U.K.-based used car marketplace Cazoo has offloaded another site after agreeing to sell its vehicle preparation center in Livingston, Scotland to Greenhous Group.

The Greenhous Group has agreed to pay an ‘undisclosed fee’ for the 14-acre site and plans to spend around £1 million to refurbish it as part of its expansion plans to focus on the EV sector. The company plans to refurbish up to 20,000 vehicles per year at this site.

Cazoo originally bought the site as part of its takeover of SMH Fleet Solution for £70 million ($85 million) in September 2021 to improve its logistics capabilities.

Cazoo has sold 15 of its 22 U.K. sites since announcing a realignment plan in June 2022, including selling a customer center to Bristol Street Motors in April and a handover site in Grangemouth, Scotland to franchised car dealer group Peter Vardy, also in April. The Vardy group was in advanced talks to buy the Livingston site, but the deal collapsed.

Cazoo agreed a debt restructuring plan with its bond holders last month. It had to do so or it could become liable to repurchase the $630 million of convertible notes, should its shares fall to a level where it could no longer trade on the NYSE.
