Cazoo launches in Bristol following £1m investment

Cazoo, the online car retailer has today opened its third customer centre in as many weeks, this time in Bristol. Following openings in Manchester and London earlier this month, the latest site has opened today at 832 Bath Road, Bristol.

The location was formerly home to Imperial Cars which was acquired by Cazoo in July and who have since invested £1m into refitting the site and creating 15 new customer-facing and vehicle-servicing jobs. Cazoo has ambitious plans to open a total of 16 sites across the UK before the end of the year, creating over 200 new job opportunities.

As one of the UK’s fastest growing online retailers, Cazoo is developing these sites as local distribution hubs, giving customers the option of collection in addition to home delivery, and service centres to handle all of its customers servicing needs. Customers can browse cars for sale online at the Customer Centre with purchases made entirely online.

Launched last year, Cazoo is pioneering the shift to online car buying in the UK and is already selling thousands of cars a month to customers all across the UK. Since its launch, consumers have been rapidly embracing the transparency and convenience of buying used cars entirely online and the rollout of its local Customer Centres will further enhance the Cazoo offering.

Neil Smith, Retail Director at Cazoo said, “We have been delighted by the overwhelmingly positive response of consumers to our online car buying proposition. With our ever-increasing number of sales, these new Customer Centres will provide more options to our customers on when and how they want to receive their Cazoo car and will allow us to serve them better through our own service centres. We’re excited to be opening in Bristol as we reinvent the car buying experience and continue our mission to provide better selection, transparency, convenience and peace of mind to used car buyers across the UK.”
