The demand for DAF trucks continues to increase in Eastern Europe

20-01-2016, DAF Trucks UK

A new DAF Used Truck Centre has opened in Warsaw, offering an extensive choice of between 100 and 150 low-mileage, quality-approved used DAF trucks. The opening of the DAF Used Truck Centre comes in response to a bouyant used truck market for DAF vehicles in Poland.

The demand for DAF trucks continues to increase in Eastern Europe - not only for new, but also for nearly new trucks. All of the vehicles at the new DAF Used Truck Centre in Warsaw come from the DAF, PACCAR Financial and PacLease organisations.

DAF First Choice security
The majority of DAF vehicles at the Used Truck Centre in Warsaw carry the DAF First Choice marque. DAF First Choice used trucks can also be financed by PACCAR Financial and supplied with MultiSupport Repair and Maintenance contracts.

Successful formula
There are already DAF Used Truck Centres in other cities, including Budapest, Prague and Lyon, where they are combined with a dealership. In addition, there are approximately 100 DAF dealers in Europe that sell DAF First Choice trucks. "The DAF Used Truck Centre in Warsaw is special because it is the first location that focuses completely on selling used vehicles", explains Richard Zink, member of the DAF Board of Management, responsible for Marketing & Sales.

"Bringing together a large number of quality used trucks has proven to be a formula for success. The high reliability and low operating costs of a DAF truck play an important role here, of course, in addition to the high levels of driver comfort. I am not ruling out the possibility that we will open more DAF Used Truck Centres in Europe over the next few years."
