About CarQuake

Setup in 2006 by two chaps, Tim and John... CarQuake came out of a simple question:

"Why is buying new cars online so difficult and time-consuming?"

The best way to see how we answered that question is to watch our video:


Direct Contact - Wherever Possible

Thus CarQuake was born. to provide the buyer with a totally transparent process. You find the new car that you want, then, if the deal is good, you get in contact direct with the dealer making the best offer to you.

In certain franchises, we have found that there is pressure for dealers not to offer direct discounts, and in these instances we have offered the next best option - reliable UK businesses with long-term relationships with UK franchised dealers.

And we provide you with choice too - unlike other websites who tie up cosy deals with one or two suppliers, we have invited all franchised dealers across the UK to participate in CarQuake. There are no hidden charges to the customer either - the dealers using CarQuake pay to advertise through the website.

The Carquake Promise

Due to the highly competitive nature of CarQuake dealers, we promise you::

  • Some of the cheapest prices on new cars direct from franchised dealers
  • Prices including 12 months Road Fund License, 1st Registration Fee, and (where indicated) delivery to your door
  • No hidden charges

We do the hard work for you... Saving you time and money!

Are We The Easiest Way to Buy a New Car?

Our aim is to bring buyers and sellers of new cars together (and not to get in the way!). We believe this makes CarQuake the easiest way to buy a new car - avoid complications of brokers, or showroom haggle hassles...
