Case Study

The Car Spot

The Car Spot is a used car business with the aim to change the way people buy and sell their cars. This new business wanted to take a lead from the way the current generation of buyers value a brand’s trust level and openness; building strong relationships with customers in order to benefit from referred and repeat business.

Design and development of new website for The Car Spot


The new website needed to be a showcase for the newly conceived brand identity, and support the big idea - ‘A better way to change your car.’ It also needed to convey the business as being innovative, fresh, friendly and transparent and clearly introduce its new product - a ‘sell on your behalf’ proposition.

We needed to deliver a modern, lifestyle led website with the feel of a new generation site, but with the functionality required to satisfy the more traditional customer.



The bright and engaging style of the website makes best use of The Car Spot’s modern, fresh brand incorporating bold colours, friendly images and clear messages.

Simple and clear language directs the user to the most appropriate area of the site for them - BUY, SELL, FINANCE - with the layout of each page designed to deliver the information required by the customer quickly and effectively; from used cars available to buy, to a clear explanation of the ‘sell your car’ model.


As the client already utilised a platform to enter all stock details that linked to Autotrader, we needed to integrate the same software into the new website, ensuring that the client would only need to enter the data once.

We also needed to integrate a credit / finance calculator to allow customers to quickly find out potential monthly payments, deposit and length of finance agreement, as well as actually apply for HP Finance.

"Right from our initial meeting, we knew that we wanted to use Applied Digital to create our new website. We liked how the first conversations were centred around the functionality and how the technical aspects of the site would work, as there were a few bits of external software to bring together.

Later when we discussed the 'look and feel', we were really pleased that they understood how the site needed to be as simple and user friendly as possible. It's a clean, modern, bold website which really reflects our brand and we're delighted with it!

The team are quick, responsive, efficient, super easy to work with and just 'get it' - thanks to everyone who worked on this project for us!"
