Hi, welcome to the Preloved Media Centre.
Here you'll find our latest press releases, story suggestions, stats & facts and heaps of interesting stuff about the UK's leading second hand selling site. You can also sign-up to our regular newsletter, 'The Haggler'.
Every month we help thousands of our members turn their clutter into cash, and there's always something interesting, decidedly unusual or downright quirky being advertised for sale – from space hoppers and sailing boats, to classic cars and camping gear…
You can also sign up for our monthly newsletter – The Haggler. Packed with advice and information on how to snap up the best preloved buys, it's a monthly first-rate read for second hand fans everywhere.
Preloved was founded by Ian Buzer in 1998. It was designed as a small and friendly site where enthusiasts could buy, sell and chat about all things second hand. Word spread quickly and Preloved is now one of the largest classifieds sites in the UK with over 11 million visits every month.
Despite this success, Preloved is still run by a small team that what it lacks in numbers makes up for in its passion and enthusiasm for the joy of second hand.
Ian Buzer is the founder and Managing Director of Preloved. He answers some of the most common questions about the site.
