Online used car newcomer Carzam in final stages of launch preparation

Used car sales website Carzam is in the final stages of preparing for launch – and will be live within days.

Carzam is the brainchild of Big Motoring World CEO Peter Waddell and former Cox Automotive International president John Bailey.

The planned October launch was set back by challenges presented by the national lockdown. However, with that ending next week, Carzam’s launch plans have been accelerated.

Carzam will sell good quality, reasonably priced used cars purely online and deliver them to customers’ homes across the country.

It will launch with thousands of used cars on its website, prepared at the group’s dedicated preparation centre in Peterborough.

Peter Waddell – who has coined the phrase ‘from mouse to house’ for the site, said: “We are ready. The cars are prepared and being loaded onto the website and we’re just days away from launch.

‘We are waiting for a final few things to fall into place but I have every confidence the site will be up and running in the early part of December. 

“I am confident customers will be delighted with the cars they buy from us. They will look and feel like new. A used car is a new car to the buyer and with our quality preparation standards it will feel that way.”

Carzam has a senior management team with extensive motor trade experience. Waddell and Bailey have hired a number of other automotive industry heavyweights including former CarShop director Kirk O’Callaghan as its CEO.

Waddell added: “We’ve got a fantastic website that will sell good quality cars at competitive prices. The senior management team has fantastic experience at all levels of the motor trade – from wholesale to used car retailing. We are really excited about the launch.”

Carzam investor John Bailey added: “We are car people with extensive automotive industry experience. We have combined that expertise to create a used car sales website that will accelerate change in this industry.

“We have bought and sold cars as a team for a long time and can see the future is in digital car retailing. That’s why we are launching this site now and we have huge plans for the future.”
