Gumtree reserves the right to remove any ad that we feel is not relevant, or of value to the Gumtree community, with or without notice to the ad poster.
There are several ways that your ad may be found to be in breach of policy and removed from the site including:
- Your ad has been reported to us.
When this happens your ad may be temporarily suspended until we review it.
- Your ad has been removed by our moderation tools
In most cases we email you to let you know when we have had to remove your ad. These emails sometimes get directed to junk folders so please look out for Gumtree emails. You may wish to add Gumtree to your safe senders list if you have one.
If you have checked out all of these possibilities and none of them apply to your ad then please let us know by clicking on "Contact Gumtree" located bottom of help pages and we'll be happy to help you out.
