Cazoo continues rapid expansion in Essex

Cazoo has opened its latest Customer Centre in Lakeside Retail Park, Essex. This marks the 20th collection and drop-off location opened by the online car retailer in the last 15 months.

The site was acquired earlier this year and Cazoo has since invested over £1m and created 20 new local customer-facing and vehicle-servicing jobs. These sites provide customers with the added option of collecting cars they purchase online from Cazoo or dropping off cars they sell online to Cazoo.

The company, which owns and fully reconditions all of the cars it sells before offering them online for either home delivery or collection in as little as 72 hours, is planning to open a further 12 Customer Centres across the UK over the next 12 months.

Alex Chesterman, founder and CEO of Cazoo said: “Consumers across the UK are increasingly embracing the proposition of buying and selling cars entirely online, given the better selection, value, transparency and convenience. Our Customer Centres further enhance that proposition by giving customers the option of collecting a car they buy from us or dropping off a car they sell to us if they prefer. And these sites allow us to better serve our customers with our own service centres. We’re excited to be opening in Lakeside as we continue our mission to provide the best car buying and selling experience to consumers across the UK.”
