Sorry to say that gumtree is run by idiots with a complete lack of good customer service. That is why I get tweets everyday with warnings not to use them as they are useless. The biggest warning is never ever spend money with them. Gumtree is living in cloud cuckoo land

I have had similar problems with ads being deleted, the staff are just s-c-u-m, not interested in a good service It seems that advertisers and buyers alike no longer bother with them, they have such a bad reputation, I would not want my company to be linked to them,

the site is not transparent. Would you buy a product with no price shown only to be told the price at checkout ? nobody would but thats what gum tree expect you to do. Try placing an advert with gumtree and you get to checkout you are presented with a price to pay, nothing is said prior, they just want you to waste your time which is a bad habit of gumtree. They should be 100% transparent if they are to get any credibility, it stinks of a sham site now, the management must be pretty thick to think potential customers are so gullable, pathetic bunch

I look for a professional company I can trust when advertising and gum tree has proven time and time again they are not professional nor can they be trusted.

“Misleading and False”

Written on: 27/07/2014 by SAbdullah (1 review written)

I was lured to Gumtree with the promise of a free ad. When I had placed it, the 'free ad' had suddenly become payable, as they claim 'only £ 8'. Their promises are false, misleading or probably outright fraudulent. My advice to potential users: stay away!… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2014

same as the previous review, grossly misled by gumtree, they want money for everything and frankly the site is not good enough to spend money with.

The site no longer has any appeal and its mostly due to bad staff, bad replies, not being interested in customers and of course highly inflated prices to place an advert. As responses to adverts are at an all time low, who in their right mind would spend with them, very few I would imagine, they are in ever decreasing circles
