Karzoom has joined forces with Hendy Group to offer demonstrator vehicles from the group’s Ford, Mazda, Kia and Honda dealerships at Hendy’s Leigh Road dealerships – a massive change from the traditional car hire operation which would own its own fleet.

Hendy commercial director Mark Busby said:

“This is a totally new way for motorists to hire a car,” said “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 a train station, ferry port or Southampton Airport.

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.

“With so much potential for fantastic days out, family trips, and staycations as the UK re-opens, we can’t wait to get our customers moving.”
