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 the Wagonex all-inclusive flexible car subscriptions 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 subscription service!
Based in Shoreditch, East London, we began our existence within a venture agency and have had to grow up very quickly. Our tech team has considerable experience in V.C. backed businesses. The data driven marketing team have a proven track record. Our team of experts and advisors covers automotive, insurance, technology, e-commerce, marketing, finance & regulation.
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 through subscription 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. Please take a look, if you haven’t already, sign up to the platform and we look forward to keeping you posted with updates and news.
Toby is the driving force behind Wagonex, fueled by 25 years of frustration with car ownership. With a long history in finance, risk management and latterly technology he brings a wealth of business acumen having founded and managed several companies.

Joakim joined Wagonex at the beginning of 2018 and rapidly became a key team member. Formerly of Tesla and having managed part of their early fleet into the UK he is a wealth of knowledge surrounding anything EV. Being from Norway caring for the environment has been drilled in from an early age and we expect our fleet of EV’s to reflect his influence.
When not driving the growth of our fleet he is very likely to be at the nearest craft ale tasting…#EV

We are a marketplace platform and subscription service that provides our members with access to vehicles, which are supplied by manufacturers, dealers or fleet managers.
1.1What these terms cover. These Terms govern your use of our service. We are Wagonex Limited, and our registered office is at Acre House, 11-15 William Road, London NW1 3ER. Our company number is 10312289. Our registered VAT number is 256 9599 39. You are the individual using the services that we provide for your personal use, and not for use in connection with your trade, business, craft or profession.
1.2Why you should read them. Please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide our services to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information.
2.1How to contact us. You can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.2How we may contact you. If we have to contact you we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us in your order.
2.3Writing includes emails. When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
2.4We act as agents. This means that when you have selected a vehicle, you enter into a contract through us, as agent for the vehicle provider. So, for example, if you select a Mini, you will enter into a contract that has us as the other party, but we in turn are actually entering into the contract with you on behalf of BMW, the BMW dealer or fleet manager. We are an intermediary, or agent, or broker – those words all mean the same thing.
3.1Subscription. For the monthly subscription option, your subscription will run for an initial one month, and then continue month-to-month until terminated. You must pay us monthly in advance, each month. Unless you cancel your contract one week before the contract renewal date you authorize us to charge your next month's fee to your chosen payment method (see the "Your rights to end the contract" section below). To use our service, you must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment, which you may update from time to time ("Payment Method"). You can find specific details regarding your membership with us by visiting our website and clicking on the "My Account" link available at the top of the pages of our website under your profile name.
For the six monthly and yearly subscription option, your subscription will run for the duration of the selected term. You must pay us monthly in advance, each month. Should you cancel your membership before the termination i.e. mid-term, you will be liable for 50% of the total remainder of your contract charged to your chosen payment method (see the "Your rights to end the contract" section below). To use our service, you must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment, which you may update from time to time ("Payment Method"). You can find specific details regarding your membership with us by visiting our website and clicking on the "My Account" link available at the top of the pages of our website under your profile name.
3.2A deposit will be taken on request only in exceptional circumstances. That means that you pay us both the deposit and the first month's fee on the contract agreement date.
3.3How we will accept your subscription. Our acceptance of your subscription will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.4How we will accept your vehicle order. Our acceptance of your vehicle order will take place when we email you to accept it and you have paid for the first month, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
3.5If we cannot accept your vehicle order. If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this in writing. This might be because the vehicle is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because the consumer checks we have obtained for you do not meet our minimum requirements, because you have an excessive number of penalty points on your driving license, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the vehicle or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
3.6Your vehicle order number. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.7We only supply in the UK. Our website is solely for the promotion of vehicles in the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from addresses outside the UK.
4.1Billing Cycle. The first monthly payment will be billed on agreement of the contract, and subsequent monthly payments will be billed a calendar month apart on the corresponding date of delivery/pick up of your vehicle, this is known as the contract renewal date. In some cases the timing of your billing may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month.
4.2Payment Methods. You can change your Payment Method by visiting our website and clicking on the "My Account" link. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not change your Payment Method or cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have obtained a valid Payment Method. You authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates.
4.3Changes to the Price and Service Plans. We may change our service plans and the price of our service from time to time; however,
4.3.1With rolling monthly subscriptions the standard 30 day notice applies. This means that any price changes or changes to our service plans will not apply to you earlier than 30 days following our email notice to you.
4.3.2Six monthly and yearly subscriptions will complete their terms unaffected and any price changes will apply to subsequent contracts.
Passwords. You should not share your password nor the Payment Method details with anyone. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the accuracy of the information that you provide to us relating to your account with us.
Vehicles may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of vehicles on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the vehicle. Your vehicle may vary slightly from those images.
If you wish to make a change to the vehicle you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the vehicle, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
8.1This is a contract for a subscription to receive goods. We will supply the services to you until you end the contract as described in clause 9 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 10.
8.2We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the vehicles is delayed by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any vehicles you have paid for but not received.
8.3Collection by you. In general, you need to contact the dealer directly to agree those arrangements. If you want to you can collect the vehicle from the dealer, alternatively, we or the dealer will arrange delivery of the vehicle to you.
8.4When you become responsible for the vehicle. You are responsible for the vehicle from the moment you collect it, or if agreed, from when it is delivered to you.
8.5You do not own the vehicle. All vehicles used under our service remain the property of the dealer, and do not become yours.
8.6What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We will need certain information from you so that the vehicle can be supplied to you, for example, confirmation that you hold a driving licence with fewer than 9 penalty points on it. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying a vehicle late or not supplying it at all if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
8.7We will need updated information. You must notify us if you receive any additional penalty points on your licence. We may also contact the supplier of the vehicle to obtain this information. This is a key obligation on you. Should you not disclose any changes to your licence we retain the option of cancelling your contract with immediate effect. Should you exceed the maximum of 9 points on your licence we will terminate the contract with immediate effect.
8.8Reasons we may suspend the supply of a vehicle to you. We may have to suspend the supply of a vehicle to:

8.9Your rights if we suspend the supply of vehicles. We will contact you in advance to tell you we will be suspending supply of the vehicle, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency.
8.10We may suspend supply of the vehicles if you do not pay. If you do not pay us when you are supposed to, we may suspend your contract, and take all steps that we consider appropriate to take back a vehicle that is in your possession under your membership of our programme. Vehicles may be fitted with tracking devices, and devices that stop the vehicle from moving when safe to do so, which we may activate it you do not pay us money you owe to us.
9.1You can always end your contract with us. You may be able to get a refund if you are within a 14 day cooling-off period (see the next paragraph), but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any vehicle. For details on ending your contract outwith this 14 day cooling-off period please see Clause 3.1.
9.2Exercising your right to change your mind as a consumer (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). As a consumer, you have a legal right to change your mind about your subscription within 14 days and receive a refund. This 14 day period begins the day after you receive, or collect, the car. If, during that time, you have already taken a vehicle, you will need to return it promptly to the dealer, and pay any reasonable costs of doing so.

13.1.1 to supply the vehicles to you;
13.1.2 to process your subscription and any payment in connection with the vehicles.
13.2In some cases We have installed a tracking device on each vehicle. That means that we, and the tracking company that we use, are able to track the vehicle at all times. We only use that data to know where the vehicle is, and only plan to use it to recover the vehicle (including by notifying law enforcement and emergency service providers) and for insurance purposes.
13.3We will only give your personal information to third parties where the law either requires or allows us to do so. We may share your information with vehicle dealers in connection with any vehicle you wish to have supplied to you.

14.7Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
14.8Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings if you are a consumer. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the vehicles in the English courts.
