About Karzoom 

If you want a brand-new car with all of the latest features and technology, then buying a new one is an option. But before you do that, you should check out Karzoom! 

There's no longer any need to worry about how much road tax costs or whether or not you can afford the maintenance — because this service takes care of everything!

Karzoom offers an all-inclusive vehicle subscription, direct from franchised Dealers. Last year, they partnered with Hendy Group so now Karzoom powers their Hendy Go car subscription service which is available across the entire South Coast of England. Karzoom has also gone live with their next franchised dealer partner, Perrys FLEX, extending their services to Lancashire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. Also, coming on-board in February will be Brayleys, covering Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, London North, Essex West and Buckinghamshire.

With many more dealers in the pipeline, and aims to cover the UK - What a way to hit the ground running! 

Mike Fazal, the co-founder, describes it best:

“We have established partnerships in place with some of the industry’s major players and intend to grow our partnership network as we expand our service across the UK.  Franchised dealers are best positioned to provide this unique subscription service to their local customers and we are best positioned to support them delivering that service through the use of our technology platform and insurance partner solution from Zego.”

How does Karzoom work?

The process of signing up and subscribing to a vehicle is very similar to other UK car subscription providers. 

New customers normally go through the following steps:

  • Select the location from where you need a car (more locations coming soon) and the required dates and time. 
  • Select a car from the list that is available along with any optional services, such as additional mileage or European cover.
  • Submit your personal details to create an account.
  • You will see an estimated price for your monthly subscription (i.e. including VAT and insurance).
  • Within 24 hours of booking a vehicle, you’ll receive a confirmation of the final price which is based on your individual circumstances (e.g. car insurance checks).

If you’re happy with everything, you can reserve the car by paying for the first month’s rental period and then it will be either available for collection within 7 days or delivered to your home address, where that service is available. You can select a 1 to 3 months subscription and then either renew your agreement or exchange your car for a different one!

Karzoom is focused on working with dealerships across the UK, with new dealers and locations being added all the time.  Meaning customers can look forward to experiencing the same excellent customer service and quality vehicles they are used to from our trusted dealer partners.

  • Comprehensive insurance
  • Servicing & Maintenance
  • Breakdown cover
  • Road tax
  • 1,000 miles per month included as standard

Karzoom charges a refundable security deposit of £500 which is returned at the end of the subscription agreement, provided there are no additional charges that need to be covered (e.g. alloy wheel damage which costs £65 per wheel).

Karzoom car subscription FAQs

How do I collect my vehicle?

You may be able to collect the vehicle in person from a Karzoom dealer partner, however some dealers are only providing home delivery, which may incur an additional charge. This is made clear during the booking process where applicable.

How many miles are included in the monthly subscription?

As standard, all drivers get 1,000 miles per month. When you reserve your vehicle of choice, you’ll have the option to increase this for an additional charge.

Can I take my car abroad?

Yes, for a small additional charge, customers can buy the European Travel Service option, which allows them to drive outside of the United Kingdom. Drivers can then spend any period of up to 30 days in an EU country, for a maximum period of 90 days in any 12-month period.
