How much do we all love pre loved buying, or buy sell sites though?
I know I do, there is always a bargain to be had and always something in my house that is unused and worth some money. There is sometimes however, the downsides to buying preloved items because you can never really know exactly what quality of goods you are going to get.
You know that awful feeling…. you know…. when you buy something on the local buy, sell, swap sites and you either go to collect or it is delivered and it is faulty or unclean and you think “whyyyy!!??” …. it is actually like throwing money down the drain!!! When you collect in person you can often feel a little awkward saying “sorry I don’t want to give you my money anymore because the toy you are about to sell smells a lot like cat wee”.
Now don ‘t laugh…. but this has actually happened to me
I handed over £20.00 for some toys that definitely once a cat’s litter box, I had to stop at the nearest bin and throw them away, as I couldn’t stand the smell in my car. So that day I basically I threw £20.00 plus petrol money in the bin because I didn’t want to offend the seller. I am sure I won’t be the only one that this has happened to.
Wouldn’t it be great if a person could vet all the toys before we buy them and make sure we don’t waste our money on “cat wee” smelling toys?
Great news!!!! There is such a site…. The Savvy Little Monsters Ltd was set up by a husband and wife duo and in essence is a pre loved selling site, but boy do they ensure quality and cleanliness. The Savvy Little Monsters Ltd ensure each product is fully safety checked and cleaned before you buy so it really is like buying brand new without the “brand new” prices.
The Face and mascots of the business are the ‘The savvy little monsters” themselves. These cartoon monsters represent the real life members of the family run business from the daddy monster to baby monster.
The Safety Monster (Dad) is responsible for the safety of each product. He ensures all products are checked for missing or broken parts and passed to, The Earth Monster (Mum) for re-sale once passed through quality control.
The Earth Monster is responsible for deep cleaning each product before re-sale. Ensuring any unsuitable products are taken out of circulation and sent to Terracycle for recycling. To look after the companies’ green footprint and to help make the Earth happy (yeah they also have a handy zero waste policy ensuring no unsafe products return back into the selling market).
The Insta Monster (Teenager) is responsible for making sure they are active on Instagram. To ensure products are promoted and that their followers grow and interact with them and the teenager also looks after their brand awareness. This actually makes me feel proud like I could have my little monster help grow our business one day.
Then there is The Fun Monster (baby) who is responsible for having fun and to oversee that the toys are drop, dribble and most of all Monster proof! I mean adorable overload and just amazing to include the whole family.
These monsters draw you in and relating them to the family makes the service that little bit more personal and relatable. You really feel like the second hand pre loved items you buy from them will be top quality, safe and clean as they come directly from a family who care and want to ensure the safety and cleanliness of each item. It really feels like the ethos of the business is ensuring high quality. If they would buy and use the product, then that is the only way they will sell it.
