Transact fully online or enjoy many new features like Hold Me, Move Me Closer and Help Me Choose to make your in-store experience even more convenient.

Today, 12th August 2021, ZuCar announced the exciting arrival of their ground-breaking multi-faceted new website. Following the successful launch of ZuCar in 2019, it has rapidly become a recognised national car brand selling thousands of cars. Forecasting turnover from launch to reach more than €50m by the end of 2021, the brand is expecting further growth next year.


The Joe Duffy Group continues to expand its footprint with the launch of its latest ZuCar.ie online platform. Whilst having offered online transactions since 2020 and with a larger number of customers increasingly comfortable completing their purchase completely online, ZuCar’s new features makes that journey even easier. In addition to an enhanced online facility, the new platform now offers customers an omni-channel retail experience. They can also choose to purchase physically from one of the three nationwide guest experience centres (in Dublin, Cork and Limerick).With ambitious plans already in place to add at least three more centres by the end of 2022, they plan to be able to offer 90% population cover in Ireland within a one-hour drive time in addition to their nationwide home delivery service. 

With cars of all makes and models online, including petrol, diesel, hybrid and fully electric, any car can be delivered to your home. Online browsing could not be easier with the new enhanced feature Help Me Choose: This is a unique new way to refine your car search by vehicle specification, features and equipment options.

Other new ZuCar.ie features include:

Hold Me: This allows you to hold any car until noon the next day for free and means that the car you are interested in will not be sold. Move Me: Any car can be moved to Dublin, Cork, or Limerick for customers to view and test drive at a location that suits them. Buy Me: This allows customers to reserve a car they were looking at on the platform for €99 or complete the purchase fully online. In addition, the Buy Me feature offers the opportunity to purchase various protection and warranty packages as well as finance and delivery options. 

At ZuCar, they don't only sell cars. They will buy your car even if you don't buy one of theirs.Using the online Value My Caroption, you can enter your vehicle’s details and ZuCar will offer you a price that is valid for five days and with next day payment guarantee.

ZuCar is here to make car buying and selling convenient and straightforward whilst adding transparency and quality. ZuCar takes away the need to travel, to haggle, to spend countless hours at a dealership and to risk any buyer's remorse. With ZuCar, you can purchase or finance a used car entirely online, have it delivered to your door in as little as 72 hours and have 5 days to make sure it fits your lifestyle. And if you don't love your ZuCar, you can return it for a full refund. No questions asked!
