European online car retailer Cazoo expanded into Spain Thursday (May 12), allowing customers in that country to access a fleet of reconditioned vehicles, buy them online and have them delivered to their doors, according to the company press release.
Cazoo customers can review 360-degree images and the details of a car’s features and history, and if a customer is unhappy with the vehicle, Cazoo will collect it at no charge within the first seven days. Per the release, every Cazoo vehicle in Spain comes with a seven-day money-back guarantee and a 12-month warranty.
Cazoo, which was founded in 2018 by British entrepreneur Alex Chesterman, has sold more than 65,000 cars in the U.K. since its launch two years ago. It launched in France and Germany in December and plans to expand to Italy later this year, as well as grow across other European markets.
“We have reimagined car buying to make it simple and convenient whilst to give consumers total peace of mind when buying their next car,” said Chesterman. “With Cazoo, you can purchase a used car entirely online, have it delivered to your door in a few days and have up to a week to make sure you love it.
“We have a great team in Spain and look forward to delivering the best car buying experience to consumers across the Spanish market.”
Earlier this week, online vehicle platform CarGurus launched CarGurus Digital Deal, a new retail offering that allows shoppers to create personalized deals that meet their budgetary needs through dealers’ listing pages.
Digital Deal is CarGurus’ follow-up to CarGurus Convert, a lead-based initiative which ended its 12-month pilot run earlier this spring. CarGurus said it closed twice as many deals and saw consumers completing checkout at a rate seven times higher than the typical appointment rate.
Through Digital Deal, dealers can access CarGurus’ 31 million unique average monthly consumer visitors in the U.S. with a suite of offerings that includes financing and insurance products, lenders and more.
