Bakkies, Braai’s and Weelee – A Proudly South African Mix

Weelee sell your bakkie

Heritage Day (aka National Braai Day) is a big deal in South Africa. Throw bakkies and Weelee into the conversation and you have a truly South African mix. And no matter how much beer and biltong you have consumed, there comes a time when the discussion turns to selling your bakkie – either because you are emigrating, the family is growing or you are looking to upgrade.

According to South African History Online: “When people talk about South African heritage, they might be referring to anything from famous stretches of coastline in KwaZulu-Natal, to shweshwe fabric, to Bunny Chow. Heritage is therefore something quite personal. Yet heritage also includes that which is part of the national consciousness.”

There is nothing more part of our national consciousness than the bakkie – a ubiquitous South African icon. And so selling your bakkie requires a proudly South African partner in this venture. (You don’t just let anybody drive your bakkie and so you don’t just let anybody sell your bakkie; you Weelee it!) Well, that is what the ‘manne’ around the braai are saying.

The much-loved braai brings families, friends and communities together. In the same way, Weelee’s innovative online platform is bringing people together with the common goal and positive experience of selling their cars and bakkies online. 

Bakkie talk

We have talked about bakkies before. They rank high on the list of the most popular second-hand vehicles for sale – and often appear on our radar. From the farming and 4×4 sector to the everyday family urban vehicle, used single- and double-cab bakkies are always in demand. The sustainable turnover of these trusted workhorses means that you should make sure you get the best cash price when the time comes to sell your bakkie. 

As an innovative online car selling platform, Weelee is perfectly positioned with 1000s of pre-approved and reputable dealers who are waiting to bid on your bakkie,  guaranteeing you the best deal possible. 

Braai talk

A lot of talk happens around a braai and ‘Selling my bakkie’ is just one of the topics of conversation, second only to rugby and whether the coals are hot enough! Guys who have sold their bakkies on Weelee are quick to share their stories of how much more they got than the book value or trade-in value. (Of course, the numbers might be slightly exaggerated depending on how many beers have been consumed).😉

Weelee, sell your bakkie
