“Warning do not use this company ”

Written on: 22/01/2016 by Miguel310 (1 review written)

Collected my bag within a few days of requesting a collection 2 weeks later no contact from them about payment despite advertising within a couple of days. Premium number they advertise goes to a mailbox which is full. Reluctant to call again as it is a premium rate number, which I thought companies were not allowed to use.. No response to emails I have sent. Will be reporting this company to trading standards… Read Full Review

“Prepare to be taken on! ”

Written on: 18/01/2016 by Joannan480 (1 review written)

My Mum recently moved into a nursing home. She was a hoarder, and amongst her vast collection of things were 3 wardrobes and 4 sets of drawers full of clothes most of which she'd either worn once/twice, or still had their tags on! I gave 3 black sacks to charity and thought I would get a bit of cash back for her on the rest. I checked each item as I put it into the sack because I was aware they didn't accept any garments that were bobbly/worn etc. There were several brand new coats still with… Read Full Review

“THIS COMPANY IS A COMPLETE DISGRAC AND SHOULD BE...”

Written on: 10/01/2016 by Chase119 (1 review written)

They collected a full bag of clean (washed and ironed) clothes. Heard nothing until I contacted them by e mail and got £3.21 by Pay-Pal. They said 9kg of the clothes were unacceptable. If they were unacceptable why don't they return them. Never again, and I suggest no one else deals with them either… Read Full Review

“Avoid 'Return to Earn' , they are the biggest CON!!!”

Written on: 23/08/2015

This company collected a big bag of good working order clothes and handbags over a month ago, since then I heard nothing from them. Only when I decided to contact them by email, the reply was the person who handled my collection was on holiday conveniently and he or she will be dealing with it a weeks time but after a week nothing happened. I decided to looked at the reviews of this company and I then realised that I made a mistake to use this mistake. This is a greedy company!!! If I knew, I… Read Full Review

“New clothes only”

Written on: 03/12/2014 by dotworkdalek (1 review written)

I followed the lists of what was acceptable. Did everything they requested. Took over 6 weeks to tell me that only 3kg of the 15kg I'd sent in was acceptable to them. Basically, they only want brand new, unworn clothing which is fashionable. I would not recommend this company. If I'd not spent a long time sorting the items to make sure they were all more than reasonable then fair enough but I had spent the time and effort!… Read Full Review

“No eve or weekend collections”

Written on: 20/08/2014 by JeromeBallard183 (1 review written)

Ordering my bag was straightforward, but when I tried to book a collection date I found they only collect Monday to Friday during the day, not evenings. Those of us who work full time can't sit at home waiting for a text to tell me when the driver is coming. I ended up using a different company. Extended collection time or Saturday collection would be very helpful… Read Full Review

This company reject around 70% of anything you send , They cannot provide proof that the items they reject are not being 'RECYCLED' for PROFIT....
In Addition , the Customer Helpline is a PREMIUM RATE number ,They will actually cost YOU to send clothes to this company ,

“would never use again”

Written on: 25/07/2014

my bag was over 11.6kg and they accepted 3.3kg. They gave me £1.99. Thats disgusting. They showed me 9 pics of 9 items they wont accept which wouldn't even weigh half a kg. I am sorry but there was new items with tags on still in that bag and all they gave me was £1.99. I had another bundle to send and would not even waste my time. There are other sites out there who are more decent and honest. Please shop around.... search by cash for clothes for decent companies. I would have got… Read Full Review

“Avoid this company”

Written on: 08/07/2014 by 313Burton (1 review written)

I prepared a full, very heavy bag which contained clothes that were clean, unstained with no holes or breakages. All of the items were in good working order and good for re-sale. It was my understanding that they would be re-sold abroad cheaply. The collection was a mess. The address that they recorded was incorrect. I know this because they emailed me to say that their driver had visited the house and that I was not there. The house number that they had quoted did not exist. I also left the… Read Full Review

“Possibly misleading”

Written on: 10/06/2014

We sent return to earn several items (about 15kg) when we moved house. The issue of a bag and the pick up process went smoothly. However, they accepted about 40% - worth about £4. We were surprised as many of the items were new and unworn or practically new (the result of a successful weight loss). Their photographs illustrating the reasons for items being rejected "heavily worn" were carefully chosen, but did show two items bought (as is the fashion) as faded. One, a sweatshirt, was an… Read Full Review

I had exactly the same thing .... Again majority had labels still on as brand new but rejected !!!!
Over £300 pounds worth of brand new clothes - I kept a tally and pics of everything that went into the bag - and only got paid £4 as rest was rejected!

I have been told they will be RECYCLED, However when I asked for proof they will not be 'recycled' for PROFIT.

Sent good quality branded clothes which weren't worn out and they retained more than half of them with the excuse that they showed signs of wear etc. Waste of my time! Don't bother. Give your clothes to a charity shop instead. Service is fast- that is the only positive about them… Read Full Review

his company are dreadful, please don't use them. I sent 16kg of good quality clothing, many items were new or almost new & they gave me 84p for it! They posted pictures of some items they rejected. One of the photos was of a brand new Fatface top that had never been worn & they had commented that it was "heavily worn" & so rejected! I have complained & got nowhere. I see now why they send a courier to collect rather than coming to your house & paying you in person as more reputable companies… Read Full Review

Interestingly, I also left a poor review of this company on Yelp & they have had it removed! Yelp shows it as a 5 star business, but if you look beyond the one 5 star review to the reviews that Yelp haven't recommended you get a very different picture - many many negative reviews! I told Return to earn I would be leaving a bad review so they have obviously hunted it out & had it removed, shocking really as it just said the same as the other reviews on Yelp! Beware, a dreadful company!
