Ireland's first ZuCar used car supermarket opened for business in August 2019 in Eastgate Business Park, Cork with its Limerick superstore opening this Monday in Castletroy. With a spectacular showroom, there will be over 100 cars on display, a coffee shop and a customer research bar. The launch of this new way of buying or selling a car is based on consumer research and aims to serve those who find buying or selling a used car challenging or intimidating. This new consumer offering guarantees a market-leading and transparent fixed priced used car buying experience and offers consumers the opportunity to sell their car, without having to buy one of theirs. ZuCar's analytical based appraisal system for valuing cars ensures that the most competitive price is offered to the buyer and the seller.
At the announcement today, ZuCar General Manager, Barry Higginbotham, said, "We are looking forward to inviting customers to experience our unique and stress-free used car buying and selling service. Our transparent and fixed pricing no-haggle promise will ensure that their experience is enjoyable, efficient, and most importantly, offers great value, and top-quality used cars. The concept is different from beginning to end, and we invite everyone to pop in to see for themselves. Customers can browse at their leisure with no hard sell or a salesperson following them around the showroom. We will also buy cars, even if the customer doesn't want to buy one of ours! There is no hard sell, and we don't pay commission to our sales team. We can also offer ZuCar Finance. This is also great news for Limerick as we hope to generate local jobs as the business grows."
