Selchem Used Car Rental Raises the Bar.Alan Selkon Founder and CEO of the Selchem Holding Group again raises the bar in terms of its Used Car Rental division.Danie Redelinghuys, national sales manager, explained holding deposits on credit cards for luxury vehicles are in the region of R 18000 and above, with rental rates of around the R 8900 per day. Who has this kind of money lying around? The rates on a luxury BMW 750 Li series, Audi A8 and Mercedes S class vehicles are out of reach to the working class. In all honesty, Luxury vehicle hire has only been available to the elect few that hold FNB Wealth, Standard Private Signature, Investec Private bank, RMB and cards alike and even they think carefully before renting vehicles at such exorbitant prices.Let's face it, we all want to spoil our wives to be with a drive to her wedding in a car fit for a queen, or spoil our children with luxury transportation to a matric farewell dance, perhaps we want that luxury car to drive our wives to a special picnic or that business presentation where perception is key to closing the transaction.It was Selchem’s intention when it introduced Used Car Rental, to remain forward thinking, innovative and to redefine the Car Rental stagnant 20-year mindset.The biggest question raised is how do you do it? Simple, cut the big corporate overheads, no extravagant head offices, huge corporate salaries and it's amazing what one can achieve.Used Car Rental luxury vehicles, totally affordable to almost any economic sector. Used Car Rental also offer full chauffeur driven options that are so affordable that perhaps it's more cost effective to utilise Luxury Used Car Rental than owning your own luxury car.Danie Redelinghuys went on to explain that the objective of Alan Selkon of the Selchem Holding Group was to see its Used Car Rental Luxury franchisees network expand into South Africa’s largest luxury fleet car rental market.
