Cazoo signs up BCA for vehicle refurbishment
Used car platform Cazoo has signed up BCA to provide vehicle logistics, refurbishment and disposal requirements ahead of the firm’s launch later this year.
The start-up, the latest venture from property website Zoopla founder Alex Chesterman, secured £30m of funding late last year and aims to disrupt the used car sector by enabling customers to buy, finance or rent a used car online and have it delivered it their door within 48 hours.
Ahead of the launch of business, Cazoo has appointed BCA to refurbish cars purchased by the firm at various BCA-owned locations, with UK-wide logistics support provided by BCA Automotive. In addition, BCA will provide part-exchange disposal services for Cazoo using the BCA Consumer Appraisal and DealerPro product set, as well as imagery solutions from AutosOnShow.
Paul Whitehead, chief commercial officer at Cazoo, said: “This is an exciting partnership for us as we develop the Cazoo business ahead of our launch later this year. BCA’s expertise in vehicle logistics, refurbishment and disposal will help us rapidly scale the Cazoo business as we seek to deliver the UK’s best used car buying experience for our customers.”
