Motorpoint is the UK’s leading car supermarket and is on a mission to change the face of car retailing in this country, offering motorists a vast choice of new and nearly new cars all at unbeatable prices, backed by a level of service that is unmatched anywhere else.
The UK has historically paid more for cars, than almost anywhere in Europe. Motorpoint sought to redress the balance by creating a straightforward and transparent pricing policy. Motorpoint now have six branches across the UK, with the seventh branch due to open in Birmingham this July, and have sold cars to every postal area in England and Scotland.
On average, the group sells a car every 7 minutes and last year saved its customers over £170 million, when comparing the discounted price of its cars to the list price. Our business model hasn’t changed since we launched in 1998. Our buying power means we bulk purchase a wide selection of cars from suppliers across the UK and Europe – savings which we then pass on directly to the customer.

For the next five years, Motorpoint is proud to take the naming rights for the Sheffield Arena. Breaking from tradition yet again, the car supermarket has made a seven-figure investment in the city to rename the internationally-renowned venue as “Motorpoint Arena” from August 2010 onwards.
