CarNext.com launches in UK
CarNext.com, a disruptive digital high-quality used car platform, launched in the UK.
Using a proprietary, data-driven model, CarNext.com allows drivers to buy, lease or finance high-quality three to four-year-old cars.
CarNext.com is one of Europe’s fastest-growing digital used car platforms, with B2C sales up 50% in Q1 2018. The platform operates in 16 countries, and has seen its used car-as-a-service business grow sharply.
Ewout van Jarwaarde, managing director of CarNext.com commented, ‘When customers buy, lease or finance a used car, they are at a massive knowledge disadvantage. It takes a lot of research to know what’s happened in a car’s past life or what it’s worth today. The CarNext.com model uses data to address this, to put drivers in charge and bring trust and transparency back to the used car market. At CarNext.com we don’t sell, we help you get your next car.’
Customers select their car online at CarNext.com, where they can view the vehicle’s ownership and maintenance history alongside high-quality 360° imagery and videos. Prices are fixed and customers buy from CarNext.com at competitive prices.
Customers can then either have their vehicle delivered direct to their doors or to a delivery store, where they can take a test drive before making a final decision. The first UK Delivery Store has just opened in Milton Keynes with over 70 vehicles on site for customers to peruse. Over time, the platform will also provide used car subscriptions services in the UK.
