Gumtree Press

About us

With millions of users every month, Gumtree is at the heart of recommerce culture in the UK.

We provide a practical, functional and trusted solution that allows our users to get what they need, when they need it. But more than that: our platform is, and always will be, a home for second-hand. Founded 20 years ago to help people share and pass-on; reusing, recycling and extending the life of goods is inherent to everything we do. We believe that everything can find new purpose, and it is our mission to make buying and selling second-hand simpler, safer and more enjoyable.

Our platform provides a microcosmic view of the British economy – with insight into everything from the property market, to employment and retail trends. Plus, we are uniquely positioned to provide insight into the sustainable behaviours being embraced by younger generations, who want to waste less and share more. 

We’re committed to building a recommerce culture in the UK. We believe it’s good for business, for society and for the planet.

Press boilerplate

Gumtree has been championing recommerce for the last 20 years; a community classifieds platform where people can discover, buy or sell second-hand goods and motors. You can also find listings for a huge range of jobs, properties to rent and buy, professional services, community events and much, much more.  With more than 1.7 million live ads at any one time, it’s not surprising that more than 11.6 million people visit the site every month.*
