- The process of buying a used car is about to be given a significant shake-up with the launch of the first used car superstore on the Internet.
Automotive retailer CarLand has launched what it claims is an innovative real-time Website which allows users to browse the CarLand store and view all cars currently available.
CarLand is convinced that the site will prove another nail in the coffin of the 'dodgy dealer'. For online growth potential CarLand points to the US where 20 per cent of cars are bought this way. UK consumers spend £26 billion a year on used cars,
The Website will initially feature 500 cars located at CarLand's flagship store in Lakeside Retail Park in West Thurrock.
The Website includes a 360 viewer, allowing visitors to see all aspects of the cars on sale, a finance calculator to work out repayment details, a store locator and details of CarLand's CarCover insurance and finance package.
