Gum Tree - UK's favourite classified site
Gumtree.com is the largest, free, classified advertising website in the UK. It was started as a community site in London in March 2000 by Michael Pennington and Simon Crookall. Since then, it has expanded to 60 cities across the UK, Ireland, Poland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Gumtree.com was acquired by eBay in May 2005.
It has become our favourite site to search for accomodation for friends who are coming over the UK for furthering their studies like us. I am also looking for jobs on it. Every day, there are also a lot of ads where people are giving away their stuff for free. The only thing is that you have to go and pick it up from them.
Do check out their list of Gumtree users' favourite ads! Should bring a smile to your lips if not rotflol.
