August is a significant month for South Africans; it’s Women’s month. And for us at Weelee, that means paying attention to what women want when selling cars online (not only in August but all year round). We also proudly launched Weelee in Cape Town in August which we believe is a good omen. This much-anticipated expansion plan will now extend our innovative offering to more of our fellow South Africans and for more of you to be part of the Weelee journey.
Much like current online trends, selling cars online is not only rising in popularity but is fast becoming the go-to option and trusted alternative. Throw Weelee into the conversation and you have a proudly South African solution.
Last year we got all nostalgic and went vintage in celebrating Women’s Month. This year we decided to look at why savvy and smart South African women are choosing Weelee when selling their used cars online.
Reason #1 – Because we’re all about caring
Women are nurturers. Nurturing is an empowering force that has transformed society for centuries, impacting decisions, choices and behaviour.
“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to nurture, create and transform.” -Diane Mariechild
First and foremost, our Weelee team priorities you, the customer. We may be an online platform, but behind each and every screen is a team of caring individuals who are ready to serve our clients and engage with you every step of the way.
We also care about who will buy your car, that is why only our vetted, pre-approved and reputable dealers will have access to bid on your car.
This trifecta relationship – you, our team and our dealer – transforms our car selling platform and results in success stories with heart. Selling cars sucks, and so we are intentional about making sure your experience is a positive one.
Reason #2 – Because we’re all about keeping our word
Women are truth-sayers. They value honesty and integrity in every aspect of life – relationships, mothering, friendships, parent-teacher conferences and the workplace.
“There’s just some magic in truth and honesty and openness.” -Frank Ocean
We completely agree and keeping our word is sacred to us. We intend on keeping our promise that you are guaranteed the best deal when selling your car online. The reason for this assurance is our innovative 24-hour bidding platform where our 1000s of dealers compete for your car, pushing up the price. We also promise that the process is free and will not cost you anything.
Reason #3 – Because we’re all about saving you time
Women are multi-taskers. These superpowers are what set women apart as they juggle their many roles while on the go.
“The secret to multitasking is that it isn’t actually multitasking. It’s just extreme focus and organization.”
This is where our Weelee platform comes into its own when selling cars online.
You can sell your car anywhere and anytime; while you’re breastfeeding, waiting in the doctor’s or dentist’s rooms, in between meetings, in the school car parking lot or while in the takeaway coffee queue.
Speaking of queues – you also get to skip them when selling your second-hand vehicle – saving you even more time. Our Weelee online process is so simple, streamlined and user-friendly, it will only take you a few minutes to upload your car.
Reason #4 – Because we’re all about keeping you safe
Women are protectors. A woman’s natural and courageous instinct is to protect others from harm. Women’s month highlights the indictment on our country when it comes to abuse against women and our communal responsibility in making sure women feel safe.
“Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.” -Barbara Kingsolver
Our Weelee team is completely on board in doing what we can to keep you safe when selling your car on our platform. Your online safety is our #1 concern. We use 128 bit SSL encryption technology to keep your details private and anonymous. Your car’s number plate will also be blurred. Only once you decide on a final bid, will we disclose your details to that dealer.
Reason #5 – Because we’re all about keeping you empowered
Women are savvy. When faced with hard things, they get on and do it. Empowerment is all about being entrusted with accountable control and respect.
“A strong woman looks a challenge dead in the eye and gives it a wink.” –Gina Carey
Our Weelee commitment to you is that you are in control of the entire process when selling your vehicle online. You will not be undermined or taken for a ride. The process is entirely obligation-free which means you, and only you, decide which bid to accept. But you can also walk away at any moment; you do not have to accept any bid. Your choice. Your decision. And you have our Weelee backing and support all the way.
At the end of the day – selling your car sucks. That is why we are all about ‘ubuntu’ – that common feeling of humanity and family – when you sell your used car on our online platform.
As a Weelee customer, you come first and we are with you, for you and behind you all the way. Your success is our success – It’s as simple as that.
