Avis partners with OPENLANE to sell ex-rentals to dealers online


Since Avis Budget Group joined forces with OPENLANE in 2007, the auction said it has sold thousands of rental vehicles to dealers in the United States.

“OPENLANE has provided us with a great service over the past several years, reducing our vehicle time-to-sale and streamlining our overall inventory management process,” said Roman Zelyk, director of fleet operations at Avis Budget Group Canada.

“Our expanded partnership will allow us to showcase our wide variety of vehicles to a larger audience and sell more vehicles in a faster and more efficient way.”

The auction company says it provides dealers with a “feature-rich platform and wide array of comprehensive services that make buying and selling wholesale vehicles online seamless.”

“Turnover on my lot is rapid, and I am always looking for vehicles to fill in the gaps and satisfy the needs of my customers,” said Omar Taha, sales manager of Precision Hyundai in Calgary, Alberta.

“OPENLANE provides me with the cars I need quickly and efficiently, and with the addition of Avis Budget Group vehicles to the inventory selection, I will have a greater array of vehicles from which to choose.”
