Absolutely useless. Not sure why the developers bothered with this.
Had 10 bags of good quality books, games and clothes. I had a very poor response from the charities through this app, BHF said no and none of the other choices responded. I drove to my local BHF and showed them the goods, now thinking what I had wasn't something they wanted, however the local store were very thankful and took everything. In order for this app to work well, it needs a better response time and better integration with the charities it lists. It's a great concept but unfortunately for me it didn't yield any results.
I've bagged up freshly washed and ironed clothing, along with handbags and other times that have never been worn/used. I uploaded a photo of five+ bin bags bursting full of stuff and not one of the charities wanted the donations. The app then sends me an email suggesting I can take the donations to the local landfill instead. Right. So, don't donate clean and good quality stock to charity, take it to the dump instead? 🤔 I've seen the donated stock first hand in local charity shops and can't understand why any of them would refuse my donations.
Its a nice app and idea. However no responses from charities despite offering items of very significant value. Given multiple similar reviews indicates something not right. Not recommended.
The app itself is fine, however despite the charity 'accepting' the donation and being told that they would contact me to collect it I never heard anything from them. If the charities themselves aren't willing to get involved with the app it renders it pointless. Such a pity. Maybe being able to contact the charity / arrange the collection etc through the app itself (rather than via email) might make the charity more likely to actually engage!
Complete waste of time. Charities will not collect via this app, they'll accept and never collect or reject outright. It's an immense shame, but now my donations will go to landfill instead.
This update includes some small bug-fixes and improvements.
