Zooming in on the right equipment: Saved Searches and Similar Offer Alerts

Do you have a Tradus buyer account? All serious buyers on our platform do. For sellers, this shows that you’re on Tradus to do business. But there are more perks to our buyer account. Let’s zoom in on two of them: Saved Searches and Similar Offer Alerts.

Why sign up for a buyer account?

All buyers that want to do business have a buyer account on Tradus. It’s the only way to get into contact with a seller. Only registered buyers can contact our sellers. Thanks to our convenient translation service, it doesn’t matter which language you speak. We make sure the message gets across! Interested in a Tradus buyer account? Create your free account here.

Save your searches

Say you’re looking for a used tractor unit. But not just any will do. It has to be a used Mercedes-Benz Actros with less than 100,000 kms driven, a double rear axle, automatic transmission, etc. You may have entered 40 different criteria, only to find out your perfect vehicle is currently not available. By using the Saved Searches feature, you can save your search and check back later with just one click. Imagine the hassle this feature will save you!

How to save a search

In this example we’ve searched for a used MAN TGA 26.360 with an automatic transmission. This search came up with five vehicles, but none of them match that exact model we’re looking for. So we’re saving this search for later. The way to do this depends on the device you’re using.


On our desktop website you click the star at the top of the search form (above ‘Filters’). In the image below you can see where to locate the star.
