WHY

i am Cartopia

You may know us better as SellYourCarUK so to explain why we've changed our name, please read this open letter from our CEO & Founder of Cartopia, Nikki Cowan.

Dear Member,

 

I started SellYourCarUK in 2012 to help people sell their cars. I was very experienced in the motor trade and by dedicating my time to the task on your behalf, I was able to obtain you more money than part exchange would offer and with none of the hassle associated with selling your car yourself.

 

As time went on my network grew and I was being asked to do more for you than just sell your car. First was to source too and I was able to find new and used vehicles and negotiate the very best deals so you were now saving money by using me as well. Again with none of the hassle associated with sourcing for yourself.

 

It wasn’t just sourcing and selling cars though. In my time as SellYourCarUK I also built a network of valeters and detailers, bodywork specialists, dent repairers, service and MOT centres and garages, alloy wheel refurbishment experts, tyre suppliers, tint specialists, vehicle wrap companies, car transport and storage businesses and everything else car related you can think of.

 

I was offering these services to you when selling and sourcing your cars, to ensure vehicles were always supplied by us in the best condition possible. Both mechanically and cosmetically your cars were always second-to-none and delivered the very best R.O.I.

 

The business had grown and was now employing staff and drivers, as well as running a fleet of courtesy cars for you to use while your car was with us. We collected your car for whatever needed doing to it, dropped it back when we were finished and left you a car to drive in the meantime.

 

More recently I have been being asked for this help regardless of whether I was selling or sourcing someone’s car and so it soon became clear that the name SellYourCarUK didn’t reflect the vast services being offered.

 

It was while having dinner with some great clients, that it became apparent that what was being offered was a dreamland for car owners. Where everything was taken care of, was the best value for money, was the best quality and was handled hassle free. The term coined was a Cartopia and the service was now defined as Your Car Concierge.

 

And so that’s where I am today. And that’s why… I AM CARTOPIA.

 

As a valued customer of SellYourCarUK I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to your membership and I look forward to being your first port of call for all things car related.

 

Warmest regards,

 

 

 

Nikki Cowan

CEO & Founder
