August 3, 202210 MIN READ
The 2nd quarter of 2022 saw average Length of Rental (LOR) for collision replacement-related rentals at 17.7 days, a 4.5-day increase from the 2nd quarter of 2021. This represents a decrease of half a day from the 1st quarter of 2022 when average LOR was 18.2 days. While the overall totals in 2022 are much higher than previous years, this quarter-to-quarter decrease of a half-day fits historical trending from the 1st quarter of the year to the 2nd quarter. While trending seems to be reverting to historical normalcy, the results themselves continue to illustrate a “new normal.”
