I've used preloved for over 5 years I always sell things in there. I use Gumtree too. I like Preloved better easier to use, renewal is easier than Gumtree if you have multiple adverts to renew you can tick a box to renew all or individually instead of doing them one by one on Gumtree. I have the free membership

preloved is good, i find it safer to use if you want delivery aswell beacuse you need an account to use.

how good is preloved? I never used it . have been using Gumtree from 6 yrs and find it good

it works however your page links to a vouchers website which I dont think is allowed but I may be wrong?

Wow I had no idea this was such a controversial topic! I hoped by posting … Wow I had no idea this was such a controversial topic! I hoped by posting this I would be helping somebody out but seemingly not! Just to weigh in on the 'Which is better? Preloved or Gumtree?' debate... It depends entirely on what your looking for, for example try searching for anything horse related on gumtree.. turnout rugs, tendon boots, overeach boots, grooming kit etc.. etc.. & I pretty much guarantee you can count the results on 2 hands, maybe even 1 & thats NATIONWIDE!! It really is that shocking, yet perform the same search on preloved & ill put money on it you'll find an abundance of items just in your local area. To give Gumtree the benefit of the doubt I tried to be really vague & searched the word 'Saddle' in all categories, this brings up a mere 882 ads nationwide, as this also includes bike saddles I narrowed my search by selecting the pets category leaving me with just 327 ads. Now when I run the same search on preloved I get a staggering 6,753 results which when narrowed down by selecting >home & family then >horses & Livestock still leaves me with 5,881 results, there really is no contest here, the winner is clear. I have to admit, sometimes Gumtree has more to offer in certain categories but I have yet to find such shockingly different results as the ones I mention in this post xx



It was a good deal, thanks for posting. I just went to sign up but saw it had expired.

I just checked both Gumtree and Preloved. Gumtree provides an Extended Validation certificate for all secure areas of their website (green padlock). Preloved on the other hand just has a standard certificate that does not demonstrate who owns the website (grey padlock).

From a technical standpoint, Gumtree is doing a better job of securing your data. All secure connections are fully end to end encrypted. So the only way you could have been 'hacked' is via user error of some kind (malware on your system?)

Splitting hairs at any rate :). But to be sure, there is no reason to be concerned about Gumtree.

Someone hacked your account?! Given that Gumtree uses the same security … Someone hacked your account?! Given that Gumtree uses the same security infrastructure as Ebay, that doesn't seem plausible. People don't just get hacked by accident...there will have been something happen that allowed your account to be compromised (logging in via unsecure/free wireless, or via a malware compromised computer).There is no inherent reason to trust Ebay more than Gumtree as they are the same thing.As for advertising for a house - if you put a 'wanted' request for a house, then you'll probably get some do gooder trying to help. Better to just browse the myriad of houses that are listed and make a choice that way.

Sadly, disappointment soon follows the excitement of a more reasonable alternative to the 10% fees ebay charges. I have tried preloved and others like ebid and these just don't have the reach. I have found gumtree and forums better for selling items.

Thanks OP, worked for me... might actually use this site now!

great stuff

This should be in the ' just had my pants pulled down' section..

Yeah, what that second guy said. 250mb data??? Are you having a laugh??!!
Once me and my friends ended up at the same hotel bar with a president of Vodafone, and started talking about phones and deals... He told us (that was about 2 years now) that the future will be that they will be giving you unlimited or a lot of minutes & texts with fairly "affordable" contracts but will be making their money on data... Guess he was telling the truth...

The iPhone 6 is being announced next month, so there may be more price drops soon. I'd hold off, rather than pay £18.99p/m, especially with only 250MB of data.

5C is a gimped version of the iphone 5, a two-year old model. £18.99 is too much for a used version of that, particularly with a paltry 250MB of data which will mean you can't actually use any of the advantages of having a smartphone

Just bought a dog from that site.

Thanks for the info. A decent alternative to eBay is well overdue.



"I have fallen out of love with Ebay." - I should say, as a seller. I still buy lots through them.

Thanks very much I use preloved alot, great find, heat added.

Easy to use and list but I'm going to be honest and say the prices on their are unreasonably high. Look at ps3 Games for a rough idea. I won't be deserting here or eBay anytime soon for this site as it needs a lot of work done on it to compete seriously with eBay or Gumtree

Preloved have a great forum too

Preloved is a more reliable service - I always found that when buying and selling on here potential buyers and sellers are more reliable, because they pay for the service they tend to be looking or selling for that exact purpose. On each occasion buyers have turned up when agreed.

Gumtree however is full of messers! I was advertised a table and chairs -8 people arranged to view and not one turned up, first person on preloved turned up.

Same with my dog, tried gumtree first to be contacted when on way to view and be told puppy had sold to a family friend, preloved - lovely reliable woman.

That's just my experience, and for £2.50 a year, well worth it just for the general higher calibre of sellers on there alone.

Got this a year ago. It does give you early notice of ads. Not that I made much use of it! Will get it again though because you never know.

If you haven't had any sales on Gumtree, Preloved is an alternative audience...I've had sales on both so it is a 'Great Alternative'

Agreed.
