2008 – Founding AutoBoca in Radauti city
Founding AutoBoca was determined by our desire to offer clients a professional and trustworthy rent a car service. Our road to quality started in Radauti city, where we began to offer car renting services to all that needed good cars for a specific period of time. Because we are a company with 100% Romanian capital, we have developed a professional service that clients can use without any problems whatsoever. In the starting fleet we only had 5 cars.
In Radauti respect for quality and professionalism matters and we managed to win people’s trust by offering them access to good cars. Furthermore, in the beginning, our first clients (friends and various acquaintances) were so pleased with our services that they recommend us to other people. Using the feedback we got from clients, we carefully developed a service that caught the attention of the local community.
2009 – Suceava Agency
Our first step in expanding at a regional level was done with the grand opening of Suceava office. This is where we had an initial fleet of 5 premium cars, with models like Audi TT and Mercedes Benz ML. Because we were able to impress our clients with the services given, we managed to extend our fleet by adding Dacia Logan into the offer.
Due to our seriousness and passion for professional services, we attracted a new clientele. The success of our Suceava activity determined us to continue the extension process in Moldova region.
2010 – 5 employees + 3 collaborators in Botosani, Vatra-Dornei and Bacau

2011 – Bacau Agency
The opening of Bacau agency, at only 100 meters from the “George Enescu” international airport represented an important step in our desire to offer clients access to serious services.
In addition, we started to work with collaborators in Onesti and Comanesti. This is how we wanted to make sure that the people in Bacau could use professional services with ease.
2012 – Iasi Agency and Bucharest Baneasa Agency

The Bucharest agency represented a premiere for us, because we extended Autoboca services in Romania’s capital city.
2013 – Otopeni airport agency; Operational Leasing division
Due to the success registered by Baneasa agency, we opened an office in Henri Coanda international airport (Otopeni), right in the hallway passage from the Arrival and Departures Terminals. Later on we have developed our own office in the immediate vicinity of the airport, in order to offer clients a breathing room after a long flight. This is where they are greeted by a free bottle of water, very appreciated during the hot summer season. From our new Otopeni office, clients can pick up and inspect the car in peace and without stress.
The year 2013 meant the development of a professional Leasing Operational division. At the dire demand of clients, we also developed trustworthy car renting services on medium and long term periods. The 3SLease package and the different operational leasing offers present various advantages to firms.

Welcome to Transylvania! Opening an office in Cluj Napoca, close to “Avram Iancu” international airport with a fleet that included 15 cars, was well received by clients who use frequently car renting services. Furthermore, we developed car renting services accessible for medium and long term periods of time. In the second part of the year, we opened an office in Targu Mures, also close to the airport.
2016 – 250+ cars in the fleet
AutoBoca fleet had over 205 cars. In order to accommodate different transport needs, we have included in the fleet minibuses, small cars, standard, compact and SUVs. Each client managed to find in our fleet a car perfect for the road ahead.
