LeasePlan UK has started CarNext.com, their internet based used vehicle marketplace hoping to change the normal dealer market by introducing home delivers.
Customers can choose to have their used car purchase dropped off at a location of their choice or pick it up or test drive from a “delivery store”. While the UK business has only gone live today following a soft launch, the UK website is showing 128 vehicles in stock.
The first carnext.com used car dealership has opened in Milton Keynes at Northfield Drive with over 70 vehicles on site. Over time, the platform will also provide used car subscriptions services in the UK.
CarNext.com takes ex-lease cars that are between three to four years old and offers them to retail used car customers to buy, lease, or finance.
LeasePlan has now launched the business across 16 different global markets and has seen B2C sales increase by 50% in Q1 this year.
