- Carzam delivers its 1,000th car after just six weeks
- New digital sales platform on track for 20,000 sales in first full year
- Growth follows senior automotive retail appointments
Just six weeks since it went live, new online digital used car sales platform Carzam has delivered over 1,000 cars, with its senior management team focused on achieving at least 20,000 sales in its first full year of business.
The revolutionary new company, which puts customer service first and foremost, can offer a next-day turnaround on much of its stock and is led by a team of high profile automotive industry experts with unrivalled experience in the motor trade.
“We’ve sold over 1,000 cars already in what’s traditionally a quiet time for the trade and also in the middle of a national lockdown,” said Carzam founder Peter Waddell.
“Those volumes show that we have been ready to go right from the start. We’re on target to sell more than 20,000 cars in our first year as we see buyers turn more and more to online purchasing”
The appeal of Carzam is that buyers can choose their car, finance it and arrange for it to be delivered to their door all from the comfort of their armchair without having to interact with anyone in a high-pressure sales environment, yet they are also reassured by a comprehensive no-quibble guarantee for added peace-of-mind.
Ashley Wade, marketing director of Carzam, said: “Carzam exists to provide a more superior end-to-end e-commerce experience to find, buy, sell and finance used cars online.
“For years research has told us that customers do not enjoy or trust the traditional buying experience. What we provide is a completely transparent and hassle free environment for customers to shop – after all, a car is a major purchase and it’s not right that you should feel under pressure to commit to buying one in a showroom environment if that’s not somewhere you’re comfortable.
“Consumer buying behaviours have been shifting online for years and as automotive moves into the online environment we are able to offer our customers the same convenient home service that they receive from many non-automotive retailers.”
Led by Big Motoring World CEO Peter Waddell and backed by former Cox Automotive boss John Bailey, the depth of motor trade experience inside Carzam is incredibly comprehensive.
Carzam offers a huge choice of approved used cars, prepared through its central hub at Peterborough, Cambs. It is hosted at www.carzam.co.uk and as well as home delivery cars can be collected at two centres, one in London and another in Corby . With a new collection point planned for the very near future.
