Founded by brothers Noel and Darren McKee in 2006, this Rochdale business buys 100,000 vehicles a year from customers who get an instant valuation by entering their car details on its website. The company, which was demerged from UK Car Group last year, has 120 branches nationwide where cars can be dropped off and paperwork finalised. The vehicles are then sold on through dealers and franchise networks. Sales have grown 82% a year from £52.3m in 2007 to £315.1m in 2010, aided by catchy advertising on television and by the company’s own valuation software.
