Buying and selling used cars in South Africa can be a minefield for customers! Not only do prospective customers have to negotiate the scammers from the real McCoys, there is the potential pitfalls of financing and cash clearances that make transactions an arduous process! Recognising this, the concept of Weelee was born – An online platform that allows you to sell your car for the best price – in one quick, easy and safe process.
We believe in strict regulation and operate like a dating match website, only without the nasty surprises! In coming up with this concept, we decided to have some fun in finding a catchy name to baptize our online auto marketplace name. Needless to say, we get all sorts of misspellings, from wheely, Wilie to weelie. Even a Google Search of the word “Weelee”, will try and convince you to change your spelling. We can assure you, you’ve got the right search criteria, and certainly, the best online marketplace in South Africa to conveniently sell your used car to a genuine bidder.
Contrary to what you might think, Weelee was not founded by a Wynand Evert Ethan Lee or any of his direct descendants. It is the brainchild of a group of car enthusiasts keen on providing a solution to auto trading, and getting the best price for your pre-loved car. As our product offering is something different, we wanted to come up with a catchphrase that stands out from the crowd with a name that sticks in their mind. Many folks raised their eyebrows at nonsensical brand names such as Tinder™, Uber™ and Trivago™ when they first entered the market. However, look at their global success and popularity, and it is clear to see that their quirky name never hindered their growth. We asked ourselves questions such as, “which part of Uber™ lends its hand to transport”, or “what element of the brand name LG™ relates even remotely to electronics and appliances”? The truth is; whatever it translates to, a business name means nothing until it becomes a brand name! And so, after arguing over many variations, we settled with the fun and quirky name Weelee. Very easy to slip off the tongue, but not so straightforward to spell.
