New Versus Vintage: Grab Yourselves a Preloved Bargain
Preloved is one of the leading lights for classified ads in the UK. Here at My House Removals, we love it. Not only does it provide a safe (often free) platform to sell your wares, it’s a downright enjoyable experience. Online shopping is much more interesting when you purchase directly from the seller. Why? Here are a few reasons you should go bargain hunting on Preloved:
A lot of sellers are using Preloved to get rid of things. That means they’re happy to part with it for a lower cost if it means waving goodbye to an item they no longer want. When you’re in the removals business, you realise that sometimes people will pay to have things chucked out! Their loss is your gain, so get browsing and see what deals they have to offer.
It’s a bargain for the buyers, and a good deal for the sellers as well. A private ad on Preloved is free – no strings attached. All that’s required is your time and a little photograph.
Maybe it’s just us, but the experience of shopping for existing possessions is very sentimental. Rather than cold, showroom-ready photographs, bargains are shown in their natural habitat; a sofa in use, a curtain in place, a desk overlooking a window. It feel more natural, and the transaction between seller and customer feels reciprocal.
Try as they might, John Lewis or Laura Ashley cannot sell second-hand furniture. Attempts have been made for that shabby, vintage sheen, but nothing beats the real thing. If your tastes lean towards that kooky, upcycled look, then Preloved is just the sort of place you want to go shopping. You can buy worn coffee tables, weatherbeaten benches and much-loved settees.
Go on, give it a try. Head over to Preloved and see what kind of wonders you can rustle up. Just ask your partner’s permission before ordering any livestock!
