Everyone knows about Ebay and it’s global dominance in the market but I’ve been turning to the more local and community feel of Gumtree.
It covers the extent of the UK and supply’s local free listings and ads for goods and services in your immediate area. The revamped site is clean and very comprehensive with listings for a wide range of categories from accommodation, vehicles, jobs, dating and of course a massive For Sale section. Adding your own listing is a breeze with helpful tips and hints on the best ways to present your item plus it’s free to place an advert for 120 days. There are additional forums, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube feeds all adding to the community feel. On a downside I found it a bit slow to actually post my advert but it’s so easy to use that this is minor in the scheme of things. Also try Ad Trader if you fancy another view!
