Freecycle was ok, then Yahoo realised they were sh*t at making money and tried to wring a few quid out of freecycle, hence them shifting to freegle.
Horses for courses, it is the human experience, in general the people you will meet are genuine, pleasant and helpful. Watch for the usual sharks, don't be discouraged by idiots and try and make a difference!
We replaced a downstairs loo, had to drag it to the tip & could not be arsed, banged it on freegle, 4 hours later a lovely couple picked it up a gave us 6 free range eggs as a thank you!
