We also provide rather clever ad alert services to potential buyers, which mean that, quick as a flash, they'll be notified if you're selling an item they want.

It's free to sell - Preloved has no listing fees, no selling fees and no catches.

It's Local - Preloved aims to connect you with local people that share your common interest and passion for second hand. We hope that you not only grab yourself a second hand bargain, but that you'll make a friend in the process.

It's all about second hand - we're firm believers that second hand isn't second best. Most items listed on the Preloved site are second hand, meaning that there are some great value items to be snapped up.

It's good for the planet  - selling second hand is one of the most effective ways to recycle. By finding a new home for your unwanted items, you are cutting down on unecessary manufacturing and landfill.

It's kind to kittens - because of its friendly, local nature, Preloved is a great place to find a loving home for a dog, cat or other animal. Preloved takes the issue of animal welfare very seriously. To find out more, visit our animal welfare pages.

We have made it even easier with the new Preloved app, you will be able to create adverts in a matter of seconds to share locally and nationwide, access messages on the go, and find great bargains and free stuff in your local area.
