What our customers are saying
We needed a nice new car on a short term lease. It proved so complicated, then we rang Cocoon Vehicles. The took our details and arranged a meeting for the next day. The same day we had a selection of vehicles to choose from what met our budget. We chose a car and signed the docs digitally (this makes it so simple) and took delivery 48 hours after our first meeting. Thats what I call amazing service. They can also source outright vehicle purchases.
I would recommend Cocoon to anyone looking for any type of car, either short term / long term hire or direct purchase. Support a local Derbyshire company and get a great service.
