The leading automotive consumer website, HonestJohn.co.uk, has teamed up with Tootle.co.uk, another website that puts consumers first. The aim of this partnership is to introduce HonestJohn’s huge audience of 2.6 million in-market car buyers to Tootle’s unique platform.
Tootle puts consumers in control of the way they sell their cars, for the first time. It gives its users the power to choose between bids from competing dealers nationwide, providing power to the consumer to choose from a range of offers before agreeing the best deal.
Tootle has a network of over 2,000 carefully vetted car dealers, who bid against one another for your vehicle, removing the hassle and haggling out of selling your car, while all done from the comfort of your own home (or phone).
Nine out of 10 offers that car owners receive through Tootle come through in under 48 hours Once offers are received, sellers can choose to submit a counter-offer or accept the current amount, so power is entirely within their hands. Once accepted the buyer and the seller arrange collection or drop-off.
Tootle stands apart in that sellers receive genuine offers to buy rather than the ‘online valuations’ common on other sites. Unless the seller misrepresents their vehicle, the price you’re offered is likely to be the price you’re paid on handover.
Behind the scenes, Tootle’s network of approved dealers spans across the country, covering large main dealer networks, car supermarkets, independent dealers and specialists who focus on very specific makes & models. Even, if your car is financed or on PCP you can still get a great deal and enjoy the full support as the dealer settles your car finance directly.
Listing and selling a car is free and only take a few minutes; you receive multiple competing offers straight to your phone, tablet or PC; and in 95% of cases, the car is collected direct from the seller’s home or office. Tootle will help you through the sales process and you will only be contacted by interested buyers that have actually made an offer on your car. The process is designed to be safe, secure and reassuring so that you’re comfortable with every step of the sale. Tootle accepts offers on cars up to 10 years old.
HonestJohn.co.uk’s Commercial Director, Sarah Kenvyn, said: “Honest John is a brand that is very much focused on getting the best deal and best service for consumers, and Tootle makes the perfect partner to that. Getting a good deal is not just something you do when buying a car, but when selling it, too, and the partnership means anyone looking to sell their car can get a fair, honest and realistic sale. That’s in perfect alignment with HonestJohn.co.uk’s own core values.”
Amy Buckley, Digital Director for Tootle.co.uk commented, “Honest John are extremely selective in the partners they work with to ensure only the very best services are offered to their audience. We see this partnership as a strong endorsement for Tootle and look forward to the future together as we continue to build transparency, fairness and ease-of-use for sellers and dealers alike.”
