Poole Volvo named as Tootle’s latest recruit

Time 2:34 pm, February 3, 2017

CAR-sourcing platform Tootle has announced Poole Volvo as the latest addition to its platform of 2,000 dealers.

Tootle has gained popularity as a method of sourcing stock from the public, allowing professional dealers to browse cars being privately sold across the UK, make offers, and broker deals by phone and email.

James Litton, director of Volvo Cars Poole and a columnist for Car Dealer, said: ‘Tootle slots seamlessly in to our existing sourcing options, providing an interesting alternative to the conventional car-selling portals.’

Mike Bishop, Tootle’s chief operating officer, said: ‘It’s great to see dealers get real value from Tootle, as shown by Volvo Poole who purchased three vehicles in their first week alone.’

The platform has seen an explosion in popularity in recent months, and now counts more than 2,000 dealers on the platform from both the franchised and independent sectors.

Bishop added: ‘The fact that main dealers are joining the site really reflects the high quality of stock that we are able to offer direct from the public.

‘This is a pattern we look forward to continuing into 2017 as we bring further partnerships online and expand the range of stock that we offer.’
