CarNext.com is one of Europe’s fastest-growing digital used car platforms, with B2C sales up 50% in Q1 2018. The platform now 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.
Commenting on the launch of CarNext.com in the UK, Matt Dyer, Managing Director of LeasePlan UK, said:
We’re extremely proud to announce the launch of CarNext.com in the UK. These days customers expect not just a car, but any car, anytime, anywhere and this is exactly what CarNext.com will provide in the used car market. We’re using the latest digital technologies to revolutionise customers’ used car experience. Putting the customer at the heart of our operations, we believe that the quality of our cars and the transparency of our service will give customers the confidence and trust they can’t get elsewhere.
