AN ONLINE platform that helps customers find a buyer for their car from a network of hundreds of competing dealers has been rolled in Portsmouth.
Following a successful launch in January, tootle.co.uk has helped hundreds of people find a buyer for their car.
Tootle.co.uk, backed by a £1.8m seed funding round, launched to provide a platform to make selling a car safe, seamless and stress-free. There are no fees for sellers using tootle, and all dealer offers come through the platform, allowing sellers to choose which offer suits them best.
CMO of tootle Cara Whitehouse said: ‘Tootle.co.uk is turning the used car market on its head and putting sellers in charge. By enabling interaction with multiple dealers through one convenient platform, tootle puts an end to one-on-one negotiations and haggling, and ensures sellers can feel confident they’re getting a fair market rate for their car.’
Dominic Perks, tootle chairman and CEO of Hambro Perks, added: ‘Tootle is a great example of the disruptive businesses championed by Hambro Perks.
‘The used car market is worth £45bn every year – but it is filled with inefficiencies and frustrations for both sellers and trade buyers.
‘Tootle.co.uk’s match-making approach creates an elegant solution that truly benefits both sides of the marketplace.’
