Turners Auctions and Toyota Financial Services (TFS) have agreed new commercial terms to extend their existing two year relationship. The companies have developed a strong partnership since 2011, built on Turners expertise in vehicle inspections and an ability to continuously innovate.

A cornerstone of the agreement is based on TFS utilising Turners Auto Inspect, an end of term inspection service. The proprietary programme is New Zealand’s largest International Organisation of Standardisation (ISO) and International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ) accredited vehicle inspection service. Turners also manage multiple channels to resell TFS’s lease and ex rental non-Toyota stock.

Turners Auctions CEO, Todd Hunter, says he is looking forward to building on the partnership.

“We are delighted to renew our agreement with TFS and are proud of the shared success we have achieved in a short period of time. It is our commitment to building long-term partnerships that has resulted in this agreement between TFS and Turners.”

TFS have been operating in New Zealand for the past 24 years and have an ethos of going the extra mile for their customers. TFS service 50 Toyota Dealerships nationwide and have offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. They offer a range of vehicle services including finance, leasing and insurance products.

TFS Managing Director Brent Knight says, “The success we have achieved can only be possible with the back end support of companies like Turners. Our customers are our number one priority and Turners allow us to meet their individual needs. We have a high trust relationship with Turners and have full confidence in their vehicle inspection programme.

“We look forward to continued success for both our companies” says Knight.

Turners offer a wide range of specialist channels to market including ex-lease vehicles. For more information, visit
