Ireland’s Revolutionary Used Car Superstore & Digital Dealership

Launches online deposits for customers.

ZuCar has seen an increase in its website activity with customers using their recently launched online deposit facility to secure the purchase of a used car from their extensive range of quality used cars. ZuCar’s retail concept provides a market leading and transparent fixed priced used car buying experience along with a digital appraisal system for valuing cars. This system allows prospective customers to get a part exchange valuation remotely from the comfort and safety of their own home. With the addition of online deposits to their website, ZuCar customers can now fully complete their purchase online.

ZuCar General Manager, Barry Higginbotham, said, " “With the Covid 19 restrictions and our doors being physically closed, we have seen a big shift in the usage of our online platform, ZuCar.ie, and our recently launched online deposit payment option, which is very encouraging. Over the past few weeks, we have seen a strong level of enquiry, have had many used car orders placed with deposits paid, and people browsing and asking questions via our live chat and tele support team. This remote platform enables consumers who were considering buying or now have a need to buy a used car, to have the ability not to have to wait until the restrictions are lifted to have completed their research and paid their deposit to secure the car they want. In addition, planning for post-restriction purchases, potential customers are requesting finance quotations and valuations. We believe with social distancing measures likely to be in place for quite some time, more and more people will do most of their research online and there will be a fundamental shift in consumer buying behaviour towards this digital model over the next few months. When we reopen our doors after lockdown, we will also be offering a contactless home delivery service or a “move me closer” option to have the car they are interested in moved to one of our view and collection points around the country. We are very excited about this as it will allow us to broaden our national reach and offer further convenience for customers” .
