Very poor website in comparison to market leaders such as Ebay. Site fails to update regularly & displays advert information incorrectly. Results which should be filtered are not filtered properly & if you dont put a location for your advert the website aasumes you are in Wales! In addition the Friday Ad group are renowned for their ruthless sales tactics & have an extremely high staff turnover because of this. Another point is this company is extremely harmful to the environment, tonnes of paper is used to print their free papers, much of which is wasted in the print process. These free papers litter the streets in particular with the leaflets contained inside. then when it comes to customer service, the only company I have ever dealt with which is worse is Safestyle Windows, with call centeres in India who cant understand a word you say, & an attitude geared towards relieving you of your hard earned money. steer clear - stich to the market leaders.
Fridayad.co.uk is the online version of the Fridayad magazine.
When you first go onto friday.co.uk you will see the main colour of the site is green which is the colour of the Friday Ad logo. This site is very easy to use and find what you want. To left hand side of the page is a list of areas. Once you click on your area it will take you to a new page. At the top of the page is a search bar which you can type in what you want to find, next to that is a drop bar where you can select your category such as computers and gardening, then next to that is another drop bar where you select how many miles you want to search within, this is a very important option because you dont want to be travelling too far.
If you type something in the search bar you want for example 'playstation' then it will then go to a new page showing all the items which match your search. To left of the page you can refine your search even more for example you can choose your price range.
This website is very handy because it saves a journey to the shop to pick up the magazine version. You can use this site to buy cars, properties and look for jobs. Also whereas your local Friday Ad magazine is items local to your area, if you are willing to travel you can use this site to find items nationally.
In conclusion, this is a very good site for finding items and is very easy to use.
Friday-Ads is a useful free magazine where you can both buy and sell. The fact that it is published in local areas is great because it is generally easy to view your prospective purchase before buying. It also works well for the seller in so much that you do not have to bother with posting etc.
You can pick up a new copy every week from various shops, garages etc in your area.
The advertisements are varied with both second hand and new items for sale, and local services and situation vacant are also featured.
I have used the Friday-Ads several times for selling with quite a good success rate.
It is very easy to register and place an order on line with a selection of displays for your advert. The best bit is that if you can keep your advert to 20 words it is FREE. The free option is a limited circulation but for a small fee you can go to a wider readership. This is full explained on their website when placing your order including the fact that your item also will be placed on the internet.
The advert will be confirmed by e.mail and it will be displayed for one week. Another e.mail will be sent after a while to see if you have made a successful sale. If you have well that is fine but if not you can easily readvertise again or make changes if you want to.
If you have never tried Friday-Ads it might be just the place to sell that unwanted item, or pick up a bargain locally.
Friday-ad.co.uk is brought ot us by the same people who do the Friday-Ad magazine that you can get free from the off-licence, takeaway etc, and has loads of bargains to bid for. There's pretty much a wide range of items, from fridge freezers to cars, all going for ridiculous prices. A fiesta was recently advertised for £1 - that's right, £1!!!!!! The site is easy to work your way round as the items are all in catergories - toys, cars, antiques, electrical etc. Once you find something you want to bid for, it's easy to place a bid and see what other people have been bidding. The downside is that a lot of the items tend to be for auction down south - ie London, Kent etc, so you might have to spend a fortune in petrol to get your bargain item. When you place a bid you're only bidding to look at the item, you're not entering a contract to buy it, so you can change your mind if you want to. There are some good bargains to be had, but like I say it may mean travelling a long distance until more people start to use it.
There are many classified web sites but this is the one I always use and ill tell you why. This is the only one i have come across where you don't have to wade through advert after advert that are from people at the other end of the country With Friday-ads you choose the area of the country you want the adverts to relate too so if you just want them relating to your local area that is what you choose or if you want them a bit further away then that's your choice Another reason why i use it is they tell you which adverts are new today very clearly so you can be first in the queue if your looking for something specific I use it a tremendous amount and have found some wonderful second hand bargains before anyone else as i get to see them before the paper is published You can also place an ad online too. im not quite sure why the have a webcam link to there offices on there though the address is www.friday-ad.co.uk
