If you’re not much of an online shopper, the prospect of buying a car online can feel a little daunting at first. But when you compare it to the hassle of visiting a dealership and haggling over the price, it can be quite the opposite.
When you're browsing cars online, make sure the seller has provided a thorough description of the car’s features and specifications and that any cosmetic imperfections are highlighted. Depending on a used car’s age and mileage, general wear and tear is to be expected, but any further damage should be made clear to you before you go ahead with the purchase.
At Cazoo, all our used cars have passed a mechanical and safety check before they appear on our website and our car standards checklist gives you full details of what we look for. Every car on our site has a detailed photo gallery that allows you to see it from a variety of angles – we highlight imperfections, if there are any, so you know exactly what to expect when your car arrives.
It’s also worth checking out testimonials from other customers before purchasing a car online. Searching Trustpilot reviews is a handy way to determine whether the car retailer is reputable and trustworthy.
