How does using a verified dealer work?

At Zuto, we’re proud to give customers choice and flexibility. You’re free to buy a car from any reputable UK dealership, but we have our own list of approved dealers to give you added peace of mind.

What is a verified dealer?

You might be wondering what we mean by ‘verified dealers’. Put simply, Zuto will only work with car dealers who deliver the level of service we believe our customers deserve. Quality and reliability is something we monitor closely.

How does Zuto choose the best car dealers?

To ensure customers are protected, all Zuto car dealers must go through a number of checks to become verified:

  • We will undertake a credit check for all new dealers.
  • We monitor our business history with all dealers and will not work with those who do not meet Zuto’s own customer values
  • We will not work with any dealer who has been found guilty of fraud, or for who we have received numerous customer complaints about. 
  • Our sales team monitor Car Dealer Reviews to ensure the dealerships we are already working with are meeting the general public’s expectations

Through building strong working relationships with the country’s best car dealers, we’re able to offer reassurances that you’re purchasing from a reputable source and able to offer a seamless customer journey, taking the hassle out of financing a car.

Do you work with dealers in my area?

We work with verified approved dealers across the whole of the UK. Once approved, you’ll be able to view all vehicles available within your My Zuto account area.

The purpose of the Zuto recommended dealer scheme is to create a network of trusted lenders across the UK. It also gives our you access to a wide range of vehicle make and models, so you can choose the car that best-suits your needs.

And by offering a varied selection of local dealerships, we also provide you with the flexibility to purchase in an environment you’re comfortable in. If there’s a dealer you had in mind but is not on the list, we’d recommend getting in touch to discuss this further.

For even more help and advice, whatever stage of the car buying journey you’re at, get in touch with our team of dedicated experts.
