Freeloved is as it says on the tin, it is Free previously loved items. In the past few months there has been almost a 40% increase in people searching free items. The truth is who can blame them!

Why Do People Give Stuff Away On Freeloved?

Don’t be put off and think that people only list items that are falling apart on Freeloved. Typically our members list items on Freeloved due to moving house and not having space for their new items. Meaning that they can’t take them with them but are in a rush to get rid of them.

These tend to be where you get those real steals! That or they are clearing out their space, and are looking to give back to the community.

Some items might have some cosmetic damages that can be fixed, which is why it’s important to take note of the description.

When looking at what is currently on Freeloved there is such a HUGE variety of products. With people selling tumble dryers, to steel bins, a common item on there seems to be sofas. Which saves you having to do a 3 year direct debit to get that new sofa for your lounge.
