Our commitment to UK dealers

Posted by Sarah Cunningham on April 15, 2020

CarGurus is committed to supporting our dealers in managing through COVID-19 and emerging strong from this crisis. That is why we were first to move in providing rate reductions, ahead of the other large UK automotive marketplace sites. It’s why we’re moving so quickly on product enhancements to enable our dealers to safely engage with buyers through “contactless” interactions to sell cars now and to build pipeline for the weeks ahead. And it’s why we will continue to focus on driving the strongest ROI for dealers vs. our competitors, because we know that now and as we all emerge out of this, dealers will need to get the most out of their marketing spend. 

We believe that CarGurus — with our disruptive, data-driven approach, distinct product offering, and efficient traffic acquisition strategy – is uniquely positioned to help dealers manage through this. As part of our commitment to supporting dealers, we’ve recently rolled out a number of new product enhancements including: 

  • Contactless” buying features to help both buyers and dealers navigate the current car shopping environment 
  • WhatsApp contact methods to continue to connect buyers and dealers on whatever method they prefer 
  • A new search page layout on desktop to improve the shopping experience and performance for dealers 

Although these times are challenging, we’re continuing to invest in growing the performance of our UK site and innovating through new features and functionality. We look forward to sharing continued product updates and delivering a strong ROI for your dealership in the coming months.
