Founded by Steve Oliver, 43, and Walter Gleeson, 48, this Cheshire company buys unwanted CDs, DVDs, electronics, games and branded clothes from consumers using its Musicmagpie website and phone app. Customers get an instant price for their goods, which the company resells in more than 150 countries. Those who only want to de-clutter can arrange for the proceeds to be sent to a charity. The firm has recently launched an American website, Decluttr.com, and an online used-fashion brand, BradleyStreet.com. Sales reached £84.2m last year.
