Ireland’s first ZuCar used car supermarket has opened for business in Eastgate Business Park in Cork, which is expected to generate 25 jobs over the next 12 months.
The new facility will feature over 200 used cars of all makes and models, including petrol, diesel, hybrid and electric on display. There is also a coffee shop and a customer research bar.
ZuCar aims to provide a different way of buying or selling a used car by offering a transparent fixed priced used car buying experience and giving consumers the opportunity to sell their car, without having to buy one of theirs. ZuCar uses an analytical based appraisal system for valuing cars to ensure competitive prices for the buyer and seller.
ZuCar General Manager, Barry Higginbotham explains: “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. Our ZuGuides are here to help, not to hound.
“ZuCar offers unrivalled peace of mind with a five-day money-back guarantee, which means that if a customer is not entirely happy, they can hand the car back for a full refund within five days of purchase. We also offer a 30-day exchange policy, so If a customer wishes to exchange the car within the first 30 days from date of purchase, they can.
“The concept is different from beginning to end, and we invite everyone to pop in to see for themselves. We have a coffee shop so that 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. Our sales ZuGuides are non-commissioned. We can also service any car and offer ZuCar Finance in association with Bank of Ireland. This is also great news for Cork as we hope to generate over 25 new jobs as the business grows.”
