The obstacle in light commercial vehicle rental has been lifted

After the partial removal of the obstacle to light commercial vehicle rentals in Turkey as of 2019, the new arrangement in June 2021 paved the way for rentals in this direction. A commercial vehicle self-ownership requirement for issuing the K2 certificate, which is required for commercial vehicle use, has been removed. Within the scope of the "Regulation on Amending the Road Transport Regulation" made by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, companies carrying their own products will now be able to obtain the K2 certificate by renting their commercial vehicles.

Offering comprehensive solutions to both passenger and light commercial vehicle customers and welcoming this positive development, LeasePlan aims to raise light commercial vehicle rentals much higher in this direction. Evaluating the issue, LeasePlan Turkey General Manager Türkay Oktay said, “First of all, this is a very pleasing development. A positive step was taken about 1,5 years ago within the scope of leasing light commercial vehicles. However, the phrase “must have at least 2 unit of vehicle” in the K1 Authorization Certificate, which is required from companies that will transport in their own field, was a major obstacle to leasing, especially for SMEs and companies engaged in transportation with a single light commercial vehicle. With the revision made here, the way of leasing has been opened for companies that need a light commercial vehicle. In this way, these companies can also choose to rent the light commercial vehicles they have acquired without incurring the purchase cost, and they can benefit from the advantageous world of operational leasing with a fixed monthly rental fee that includes operational costs such as maintenance, repair, inspection and tires. With this development, we think that both the fleet leasing sector and the light commercial vehicle sector in the Turkish automotive market will accelerate and grow.”

The phrase “must have at least 2 unit of vehicle” for the K1 Authorization Certificate required from companies that transport goods related to their main field of activity and do not make any profit from transportation is regulated with a newly added clause. Thus, the scope of light commercial vehicle leasing has been expanded by taking into account the vehicles procured through long-term leasing contracts in K2 authorization certificate applications. Offering comprehensive solutions to both passenger and light commercial vehicle customers and welcoming this positive development, LeasePlan aims to raise light commercial vehicle rentals much higher in this direction. Evaluating the issue, LeasePlan Turkey General Manager Türkay Oktay said, “First of all, this is a very pleasing development.

“We Expect an Increase in Commercial Vehicle Rental Demands”

Stating that the obstacles to the leasing of light commercial vehicles have completely disappeared, Oktay said; “We expect the HTA vehicle parks of all companies, but especially SMEs, that will no longer have to bear the acquisition cost, to be renewed. In our market, which has long vehicle renewal deadlines due to high purchasing costs, companies that want to renew their light commercial vehicles will be able to move forward with monthly rental fees with this development. We, as LeasePlan, are seriously raising our targets with our expanding commercial vehicle fleet and with the diversified and privileged services we offer to our SMEs and fleet customers.”

LeasePlan raises the target in commercial vehicle rental!

Underlining that as LeasePlan, they will raise the bar even higher with the new regulation in light commercial vehicle rentals, Oktay said, “The regulation in question; It is a very pleasing development for our customers, who currently need a single HTA, as well as the growth of the sector. We already as LeasePlan; As of 2019, after the removal of the first important obstacle, we launched our commercial vehicle rental campaigns at great speed and continued to offer light commercial vehicles suitable for budget and needs in all our sales channels, including tiklakirala.com. We will continue our concrete steps on this path,” he said.
