previously qualified promotion. For example, if we are having a "buy one get one free" promotion, and you purchase two ads, the promotion will be applied at check out, and you will only be charged for one ad. If you only purchase one ad, the promotion will be recorded on your account. You can come back at a later time, purchase another ad, and the promotion will automatically be applied to the new purchase. You can see what promotions are recorded on your account by clicking on the "View Promotions" tab of the "My Account" page.

Can I mail you my ad information and photo?
No. Unfortunately we are not able to offer U.S. Mail as an option at this time. If this is an option that you would like please let us know. If there is significant interest, we may offer it in the future.

How do I contact a seller?
When you find an ad listing that interests you, click on the "More Details.." link for that ad and the "Item Detail" page will be displayed. The "Item Detail" page provides contact name and phone number information if the seller wants to be contacted by phone. If not, click on the "Contact Seller" button. This will bring up a form. Enter the message you would like to send to the seller, then click "Send". The seller will receive the message a few minutes after you click "Send".

What if a seller doesn't respond?
If you used Terahub's "Contact Seller" page, you may try calling the contact phone number if one is provided. Terahub helps buyers and sellers find each other, but we don't get involved in the transaction beyond that.

Does Terahub play a part in the equipment purchase process?
No. Terahub is an internet based publication that lists equipment for sale. We provide tools that help buyers and sellers find each other, but we don't get involved in the sale transaction in any way.
Back to Top
Who sets the price of the equipment listed?
The seller. Terahub doesn't play any part in setting the price for equipment that is listed. We do random quality checks of information that the seller lists, but can't guarantee that any price is fair. With that said, we firmly believe that as more equipment is listed on services such as Terahub, the fair market value of equipment will be much easier for buyers to determine.
Back to Top
How do I know the equipment listed is good quality?
Terahub cannot guarantee the quality of any equipment listed on our site. You should view an ad on Terahub with the same level of skepticism and due diligence that you would have with a newspaper or magazine ad. You may want to have a mechanic inspect the equipment, inquire about warranties, ask for service records, etc.
