Let us know what you think – New Features – RSS Feeds

Posted in Press Related,Website Updates by Wheels Near U Team on the September 3rd, 2007

We are spending a lot of time improving this website for you – the users, we aim to make it as user friendly and efficient as possible. With this in mind we will keep developing the website, refining our current site as well as adding new features that will help you buy and sell in the local community.

Key to this progression is your opinions. If you think there is something obvious we should add – or are have any advice on how we could improve the site for you – let us know, we are open to all ideas and will give full credit to anyone who helps us perfect what we are doing. To get in touch you can call us on 01545 580 004, use the comments box on the right hand side of our homepage, or click here to use our on-line form.

In regards to our new features, in the coming months we intend to add two new catergories to our for sale listings – ‘Caravans and Motorhomes‘ and a Market place category which will provide a place to sell salvaged vehicles, second hand car parts, alloy wheels – anything second hand and wheel related that does not fit into our current catergories (Cars, Vans and Trucks, Motorbikes Bikes and Quads.)

In the run up to Christmas we will also be launching a Wheels-Near-U Shop, retailing all manor of wheel-related goods from Custom T-shirts and boiler suits to remote control cars! Easily purchased on-line from your local Wheels-Near-U.

 

RSS Feeds for cars for sale

Today however we have just added RSS feeds to our site, in the form of For-Sale listings. That is a feed of all new cars, bikes, lorries etc. added to the site. RSS feeds can be viewed in your email program or subscribed to, so you can get the cars in your local area delivered right into your email inbox!

Wheels-Near-U Launch Update

Posted in Ceredigion,General Announcements,Press Related,Website Updates by Wheels Near U Team on the August 14th, 2007

Used Cars, Second Hand Van? Truely Local Used VehiclesWheels-Near-U was launched just over two weeks ago and is already starting to stand on its own two feet (or wheels!)

Our Car section is now getting bigger by the day, with lots of local used cars for sale. To help improve the customer experience we have also split an overly crowded category (previously Plant/Commercial/Trailers) into two: Vans/Trucks/Lorrys and Plant/Trailers. This should help everyone find what they are looking for a little easier.

We have also introduced Local Agents – People within our local community that will list your vehicle from £5 fee – They will do all the work photographing, noting car/vehicle details and entering them on Wheels-Near-U, which saves you time and effort! Click here For more information on Local Agents.

Local News stories are also available – in the last fortnight we have written about local collector Dai Thomas’s collection and  added the photographs to the new Wheels-Near-U Gallery as well as started a weekly named ‘Motor Critic of the Week’ whereby we hand pick the best motoring quotes from the weeks media! All our news stories will appear on the homepage and our blog, and we are always looking for local authors to write for us – so if you would like to contribute – contact us here!

We have advertisements in several of the local papers in the motoring sections as well as several ads in the Monthly Advertiser. You may also have seen our signboards dotted around or heard our sponsored radio ceredigion drive time slot – by Mark Simon. Mark Simon has been providing some great motor themed radio with ‘Marks Motoring Monday‘ in which Mark randomly picks a vehicle from the site to promote! This Monday gave information about one of the cars for sale on Wheels-Near-U (2002 Vauxhall Corsa Club £2995.)

We would like to thank everyone that has helped so far and welcome comments and questions about Wheels-Near-U.
