Only been on Preloved for 4 days and just sold my sixth item. Dealing in second hand (model railways) and equipment, got disillusioned with Ebay. Nice to deal with people on the telephone here and make some new acquaintances. Look forward to selling more to nice people.
my story is brief and not very unusual but i bought a caravan on preloved and it is fantastic,i am totally thrilled with it so much so that i use it on my drive to have my tea in and will go in it just for a coffee and relax. thanx preloved,cant wait to go away properly. xxx
Brought a boxer puppy off Preloved and we are so happy with her, she is part of out family so thank you Preloved x
Last year we advertised two beautiful New Forest Ponies on Preloved. I chose the site because it was recommended to me by a close friend who had enjoyed success selling various horsey bits and pieces - I had not heard of it before then but placed a free add - well two actually. It was great to be able to write as much as I wanted and attach several pictures.
I posted a link to the advert on the New Forest Pony page on Facebook as well. We received loads of emails from potential buyers who came directly from the Preloved listing as well as a family who followed the link from Facebook. Within a month we had done several viewings and the ponies were both sold together to a wonderful home. Although the buyer had found the PreLoved listing from the Facebook link she contacted me through Preloved as she was also an existing member. We were all very happy and have kept in close touch and have made great new friends as a result!
So this year when I wanted to sell a saddle my first thought was Preloved! I joined as a full member to access the benefits of unlimited pictures,
choice of backgrounds and quicker response times as I also wanted to find a horse to loan and needed to be able to reply to new adverts straightaway!
I received dozens of emails about the saddle and eventually after a couple of weeks was contacted by a young lady who lives only a few miles from us. I was able to take the saddle to her to try and she was delighted. We agreed the sale and she collected the saddle the following week. She was also delighted as she had been able to sell her existing saddle through Preloved during the week and paid cash and the full asking price for ours!
All in all a great experience and far more straight forward and less hassle and uncertainty than EBay! Thanks Preloved! I am currently mooching around the house to see if there is anything else we can sell and will definitely use Preloved again! A few quid for full membership very well spent!
Just to let you know my advert for the sale of my motorbike was successful. Many thanks
