“Was selling a car and made BIG mistake ”

Written on: 14/07/2017 by benjybedford (1 review written)

Posted an ad for my car. Gumtree asked for my phone number. I gave it and my ad was activated. Moments after I had never had so many calls re car accidents! They were queuing up!! It was like Heathrow airport on my mobile.... Overseas calls about the car accident I had had (But didn't have!)… Read Full Review

“explanation would be nice;”

Written on: 29/05/2017

I tried to advertise cocker spaniel pups on gumtree but they blocked my advert.When I tried to find out why ,via email, the reply just said we make the decisions and no further correspondence will be entered into.I am not involved in puppy farming ,have never advertised pups on line before.In fact it is 14 years since I last bred a litter of pups.I think this is a very high handed and arrogant way to run any business and customers should be treated with a little more respect… Read Full Review

“Gumtree don't care about facts and favour big...”

Written on: 06/03/2017 by ecossebloke (1 review written)

Maybe it is because Gumtree is owned by Amazon that they favour companies like Apple over more independent manufacturers. That certainly seemed the problem when I tried to put my mobile smartphone up for sale - made by a smaller independent manufacturer. I put up an advert that was factually correct, even added a link to an independent review, but Gumtree didn't like a smartphone similar to one of their favoured Apple phones but for a more realistic price being online, no matter how accurate… Read Full Review

“Non existanr items.”

Written on: 05/03/2017 by 441Schaefer (1 review written)

Gumtree is riddled with ads for items that dont exist you text, telephone or email with no response or they respond to emails and play games with false information making sure they never supply an address to view because the item does not exist.I can only assume that they are sad lonely pathetic people with no friends and thats the only way they can get emails.Another problem is that if a genuine item gets sold hardly anyone marks the ad sold or better still removes it!Ive lost count of the… Read Full Review

“Absolutely rubbish”

Written on: 15/02/2017 by sexy589 (1 review written)

I've paid for my add to be advertised for 14 days and had not a single reply i had nearly a 1000 views on my add but not had a single response. Even though I've paid for featured and urgent my add seemed to appear on page 5,6,9 it was rarely on the first page. I'm pretty disgusted that they advertise your add will appear on the first page but never seem to be there. I find it very difficult to believe that a 1000 people is looking at your add but not responding. They are quick to take your… Read Full Review

“Cant get hold of anyone when you have a problem”

Written on: 07/02/2017

The first time I have attempted to sell anything on Gumtree, added my paypal account and then within hours had sham texts and emails, having already been shammed on ebay (which owns Gumtree) and my paypal account being hacked I immediately tried to take my paypal account off, couldn't do it couldn't contact anyone, keeps coming up error on the live chat and no other way of contacting anyone I had to delete my account after a couple of hours. We need to be able to contact people to be able to… Read Full Review

“All dealers same stuff day after day.”

Written on: 11/09/2016 by MarissaReid (1 review written)

I live in Glasgow. I come on to sight to look for furniture items and everytime I do its full of the same stuff being sold by the same second hand furniture dealers. There's very little outside of them when there is its frequently snapped up painted or not and then advertised with all there other goods. It gets boring same over priced stuff day after day. Its spoiling what used to be a good sight and still is outside of Glasgow and the 15 miles of dealers. Unfortunately they're too far away… Read Full Review

“Gumtree soooooo slow”

Written on: 25/08/2016 by hellomelittlelovely (1 review written)

Gumtree is so slow. Often it tries to load too many advertisements plus numerous add-ons so it is often several seconds before your search appears, then several more seconds before you can navigate the page. My computer is fast and my adsl2 speed is 10 meg/sec so can't blame that. Other websites load and operate quickly, it's just Gumtree that is PAINFULLY slow… Read Full Review

“Never use again ”

Written on: 18/07/2016 by Seamuso353 (1 review written)

Happened to me too. After paying for a featured ad, my account was blocked, no refund, no reason, nothing. Customer support is worst I ever seen. Finaly I have decided to move forward, I have found a really interesting site 1stbuy.co.uk, which seems better then any other out there. No spams, no thousands of duplicates ads, very clean, worth a try… Read Full Review

“Gumtree - Avoid it like the plague.”

Written on: 17/07/2016 by Goodserviceisdead (1 review written)

Problem pretty much the same as everyone else. We did manage, after nearly an hour on the phone, to finally get thru to a real person who was actually quite helpful, but could not answer why account had been blocked. When we did as she said, change password etc it still did not work. She said the ad would be posted again and bar taken off, no such luck. The first time we called we got hung up on or the connection was cut, but we got an email saying thanks for calling and here are the details… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/04/2016 by JamalArnold111 (1 review written)

Tried Gumtree instead of eBay and can honestly say what a sad world we now live in,foreigners wanting to barter you down to practically giving your goods away,people who can't spell or add 2 and 2 together and sad individuals who just message asking silly immature questions because their brain hasn't matured enough to work out the simplest things in life. If you value you're sanity then please avoid this site… Read Full Review

“What a horrible experience!”

Written on: 27/03/2016 by Simoneu83 (1 review written)

What a horrible experience! I have used Gumtree years ago and was very happy from the service! My mother posted a ‘free ad’ yesterday and a day after her account was blocked and the add removed. When she contacted Gumtree she was informed that ‘their decision was final’! There were no reasons of why the add was removed nor why the account has been blocked. The ‘live chat’ advisor was not helpful at all. She advised that the account has been blocked but said that she does not have… Read Full Review

“Paid for my advert never go live”

Written on: 24/02/2016 by HannahRuth2016 (1 review written)

I feel like i have to share with everyone my experience with this website. I paid for an advert that was showing 6.99 and they charge me from my paypal account 12 £. Once i finish payment and i try to check my advert, was automatic removed. I contact them through their email address and they respond to me when i mentioned that i opened a dispute through paypal, saying to me that i have broke the rules. How come i broke the rules since my advert goes automatic in removed section? I must say… Read Full Review

“Serious Review”

Written on: 22/09/2015 by moorlander (1 review written)

It is so sad that GT have let themselves hit rock bottom with their out of date methods. We became concerned when there were very few replies to our advert. We then advertised throughout every area of gumtree in the uk. The results were not a surprise to us though, considering the uk covers millions of people looking for work, we only received 6 replies from the whole of the uk which proves that GT IS NOW A NON STARTER. if you want plenty of replies from serious people, use another site … Read Full Review

GT is not fit to operate in the UK, when I read all the reviews here and on other sites, they are so hated yet they do not understand. They are a bit like VW as they have screwed up with the general public, do not use them
