This is Benjamin (you may know me from my personal account @MrDrunkenMobster). I’m not new to this community by any means, but this account is! Why? Because I sold out to “the man” and got a corporate dayjob, that’s why! And now I’m here to tell you about something that I hope at least some of yall are at least partially interested in.
Bumblebee Batteries is a company based in Gresham Oregon (just outside of Portland) that has been building and installing Hybrid batteries in a wide range of Hybrid cars since 2012. We build, test, refurbish, install, and recycle all kinds of hybrid batteries, and that has been our core business for many years.
However, over the past few years we have been accumulating many, many batteries which have absolutely nothing to do with that core business of building Hybrid batteries! We have been building up a stock of EV batteries so large that we have had to expand to a second and third warehouse space just to store all of these massive car batteries!
That’s where I come in. I was hired to build a Wholesale EV Battery Sales department from the ground up. We are aiming to compete with the likes of Battery Hookup, Battery Clearinghouse, GreentecAuto, and others, selling repurposed EV battery modules for all kinds of DIY applications (DIY EV’s, solar power storage, UPS, golf cart conversions, RV battery backups, go-karts, etc.).
I know that much of what we sell will be too large for esk8 use, but I know you guys and I love you guys so I wanted to have an excuse to browse the forum while I’m on the clock
(If my boss is reading this, that was a joke)
Our current sales platforms are:
This is our main website for sales of ready-to-install Hybrid batteries. Yes, the website is in desperate need of a face-lift. I have been told that we are having a brand new website built, and that will hopefully go live in a few months.
The current website doesn’t have a platform for the Wholesale EV Battery sales that I am in charge of, though I have been told that the new website will.
In the mean time, our second sales channel (where you can find all the yummy EV batteries I am talking about) is on eBay:
Currently there isnt much posted, and most of the listings are from before I was hired. I only just started this job, so give me a break here haha. There are literally tons of batteries in our warehouses that I (yes, just me) have to dig through, organize, catalog, research, photograph, write product pages for, and list for sale. It’s gonna take a while for the eBay store to really start filling up
Anyway, I feel like I have been rambling for too long (as usual, if y’all are familiar with my threads), so I’m gonna leave it here and open it up to questions/comments/requests/etc.
Since this is a vendor thread, and I am at work, I would prefer if this thread could stay a bit more serious than my usual threads Behave, gentlemen.
