What are the Services for Hire policies?

The 'Services for Hire' sections are for businesses and commercial entities to submit postings advertising their services and not individual items/products for sale.

  • We don't allow duplicate ads (multiple ads advertising the same company's services). Duplicate ads are extremely frustrating to our users, as they bring no value to the categories in which they appear. Please post no more than one ad advertising your services. The repeated posting of multiple, duplicate ads may lead to a complete deletion of ALL of your ads and restriction of your use of Gumtree.
  • Ads offering financial services must use a valid business email address and contain a valid business landline number.
  • Since Gumtree is intended to be a local classifieds site, we do not allow ads for online stores or online services.

Ensure your advertisement isn't breaching any applicable government laws/legislations. It is the responsibility of the advertiser before posting an ad on Gumtree that content advertised adheres to Gumtree Posting Policies as well as applicable laws. As a condition of your use of Gumtree specified under our Terms of Use, you agree that you will not violate any laws.
