Online car retailer Cazoo has launched its service in both France and Germany, less than two years after launching in the UK.
Cazoo owns and reconditions its cars before offering and delivering them to customers, with the entire process taking place online. Customers have access to high-quality, 360-degree images of the vehicle online, and the details of the car’s features and history. Each car comes with a full 7-day money back guarantee and a 12-month warranty.
Following its launch in both France and Germany today, Cazoo intends to grow its inventory to thousands of cars as it expands across Europe over the coming months as well as adding many new features to its EU proposition including buying cars directly from consumers, fully digital car financing and all-inclusive monthly car subscriptions.
Alex Chesterman, founder and chief executive of Cazoo, said: “We are very excited to have launched in both France and Germany today. We have reimagined car buying to make it simple and convenient whilst adding transparency and quality to give consumers total peace of mind when buying their next car.
“With Cazoo, you can purchase a used car entirely online, have it delivered to your door in a few days and have a week to make sure it fits your lifestyle. We have great teams in both France and Germany and look forward to expanding into further markets and delivering a new and best-in-class car buying experience to consumers across mainland Europe.”
Last month, Cazoo confirmed the acquisition of Swipcar, a consumer car subscription platform based in Spain.
Chesterman said: “Swipcar has built a market-leading car subscription marketplace in Spain adding hundreds of new customers every month. This deal will enable us to accelerate our launch plans in Spain and Italy, offering consumers the option of buying, selling, financing or subscribing to a car entirely online. I look forward to welcoming Julio and his team to Cazoo and to working with them to deliver the best experience to consumers looking for their next car in Europe.”
