In March 2000, at the height of the dotcom boom, two entrepreneurs by the name of Simon Crookall and Michael Pennington had an idea to set up a classified ads website for Aussies, Kiwis and South Africans arriving in the city. That was when the Gumtree community was born, as thousands flocked to the site to find somewhere to live, a bit of furniture, and a job to pay for it all.
Some 19 years later, Gumtree.com is part of the eBay Classified Group and is the UK’s number one classifieds site, spanning the entire length and breadth of this fine nation. With nearly a million new ads on the site each week, and a whopping 16.4 million visitors every month, we pride ourselves on being the go-to place for everything from iPhones to cars, jobs to flats, and even lodgers dressed as walruses!
We’ve also come a long way from being just a desktop site with over 9.5 million people having downloaded our app to their mobiles and tablets in search of success!
On top of this, getting in touch with us has never been easier. We’re busy on social media, with over 520,000 fans on Facebook and a busy Twitter account available during the working week. Our Customer support team are also available on live chat between the hours of 9am and 9pm every day of the year.
We continue to grow and improve, but we’re still sticking to our original aim of creating successful connections between people just like you and me!
