    Can you all please spread the word that TFF Quote me exists

    It will only work if there are both buyers and sellers on here and the more of each the better service it will provide. You may not need it today but i'm sure that at some point you could find this section useful and it might save you some money.

    Its a win / win in that it helps farmers get better prices and brings ready to buy / sell customers direct to the door of the trade

    When your talking to merchants and input suppliers please make them aware that they might find this feature of use to bring them business

    also use this thread to tag any TFF members that you think should be quoting !

  2. I think this feature could well work really well. As has been said it requires numbers to get better. I suppose my only worry is with expensive things like chemical that it does provide quite a bit of information to any miscreants.

    For example, I know that within the next few days or so that in Clive's stores on his farm (which I could find out the location of pretty easily with a few minutes on Google) are some fairly valuable sacks which can easily be chucked in a Transit during the night.

    Having had a neighbour loose nearly 20k worth of Adexar this year I think it might be worth keeping the successful completion of an order to yourself.

  8. Presumably you mean vault like spray store? Or am I to assume that the entire building has been electrified?!

    can you do a bid me section? Sellers put up pictures of what they are selling and members bid like e bay.

    I am new to this forum and last night gave this section a try regarding my spring fert requirements.
    I am very impressed with the two replies so far received - both where well presented and clear - there was a difference between their quotes and the three others I had been given from regular suppliers via email query- I am not saying at this stage that this forum will result in huge price reductions but I now think a margin of a couple of percent saving coupled with prompt payment or the like will ensure my spring fert bill bucks the trend and gives me a few pounds more to spend elsewhere in this costly business of farming. (not going off to Bennidorm - but may afford to watch it on telly with a bottle of beer no less - so cheers forum members - post your requirements)

    glad its proving useful and being used, I have had some great quotes and bought inputs via it on several occasions now and am getting sharper prices than I was getting from my regular suppliers so its certainly saved me money

    now we know it works in principle we will steer some resources towards developing it more hopefully to make it better still for buyers and sellers

    new classifieds launches next week with a new look for the forum as well so all being well our developer will have some time to put into many of these other improvements that can be made

    As per title of this thread though please all continue to spread the word about quote me to other farmers and suppliers - the more that use it the more powerful a buying and selling tool it will become. Ultimately its success or failure is down you !
