Tesco starts selling used cars

Tesco starts selling used cars

LONDON: Britain's largest supermarket chain Tesco has gone into the used car business over the weekend.

The Tescocars.com site was launched on Sunday, and will advertise up to 3,000 cars per week.

"Fresh stock would be added to the website daily," said Tesco, adding that it has a broad range of cars between six months and three years old, including family-sized MPVs, fuel-efficient city cars and executive sedans.

A customer pays a £99 (RM485) fee to reserve a car and the money is refundable in case he decides not to follow through with the purchase.

Tesco retailing services chief executive Andrew Higginson said: "By supplying directly to customers, there is no middle man, no expensive showroom and no salespeople on commission."

Cars come directly from the source and the Royal Automobile Club (RAC) subjects each car to a 167-point inspection, said Tesco.

Aftersales support is provided by some 1,000 independent garages nationwide that charge up to 30% cheaper than franchise dealers, it added.

Tesco is leveraging on the expertise of online dealership Carsite - in which it has a minority stake - to grab a share of the £24bil (RM117bil) automotive market.
