Preloved began in 1998 and has grown to become one of the largest classified advertising sites in the UK with hundreds of thousands of adverts in over 500 categories. The website has over 6 million registered members, who can sell their items for free, with no catches. One of Preloved missions is to help reduce the amount of household furniture that goes to landfill, and making people aware of the merits of reusing and recycling. Preloved is great if you’ve got a new house or flat and you can only afford to buy second hand. Preloved recommends upcycling items purchased on the website to give them a new lease of life and to fit in with your room schemes. A lick of paint, or a bit of sanding later and you’ll be so proud of your new Preloved furniture.
