Welcome to Wagonex

 

Wagonex is a start-up born out of the frustration with owning cars and no longer wanting to own them. Some of our team are old enough to have owned many and others are young enough to never want to own one. We asked ourselves, why do we continuously borrow large sums of money in a long-term commitment and pay interest to buy cars that depreciate the second you drive them away? "We need to build the Netflix for Cars" and the idea for Wagonex was born. 

A simple idea with an elegant solution that one price covers everything but fuel. Behind the scenes is a complex technology stack and many partners of all shapes and sizes that go towards providing a seamless service to our customers. We feel that cars should no longer be a burden but a service!

Based in East London, we have come a long way in a short space of time. Being able to have a car for a month at a time and switching whenever you choose is incredible. The ability to have an SUV for the winter and convertible for the summer was our goal and now a reality. Our team is very excited by the potential Wagonex has to make a difference in a huge market that is in need of dramatic change.
