Keep your ear to the ground

Savvy farmers can land machinery, trucks and even livestock deals through DoneDeal Farming without having to stray from home turf. This leaves lots more time to get back to the pressing job at hand Nearly every business and livelihood has changed with the advance of the internet and modern farming is no different, especially when it comes to DoneDeal. Our easy-to-use website – for those putting up ads as well as searching for livestock or machinery – allows farmers, young and old, to make money from the comfort of their homes or while out on the land. From tractors to poultry Whether you use DoneDeal through a computer, a regular mobile phone with internet access or your DoneDeal iPhone app, there are plenty of ways to keep an eye on out for good deals or where you can make a few quid yourself. There’s really everything for every farm, with thousands of ads to keep you occupied. Our Farming section is divided up into Livestock, Tractors, Farm Machinery & Tools, Farm Produce, Poultry and Other Farming. Of course, we realise that certain items in our Motor section are also relevant to the agricultural industry so we have included Quads, Trucks, Trailers and Plant Machinery in the menu. While you can search for a particular word, going directly to the relevant section may save you time, or maybe even help you spot a deal you can’t resist. Park your driving and search online If a cross-country drive to view or buy something you’ve seen on DoneDeal isn’t something you have time for – don’t forget you can search by area. Pick your province or county (or a county you’re willing to travel to). You can also choose to view either, or both, private and trade ads. If you’re using DoneDeal to sell items, it can be a good idea to see what everybody else is doing, so have a good look through similar items for sale before putting up your ad. You may also want to have a look at the Wanted Ads – the tab beside For Sale Ads in each section. You may end up finding a buyer without even having to place an ad. If you’re selling, you can pay for your ad by phone, card or Paypal – whichever you prefer. This means your payment will appear on your phone bill if you have a bill phone, statement or Paypal account – handy especially if you’re placing a lot of ads and need to hand over expenses to your accountant. Go landscape and take that snap Something that is very important for every farmer to remember is if you’re selling, put up an accurate description and take a photo or video of the item with your phone or camera. This will help you get genuine calls rather than people who aren’t really sure about the condition or suitability of what you’re selling. This is of particular benefit if you’re short on time or in a busy season. If your farm is in a rural area with poor mobile coverage, you can always put the landline number down and the time that it suits you to receive calls. Don’t forget to specify if you can deliver the goods, livestock or machinery or whether they have to be collected. It all helps in making your life easier and getting a quicker sale – maybe even while you’re walking the land.
