About us

Hello, we’re Cazoo and we’re transforming the way people buy used cars. We understand how much people love their cars but that they often don’t love the experience of buying one.

We buy only the best used cars and we lovingly recondition every single one to the highest standards. We deliver your car in as little as 72 hours and give you up to 7 days to get to know your Cazoo car and if you’re not completely happy with it, we’ll collect it for free.

We provide better selection, value, quality and convenience to give you total peace of mind when buying a used car. We think you should be able to simply and seamlessly purchase a used car entirely online much like buying any other product today.

How it works

Our values

To give you the best car buying experience, we stand by our key values. We are:

  • Customer obsessed - we put the customer first in everything we do. Every interaction matters. We want to be famous for delivering the best experience and wowing our customers.
  • Data driven - data is part of our DNA and drives all decision making. We are informed and results-driven. We seek insights and understanding that will help us improve and grow.
  • Fast drivers - we have an entrepreneurial passion for working at speed. We like to move fast and we don’t hang around. We make decisions and drive fast towards our goals.
  • Team players - we are better as a team than as individuals. Everyone counts. We’re inclusive, supportive and respectful. We’re here to have fun and win together on this exciting journey.

We have a great team of over 330 staff who love their cars but are more passionate about delivering great customer experiences.
