LeasePlan today launched its CarNext.com used car platform in the UK which allows drivers to buy, lease or finance its ex-fleet cars.
The leasing giant already operates CarNext.com in 15 other countries, and this is being introduced in the UK as part of its ‘What’s Next’ brand campaign announced last year.
Matt Dyer, managing director of LeasePlan UK, said: “We’re extremely proud to announce the launch of CarNext.com in the UK.
“These days customers expect not just a car, but any car, anytime, anywhere, and this is exactly what CarNext.com will provide in the used car market.
“We’re using the latest digital technologies to revolutionise customers’ used car experience.”
Customers select their cars online, where they can see the vehicle’s ownership and maintenance history alongside 360 degree imagery and videos.
Prices are fixed and customers can either have their vehicle delivered direct to their doors or to a deliver store, where they can take a test drive before making a final decision.
The first UK delivery store has opened in Milton Keynes and has around 70 vehicles on site. Over time, the platform will also provide used car subscriptions services in the UK.
As well as the UK, to date, CarNext.com has been launched in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey.
