How to ad an item to our FREE Online Classified Ads
You will need to register for an account in order to place an ad.
- There are no fees charged for an account
- Registering for an account does not place you on a mailing list of any kind
- If you already have an account set up for the Directory portion of our website, you will still need to set up an account within our FREE Online Classified section. (I know it is a little bit of a pain; but it is a technical thing within the database and scripts.)
- You can set the account up to use the same user name and password as your Directory account to make things a little easier.
- You do not need to have an account set up with the Directory in order to have an account with the Classifieds.
