A new used car marketplace from the man who created LoveFilm and Zoopla launches today. Cazoo aims to make buying a used car simpler.

The entire process of buying from Cazoo is online, with home delivery offered. The difference here is that Cazoo actually owns all the cars it stocks, with each prepared and readied for sale at its 55-acre facility in the Midlands.
