Carwow was established in May 2013. It allows customers to buy cars in a very innovative and unique way.
Contrary to the more traditional shopping and purchase methods, customers at Carwow select the exact vehicle that they would like to purchase, including features, and then they get a variety of offers from dealers. After examining the various offers, the customer can buy from their preferred choice.
The company also lease cars by a similar process.
Customers do not pay to use the service, on the contrary it is the dealers who give money to Carwow for using the platform. Given its model of operation, the company claim to save the customer an average of £3,600 (recommended retail price).
It is worth noting that the company offer a selection of special offers on their website, so it is worth checking to make sure what their latest deals are too.
Buying a car is a big decision and if you are completely unsure or just need some further information to help you to decide, Carwow has a multitude of helpful content on their website. For instance, they have published in-depth buying guides, specifically for different types of cars. These guides help you to decide which car could be the best fit with your specific needs. For example if you own animals, if you need a big boot, if you are on a budget or if you are interested in the latest technology such as an electric car, suggestions can be found here.
There are also many very detailed reviews of cars available in video format, or to read. A range of topics are covered such as the specifications of the cars and their practicality. For each car they also note what deals could be available via Carwow.
To help with other more general details of buying a car and motoring, the website also has copious information. For example, leasing a car is discussed in very great depth, alongside all aspects of car finance.
There are various ways to contact the company. This includes via phone call, text and email. The customer service department of Carwow is open from 8am-7pm on weekdays and from 9am-5.30pm during the weekend.
Carwow has been featured in a variety of important media outlets such as The Telegraph, Financial Times and The Independent.
