Safe Vehicle Sales System
TruckStore eliminates the problems in the payment process, which are frequently encountered in second hand sales, with its “Safe Vehicle Sales System”. With the "Safe Vehicle Sales System", which works in integration with the infrastructure of the Notaries Union of Turkey, the seller acts safely knowing that when the vehicle is registered to the buyer by the notary, the price will be transferred to the account, and the buyer will not be transferred to the seller before the vehicle is registered. In addition, the situation of carrying cash is eliminated during the sales process. With this system, efforts to become the reliable address of the 2nd hand are further strengthened.
Parallel to the increase in truck mobility, which is the most important building block of the supply chain that ensures the continuity of daily life with the effect of the pandemic, significant increases are also experienced in the second hand market. The TruckStore team makes a difference by offering more than one solution to its customers in this busy period. Thanks to the clearing, credit, insurance and second-hand sales opportunities offered within TruckStore, the needs of customers are solved at one point.
Contribution to sustainability with ToolStore
The "ToolStore" formation, which enables the Hoşdere Bus Factory and Aksaray Truck Factory and the Head Office campus to sell equipment and materials that have completed their operating life, also contributes significantly to sustainability.
The main purpose of the establishment of ToolStore is to ensure that the equipment scrapped due to reasons such as obsolescence, inefficiency and increase in maintenance costs can be evaluated by other companies according to the standards of the main enterprises. The equipment, which was previously sold in scrap status and in scrap valuation, is sold to end users with the assurance of the brand's new formation, ToolStore. This new formation was initiated for sustainability and aims to take place in the market under the name of ToolStore.
