Name for Car Buy/Sell Website

A few months ago I went to sell a car on Autotrader.

I uploaded the photos, wrote the description, and selected all the options…

Then, to my extreme irritation, I got this message:

That’s right, unless you are prepared to send Autotrader (as well as whoever they share data
your passport and a picture of yourself, you cannot place an ad!

I can only assume that Autotrader have been infiltrated by the surveillance state, because this seems to make no sense at all from a business point of view.

Anyhow, I personally REFUSE to participate in this kind of surveillance.

I was so irritated that I sent a message to our Web Developer, Adrian, with my intention to start a competitor to Autotrader that would:

1 – Be easier to use;

2 – Much cheaper (initially free);

3 – Would *never* ask for, or store customers personal information.

Anyway, several months on and we have a working prototype!

I’m not sure whether this car buying/selling site will be just for BTST Members, or whether it might “take off” as a true competitor to Autotrader.

Either way, we need a name for it!

Of course, it needs to be a name where the domain is available.

I’m thinking we need something catchy and memorable, but honestly, I’m drawing a blank.

BTST Member Competition:

I’d like to invite Members to suggest a name for the new website.

If we like one of the suggestions enough to use it, the winner will get a free TALEX Talk — the new “hands free” product we’ve been working on to protect Members from the harsh new laws on using your phone while driving.

All the best,

  1. Totally agree with the sheer bloody cheek of random websites expecting to have access to irrelevant private data – trust us with a copy of your passport so that you will be “safer” from identity theft! – but wouldn’t it be wiser to collect suggestions in a non-public manner? Doing it as blog comments makes it easy for domain squatters or any ar5eh0le looking for a laugh to blag the domain names as they’re suggested.

    • I like “flipyourwhip” although not sure how many people would get the “whip” slang… AutoTalex is interesting!

  3. Hi I had similar idea when EBay got silly and barred me for private sales.

    I would suggest you cal the site
    Private Sales
    Privacy Sales

    every day is a car day.
    £430 per year on Porkbun possibly cheaper on cloudflare is great but £1600 per year..

    Or just some uk domains

  5. Sorry don’t have time to read all the above ideas, so may be repeating…
