British automotive vertical Cazoo, which will launch later this year, has announced it will tie up with vehicle remarketing company BCA to provide vehicle logistics, refurbishment, and disposal services.
Cazoo was set up by Zoopla founder Alex Chesterman. It’s already received £30 million ($38 million U.S.) in investment and has been assembling its senior management team ahead of its launch. The company aims to disrupt the used car sector by allowing customers to buy, finance or rent a car online and have the vehicle delivered within 48 hours.
BCA will refurbish Cazoo’s cars at a range of BCA-owned locations and offer U.K.-wide logistics support through BCA Automotive. The company will provide Cazoo with part-exchange disposal services using the BCA Consumer Appraisal and DealerPro product set. Cazoo will also use BCA’s imagery solutions from AutosOnShow.
“BCA’s expertise in vehicle logistics, refurbishment and disposal will help us rapidly scale the Cazoo business as we seek to deliver the U.K.’s best used-car buying experience for our customers,” chief commercial officer Paul Whitehead said.
BCA has already started refurbishing vehicles as Cazoo begins to build up its stock levels ahead of its launch later this year.
