What started as an effort to help friends save time and find deals has developed into a powerful website for anyone searching for snowmobiles for sale. Sled Finds does the work of finding and displaying almost every used snowmobile on the internet along with helpful tools to compare and shop for the perfect sled.
As the percentage of used snowmobiles on the market continues to go up, combined with an increasing number of places people post their listings (e.g. Craigslist, Kijiji, Facebook Marketplace, MySpace Classifieds), Sled Finds was inspired by several real estate sites to build something similar and better for those looking for a used sled.
The developers of Sled Finds are hoping to fill the void between generic classified sites that can be difficult to search and snowmobile-specific sites that, despite a better focus and design, have very few active listings to work from. The search technology continues to improve, resulting in a real alternative to other industry sites that consist of little more than dealer inventory and lots of obtrusive ads.
Whether actively shopping for a used snowmobile or just dreaming about your next sled, the whole purpose for the site was to make the process easy and fun. The entire interface is built around interactive maps that automatically display listings from multiple sources. Visitors are not required to fill out long forms or even know ahead of time exactly what they are looking for. They can simply browse, sort and filter as much as they wish without having to navigate to multiple pages.
At the same time, the system includes several smart and powerful features behind the scenes. Constant indexing of the web brings in hundreds of new listings throughout the day while real-time price comparison charts remove guesswork in knowing how much to pay for machines. Algorithms to filter duplicate, spam or dealer listings along with intelligent extraction of attributes like model year, mileage and color are other examples.
Whether looking for something specific like a Ski-doo for sale, or just a good trail snowmobile, the site has proven addictive to early users.
