Camera to Convertible Swap Adventure

Swap with other Canadians, it's all FREE.

Help Swapsity member, Martin Provost, in his green quest to trade up to an eco-friendly Tesla Roadster by swapping his way behind the wheel. Martin's plans to swap his way behind the wheel have been featured on CTV, Metro Ottawa, Yahoo Canada and CBC radio and now it's your turn to get involved. Make a trade and Martin will take you on a spin!

  • Perks for traders!
  • Each of Martin's trade partners will receive a signed, framed photograph of the item they traded, be featured on his blog and get a mention on Swapsity. If Martin reaches his goal, he'll take anyone who traded with him for a ride in his Tesla Roadster, as long as they are in the Ottawa area.

  • Questions?
  • Is Martin open to trading with anyone in Canada?
    Yes! Martin is open to trades outside the Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal areas as long as the trade value justifies the effort and cost involved in executing the trade. Trades outside these areas can be coordinated through shipping or escrow services. You can always contact Martin via Skype or call him if there are any concerns.

    Is Martin interested in all trade offers?
    Martin would like to keep his trades focused on technology and green living but will consider all offers as long as he feels it is a trade-up and will help him reach his goal. Services will also be considered.

    What perks can I receive if I trade with Martin?
    Each of Martin's trade partners will be featured on his blog and get a mention on Swapsity. If Martin reaches his goal, he'll take anyone who traded with him for a ride in his Tesla Roadster, as long as they are in the Ottawa area.
