Motorists in Salisbury will be among the first to experience a new car hire service.

The city has been chosen as a pilot area for a brand new car hire service from Karzoom, which is looking to capitalise on increased demand from motorists wanting short term car use.

Karzoom has joined forces with Hendy Group to offer used vehicles from the group’s Nissan, Toyota, Renault and Dacia fleets in Salisbury – a massive change from the traditional car hire operation that would own its own fleet.

“This is a totally new way for motorists to hire a car,” said Hendy commercial director Mark Busby.

“Motorists will be able to hire one of our demonstrator vehicles giving them an almost brand new car and at easy to access locations in the area.

“This partnership means we can provide our local communities with a unique, new way to access car hire. We know that customer mobility needs are constantly evolving and with this new service we can deliver the right solutions to drivers.”

Motorists can hire a car from one day to 60 days with all cars available on a fully-inclusive basis and typically less than a year old.

Everything can quickly and easily be booked online and collected from a driver’s selected Hendy dealership or from the customer’s chosen pick up point, such as outside Salisbury train station.

Melanie Fazal, Karzoom co-founder and operations director, said: “We are delighted to launch with such a reputable dealership group, and look forward to revolutionising car hire.”
