We’re BuyaCar. If you’re looking for a great deal on a car without the hassle of visiting a dealership, then you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve been in business for 15 years, unearthing discounts and developing the easiest way to buy a car.

It all began in a small London flat in 2002 when Austin Collins, an IT consultant with too much spare time, and his brother Oliver, a car salesman, spotted the opportunity to sell cars online.

Within months, they had quit their day jobs and found themselves travelling the country, looking for deals and delivering new cars. Since then, BuyaCar has delivered more than 12,000 cars to happy customers and that number’s growing fast.

We’re no longer run from Austin’s sofa, but based in the London offices of Dennis Publishing - the company behind Auto Express and Evo magazines - which now owns BuyaCar. We’re also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

You can buy online in total confidence, supported by our five-star customer service team - rated by Trustpilot.
