About Us

Car Audio Direct are one of the UKs largest authorised mobile electronics internet dealers, with over 250,000 satisfied online customers. We are solely an on-line retailer, based in London and we have been serving the public online since 1999.

The History

Car Audio Direct was founded in September 1999. Our company already had a proven 20 year track record as successful automotive accessory retailers and saw an opening in the UK car audio market. At the time most other traditional mail order retailers in the market seemed only interested in pushing products without any form of backup. We saw that by providing a unique blend of marketing, advertising, IT infrastructure, customer service and, of course, the right products at the right prices, we could create a niche. Car Audio Direct was born.


From Car Audio Direct's facility in London our dedicated team provide sales, marketing, technical and after sales service via our main office. We maintain a modern I.T infrastructure to ensure efficient and professional response.

Our enterprise level mail order system offers real time credit card processing, together with PAF assistance and multi-order channels that include telephone, mail, fax, e-mail, web and batch processing. Our ecommerce system is a fully automated web sales processing system. Orders are processed seamlessly throughout the day and maybe processed either in real-time or in batches. Our sophisticated despatch system utilises the latest warehouse technology to ensure the right products are released on time quickly and efficiently.

Our Products

Car Audio Direct works with all the leading audio manufacturers including Clarion, Sony, Kenwood, Pioneer, JVC and Alpine plus a number of smaller specialist manufacturers. Most of us have at some point encountered a salesperson that pushes products onto the customer.
