gets items sold

junkies in your house, bad design, overpriced

Let’s get busy The last few weeks have been hectic. Between packing two houses, arranging finances and getting butt naked on stage for charity, I’ve realised that myself and my partner have a lot of furniture that won’t be able to fit into the new place all at the same time. Short of rotating the...

Good

Free advertising

Stinks of fraud

This review is based on me ''trying'' to sell and ''trying'' to buy certain items on Gumtree. I write ''trying'' in inverted commas as that is the only way I can describe the relationship between myself and the adverts. I will talk you though what Gumtree is, how to sell and how to buy. If you...

“Gum what????”

Design and Layout

Thought I would review a site that I check very often. www.gumtree.com Background Gumtree.com started back in March 2000 when a local classified ads and community site decided to connect people who were visiting the city or for people who planned to move here. Since those dark days Gumtree has...

Very detailed

Open to fraud

Many will remember a time when the classified section of a local newspaper was all there was if you wanted to look for second-hand goods, or look for a place to live without going to an estate agent…but not anymore. Goodbye the classified section; hello Gumtree.com To quote the frontpage of the...

“From Jammy to Gummy?”

As I recently had a piece of very good fortune I found myself with a car to dispose of - a car which still has an MOT, and one which I fully intended to run myself for a couple of years yet so what to do? I'm tight fisted (sorry frugal as it should be known now) so I didnt want to go paying for...

Free & easy to use.

Dealing with total strangers.Care needed.

I'm reviewing GUMTREE. I think most people will recognise the name,but in case you don't, it is an online selling/buying site. Think ebay ,but without bidding and with a wider range of things on offer. For example you can advertise for flatmates on there,rent out property ,advertise services...

I have recently started using the site Gumtree, because i have heard some great reports about people using it. It was only last week I decided to have a look at the site, and I must say I am very happy with the service so far. Gumtree is a buying and selling site, which is similar in some ways to...

I have to say that the first time that I decided to use Gumtree was around year ago, this was to launch my own hobby... Buying and selling mobiles while vigerously testing them to write up Ciao reviews... In a way then, I am very lucky, I am able to get hold of any phone I want... I review them...

“General Online Ad Board”

published 08/01/2009

Many categories & ads, free ads, user-friendly

Spam, Forum is poorly managed

I first came across Gumtree when I was looking for a place to live in my student days, a friend mentionned it to me and I checked it out. I have since used it whenever I am looking for a new place to live and for job hunting too as there's often plenty of ads to choose from... That is what...

What's Gumtree? In case there's anyone who doesn't know, Gumtree is a website where you can advertise goods and services - for instance, we've sold a car, a dining table and a bike through this site and it's cost nothing. I also occasionally put an ad on for my English teaching (I teach English...

lots of adverts, easy to use

no security measures, load of nothing

Gumtree.com is a website that is basically a local listing site, nationally! When you go to the site you pick the nearest city or large town to you from a list, and then the adverts you see will be more relevant to your area. There is a large list of cities to choose from, so you should easily...

“Looking for a flatshare?”

published 29/03/2008

Wide userbase and variety of ads.

Site often experiences technical difficulty.

I can't belive no-one out there has reviewed this already so on to business... What is it? Admittedly, this isn't going to be a review of the WHOLE site; I'm just using it to try to find somewhere to live when I move next month so this review refers to the flatshare search facility. So, in a...
