Safe Shopping

General:

Buyers should always inspect any item they plan to purchase, rent, borrow or use from the seller of any advertisement on this website in order to satisfy themselves as the consumer that the item is as described and will function as expected and is fit for purpose. Advertisers should make every reasonable effort to ensure the safety and functionality of any advertised item and the item description should clearly describe any defects, malfunction or known problem to make the consumer aware of any issue or potential issue in advance. FreeAdsUK.co.uk, the website owner(s) cannot take any responsibility for the guarantee of the safety, suitability, performance or description of any item advertised on the website or the user generated content of any advertisement within this website which includes but is not limited to advert photographs and images, advert descriptions, additional information and specifications, advertiser's contact details, advert titles, linked videos within adverts, advert location(s) and advertised price(s).

 

Business Advertisers:

Any advertiser acting as a business, commercial trader, registered company or otherwise, should make clear their business status within the advert. Opportunity to do so is offered within the product description where business advertisers are obliged to state their business status and business contact details. Business sellers are bound by their regular requirements under UK and/or EU law which may include but are not limited to: Distant Selling Regulations, Warranties, Guarantees and VAT.

 

Pets:

Animals are living creatures and should be treated with respect and cared for properly. Always do your research before committing to owning a pet. If you are not sure or in any doubt about your ability to provide proper care for any animal you should not consider acquiring a pet via our classified adverts nor any other source. Talk to a pet professional before committing to providing a home for any animal.

 

General:

Do not send money using wire-transfers. This payment method is often hard to trace and do not offer refunds if your item is not genuine or not received.

Always meet the seller/buyer in a public place and show vigilance with regards carrying cash or high-value items with you.

 

Research the seller:

You should always look for signs that you person or company from where you source your items online is reputable. With regards pets, always ask to see a baby animal's parents where possible and speak to others who have been provided with a pet animal from the person or company.

 

Remember: If you are in any doubt we always recommend not proceeding with any purchase. We will always try and help you - Contact us with your questions or concerns at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
