Newest Review: ... i tried another category only to get deleted again, then it came to light that they are really trying to drive me to pay to be featured or listed in a payed catergory, The thing is gumtree are a free ads site and so that's why i use it and i would assume that's why most others use it, but now it seems they want to delete ads that are placed in certain sections to drive you to another section, ... more

Gumtree are not the great website they are made out to be, i never really had an issue until a couple of weeks ago, when all of a sudden they started to delete my ads, baring in mind iv'e been using gumtree for some years now, so i know the procedure and my ads have been posted on a regular basis, but since a few weeks ago they keep deleting my ad, when i asked them why they say it's because i'm submitting my ad to the wrong category, but seen as iv'e been using gumtree for a few years i am pretty well certain it ain't in the wrong catergory, i'm a DJ so post under community then under the DJ's section, i tried another category only to get deleted again, then it came to .

I have been advertising on Gumtree as a dissertation tutor and proof reader for nearly 2 years using paid adverts and free adverts. I am aware that recently Gumtree have decided to change their policy for the service sector adverts and refuse adverts for dissertation writers. I am in agreement with Gumtree that these advertisers should not be given advertising space for such a business. I was amazed that Gumtree were allowing such to begin with. I have been a senior lecturer and dissertation marker at a UK university for 20 years and am continuing with the dissertation help part of that job and also proofreading. I do not write for students but am a tutor and proof ... Read the complete review

I think gumtree is fantastic, a couple of weeks ago I brought my son a wtp envy bmx bike for his birthday, my ex partner decided that I couldn't give it to him so I placed a 'swap' ad on gumtree, I was asking to swap the bike for loads of hugs and kisses from him knowing he was searching for one of these bikes...... after a few days he replied to my ad telling me how great he thought the bike was and to post more pictures of the bike and me and how he missed me and loved me :))) He now contacts me regularly through gumtree, I know it wont last because there ads are only listed for a short time!!Thanks gumtree.

I have been using Gumtree for a long time and there free adverts are great but i red there blurb about spotlight advertising, they say you can get up to 100,000 views on the blurb, so i thought great worth a shot , its £50 for 7 days so quite expensive for most sellers like me but i thought even if i only get 1% of what they say then could be worth it as that would mean 1000 views in seven says, well its been live now for two days and Ive had 21 views, i have tried contacting Gumtree about the very outlandish clams they are making but surprise surprise no reply, all i can say it use Gumtree for free adds but trust me (not there crazy statement of 100,000) don't pay.John

I'm reviewing GUMTREE. I think most people will recognise the name,but in case you don't, it is an online selling/buying site. Think ebay ,but without bidding and with a wider range of things on offer. For example you can advertise for flatmates on there,rent out property ,advertise services, sell /buy animals. __________________________________________________ ****WHY I USED IT**** To sell items I no longer needed but knew someone would be happy to buy, and to buy something I couldn't afford as new. I also use a 'freecycle' site for passing on items,but some things WILL bring in a few ££££s and that being the ... Read the complete review
