  • There has been a breach of the rules
  • The pictures have uploaded incorrectly

If there are no problems with the advert, it should go live within four hours of posting. Should there be an issue, you can contact the customer services department by dialing the Gumtree telephone number.

Depending on location and category, your advert will have an expiry period which may be 30 days; however you should make sure that you check this.
