Chief executive Tom Marley, 39, set up this Wakefield-based online car seller in 2014 to digitalise the car auctions industry. Its software enables customers to receive quotes for their vehicles, which are then collected by the firm’s partners. The software uses machine learning to continually improve the accuracy of its quotes. The group also works with companies that require a car valuation service, such as Confused.com and Motorway.co.uk. It has a free car collection service across the UK. Sales, which includes the value of cars sold, reached £39.1m in the year to March 2018.
