What's so special about Preloved?

We believe in the power of second chances and new beginnings which is why our mission is to become the UK's most loved and trusted community of creators, buyers and sellers.

Preloved began in 1998 and has grown to become one of the largest classified advertising sites in the UK with hundreds of thousands of adverts in over 500 categories. We work hard to give our 7 million members a trustworthy buying and selling platform – check out our Trustpilot rating to see what they have to say about us.

It's simple

Preloved has no listing fees, no selling fees and you can upgrade your account to get extra benefits for as little as £5 a year.

No to auctions

If you are buying or selling second hand, we offer a great alternative to the hassle and expense of auction sites.

Made for buyers and sellers

We are made for both buyers and sellers. So, whether you're wanting to find a new home for your unwanted items, or bag yourself a bargain, Preloved can help.

Good for the planet
