Vendor and Service Provider Registration
While most members here on are outstanding people and great to deal with, one should always use their own good judgment when making a purchase or sale (private individual or vendor). Especially in light of some recent issues that have arisen.

This would include making sure you have a Name, Address (not just a PO Box), a valid phone number, valid and traceable email address (not yahoo or hotmail as an example). Also as the saying goes, "If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is" as in the end it is your car and money.

For the past several weeks we have been working on a type of vendor registration system for vendors. Hopefully this will help a bit, but it will never be a panacea, so using your own good judgment is paramount.

For vendors on, send me an email @ and I'll include you when we finally have the process and forms finalized.

In light of recent events that have proceeded VW Derf's post above from 2004, I want to simply remind everyone to pay attention to any brand new member signing on to sell something, and that standard disclaimers apply. This is NOT intended to discriminate against new members, nor is it intended to discourage legitimate transactions of any kind.

By all means do all necessary due diligence on every party of every transaction.

Rules are rules: anyone who comes to sell something as a vendor MUST be registered to as such to TDIClub management. A vendor, whether a registered/incorporated business or a home-operated outfit, is defined here as anybody who sells a good or goods in a manner that is more than just a circumstantial clearing of one's garage of personal effects. Where a vendor is not a registered business and the letter of the rules do not adequately apply, the spirit does. This includes non-owner employees of businesses or dealerships who advertise on the classifieds.

Important reminder: WILL NOT BE AN ARBITOR, NOR TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY of any disputes, losses, damages, etc., whatsoever arising from a transaction from the classified service.

Vendor and Service Provider Registration
The new vendor registration policy is now in effect. There will be a grace period for all vendors, service providers, and associates to register (or re-register if they are already registered) by June, 30, 2008. At that point vendors and service providers must be registered or their posting privileges may be suspended.

Details on who, where and what can be found in this FAQ:

The actual registration form can also be found here:

Once a vendor or service provider is registered, their information, registration date and a link to their website if applicable will be posted in this thread. No discussion will occur in this thread, rather questions or concerns are to be directed to this thread:

Please note that this policy encompasses more than just people selling products, but service providers and agents or associates of vendors and service providers.


Update: September 16, 2008
Since the grace period is now long over and any vendor/service provider must be registered we will be removing the "registered" part of the titles as everyone must now be registered. I am doing this manually to ensure all vendors/service providers are registered under the new terms and conditions and not an overflow from the older rules.

Minor update (by moderator Nick Lockard) : I cleaned up stickies in this section and archived the Vendor Registration thread which is a history of how our vendor policies developed. The thread is here.
