Ex-Tesla owner creates free online resource for UK Tesla community
Tesla has had a significant amount of growth in the last few years in the UK. So much so, that the Tesla Model 3 has become the best-selling new vehicle for the month of April.
As semi-early adopters of Tesla in the UK, we decided to get our Model S in 2016. We had 3 incredible years with the car but as the family grew, we decided to sell it for a bigger and more comfortable family car.
We started trying to sell our car on Tesla forums, where people list vehicles or parts that they own and are looking to sell.
These forums were a clear miss, as they were littered with unorganized content. Even though our post received some interest, it was quickly overpassed by other people selling charging cables, and car covers.
We felt that our listing deserved more attention than it received, we were selling a fantastic car for a great price.
We were recommended by friends to post our car on an online marketplace called Autotrader but realized that it would cost us 40 pounds for a simple 2 week advert.
Our experience taught us that the Autotrader audience was more focused on finding petrol vehicles rather than electric cars.
Our paid Autotrader listing got very little interest, and after two weeks our listing had expired. We tried our luck uploading to other free online car websites but also were not successful.
Our frustrations with the sale of our Tesla pushed us to create the platform we needed, a free Tesla-only marketplace that is efficient and effective.
UsedTeslaWorld is the easiest way to sell your Tesla or parts in the UK. You can add your Tesla vehicle, or any parts completely free.
Seller listings are published directly to an audience of Tesla enthusiasts, people who care and understand the value in buying a Tesla. Any interested buyer can contact you privately, also for free.
We hope to continue helping the Tesla community by providing value with a resource that is free and continues to support a sustainable way of transportation.
