Türkay Oktay LeasePlan Turkey General Manager, said the first choice for long-term lease is no longer used since the lease is not zero.
Türkay Oktay said, “In 2020, second hand rental has grown even more. With the pandemic, when factories closed and imports slowed, the availability of vehicles in the market decreased. In this context, even companies that rent new cars have started to lean towards second-hand rental, which stands out with its economic aspect. The companies continued to use the tools they used for the second time ”. Emphasizing that the increase in the prices of new vehicles with the exchange rates and the new SCT regulation is also effective in second-hand rental, Türkay Oktay stated that second-hand rental will be an important choice in 2021.
Used leases for the first time implements Türkay Oktay LeasePlan Turkey's General Manager in Turkey, "in 2019, was chosen second-hand rental considerably. In addition, we were able to offer shorter terms and more favorable costs to our customers in second-hand leasing during periods of increased uncertainty, and we were able to make leases for 12, 18 and 24 months. In 2020, second-hand rental grew even more. With the pandemic, when factories closed and vehicle imports slowed, the availability of new vehicles in the market decreased significantly. In this context, even our customers who use new car rental have started to look more favorably to second hand rental. Our customers continued to use the tools they used for the second time ”.
"We rent second hand vehicles even for sale"
Indicating that the increase in the prices of new vehicles together with the exchange rates and the new SCT regulation in this period, as well as the availability of vehicles, Türkay Oktay said, “The availability of new vehicles was a problem, but the fact that new vehicles are now very expensive has also been added to this situation. With the renewed SCT bases, all vehicles became more expensive. Therefore, finding the new vehicle is also a problem, the new rental costs of the new vehicle are also quite high. At the point we come from, we rent used vehicles extensively. We rent so intensely that we can even attract cars that are on sale at our second-hand sales brand, CarNext.com, to re-lease. In 2021, this situation can be balanced a little. "We expect a recovery in the economy, but we think that economic second-hand car rental will continue to be a serious option next year as cost pressures will continue," he said.
