    They are just a cash for gold type company... Pretty much
    Me thinks they are having a big push at the moment and trying too hard.
    5staff reviews today on glass door , coincidentally....
    https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/Vintage-Cash-Cow-Reviews-E1368221.htm

    Then there are the painful you tube reviews where vulnerable people are clearly reading from a script

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hTiFafAhzs4
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=O2JYxMfohbs

    And a 9.5 rating on trust pilot......I see they will remove reviews who refer to the price they offered..

    One of their previous companies compulsory strike off

    https://www.endole.co.uk/company/07831079/best-price-jewellers-ltd
    Best price jewellers limited -Leeds

    One of the co founders of " vintage cash cow " was head of marketing involved with the now discredited cash genie payday loan company.


    Also could it be possible they are offering customers discount codes for referrals

    Expect newbies..

    In this video the man says " they are a business that buy clutter" .its naive and gullible.


    You have to give the company your phone number and they say you can write a message telling them what stuff you've got-then they call you back - I've seen elsewhere that they say their target audience are 50+ and middle class but that's certainly not what the videos show.

    In fact in the Lovejoy books where he is a crook rather than a loveable rogue like the TV series portrayed him, he spent time knocking whenever he was short of money and would target older people who needed cash to extend their pension.

    I take it you are thinking of using them? So lets be completely honest. Companies like this take your items, and resell them for a healthy profit. This is how they make their money. They may or may not offer you a fair price.

    Why not just try and sell them yourself?

    Mmm Key board warrior ???? Think it more like trying to get publicity for the website??? Not by the Op who I actually think is asking a question.

    But jojojo55???? not sure, You joined today just to ask if the low opinions of the company where correct? Coincidence ????

    P.s Love the Keyboard warrior? ha ha made me laugh

    Slight difference though, jojo was paid to post here, were you?

    Im waiting for a box of items back for them,I already knew how much they were worth and was expecting a lower value.I have refused the offer they made to me because it would been giving them the things not really an offer as more of an insult.I also had another call from them but if I didn't get a fair offer from them in the first place then can't see the point in the call,I have already photographed my items so when I do get them back I will put them on Ebay.
