Cazoo launches...delivering an entirely new way to buy a used car

  • Cazoo delivers better selection, value, convenience & quality to used car buyers
  • Used car buying now entirely online, delivered direct to your door within 72 hours
  • Cazoo makes used car buying the same as buying any other product online today
  • 150-point inspection, 7-day money-back guarantee and 90-day warranty included
  • More than 1,500 thoroughly reconditioned cars to choose from in stock at any time

Cazoo (www.cazoo.co.uk), the brilliant new way to buy a used car, has launched today bringing consumers better selection, value, convenience and quality when buying a used car. The new business, from Alex Chesterman the founder of Zoopla, is set to transform how 8 million used cars are bought each year by putting the entire process online and offering home delivery, much like buying any other product today.

Cazoo has launched with over 1,500 cars in stock, ranging from family SUVs to sporty hatches, including a wide range of electric vehicles. Cazoo owns all its cars and thoroughly reconditions each one to the highest standard at its 55 acre facility in the Midlands before offering them for sale. And with no forecourts or sales people, Cazoo passes the savings on to its customers, effectively ‘Amazon-ing’ the used car market.

Buyers can inspect high quality, 360-degree images from the comfort of their home as well as the cars features and history. Prices are fixed, so there is no haggling and customers can simply and seamlessly purchase or finance a car entirely online and have it delivered directly to their door in as little as 72 hours. Every car comes with a 7-day money-back guarantee, destined to replace the traditional 7-minute test-drive around the block. And if customers don’t love their car, Cazoo will collect it for free, no questions asked.

Cazoo cars come with total peace of mind having passed a thorough 150-point inspection and been fully reconditioned before being sold. All cars have recent MOTs and full-service history and each Cazoo car also comes with 7 days free insurance and a free comprehensive 90-day warranty and RAC roadside assistance. Cazoo offers all standard forms of car financing as well as collecting any part exchanges at the time of delivery for added convenience.

Alex Chesterman, Founder & CEO of Cazoo said: “The process of buying a used car is outdated and not fit for purpose for today’s consumer. Cazoo is reimagining used car buying to make it simple and convenient whilst adding transparency and quality to an industry which suffers from a lack of consumer trust. We take away the need to travel, to haggle, to spend countless hours at a dealership and to risk any buyer’s remorse. With Cazoo, you can purchase or finance a used car entirely online, have it delivered to your door in as little as 72 hours and have 7 days to make sure it fits your lifestyle. And if you don’t love your Cazoo car, we’ll come and collect it for free.”
