Wakefield Bondholders, the private-sector initiative which aims to promote the Wakefield District as a great place to visit, invest and live, has welcomed The Car Buying Group to its network of members.
Based in Yorkshire, and with a site in Wakefield, The Car Buying Group aims to offer consumers a fair, fast and hassle-free way to sell their car online.
As one of the fastest growing tech companies in the north of England and the number one fastest growing online car buying company in the UK, The Car Buying Group has demonstrated business success on a grand scale. In less than four years, the organisation has reported an impressive revenue of £43.7 million and has changed to a purely 100 per cent collection model.
On joining the Wakefield Bondholder network, CEO and Co-Founder of The Car Buying Group, Tom Marley, comments:
“Having invested in the city it’s really important for us to be an active part of the local business community. Not only does being a member allow us to increase awareness of our business amongst the network of Bondholders, but it also provides a support system of knowledgeable business contacts who are willing to share their insights, advice and comments.”
Tipping the location and close proximity of Wakefield to other major cities as one the huge draws for the business, along with access to professionals who have been educated at some of the outstanding educational institutions which reside in and around the city, Tom appreciates the value that being based in Wakefield has afforded to his business.
Tom said: “Wakefield is such an exciting growth area with superb transport links – Sheffield is only 30 minutes away and London less than two hours! There’s also some great work going on in the education sector which is not only nurturing talent from Wakefield, but also attracting future professionals from Leeds, York and all the way from Sheffield so it really is a central hub for the Yorkshire area.”
Noting that the benefits of the location come without the heftier price tag that can be seen in other major cities, utilising Wakefield as a key location for the business has undoubtedly played a significant role in the astounding success that has been enjoyed by the organisation.
Melissa Armitage, manager at Wakefield Bondholders, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome The Car Buying Group as a member of Wakefield Bondholders. Having clearly enjoyed massive success, the group’s decision to choose Wakefield as the home of one of its sites sends out a clear message about the credentials of the city as a great place to invest.”
Maintaining its customer centric, transparent approach to selling cars, coupled with the business’ commitment to providing a fun and rewarding environment in which to work, has seen the organisation earn a number of prestigious accolades – a list which is sure to continue to grow over the coming years.
